Using the GIMP : Soft-Shading by saphiremomo Using the GIMP : Soft-Shading by saphiremomo
I'm so very sorry to those with slow connections - this file is huge, and I didn't feel like breaking it up into to separate files because then I would probably never get finished with the second part, just like with the lineart tutorial. I swear, I will get that done, someday!

Anyway, this is mainly a tutorial for those who are beginners to soft-shading. I show two of my different styles of soft-shading in this tutorial, and I hope I wrote it helpfully.

If you have any questions or concerns, please tell me! I always want to be as helpful as possible.

I reference several of my other tutorials in this tutorial, so here are some links to them.

Looks promising. Are you going to make an "advanced" guide to get a little more in-depth?
