Hello, lovely artists of Wolfhome!

I was wondering if anybody could give me a rundown of cell shading? What is it? How do you do it?

All I know is, it looks fabulous.

I'm also looking for any rundowns on shading in general with Photoshop! I'm very new to Photoshop, so I'm pretty lost as far as detailed, quality coloring and shading.

All I can really do at the moment is sketch and outline. I want to step it up!

Thanks all!

(Admins, if this is in the wrong spot, please move. This seemed to be the most likely place to ask art-related questions.)

Cell-shading is easy once you've done it a few times! What my shading is is a mix of cell-shading and soft shading. I'm actually going to make a shading tutorial soon so I'll be posting that when it's done. (:
I haven't ever used a tut for cell shading, but here's one that looks pretty good:

So cell shading is basically just using solid lines for the shading rather than a soft brush?

Sorry for the ancient bump, but I need help shading too. Does anyone have any tips or more tutorials? Better yet, could someone show me?

Did you read my post? There are tutorials there.
Plus you can google "How to cell shade" or "cell shading tutorial".

Yeah I read it. I was asking if there were any more tutorials out there. And if someone could show me themselves. I guess next time I'll just ask google instead.
