Realistic gemstone tutorial - Paint Tool SAI by longestdistance Realistic gemstone tutorial - Paint Tool SAI by longestdistance
Warning: Big file.

Pretty shiny sparkly jewels! \o/ I love anything shiny.

I'd like to make some more tutorials because they're fun to do. I want to do an eye tutorial, a hair tutorial, and a skin tutorial. :D Some people asked me to do some of those things too.

So here's something I've been learning how to do: Gemstones! I used to make them look like anime eyes but they don't really look like gems. Or they do but they're kawaii gems.

The method I've learned how to do isn't the best, but I'll keep trying. I have lots of improvement but I'm pretty happy with the way they come out. It's a lot of trial and error.

Edit: HOLY CRAP. Daily deviation?! That's like.... beyond the impossible. I don't even know what to say. Thank you so much everyone! And thank you ^Elandria! Now excuse me while I try to wrap my mind around this. NO SERIOUSLY HOW IS THIS HAPPENING

O_______________O

There's an overwhelming amount of comments and it would be redundant to say "thank you" 100 times and it would lose its meaning.... so have a giant thank you!
