Looks like now Bleux is on the other end of serving paws.

This is another full detail Toony style YCH commission, this time for Arco_Wolf on Twitter. I'll show you my drawing process for this.

      • 1st Character Folder
        • Quaternary Color layer

        • Primary Color layer
    • Base Color layer
  • Background Folder
    • Shadows layer
    • Pattern layer
  • Extra Sketch layer
  • Fine Sketch layer
  • Rough Sketch layer
  • Canvas Background layer (Neutral color like grey.)

  • Canvas Prep/Rough Sketch

    Layers Used:
    Canvas Background layer
    Rough Sketch layer

    With a neutral color background already set up and in place, I sketch in rough sketches of the characters and their poses.


  • Fine Sketch

    Layers Used:
    Fine Sketch layer

    Then I sketch over the roughs with a finer and more detailed sketch.


Here I highlight the character to auction off for the YCH.


  • Lineart

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Lineart layer

    After the winner was determined, I lineart the character in. (I didn't have to really change the placeholder character much since the winner happened to fit the species placeholder. So there was only a few new sketches I had to make before the linearts.)


  • Base Color

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Base Color layer

    Select all areas outside the characters' parameters using the contiguous "wizard" selection tool, invert the selection, and then fill the area with a neutral color. (Slightly different color than the canvas backgorund.)


  • Primary Color

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Color Folder -> Primary Color layer

    Then draw in the characters' primary colors, making sure not to overlap colors in areas that doesn't belong.


Then mask the color folders down.


  • Detail Color

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Color Folder -> 1st Character Folder -> (Folder's color layers)
    Foreground Folder -> Color Folder -> 2nd Character Folder -> (Folder's color layers)

    Then add in the other colors of the characters in their respective folders.


  • Shadows

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Shadows layer (Opacity: 50%)

    I add in their shadows.


  • Highlights

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Highlights layer (Opacity: 50%)

    Then I add in their highlights.


  • Backlights

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Backlights layer (Layer Blending Mode: Soft Light)

    Then I add in their backlights.


  • Background/Final Check/Final Result

    Layers Used:
    Canvas Background layer
    Background Shadows layer
    (Various layers)

    Then I whiten the canvas background and add in a simple color pattern for the background.


Finally, I just check over the drawing for any errors or missing details.


Then the drawing is completed!

Enjoy the drawing!
