    Nardfrog's Digital monster tutorial

    NOTE: I did this tutorial on my laptop and the screen seems to be a little bright compaired to crt's, so if everything looks way oversaturated and to contrast-e, please be sure to tell me in a post so i can fix it. It looks great on MY LCD, but this isnt for me...

    Hey here is a quick 7 step method I tried out for a tutorial. THis was done is Photoshop CS, but all the tools i use go back to at least PS 5. The pose of the monster is pretty weird, but that doesnt matter because this one is about technique, not about poses. I planned on having strictly a black and white tut, but I couldnt resist putting color on it. So consider this a values tutorial with a color technique experiment at the end. Ill try to post a color tutorial soon. SO here ya go!! Hope it helps some of you.

    final product:

    Nice tutorial! Clear process, easy to follow. While like you said, the monster's pose is a little odd, you do it justes with your technique. Thanks!
