Aww, thanks so much! I'm glad you found them useful and easy to understand. I was worried that they'd be a bit too complicated, but I wanted to sum things up fairly quickly.

Hopefully they will be able to help out a bit!

Wow, I never even THOUGHT of painting the earth that way! :wow: You're a genius, Myla! :love:

I'm definitely gonna use these tutorials in the future. cx It's great to see the secrets on how you create your lovely art. c:

This is really helpful! Not just for me, but for a lot of users as well. I hope to see more great tutorials from you. ^w^ :hug:

Awesome, I'm very glad to hear this will be of some use to you. c: I'm not a genius, I just kinda figure things out as I go. I feel like I'm tumbling around aimlessly sometimes, but if it works, I go with it! xD

I'll probably make more tutorials in the future that cover different types of scenes... It would also be nice to make some general digital painting tutorials that explain a bit of color theory and blending.

Thanks for the nice comment!

I guess that's how all artists find their way. cx They tumble around until they find something that satisfies them. :dummy:

Awesome! I would love to see those! Especially the color theory one. It sounds really interesting. :la: Also, if you don't mind, could I make a suggestion? c:

I don't know if you've covered this already, but I'd really like to see how you would paint fire scenes. :D Y'know, like lava or just fire in general. I might have to scope out your gallery a little more to see if you've already done something like that. cx

You're welcome! You totally deserve it. c;

Yup, that's what I'm thinking too. x3 I'm just clumsily getting by, but I'm managing somehow!

I love your suggestion. Actually, my space tutorial series was my first tutorial series ever, but it would be cool to make a flame one. This tutorial would likely cover magical wisps and auras too, since the technique is very similar. I'll definitely think about it!

I never thought of using textures or a spherize filter for planets. Don't know how well the process in this tutorial is reproducable in a program other than Photoshop, but I think already the basics will be useful either way. Maybe I should look into filters a little more. ;) 

Again, thanks for sharing. :)

Like I said, I cannot guarantee usefulness in programs other than Photoshop CS6.

It'll certainly be useful already in the sense that it gave me the idea to check out the filters. ;)

Are you using GIMP, by any chance? That is a very powerful tool, quite similar to Photoshop. I'm not familiar with its UI, though.

Yup, I'm using GIMP. It got quite a lot of filters and script options, I just never really use them in paintings. Maybe I should. :)

I find your comment offensive and irrelevant.

Well over half of my gallery was painted using Sai and a 50 dollar tablet. Better tools can be nicer, but they don't make a better artist. I've earned what I have now as gifts from family that wish me to pursue my career further. Please think before you post.

I'm very sorry, I didn't mean it to be offensive. You want a career in art, and you've worked hard for it.

Really, I didn't mean it. I looked at the website to buy photoshop and the prices blew me away. It's just that I come from a family that isn't so lavish. Right now, I'm using a ten year-old computer that still runs Windows XP. Any SAI I've used has been the free downloadable version. (Which I've lost) For me, I'm not getting a tablet until I'm an adult and making my own money.

Yet, you probably are an adult, thus you can have stuff like that.

Again, I'm truly sorry, I did not intend to offend you in any way. Your art actually is very nice. They have a very nice glow affect to them. (Especially your Sonic art.....:))

I also want to add that I'm not so usually quick to snap, but I spent countless hours on these tutorials. :c To get a response like that just clicked the wrong way with me.

I will apologize as well for being quick to jump to conclusions.

I'm glad we could work it out. I don't like to be at odds with someone for no good reason.

I'll learn not to be so quick to comment, as you're right, those tutorials must have taken forever. ^^;

Yeah, I don't necessarily prioritize in digital, though I do know what you mean by art supplies costing a lot. But that's why I like to do clay. One can buy a good amount of scultpey clay for not too much, and it lasts a long time. Then all I need is a single paintbrush with acrylic paint in primary colors, (I mix all my paints to make a variety of colors!) and voila! I have a wonderful figurine! :D

By the way, one of my favs of yours is 'Before the Fall' It's sooooooooooooo awesome! :D I believe I already faved it...what?!?!!? No I didn't! I'll do that now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you very much for your mature and well-thought response. With the nature of how things work through written word on the internet, we have to be very mindful and consider any way the receiver can possibly interpret things that are said. I did honestly take offense to what you said, as I was unable to understand what you meant exactly. Now that I understand your situation better, I can relate to you. Yes, I am a grown adult now and am able to earn these tools for myself. This is what I choose to do with my life... I don't have expensive game consoles anymore, just as an example. Instead, I focus on my craft and put money into making things better or easier so I can get work done more efficiently. I'm glad you can understand, and I'm glad that I can understand what you meant now.

So long as you are able to balance your priorities, you can get the things you really want or need down the road. If art is something you wish to pursue, then the tablet and software won't be difficult to afford. I dropped traditional stuff when I moved to digital, because I found that traditional supplies ended up costing much more by the end of the year. I will be using this very same equipment for many years to come, with no waste to the environment.

I'm also happy to hear that you enjoy my artwork. I put my heart into it, and my desire is to grow and improve along the way. c:

Awesome, I hope it will be helpful to you some day. :)

I'm doing good, thanks for asking. Pretty much the busiest I've ever been for the past couple of months. Packing my belongings and downsizing for a more comfortable move later this summer. I have greater opportunities out west, and just plain love the weather. Before the move, I've just signed myself into a demanding job, but it willl only last until July. I've got prepping to do, but the experience will be invaluable. I also have some owed artwork to get out of the way before taking on this paid job.

As you can probably tell, I've been keeping  myself quite busy! I will get through it and will have more time to post my recent work once the contract is up.

I understand the absence, it happens! No worries. Absolutely no pressure to comment, though I am glad to hear from you again and know that you're okay. :)

So sorry for the late reply //dies
It shall! It will be fun to try! :meow:

Ahhh, really? Hopefully you will enjoy your new place! :D Oh, that job should be ending soon! Good luck on the artwork! Knowing you, you will do an amazing job on it! :squee:

Yes, I can tell! I'm hope your doing well at this time once you get this.
Thank you so much Miss Selena! I appreciate that a lot! I will try to comment as soon as I can!
