A quick tutorial on how I paint (mostly angular) shaped objects in a BG.
This is actually a great tutorial for general colours backgrounds or not! It really breaks down how to simplify rendering light.
a new technique I found while working on my latest comic page. Thought I’d share the process!
I’m not sure if this is a really obvious tip, but I can’t believe I didn’t think of doing this earlier.
All those concrete walls I painted in perspective ;-; They could have been painted in 2d! Hope this is helpful to someone. I’m pretty excited to use this in future environment paintings
I’ve been doing this for years but I always seem to forget that I can do it when it really counts hahah. Good reminder!

This is a fun little tutorial for a fun little effect.
I made a walkthrough of my process for drawing faceted stones! Judging by the timestamps from the screenshots I took, drawing this one stone took an hour and three minutes, although I know I went and checked tumblr a couple times while I was working, so let’s just call it an hour.
Now MISCELLANEOUS NOTES
- This walkthrough assumes you already know how to use layer masks, clone stamp, and lasso tool. There’s also one part where I didn’t label it, but I inverted the selection so I could keep my lines consistent. It’s in the third image.
- Unfortunately I can’t really help with colour choice and the actual colouring of the pinwheel shape that makes of the back facets, but you can kind of see that I tended to colour with lines that cut across the facets and and kept the outer parts of the facets darker. It would probably be best to find a reference to work from!
- This particular cut of stone is called the ‘brilliant’ cut.
- There’s actually a lot of internal reflection business that goes on in a stone, but I elected to ingore all of it since at a distance you can’t really tell anyway.
now GO FORTH AND DAZZLE YOUR FRIENDS WITH YOUR SPARKLE
I’m gonna dO THIS TODAY.
For anyone with jewel frustrations
This is a Gem!!
That pun is the real crowning jewel of this post.
lets play everyones favorite game of
WHAT LAYER IS THAT ON
On Photoshop, hit the move tool (V) and hold Ctrl while clicking on the mark and it will automatically take you to that layer /o/ Alternatively, you can check off the auto-select option!
It’s similar on Paint Tool SAI as well!
On SAI, if you hold the CTRL key and hover over the mark, a small bubble pops up and tells you which Layer it is on. If you hold CTRL and click on it, it will automatically take you to that layer! Cheers~
Adding some pictures from a different post to show what to expect:
Paint tool Sai.

This is just fun to watch.
