It’s not one of my better pictures, but I made this tutorial along with it back then…In the end I wasn’t very happy with the picture itself (I tweaked it after the last part of tutorial), so I didn’t even want to post this tutorial but…

Still, I hope these are of any help to anyone learning to use Photoshop. I made this because I feel like lot of artists could use some shortcuts to get to the results they want, and I remember learning to use polygonal lasso and clipping mask layers made my process lot faster. Lot of people also ask what brushes I use, though 90% of the time I use default Photoshop brushes with my own adjustments to them.

This process may also give a hint on how to improve compositions and designs, since if you first off hone the lineart too much, it may end up restricting your creative process a lot.
