Link with Headphones: Step by step by EternaLegend Link with Headphones: Step by step by EternaLegend
Finished image:



Here is the step-by-step that I promised to upload. :) I wouldn't say that it's a tutorial, but more or less of an insight as to how I drew the artwork from scratch to end.
I forgot to mention that in step 5, I merged the colour/overlay layers with the black and white layer of Link for easier clean up and detailing. The background layer doesn't get merged with Link until the very end.

Photoshop CS5 and Corel Painter 11 with a Wacom bamboo tablet was used to create this artwork.

Feel free to ask me any questions below on this step-by-step guide!

I don't know what I find more amazing; the art or the fact that you wrote the tutorial in Comic Sans o_o 

Thank you so much for the tutorial~!

I don't know what the deal is with the usage of Comic Sans as a font. :P I didn't even realise what font I was using until it was already too late.

But thanks!

I really love the feel in the first picture- can I ask how long you usually spend on quick sketches like this? And what kind of brushes you use for it? I use sai, so that probably won't help me much, but.. Oh, and did you have to practice simply sketching alone to be able to get that good at getting the general feel of the picture?

I spend no longer than an hour on the first sketches. And I use Photoshop's default chalk brushes on the sketch phase.

And I would say so yes. You'll get better at sketching if you practice it everyday. :)
