Hey guys!

Jungle Girl steps and tutorial by ToolKitten can you imagine that with a super detailed tutorial about painting backgrounds into lineart that has none? Lets do this :D

I know a lot of you are on board already with the patreon site! good call, lots to come!

In the next couple days, my patrons will be able to download the .pdf of the entire Azure preview issue, plus the first High res lines to color!

I am uploading high res line art files to use in guided instruction from myself, as well as give aspiring colorists something to practice with.

There are lots of things going up on there for patrons only that I am skirting the grey area with as far as uploading period, such as the high resolution working files for you to learn with.

but hey, you guys have been asking for tutorials for a long time, and I like to work more closely with people, but guided instruction is also coming with tutorials and files to work with! Then there's the bonuses of exclusive prints and books as well, what more could you ask for?

Jungle Girl steps and tutorial by ToolKitten
Jungle Girl steps and tutorial
It's small and you can probably only see the bigger steps at this size, but some of you like to see them anyway.

:star::star::star::star::star::star: One of the biggest reasons I am starting patreon is to be able to fund the downtime it takes to make detailed tutorials from these materials. :star::star::star::star::star::star::star:

But for the first time ever, I will be taking these, making videos, and writing detailed tutorials for such things step by step so you can learn some really cool techniques and also to give you guys some lightbulbs above yer heads, you know, because you see things you never thought of.

I hope you join me in this venture, we have lots to explore! :heart:

lines by Frank Cho, colors by me!
