Do you have video tutorials? I'm desperately in need of some mentoring on this particular method.
Malganis-Lefay Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014   Digital Artist
how many layer has this picture?
and is it possible to draw something like this without a graphic tablet?
BL00D-H0UND Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
To answer your tablet question: I don't think you can do these kind of pictures with something like a mouse ( If that's what you mean by non-tablet sources ) because tablets have pen pressure sensitivity ( which basically gives you more fluent and realistic-looking brush strokes ). Although I guess it could be possible if you install some kind of driver that allows your mouse to have pressure sensitivity. I'm not a professional, but I hope it helped.

What sorcery is this?  When I attempt to create even simple things I inevitably end up with something that resembles a very colorful hairball.  Hopefully your tutorials will help me transform my work.

That's really cool, I sadly don't have the patience to sit and draw, I'm too much of a I want to be active but end up just sitting in front of my computer and reading or playing games all day kinda person. I was wondering about the finished product from this tutorial and whether or not you would be posting it on here?

khatypaperdoll Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2014
From simple doodling to realistics..Damn,I wish I had your talent~~
Nick5200 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2014
It's not about talent, more about patience and discipline.
I would probably reach till middle row 2nd pic, and there I would stop.

Would lose inspiration or would just be unable to go further.
RevanEdge Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Yeah I had a teacher who talked about how things like this take patience. I'm with you I'd be the same way xD.
failingwings Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
