Sylveon Walkthrough by JAYWlNG Sylveon Walkthrough by JAYWlNG
Note: I suck at explaining things.
Whoopdedoo, let's get on with this!

1 || Walkthrough for you guys! To start off, I make a sketch. (This is unusually clean for me, ahahaha.)

2 || I colored the sketch and set the layer to multiply. After that, I color in the background and add some shading, hand picking colors. Don’t get too precise!

3 || Background with circles, because why not. I also used a bit of multiply to add up some contrast.

4 || With a hard brush, I start refining it. This is basically the time for you to get more detailed with everything.

5 || More refining! I also kind of outlined it with the background color, it adds more contrast and makes it easier to separate the different body parts.

6 || Last step! I added some touch up (little dots of shine and these... stars near her face), and we’re done!

so all u use is normal soft brush and normal hard brush
no settings whatsoever
no opacity jitter, transfer, smoothing, airbrush, texture, etc.

I used the normal hard brush with transfer on so opacity is controlled by pressure on the shading part, and used the standard hard brush for the rest of the image.

opacity is annoying tho because you have to do it in one stroke :<

since when did you have to do it in one stroke? Keep it rough, you'll be cleaning it up later.
Anyway, that wasn't any real problem with me, since I didn't put the shading on multiply (the first layer, anyway).

that's fine too
use the eyedropper and select colors constantly
it'll help you be able to smooth out everything
(I'm terrible at explaining things, but I do this for my regular shading style too!!)
