Sketch

As with most things, I tend to sketch onto paper rather than draw it into an art program

Lining

My lines aren't fancy but they're clean enough to pass, at least o u o" I think about here I lowered opacity for the sketch layer so i could more clearly see my lines.

Flats

whoops i forgot to take a picture of the shading... but it's fairly basic;; But yeah, flats!

Shading And Highlights

I've already gotten everything to where I like it, I really should've remembered to take a picture laying things down. Things look a bit dark at this stage.

Coloured The Lines

Just what the title says. I clip on a layer to my lineart and colour it according to the area. I feel it makes things look softer and more finished, but I don't know if that's true :')

Effects

For this portion, I had four layers overlayed on my colouring. The four layers were overlay, luminousity and multiply for a light orange-yellow and a light blue to add some "lighting"

Finishing Touches

Easiest step, just add some (free-use) stock to make things look more finished and then....

Done

!! sorry for an extra image, it was basically done in the step before, but because of the formatting for buttons I thought it was a little confusing. This is what'll go on the button's face! (the rest is crimped in)
