Sugimori Style Guide 2 by Xous54 Sugimori Style Guide 2 by Xous54
For a while now I've been meaning to write a new Guide for how I draw in Sugimori's style, but I never had the time. Recently I was able to find time to make the guide, so here it is! I hope it's helpful. I'm pretty bad at giving advice (and by extension, even worse at writing guides) so if this isn't helpful at all I apologize.

Like it says at the end, if you have any questions regarding the guide, feel free to ask.

Now, this seems like an excellent Sugimori-Style tutorial... but, what about Red/Green Sugimori style? That had a lot more white it in than anything else for the 'mon. Do you have a way of tutorialing that?

I managed to draw with this guide! :dummy: I mean, it doesn't look exactly like Suigmori but rest assure you, my Fakemon have been looking a lot better with the pre-sketch strategy! :D I even used it on another piece of work and so far, it's one of my most successful (In my opinion)! :dummy:

what opacity do u use for the shading? like how dark is it 
and when u make the gap in the shading, the blending, do u use the eraser tool? and set it to a density 
i use paint tool sai so this was hard to follow

Just wondering is the program you use free or does it cost money to download?. I tried doing this on photoshop elements 10 but it doesn't seem to work on there.

Thanks :D
