First off I would like to thank you for all the effort and time you have put into this blog.

I have been following it for a good month or two now and it has been ever so helpful. I had only just started drawing people and this site is now like my drawing bible!

Not sure if the tutorial still exists, but the thumbnail called
witch 02
(6 down,8 across) links to this image instead of the picture in the link. Does that tutorial still exist?

Regardless, thanks again for your tremendous efforts!

May I please to know what brush tips you used on this art?

Anonymous> Thanks buddy! Sorry, I haven't seen your comment here until now. I think I know which one you talking about. The witch with blue hair and big evil eye headset? It is now fix...and it will route you to the direct location. My bad.

soulmania> I mostly use default round hard edge and soft edge in PS. Then the rest here and there...some custom brushes. But really, is it those fancy brushes thank make the picture? Drawing, values, and color is way more important than the brushes...the foundation is everything. Not necessary the tools. Anyway thanks for stopping by, and subscribe to the blog...keep watching and listening, you will know what I am talking about.

I love your work!

I'm not sure what happens after you finish with the outline.

I mean the shadows,

Do you make a new layer for the outline?

or you change opacity for it instead?

:) please help

MS> Whao! slow down brother. :) Too many questions. Tips: Do not think in terms of lines when painting. Also, think in term of three things 1) Shapes 2) Values/Colors 3) Edges (Soft/Hard)
If you don't know these terms, I recommended watch all the videos on the site slowly one by one you will pick it up real quick. Thanks for posting. Peace!

Believe me, i've watched all of your videos, and i got really inspired.

I bought my graphic tablet about a few weeks ago and i've been experimenting, checking youtube for more tutorials.

I found yours to be most helpful.

But what confused me is, after your sketch you started on the shadows. From what i was taught i should create a new layer and set the sketch as an outline.

From what i can can tell, you used the same layer and changed opacity of the brush to make the shadows.. same for the actual painting.

then again i'm an amateur when it comes to digital painting =/

i need heavy tips :D

If you want to result as shown here. Create another layer on top of the outlines, then paint over. Forget lines, think shapes, values, and edge.
I use low opacity (30-50)first to find values and move shapes/shadow around.
After I get what seems to be underpainting (close to corrected values) then I use only (70-100) and be precise of where you put your paint and strokes *1005 help keep your color clean and not muddy. At this point, I don't need any layers just paint right on it, except for back up.
