This is such an inspiring tutorial! The finished piece is very beautiful and dreamy, the colours match perfectly Heart

If you don't mind me asking, what scanner did you use for it? It seems to pick up your watercolours beautifully //*.*\\

I'm very happy to know this tutorial is helping people :heart:

My scanner is nothing magical. It is a Multifunction HP printer. I always have to edit my drawings because the scanned colours are always a bit dull and too dark. Maybe one day I'll make a tutorial on this subject :)

You must be an ace editor then, because your artwork looks so lovely * . *

Oh and btw can you tell me some good brands of watercolours? I used to have watercolours but they were terrible and couldn't make much colour onto paper

LonelyFullMoon Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Student General Artist
Hahah xP I used cheap brand watercolors for a long time and they were terrible. Then I tried Winsor&Newton and they're really good. Some of my friends used Van Gogh watercolors but some colors were too bright x.x I like them a bit more neutral :3

e sim, tenho umas duvidas: 1º: qando pintaste o cabelo dela de uma cor base, q tipo de pinceis, ou técnica, utilizaste pra q a tinta ficassa tão uniforme? e 2º;(é mais uma cena q me aconteceu) quanto á pele, tentei uma vez fazer cor de pele mas ficou demasiada amarelada ^^; costumo fazer misturas de castanho claro e laranja com branco qd uso guaches, mas acho q desta vez n resultou ^^;

1. Para o cabelo usei um pincel nº5 e um mais fino para as pontas do cabelo que são mais pequenas. Sobre ficar uniforme não sei bem o que queres dizer mas eu fiz assim: fiz uma boa quantidade de mistura para a cor do cabelo (para não faltar antes de acabar a primeira camada. Se tivesse que voltar a fazer a mistura a cor já não ia ficar bem igual) e fui aplicando. Tens que ser um pouco rápida para não secar porque depois fica mais escuro se passares outra vez por cima xP

2. Quanto à cor de pele, às vezes algumas cores variam um pouco, e alguma que usaste podia ser um pouco mais amarelada. Mas não sei bem. Se voltar a acontecer talvez possas tentar adicionar um pouco de vermelho ou rosa.

Espero ter conseguido ajudar em alguma coisa. Se tiveres mais alguma dúvida é só perguntar ^_^

SamSilver-chan92 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
sim, ajudou-me e muito. Muito obrigada ^^ vamos lá ver se desta vez faço um trabalho tão bom como o teu XD

e na pele, sim, talvez tente essa mistura, é que, por enquanto, ando a utilizar canetas de alcool pra pintar as zonas da pele, e depois o resto pinto a aguarela. mas eu agora ando a trabalhar num cover a aguarelas, tá a ser dificil pois tem muito preto e gostaria de fazer o efeito de gotas de sangue no fundo, mas uma coisa de que gostei foi a forma como fiz os efeitos das sombras(depois posto e envio ok? ^^)

mais uma vez, obrigada pelos conselhos. Copiados e gravados para rever sempre XDD

Belo tutorial, ajudou-me imenso ^^ agora já posso trabalhar melhor com as aguarelas ^^
e sal pra texturas? dessa n sabia O.O tenho 20 anos, desenho desde os oito e nunca ouvi nada sobre isso, nem os meus profes de artes ou o meu pai me contaram sobre isso. obrigadinha XD

:iconlonelyfullmoon:
LonelyFullMoon Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013  Student General Artist
Ahah sim é sal xD dá para usar outras coisas como folhas e assim. Há alguns tutoriais pelo DA sobre texturas feitas assim :3 Outra coisa interessante que não usei neste tutorial é aquilo a que chamam "máscara", não sei se sabes o que é mas é super fixe *0*

:iconsamsilver-chan92:
SamSilver-chan92 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
O.O tenho de esperimentar essa técnica, parece divertido XD é deitar o sal/folhas logo sobre a tinta enquanto molhada né? tenho de experimentar.
E sim, já ouvi falar, uma amiga pintora da minha mãe falou-me dessa "máscara". Existe um tipo de papel autocolante que recortas com a forma desejada e colas(n te preocupas que sai sem problemas do papel)sobre a figura que queres proteger, mais usualmente utilizado para proteger figuras enquanto se pintam os fundos e/ou as roupas. É tudo o que sei ^^, não sei se ajudou XD

:iconlonelyfullmoon:
LonelyFullMoon Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Student General Artist
Isso do papel autocolante gostava de saber o que era *.* costumam usar isso imenso em manga para fazer os fundos.
E sim, basta aplicar o sal enquanto a tinta está molhada :3 e tens que deixar secar mesmo bem senão não resulta.

SamSilver-chan92 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
ah! esse papel autocolante de que falas chama-se reticulas, tenho algumas folhas dessas que vieram numa colecção de "como fazer mangá" que apareceu o ano passado. Dão muito jeito XD

E ok, vou ver se consigo fazer isso, obrigada pelo conselho ^^

:iconlonelyfullmoon:
LonelyFullMoon Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Student General Artist
Aah essa colecção foi mesmo boa :3 e como trazia materiais de desenho ainda melhor x3 Tenho que ver se encontro dessas retículas à venda x3

:iconsamsilver-chan92:
SamSilver-chan92 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
tenho a colecção toda, foi cara, mas pelos materiais(faber-castle) e pelos conselhos, valeu a pena XD

mas olha que são caras as reticulas, vindas do japão ainda mais, mas tambem, se mandares vir de lá, tens mais escolhas: fundos com ruas, cidades, prédios, casas, jardins, etc, entre outros. Tens muita cena dessa, mas acho que tambem podes encontrar na Quadrimóvel, uma loja de arte com muita cena(só fui lá duas vezes e não mem lembrei de perguntar se tinham reticulas)

Pois foi x3 não fiz a colecção mas comprei alguns e valeu a pena :3
Tenho que ver se encontro alguma coisa, porque mandar vir do Japão é complicado x.x
