and i have some things i plan on covering  pretty clearly defined.

brushes, light modes, filters  and some painting stuff like values contrasts basic stuff through some examples+some tips and tricks

however it struck me... might as well ask what you would like to see covered. as it hit me that i might be taking some technical sides to my process too much for granted and miss opportunities to make things clearer

Any update on this?
Shin-DFP Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2013
wow really late on this i am. 

what i would like to see really is more thought process and things to consider that you would have liked to have considered or been more aware of when you where first starting out. 

if it wouldn't be a problem. 

Honestly there are tutorials for this stuff every where. What i think a lot of people actually need is more of a why approach as opposed to a how. 

happy halloween

I was just wondering, why is it i can't seem to find Ravine Vol 2 anywhere? You did say that it was going to be released in August right?
sgtflyer Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
well, it's listed with a release date for the 23 october on image comics - so we will have to wait until then :)

Aside from showing the process of your work, the basic stuff like shape and form. There are a few videos of that on Youtube already, but with each one you pick up something new.

I'm a long-time fan of your channels, but I've never commented on your work or notes before.  I love your "no excuses" approach to putting in the time, practicing relentlessly, and developing your own style.  I have some of your rants about practicing saved on my computer so I can read them when I'm feeling lazy XD

The process I'd love you see you cover in a video is the Z-Brush-to-Photoshop workflow you use for dragons in Ravine.  I know you already have some sculpting time-lapses, but I'd love to see the process of compositing your 3D renders into 2D digital paintings!

Loved the way it went with the mermaid tutorial! Couldn't ask for more!
Nickatnite Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
Assume that we Know how to use Photoshop and Draw, you don't need to waste time explaining the basics. There are plenty of videos around for that. Please do things that are specific to you as an artist. I love the Way you render your backgrounds and different materials, you achieve a beautiful photographic quality with your pallets. I would like more little tips and tricks and most importantly creative decisions Why to you choose certain pallets or compositions. what is your thinking process when laying out a page and trying to find an overall graphic composition to the panels. why do you choose the camera angles that you do?  For example in your temptress video I gleaned a few interesting techniques, Like putting the layer style on to Stroke and a white colour overlay and painting in the sillhouette of the staff. I used that technique for word balloons, but painting with it is a revelation, now I use it all the time. 

I love to watch Videos like this because watching people paint is so much fun, but ultimately it is the little things, the way an artist solves problems, that I take away the most from, and add to my bag of tricks. So ill watch anything you post, especially if you are painting something.

Facial expressions!  You do so much with the shape of the eyes, movement of the lips etc to convey emotion in a way that sets you apart from most comic artists.  Even if it's not a tutorial, I would enjoy a blog post with some methods for practicing that which you have found useful - photo refs, caricatures, using your own face in a mirror etc...

I would just like to see you paint some thing for starters. You have a very interesting style and I would like to see the process. Maybe for a later video I would love to see how you do you'r reptilian and dragon characters. They are so immensly well done.

They say every adventure start with a single step. I've seen everyone of your videos but watching it is almost like watching someone do math, then write the answer down without showing you how they struggled to learn it. I wanna know where you came from to know where you're going next. I want to see a video on, How you did things before you became Present Day Nebezial. Day 1, Photoshop, Pre Nebezial. when you were doing everything the hard way. i wanna watch a video on your process from young grasshopper to Big Nebezial. Please Enlighten us with your knowledge...please make this video...
LeRevenant Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you for your tutorials!  I would like to know how you plan your illustrations... i mean: do you have already a definite idea of the final work when you start? I watched your videos, and for my unskilled eyes it's like to see something beautiful that suddenly appears from the white canvas (and i don't know how). But anything is good!

Thank you! I'm looking forward to it. I personally can never remember how to make my own brushes (technical stuff), and this saddens me. XD
kitiaramajere Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
Considering how little I know, anything is good! I really need to take classes...
TheSangson Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Professional General Artist
Actually whatīs mentioned up there would be exactly the stuff I still miss in tutorials.Thereīs a lot of advanced stuff like FZD for example,but I could use a good lot of just basics knowledge, thatīs what Iīm  insecure about.
Especially in perspective it often seems like I know all I need to know or where to find it,but when I think of drawing a fighter jet Iīm f*cked.The nose of a fighter jet simply isnīt just a box.
What really would really help me personally was a number of good exercise to achieve the feeling for such kinds of things when just knowing the theory in and out and watching pros just doing it isnīt helpful anymore.
DanOliveira Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
I agree, I think that some exercises can help a lot!
LisaGorska Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
wow, brushes :) would love to see how to finally make my own - can't figure out how to make the brush axis to stay perpendicular to the drawn axis... or however this works, that's just how it seems to work to me.

people know you mostly as a character artist but i'm interested in your way of planning and painting the environments in your stories. some of the backgrounds in Ravine seem pretty complex.
21-Secrets Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well...for me i dont mind you doing what you usually do, but if you can just make it the same as you did in the allergies tutorial minus the allergies of course coz i thought that is when super helpful and with you explaining i got more information than i did in all for your other tutorials and the fact that i could see what you are doing in detail is a plus.

