Painted Crystal Tutorial by DanSyron Painted Crystal Tutorial by DanSyron
sorry i've been busy lately.  Made a crystal tutorial in my stream today to help out with all those nerds who like making shiny things.  This is also the basic method I use on Syron's crystals as seen here:
 Syron the Fox (2014) by DanSyron

All the painting was done on 1 layer in photoshop cs3.  All effects are in Photoshop.  Have some fun making things!

Tutorial and art by me!
You can pop into my streams over at www.picarto.tv/live/channel.ph… for more tutorials and workshops.

I'll try this with Rico eventually, as I originally design Rico to control water & ice.

Hmmmm, swirlies in crystals *u*
In my view quite a understandable tutorial for crystals. Now I'm sure of it that mine won't look that flat.

Other than looking at :iconpikishi:'s tutorial on how to create crystals, I think this is probably the other one I can say is simple and understandable out of all of them that I have seen. This would definitely be useful for when I draw landscapes.

Thank you making this tutorial, by the way. It is spectacular!
