Blade Tutorial by Aikurisu Blade Tutorial by Aikurisu
If you actually find this tutorial useful, please support it with at least a fav or let me know of anything you've created by following its steps. I just want to see if my time was worthwhile for it, because the fate of further tutorials, such as on fabric, armour, skin, hair, etc, hinges on this one's interest.

Anyhoo, to mark my 5th anniversary here at DA (... yay. XD) and instead of drawing my usual crap, I present you my first ever tutorial! Exciting, right?? lol, yeah… I jest, but seriously, at least it gives me an excuse to try out a font I retrieved from a very cool fan site of Bullfrog’s Syndicate series: [link]

Now if only I knew how to use flash…

lol, thanks for the tutorial! :D There is some great tricks there! :) I have photoshop in french so it's a little hard to follow, but I think I'll be able to find it out right. I'm just at my very start with photoshop, but if i do a weapon with the help of your tutorial, I'll let you know for sure! ;) Thanks for sharing your knowledge about photoshop and congrats for your fifth anniversary around! :D

Nice tut, specific but not 28 page long report explicit. And of course the nice little GUI is pretty neat as well.

Sometimes it feels like that, especially if it's a very simple process your trying to accomplish.

Sweet tute mate. Interesting to see how others do things. May have to play with that "soft light" thing at some point.
