    N8 Tutorial

    First, I sketch it out in pencil in my sketchbook. Pretty simple. A real quick foundation...



    Then, I lay an ink wash over the whole thing...



    After that dries up, I go in with prisma color markers and knock out some basic colors for the character...



    Then come's the inking. I use a varity of width's when inking. Also, on this piece I decided to change the blue of her vest to a brighter blue. Other small alterations as I see fit...



    Now, is where the piece comes together. Here I go in and finish it off with pencil, color pencil, and guache. Done! There you have it. Hope that breaks some of the mystery for all who have asked me to do this tutorial.

    Great Style of yours! Thanks a lot for this tutorial! Are the materials the same that Coro use for his paintings?

    Thanks one more time and keep posting.

    ooh! ooh! I get to be the first one to complain, heh heh:

    after seeing coro do his stuff in Austin a couple times I could have guessed at the first three steps (but I still like seeing them). I more interested in the quick "finish with pencil, color pencil and gouche" 1-2-3 punch; can you break that into 2 or 3 steps? That seems to be the stages where you build the most color and value.

    nah, its still cool stuff, I'm just curious about the end.

    thanks!

    hahahah bitch! tryin to cheap the last steps and shit! naw, good job baby. i am particularly fond of your use of the marker to scribble the dirt and grime shapes in. gives it that randomness thats so hard to attain. i think thats the best gem of knoweledge presented. look closely kiddies, thats a piece of the puzzle there.

    bwkeough: you arent missing much in the additional steps you are requesting. it usually goes something like this: nate than hands coro his sketchbook, coro climbs up on nates lap and finishes it for him, while nate uses his nimble fingers to...well, i wont get into that...its getting hot in here-c36

    Thanks for sharing these steps. Feels related to el coro's method. THe finished stage feels a bit too dark and the nice texture you laid into shoulder pads with markers seem lost... maybe its just this monitor...

    thanks again!
