Princess Mononoke Process by yuumei Princess Mononoke Process by yuumei
Here's a quick process step by step for the Princess Mononoke fanart

If you are still learning Photoshop/SAI or any digital programs that involves layers, you might not understand this but I hope it makes sense to at least some people ^^;

On a side note, I will be at Fanime this year, I hope to see you there! :D

I've seen a small paragraph in the bottom right corner about you, and I was just searching Princess Mononoke and saw how awesome this is, and I looked at the artist and it was you xD I really like this piece :dummy:

It sooo cool.

Btw, thanks for uploading this pic. It helped me in rendering especially in SAI. Though I'm still a beginner.

Ahhh, layers. How I have yet to master you.

This was very helpful. I'm terrible at backgrounds. It makes a lot of sense to do the forground and midground on a separate layer and worry about those first. I would still like to know how to do that nice glow and lighting effect though.

wow this is a perfect sort of tutorial. I already know how to use Photoshop and draw anatomy but I really love seeing the process and how you did this. It really helped a lot, and the way you described separating the layers is amazingly helpful. Thank you so much for this I really hope you do more!

As a huge fan of both Art and Princess Mononoke, this is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen on this website. I am huge fan of how you use light in your art. You have some serious talent.

between the last 2 steps:

make separate layer set to overlay, and paint over the picture with the same color as your light source.

Totally helpful! I've always thought I have to paint everything in order to get that glowish surreal effect. I guess I need to play around with my layers more ;) Thank you!

Can I just say that I love the pic of the first background you paint? It's so atmospherey and ethereal and.. I don't know.. it's just so freaking cool. The finished work is amazing, but the creepiness of the unfinished forest - I just adore it. Well done. :)
