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).
