This is a tutorial that shows how I made my beach background for my Beach Baby Doll. It's got a lot of ideas that can be used for other beach and waterscape scenes, such as the kind of hues for the water and the sky and when to dither and when to AA. It is NOT an explanation of colour picking, dithering or AA themselves, but involves those things. Watch out for tutorials in the future for those things specifically, I simply can't cover them all in one tutorial
Does require the user to have small, basic knowledge of terminology such as "dithering", "AA" and "hue". Therefore I would recommend this for intermediate difficulty and above.
This is SO MUCH helpful!^^ I actually used only the sky part, because in what I'm going to do does not... well, include sand and water. ._. the only term I don't understand is "AA". =_= If it's not hard to you, could you please clear it up?
I know, that's why I wrote in the description "can be used for things with sand OR water OR sky" and why I wrote "It is NOT an explanation of colour picking, dithering or AA themselves, but involves those things. Watch out for tutorials in the future for those things specifically, I simply can't cover them all in one tutorial"
Please try and bare with me, I WILL do my best to write a tutorial for each aspect but at the time, it was easiest to make a beach/sky one because that's what I'd just worked on
Aw that's great, I'm glad I made it seem less intimidating for you c: I don't know where the idea to do a beach scene came from, the only thing I actively avoid is human faces/figures and I'm trying to fix that a little with learning to doll
