What I can guarantee is that it works without a tablet as well, though it will make your life 10x easier (I use this technique with a mouse often too, so YES it does work.)

Author: I finally finished it! The file is around 7 megabytes, but I hope it’ll be worth the download! I kind of aimed it toward Beginners, but there’s a lot of more “complicated” stuff in there too.



Cleaning up lines tutorial

Author:  I know that sometimes sketches are Never So Clean as they are in this case… I’ll talk about digital inking sometime in the near future in another tutorial. But this is for those who sketch cleanly or who go back and clean up their pencil sketch by erasing and redrawing the lines.

Drawing Anime Hair: Bangs

Author: I also wanted to say I’m really sorry if I disappointed anyone with making a tutorial on just bangs. I had 150+ requests for a tutorial on hair and I originally planned on putting curly hair, spikes, buns, Braids (French braids), Bangs, Long hair, Short Hair, Pigtails, Ponytails, Ofuku (Geisha), and Odango in this tutorial. But as you can see I only got to bangs. XD So I must ask everyone, would you like me to continue making another hair tutorial or move on to something else?

Painting Anime Tutorial

Author: This tutorial outlines one process that works well for me. It is certainly not the only method, nor is it one that will always work (some are more mechanical/technical in their approach, while others may be much more open and loose). Most importantly, the process is not meant to be followed step by step; instead, it can simply be used as a guideline.
