Tutorial: Editing Drawings by Cataclysm-X Tutorial: Editing Drawings by Cataclysm-X
Yes, I made a new tutorial! This time it's about how scanners work and how I edit drawings in Photoshop.

I know I said I wouldn't make any more tutorials, but I got soooooooooo many questions about this, and it's something I won't be putting in my artbook anyway, so I've been working on this all day long.

And now I'm tired... :yawn:

Oh well, hope it's useful :)

Ah, so you DO use photoshop to make it even more realistic! I honestly thought it was the pure sketch... which is sad, because I darken my own drawings as well...

You are freaking AMAZING.

I added your Holmes and Watson picture, and started looking at the rest of your stuff.... AMAZINGAMAZINGAMAZING!!!

Would you critique my work?
