This is huge!! Beware.

So I decided to make a little... shit. Like a step-by-step tutorial or whatever? I haven't done any in a long time, and I figured I have some new things to share :)

If anything is unclear in here, feel free to ask absolutely anything! :D And I hope it helps someone, or at the very least it'd explain a lot about why my pictures look the way they do..? :stupidme:

Here's my previous tutorial: [link] (It's pretty shitty, so... BEWARE!! D8)

I like your style of tutorials. Great job!

Thanks! :D
This is the newer style though that I'll probably be using from now on. The previous one was made in MSPaint only... =P

No problem! :) Wish I could make this kind of things a little more often :C

I read it all. :)
Wow you have that many colours!!! I have only 24 colours of my colourful pencils.

It might be my next gift to myself. :)

I got them for my 14th or 15th birthday, I didn't use them at all until recently, didn't know how to use watercolor pencils before :'D

It's very inspiring having pretty-looking pencils, I'd definitely support that idea! :la:

Where did you buy your water colours? I used to have those in Russia and I loved the as a kid, but I can't find those in Israel.

I have a lot of other colours I should start using too: Acrylic, oil and tempera. :)
I really have no idea how to use tempera.

But that kind of a pack in Israel might cost something like 350-400 nis or 100 USD or 80 Euro. So if I go abroad sometime I probably buy it there, on the way. :)

At the local art shop simply :) They're relatively cheap, but easily the best brand I've used.

Those three kinds of paints are very expensive to get, not to mention all the accessories needed for blending the paint or cleaning the brushes. I've tried them, but they weren't really working for my ideas, my pieces tend to be very, very detailed and not particularly big, so thick paints like oil or acrylics aren't working so well for that :( However, experimenting is always good! And nobody tells you you can't mix them with some other media sometime :)

Actually for acrylic all you need to blend with is water, and you can use a colour blending surface anything you like, all you need are the brushes, which can be easily washed as long as the acrylic is wet.

For oil, recently I heard you can use an olive oil for cleaning brushes, and you can use any wooden surface for blending colours, also old clothes and table clothes.

The key is the brushes, if you use the right brushes you can draw small detail.
When I graduated school, one of my finals was art, and my whole final project was made with oil (5 paintings). I managed to draw with small detail, all you need are soft classical brushes. Mine were not even expensive (I really did not have money for something expensive).
I loved drawing with oil. :)

Yep, then there are matte media you can use if you don't want the colors to be shiny, but I've noticed that it looks nice enough if you make some washes with the paints mixed with water in places and you have a nice contrast of thick, shiny color and matte, transparent color.

For oil paints you traditionally use linseed oil (If that's the right name in English) to thin the paint and turpentine to clean the brushes. The paints themselves are expensive though, especially since you generally will end up buying a bunch of different colors.

I painted some oil stuff in my school but it took ages for it to dry and details like tiny, tiny eyes on the three people on one of the painting (Their faces were about 1"x2.5") turned out a little blurry, even if I tried being careful and using the smallest brush I had :C I do admit though that I haven't had much practice with oil except for those two paintings I did in art school.
