Roman's Full ACEO Tutorial by InsaneRoman Roman's Full ACEO Tutorial by InsaneRoman
Holy wow, that took a while to compile. The first version freaking went all.... corrupted on me. .__. ^^; Yeah, I did this all tonight. When I should have been working on commissions, I know, I know. B-but look how productive it is!!! :eager:

I hope this helps you guys in any way at all. :heart: Sorry I couldn't describe things in words better. Looking at the progression helps more, in my opinion, hence so many scans. :O_o:

Feel free to re-draw this all you want for practice, and you can re-post as long as you credit me (and maybe link back here so others can learn, too!). :D

Thank you! :heart: I've used a lot of different pens for them, but lately I've been favoring the Copic liners like this: [link]

Tip: Shop ebay.

FAIL. I only answered half. :iconnightfacepalmplz: I usually don't color over the lineart, just around it and inside of it. A lot of the time I'll go over it again after the coloring is done, too. :meow:

It depends on what I'm drawing, really. I usually use a light shade, a medium shade of the same family, and a darker color and/or black for more shading. For this, I used 2 different greys and black, but I don't know the title of the colors because apparently they don't have names. :XD:

A very good tutorial :clap:

I was wondering, when you do the base color, do you color in the direction of the fur or just do a very flat/even color?

Thank you! :D

The base color I put down is just a flat color, and I do over it again a bit harder/darker/more pressure to plan where the fur will go. It's a gradual process. :D

An ACEO is also known as an ATC, or Artist Training Cards. They're artwork done around the sizer of a Pokemon or playing card and artists collect and trade them to built their own collections. I just think they're fun to draw. :D
