Ezio A. TUTORIAL by Namecchan Ezio A. TUTORIAL by Namecchan
Hello guys| C:
Due to the amount of fav on my previous tutorial of “Ezio in Venice” ([link])(thanks a lot by the way! <: ) I thought I’d share the tutorial WIP thing that I don’t know how to call for my “Ezio A.” too! (sorry for the lame titles I give to my stuff…)

As usual, you can follow these steps with different softwares; I’m using Photoshop, but you can redo it with everything, really! C:

Brushes-wise, I’ve just used a chalk brush and a soft oil brush, tinkering with tip shape, textures and opacity (as usual).

So, here we go! C:

1) Horrible, horrible sketch. Seriously, I was tempted not to show it, but I’m keeping it in the tutorial for intellectual honesty…
2) With the chalk brush I started to block the colours in, UNDER the sketch layer. After the base colours, I marked where shadows and highlights would fall. Two smudge of colours were put to roughly show where Ezio’s hands would be.
3) Putting a bit more details, this time with the oil brush (I’ll use this one till the end from now on), to give everything a “smoother” look. I was still UNDER the sketch layer.
4) Moving now ABOVE the sketch. Detailing Ezio’s expression a bit more, and starting to block in his hair and the hood. I’ve used a lot the “negative spaces” here, to place the hood at the right distance from his face.
5) Detailing the rest of his face, “blending” the strokes on the forehead, and adding small details, such as the scars on his lips and forehead.
6) FLIPPING! C: (I probably did it before this step, it’s something I try to do as often as possible without falling into an OCD behaviour…xD). His face was a bit uneven, so I adjusted the shadows to shape it correctly.
7) Flipping again, starting the hands and the bracer. This was the most relaxing part for me, because I was satisfied with the face, and since I tried to carefully plan where to put hood, hands, bracers, and fur from the start, it was just a matter of detailing them… C:
8) More details on the right bracer.
9) Same process for the left one + rendering of the fur. I tried to use a fur costum brush for this part, but it wasn’t working out too well if you ask me, so I simply went over it with my beloved oil brush.

Then I’ve cropped it, signed it and well.. that’s all, really! C:

Hope you did enjoy this little tutorial thingy! <:

Love from Clo (and Ezio! C; )

I'm practically cutting myself out of jelousy.

Noes, don't be like that! D:
No need to be jealous, because my Ezio isn't perfect, and more so because if you check my gallery you'll see that I started off with pitiful drawings, like everyone else (except few lucky geniuses...)! XD

But you reached somewhere you know you can do it, for me the question is still looming. Until It's answered I'll feel somewhat jealous, but if it makes you feel better I won't be cutting myself for real (danm knife can't even cut butter).
And genuises are mostly people with the "right" thinking for something and lucky enough to have found it early. Let's not forget that Einstein was a genius in math but sucked at everything else.

Well, in my experience jealousy is a good fuel to improve (unless it's too much and instead of being a driving force it becomes a sterile form of self-torture... C; ), so good luck with finding your way! C:

That's a great habit, but, in fact, only a very few people answer the comments :/ and that's the reason I appreciate so much the time you take to do it, even when you have a lot of them :3

Namecchan Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
Ha ha, maybe it's because "a lot of comments" for my standards aren't more than 20... Not so difficult to reply to them! C;

Anyway, glad you appreciate the effort (?)! C;
I'll always try to get back to people who comment! <:

Thank you for joining! :woohoo: I'm a beginner artist myself and need a lot of work on my drawings so I made the group to help get other beginner artists a lift up into the drawing world. So your tutorial and your aid would be greatly appreciated!

Ha ha, I totally get it! C: I'm self taught too, so I need to read tutorials as much as I can! C:
I've got a couple more tutorials in my gallery (one more for Ezio and one for Altair), but the style is quite similar, so I'm not sure they can be helpful! >< )

Well, you are amazing for self taught. I've only been drawing on and off for a couple years now. I focus more upon my writing. :)

Cool! C: I'll add them next week, now I'm about to finish for the day and then I'll be away from home for a couple of day! C:

Cool, I've drawing for a couple of years too! C: I've always loved it, but I've really started to try and improve a couple of years back! C:
I'll check your writing ASAP as well! <:

I loled so bad at your chibis at the beginning and the end :XD:

Anyways *TRIES TO SUCK IN EVERYTHING LIKE A CRAZY* ahem! By the way, because of you I've lately remembered to flip the picture more times than I used to :D

Ha ha, glad lil' Clo made you laugh! XD (and let's not forget lil'Ezio and his "clever" face...C; )

I don't know if my tutorials really are useful... I feel like I'm not really explaining anything! D: But I'm glad to know now you flip more because of me! X3 Clo, the stern one...XD

sunbeamattack Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
LOL! "Clever" indeed XD

At least they give me a different perspective on how to make things and because of them I really do remember to flip more often. Before you made these tutorials, I flipped once or maximum of twice, but now I keep on flipping the pic all the time. In fact, in one of the things I did a while ago, I even flipped the final image and saved the pic that way :D

Ha ha, glad you think so! XD

Well, I really like tutorials, but I love simple walkthroughs/WIPs as well, that's why I post mine even though they're not super descriptive... <:
Of course not everyone can like the same style I favor, and I guess a lots of people prefer a more refined style (or a rougher one! C: ) and will think this is irrelevant to their art, but in my experience every little tutorial can give you something! C:

Thanks for reading and commenting btw, lovely love! <:

Chu from Clo and Ezio <3

I would post my WIPs as well, but I'm just afraid that I would spam people with them XD I also love to see WIPs and tutorials, gives me bigger insight to the artist's mind :3

I've got a vastly different style(and skill level too lol ), but I still find your walkthroughs inspiring. I can always snatch ideas from others even, if we don't share the same style :D
