Thank you very much for putting up this tutorial. I've just always loved the cell shaded appearance whenever i see it.

Actually now that i think about it: Is cell shading one of those art styles that takes much longer then others to complete a picture, because you have to be very careful with what you're doing?

Glad you like it ^^

As for the style, well I guess it depends on the artist... personally when I was first figuring out how things worked it took a lot longer. Now that i'm more used to the technique, it's actually two to three times faster than soft shading because I don't have to worry about blending or anything and the colours are easier to change.

So I guess it depends how used to the technique you are? You don't have to be too careful about placement (and like any technique you'll get faster at it the more you use it).

Awesome tutorial. I need help with the skin shading, because it looks something like this img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20… Now I don't know if it's a style preference, or what. But I need to make the skin look.... well good.

A handy little tutorial. A refresher on the concept, but the color dodge and linear burn shadings are something I'll have to try out. Thanks!

SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT CEL SHADING IS. Some people says it's to make 3d objects look like 2d objects, I thought it was 3-D Shading (the shading of mass (like a sphere with a light bulb above it)). PLEASE SOMEBODY EXPLAIN IT TO ME.

cel shading is basically shading with hard lines (no blending involved), but some people change it to blend!!!!!!!!

I was wondering how you shade the skin/hair/clothes. Do you need to use tablet for this?

The tutorials in the description show how she shades skin/hair/clothes.
You do not need a tablet, it just helps to have something that has pressure sensitivity to it

hey sorry for the super slow reply >_<;;

I do use a tablet, but it is possible to colour with a mouse (for the first few years that I did digital artwork I used a mouse). You just have to fiddle with brush settings and have a super strong wrist. There are some tutorials here on DA you can find for mouse colouring and lining :)

i really am into Borderlands 2, and the Cel Shading style used there. Going from very precise, design based work, to more art based work has been so very difficult, but this Tutorial has made things soo much easier, and something that i can refer to and work off! Thank You so very much.
