Shana~! :D - MOUSE AGAIN ._." by Kohaku no Hime




Step 1

First Step!

Draw the shape of the face, neck and the hair. take your time in putting the details. ;3

Info from me:
I used transparency - 30 for the lines. While using the Fill Tool, the color of the line is black. ( I like using black DX<" )


Step 2

Second Step!

Finish drawing the hair, and put the collar, and shoulders. And also, don't forget the ear! its best if you use "Zoom" if you want to draw the ears.



Step 3

Third Step!

Now's the time to draw the face!
Click "Zoom" while still using Fill with 30 transparency.

It's alright to make mistakes when drawing the eyes! If you aren't content with drawing an eye, like me, just use guide lines ;3

And the mouth, just a simple curved line that I used XD Oh and if your going to make an eyes don't forget to put the eye brows.


Step 4

Fourth Step!

Color time! (ME: This isn't my specialty. .__. )

Still using fill tool, I colored the hair with the transparency of 82, I made a lot of mistake since its hard to color while using a mouse .__.

After coloring the hair, color the eyes next, now use "Zoom" and put transparency to 45, and gently color the eyes shape.

After finishing the coloring the eyes with black color, put any color that you desire below the eyes. Finished with it already?! Now put you fill tools color to white and gently make a big/small circle near the side or inside of the eyes.

AND DONE! Your finish coloring the hair and the eyes. :D

*NOTE: I putted a line so that I know where I'll put the color ^.^;*


Step 5

Fifth Step! (Final Step)

It doesn't look the same as the fourth one, ne? Because I messed up with pressing the load quick save ^^; Anyways back to Fifth Step!

Now, turn your tool back into Fill, and gently choose your "wanted skin color" :D Put transparency into 35 ( That's what I use :P ) and gently fill in the face of your drawing with the desired skin color.

After that choose a darker color for the skin as the shading. And put it near sides of the bangs of your drawings face, and also, put shadings below the nose and the "line or mouth" :D for shading.

And if your not good with background as me, simply put any color you like or write something you wish to say and now your done!

I forgot the hair shadings ^^;

You can either use Fill or Airbrush Tool to put the shadings of the hair. :3 Put it at you desired Transparency no. and do it!

And if you want you chars. hair to look shiny either yous Fill or Airbrush and use color white with in a low transparency.

AND DONE! I hope I helped you. ^^;
