This whole guide is really really awesome.

LINK

Here's something I did while pretty much following this post as much as I could. I chose a rodi as they're pretty simple.

Any input?

My initial thoughts are that that the pose is pretty uninteresting, maybe a bit stiff. Backlighting MIGHT be wonky as it's not something I've used before. Overall I'm actually pretty happy with it, though. It came out better than I as expecting.

this thread oh my gosh * v * AND ESPECIALLY THAT TUTORIAL HNNGH;; as a person who's looked up to res art since.. ever?? this is possibly even more valuable than gold?? kirara, you are a wonder ;__; thank you so much


-coughs- 


i. uh. alright. LINK

there's a few res-esque things i've scrapped up over time ;o; i suppose the things i'm most proud of are the fake creatu drawings, although with the tips and guidelines given on the tutorial, i'll surely give a try at some new ones as well! >v>


i'd love to apply for artist training, but as school pressures me rn, i'll have to see if there'll be a more chill times ahead after i graduate ;v;"

(ps. im pretty sure ive got more intricate pet edits somewhere, i'll add them onto the sta.sh folder if/when i find them.. unf)

@Horrificus: That is absolutely fantastic! Your lineart and proportions are wonderful and your shading is marvelous!
I think you got a little too detailed in some areas of shading, if you took that image and scaled it down to 200px you would notice a lot of those fine details disappear. My suggestion would be to take those tiny fur clumps and group them into larger ones (like you did on the inside of the ears and tail tip). You can combine a lot of those small details into some simplified larger ones.
You've got the idea of backlighting down, but the implementation could use a little rearranging. Remember that backlight should be facing opposite of your light source, and in the case of layering, should be placed on the highest overlapping part of the creatu. For example, I see a nice bright highlight around the fingers of it's outstretched hand. You've got the right idea, but the fingers are on top of the hand, so the backlighting should be placed around the fingers, not behind them on the hand. Backlighting does not go under other objects, it goes on top of them.
Well gosh that was a novel and a half for a few little nit-picky details! Honestly your image is wonderful, and far better even than my first attempts at shading in Res style.

@TARDIS: Friggin Omena... I've been waiting for you to apply your dang butt to the artist team! You've already got the intricacies of VPS style drawing down, from simplified creatures, to smooth lineart, to square canvas posing, and I swear you get better at it every day.

Was gonna post the picture but I think it would stretch the forum :P It's a little sized down than the actual canvas size I'm using.
So here's a link. You saw this one in DA Kira but I've worked on it some more xD (it's still a WIP, since it's missing another layer of highlights and the backlighting, among some character design details)

p.s do let me know if it's allowed to post WIP or only finished pieces.

Hello, I was wondering if you must own Photoshop to apply to be an artist here on Rescreatu, or if other similar programs can be used. Thank you.

Hello, nope as long as your art is up to standard I believe you can use anything.
 It would be very beneficial if your art program could save things in PSD file type though.

Personally, I use Sai. 

(I am going to save up for photoshop |D)

Another fantastic art program I recommend whenever given the chance is Fire Alpaca! It's completely free and they update it to add new features constantly. I think it's the best program when it comes to lineart, specifically.

p.s. wow Pipsqueak I never saw your comment, I'm so sorry for never replying! You are totally welcome to post WIPs here.

Would you guys mind updating the image links in the main post now that PhotoBucket requires payment for links? 
I wish I had seen this before I applied.

Hey guys thanks for letting me know about this! I've been trying to update everything since Photobucket broke, but I overlooked this. 
Hopefully I've fixed all the images, let me know if I missed anything!

Thanks Olly!

And Kira, thank you thank you! It seems you got everything except for the reworked sketch images of the Liyure concept! :'] 

It's awesome to see more of the images now though, I really enjoyed this post. I don't really specialize in any sort of animal art but I really want to start getting into it and I really really want to put the shading tips to use.

I'm really sorry, those two images were actually drawn by another artist and were being hosted through a different account :'0 I searched through my files to see if I had a copy and it doesn't look like I do.
