March 19th Update!

Page 434 is up! (And as always, you're invited to join me on Patreon and see the next page early!)

In other news, I just made my very first tutorial! A lovely patron asked me how I take a page from the flat color stage to the finished state, so I did my best to explain how I approach the entire process:

Overall Lighting and Color Scheme
Cel Shading
Highlighting
Sometimes a Gradient Map for Extra Fanciness
Ambient Glow and Atmosphere
Checking/Adjusting Contrast and Clarity

I also included a layered PSD file that you can download, so that you can see exactly what I'm talking about at each step. The tutorial is available to everyone who pledges $5 or more on Patreon. Feel free to check it out if you're interested! I hope it's helpful. ♥

The button says it all. Almost. (I guess there wasn't room to mention "awesome characters" and "totally sweet artwork.")
