i useillustrator. i find an image i like and render it out. i block off large sections and use a darker or lighter version of the selected color to add accents and shadows. its like a stylized cartoon you could say.

So it's that cell shading that people started doing a couple of years ago. I like it. It looks really cool. Pretty much you make an outline of everything then you color it in and shade it.

Ofcourse it's not as hard as starting from scratch but it still takes a lot of skill especially to do the shading.

You should make those in wallpaper sizes. Like 800x600 and 1024x768.

i wouldn't call it cel-shading. thats more for 3d objects and to make it seem hand drawn. like alot of video games today. this style is more complicated and only 2d.

glad you like it.

Wow those look awesome! How could I learn how to make something like that?
I just posted a tutorial 2 posts up.

That tutorial is very basic though and you would have to experiment a lot more with the shading.
