For my beloved friend
She asks for a tutorial but I don't know how to do it. There is a BIG difference between Tutorials and Shown Working Progresses but most people don't know it.
So they are making a "Tutorial" but it's not a tutorial at all, they just show what they did ÷___÷....
Well , okay like I said I'm not good in explain so I will update this thing step by step and write something about.
Ich hoffe das hilft dir auch

Like you can see it's just like a rough sketch, without any details, without background and with anatomical errors (you can see it when you're using the mirror tool). Sometimes I'm not happy with the sketches and I edit a whole thin in the end.
All things you see are made without a script, based from the fantasy in my head. A problem is that the whole doujinshi is like a movie or show in my head but not like a comic. So I never know which text will be there in the end and I don't know how many speechbubbles will be there and where.
But that's the last step so I won't think about it yet xD
Like I said THIS will be the next page. I will update it from time to time, so there won't be another extra upload for the page
Making the lines
Now I made the outlines. I used the Paint Tool SAI Pen-Tool , Size x5.0 (with the littlest possible brush on the bar) and stabilizer S-5.
There are always 3 layers. The first one is with the big fat black lines, done on a linework layer with the last option (the straight lines). This layer will be there until the end. All following layers will be made under this one. The second layer is with the lines of the face things like eyes, nose and mouth (because I'm not good at it and I have to transform it very often). The third layer is with the rest of the lines and will be combined with the face-layer when all is done. So I have 2 layers in the end, one with outlines and one with the fat lines.
Like you can see I changed N's face because I thought about the dialogue, about logic, actions and emotions and so on and decided to let him think instead of talking.
uhm there isn't much to say about it xD
I always make the white coloured things grey because so I can see if there are space between or not4.Step
Sorry guys, it's 6 AM here, I went to bed at 2.30 AM and I couldn't even sleep. I have holidays but I'll go to the hairdresser and cut off my last hair I have
Because of the little sleep the background looks weird
Okay that doesn't need a big explanation....I always try to make the background like on the former pages, it's important so that they fit together but sometimes it's a big fail.
There will be shadings on the ground later but that's just a little step. Since my last works I use the oil water brush in SAI for the trees. O_O I really didn't know that there is an amazing brush like that! It's so much easier to work with that thing than draw the shades of the trees by hand. But I guess I have to continue with the pointed-trees on the next pages because you know...Pokťstyle .___."
Like you can see it's always the same with the shadings. I used the pen tool with the stabilizer 11 and mostly the layers are set on "Multiply" because it's easier for lazy people to colour the whole thing with just one colour. Important that the colour fits to the colour of the background.
Effects and Text
Now I switch to Photoshop to make the effects. Firstly I have to (I don't know if it's normal) make a pure white layer under all other layers because there are always white pixel around the edges. Then I combine all layers (sometimes I use effects on the moon and the stars when I play with the fill options) to one layer. I use duplicate -> gaussian blur on 14 percent on the upper layer and make the density to 15-30 percent and combine them again. That creates that "dream" effect. After that I make more contrast, more colours and use the blend tool for little sparkle effects and make the eyes and skin more shiny. Finally I create speechbubbles and the text , sharpen the whole thing and voilŠ, it's finished
Ich hoffe das hat geholfen D: Also ichfine immernoch das erklšrt irgendwie NICHTS XD
