HEY bro, it be done. I tried to recreate it as best to my memory as I could. If anything, you can at least see a bare bones way of how I do things, since some of my layers were all effed up from all of the editing stuff I did after the first tag. Plus this is my first tutorial so I really hope it helps in some way.
I forgot to add the tag size. I believe it is 450x200 landscape mode.
Ok cool Ill look for it, thanks
Tell you what, I will get working on it right now, I should have it done by the end of the day. I'll post it in our shop, in a spoiler tag. See you then!
Yeah the circles were brush. Yeah I'd be down
Well those crazy circle majigs have to be 'brushes'. I can work on a tutorial for the sig I made. There are quite a few steps, but on the upside? I have all of my layers saved, I can type things in above the pictures. Pretty much what I would do is make a big tag wall. I would paste the layers, have some text below explaining what the heck I did. You down for that?
Also, side note, I saw yesterday that you said you were gonna save up to buy a macbook, I just got mine a couple months ago, everything thus far has been great except that the battery life on these is not that good. Idk if you knew that already or not. For example if you were to sit down with 100% and use gimp and safari for about 2 hours it will probably take it down to the 50% or lower. There are days where I will have to charge it twice in a day
Bro I like never use brushes so I don't follow what you mean there, but yeah I've got good ideas I just need better execution. Those were not tags, just random whatevers that I made. It depends on how much I want in there, could be a few layers or I may use like 4,5,6. And yeah I'd be down for that, if it helps me out and I can get better from it then for sure I'm down. How would we do the tutorial or do you just have a link that I'd view
The drawings are not bad, you have plenty of promise. My only thing is that your proportions need work. I think once you start learning that, you will be well on your way to fantastic drawings.
Now about your tags:
I am not sure what you are really doing in them. How many layers do you normally average? You rely on brushes waaaay too much. I think what I should do is do a tutorial for you- if that is okay. So that way you kind of learn some techniques before we do a collaboration.
Are you cool with that? You have these really cool ideas but as you said he still can't quite figure it out.

I have some drawings that I did a while ago but I just cleaned it up
I don't get super technical, but I have been a little more recently. More things to do with editing levels so that things aren't overly contrasted or bright. I do tend to have multiple layers. Shadow and lighting layers. Smudge layers. Then I make a new from visible, smudge some things out, then go from there. I tend to use similar steps in my tags but I do deviate.
