Xylax's Ala style art tutorial! in Admin Updates

Hello! I am your Xylax, and I'd love to present how I try to match Ala's overal art style. I think it would help you guys to understand how to fit your own style a bit more into dog's scenes and make it less differently drawn, if you'd like that!

LINK TO THE TUTORIAL

ANOTHER LINK NOT ON IMAGESHACK

beware, though! pretty huge jpg!

Don't be afraid to ask questions, if I missed something. I will be sure to make more tutorials in the future :D

Also, answer in advance: I'm using very old Photoshop 8.0, called CS 1. To make sure everyone can access all functions. They can be named differently, but they're in same places.

here's the brush image.

hey Nox! it's pretty rad, I'd say the colours are still too deep to fit perfectly, you could de-contrast them a bit. The head and outline are just awesome, though!

I don't have Photoshop but it didn't stop me from using your tutorial for help. :) Though I will admit I didn't read everything, I have a horrible attention span sometimes and I kind of wandered off on it. >.>' I made a deer though. Thanks for the awesome tutorial. ^.^

*barges in and isn't Xy*

Like, I just want to draw a wolf sometimes, and I don't really have a picture to look at for the angle/pose I want my image in...

I always end up making it look deformed in some way because I can't get the proportions right..."


Look at anatomy pictures! :) and photos wooowooo!!!
Anatomy pictures as in skeletons, muscle diagrams, etc of the animal you want to draw, to see how things work.. and photos to see how the animal looks on the outside.
Also, as a tip, try using the length of the skull as a guideline for measurements of the body.

I love this :)

I need to start upping my game because my art is starting to level out, and I'm beginning to think about a tablet, but I REALLY don't want to use one...

I have a question though, Xy. How do you start your sketches for an image without a "inspiration" picture? Like, I just want to draw a wolf sometimes, and I don't really have a picture to look at for the angle/pose I want my image in...

I always end up making it look deformed in some way because I can't get the proportions right...
