Tutorial for soft cell shading by getty Tutorial for soft cell shading by getty
As I promised to some of the people here, I'm releasing the first tutorial here.

This is the tutorial for how to do soft cell shading on Photoshop, based on my experience.

The version of Photoshop used in the tutorial is 6. If you use later versions, names of tools/modes and/or allocation of shortcut keys might be different.
I'm working on Windows, so if you use Mac please change these notations as: Ctrl to Command, Alt to Option.

I just hope it helps you.

This is the best tutorial on soft cell shading I've ever seen.
I'm using SAI and not photoshop but this still helps alot in understanding how this shading style works at all.

I was stuck in your tutorial in the part where you say you have to 'group' the layers so that you only color on the basecolor layer, but I'm pretty sure you mean 'clipping'. Using control+g creates a group where you can put your files if all the layers get to confusing. Using Alt while clicking between the two layers will create a clipping mask, which is what you showed in your tutorial.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something, but I just wanted to let you know :meow:
It's still a good tutorial tho. :)

This is an excellent tutorial. I've been trying to get better at shading for a while, and while I try to work on my own mostly, this tutorial I've found most useful and will be trying it out on a drawing I'm working on, which I'll link to you when it's finished. ^.^ Thank you for spending your valuable time to help less experienced artists. I love your style by the way. ^^
