It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

Edit
:star::star: :D OMG, lol never expected this to get a DD but THANK YOU~ :heart::heart: :star::star:
Hahah I guess it suits me a little being the button maker~

Download the File please!
I was not skilled enough to make a tutorial in photoshop so I onenoted it and PDF ed it. ahha


but yeah in response to the previous poll about tutorials, I did the how to make a button one.

hmm the tutorial is more about How I make my buttons so this doesn't cover all methods.

to show a sample of how i draw button chibis instead of doing a step by step process i just recorded what I did using livestream so if you are interested in that i gave the links in the tutorial..or just down here

Alois speed paint video :film: [link]


other than that, this is my first time making a tutorial (if this is considered one) and man they are hard to make o.o

lol sorry about the spelling mistakes and the lack of layout.

this is more for those who are really interested in the process and also for those who are interested in possibly buying your own machine too.

by doing this tutorial, I learned how to use one note... a little xD

Hope this helps.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-07-06
Make a button - Tutorial? by *inu-fma88fan -- Suggester's words: I've seen tutorials on a bunch of stuff - how to make clean lineart, how to use the pen tool, how to paint realism, how to use photoshop, how to color traditionally...etc etc. However, I have never seen a tutorial that teaches you how to make your own buttons! This tutorial is extremely useful. It has tons of pictures, diagrams, and explanations, in addition to a few personal suggestions from the resource provider.

Sage advice! I'm going to get into the button-making game too to promote my comic and all on cons, so your guide is super handy!

I have a question. How do oyu print the picture in the print shop? Do oyu just submit one picture to them, and tell them you want a batch of the picture printed or do you have to layout the batch on the picture file yourself? Thanks.

How do you make sure it's printed out in the correct size? Sometimes when I print stuff myself things come out bigger or smaller than it should :(
