All right, I've finally gotten around to using my Wacom tablet and now that I've figured it out, I love it. I took the lines from my existing Guy (from Tales of the Abyss) vector and dumped them into Photoshop where I began airbrushing. It's still a work in progress obviously, but I'm excited and wanted to show it off my first attempt at airbrushing.

Make your lineart the darker colour of the NEAREST colour, if you understand, since hard black lineart is best suited for cel-shaded art... not partically for soft coloured art.

Yeah, I don't like the black lines either but this is my first airbrushing and I didn't want to take too much on. So I just grabbed the lines I already had made so I could just try out airbrushing.

Nice work jumpman17, what wacom tablet do you use?

I prefer the vector because I do alot of vector work aswell.

On a side note, one of the labs we have here has about 30 of these bad boys: http://www.wacom.com/cintiq/21UX.cfm

my wacom changed my life. best money i ever spent (aside from my DS). Glad to see your digging it as well. Are you gonna post more things soon?


I plan to do more after I finish this one, but my works usually process slowly unless it's homework that has a deadline.

I have a little more of it done, but it's at a stand still right now because I need to fix my PC (been screwy all week) and I can't do that until this weekend.

Just some suggestions:

- You can just lock the transparency of the lineart layer to change the black line to other colour.
- I think the shade should be a bit darker. ^^ It is kinda hard to tell where the shadow is for the skin.
- The hair shine looks kinda... funny. Airbrushing and cell-shading is quite different... ^^; I think for airbrushing, it looks better if you draw strands of hair instead of in blocks.

That's all.