As a side note i dont fully agree with (optichouse) coz although he is right about us needing to observe and get creative i get that, but i think that what you are doing is fucking awesome thanks btw and coz that i believe helps us generate some of our one ideas as well as understand how clothes work like, light, wight,shading.\

So to sum it up keeping doing what you are doing + with you explaining the process is a big plus.
DerekRodenbeck Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013
I'd be open to whatever you are willing to put out there. Just interested in what you have to teach. 
optichouse Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Professional General Artist
Another vote work working with textures - clothing, armor, props & environments.

I also love the lush skin tones you produce.

Something that probably WOULDN'T make a good video tutorial - how much reference do you pull for women's clothing? I notice in Sunstone that the day to day variety of clothing your characters wear is as rich as you would see in any woman's closet. It is just a matter of being more observant of fashion when you're out in the world, but you take it to the level where you could just as easily be a fashion designer instead of a comic artist. Nothing ever feels like a "costume", it feels more like a incredibly varied extensions of the characters themselves.
Staminaboy Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'd love to see a vid on how you approach backgrounds.
Now having watched your previous tutorial vids I'm sure it won't be much more than:
"You plop some color over here... and do some more crap like this... and then you blur over here... and that's how I do my sh*tty backgrounds..." but in all honesty seeing how the madness unravels itself really does help! :)

Honestly, I could watch a vid of you just MST3K-ing a speed paint you'd done and still learn a lot.
EsBest Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Professional General Artist
I agree with ~ozzboyd, I would like to know:
1) how (in detail w/visual shown) how not only create/paint things like dragon scales and human hair
2)but how you create and/or choose your brushes to do them.
3) I also would like to see how you create your background/surrounding for the characters you create.

There are quiet a few video on how to paint or draw specifics like characters, hands, feet ect but there are not many on how to create environments, background and while some are done separately, how are they combined to create one cohesive piece? I could go on and on but I wont. I will start with those. Because I am aware that each one could easily be an entire video on their own and could not all be combined in merely one video.

Thank you so much for doing this and asking us what we would like to see for a tutorial subject. You and your wife are really great artist and wonderful people. :headbang:
nebezial Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013
some of that has already been covered in my videos :) but these willl be shorter and more to the point yet greater in number
EsBest Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Professional General Artist
Thanks for letting me know. I will go back and watch them again. There has probably been more video that I have not seen where it is covered. :dance: Will be great to watch...and re-watch too. I look forward to the new to videos to come. :love:

Something to help us improve backgrounds.
I don't know, all you said sounds good, is the only thing it comes to my mind.
Freelance4 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I deeply appreciate you taking the time to do this. 

1. Layers (how do you set up your file for speed painting)
2. Blending modes "Why Linear Light and not Hard light
       a. Modes best for certain types of light (Reflected, Refracted, Absorbed, Radiant)
             1. Hard metal
             2. Skin
             3. clothe
       b. Modes best for shadows (Normal with Opacity, Multiply, Darken)
       c. What should I keep in mind while layering various types of light? Object color, direct light, backlight then indirect light?

EX: Lets say "Hurricos" is about to eat my face.... and.... everything else attached. In my last moments when time slows down I see the wet tongue, gleaming teeth, dry scales and cracked leathery hide with a glossy eye peaking around the jaws with the rising sun behind.  The left side of the head might have some direct sunlight on the hide and eye and some teeth. The other side would have reflected sunlight from the rocks and water. The inside of the mouth however would have only indirect sunlight. And perhaps there is some armor somewhere with hard reflections. Regardless.  All zones have their highlights and shadows. I'd like to see how you problem solve the light environments of your characters. And I would like to know what you are considering so I can ask the same questions while I paint.

 I would watch it over and over and over. 
Shadaan Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My thought and hope is that you focus on facial expression, Light and composition. Mainly expressions though. That would be great.
cuquito101 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
i was recently watching your smaug video on youtube and it struck me how many layers ( or is it colors? forgive my lack of knowledge) you used. Getting ready to try my first DP out , if you could make or talk about how you come up with the colors or the amount of layers . Is it something that comes with practice or something thought about ahead of time ? or trade secret :P. wether you answer or not thanks for the video tutorials im goobling them up .
