I've been after a tutorial to help me express motion better, and I had almost given up hope until I found this. Thanks so much for sharing!

I just stumbled upon you while looking for motions effect and ''speed effect'' I really love this tutorial, it was a brilliant idea to copy the lineart layers to make this effect, I usually just used the smudge tool on the lineart and the shadows, but it often looked disastrous.

I think I just found the best tutorials on the same DA account to help me get set on digital drawing man, thanks a lot ^^

I don't know what you tried to draw, but to me, it's like the person is punching.
The first drawing looks right (top left) but the one where the tutorial is all about (top right and the rest) looks pretty wrong to me.
You should try punching in the air and look at your hands and arms and you will notice the NO ONES punches like that.
Still, good tutorial.

You're talking about a straight (the way most people would think about punching.)
Neither of the punches depicted in the tutorial are straights.
The tutorial is about a hook, followed by a person stepping forward for a jab (not even throwing a punch but moving forward with a bent arm.)
But thanks for the input!

soooo i had read this the other day and i had a pic that wasnt finsihed cause i didnt know how to make it look more... more. i read up on your lighting background, and even though i didnt make it look like that, i did something like that, then i read up on this tutorial... and well...

how do you think it turned out? (it was from a contest i had entered a few months back... I just never got to finish this particular entry.)

Cool! Nicely done. You used digital blurring right?
Reply
:iconninjassinwolf:
ninjassinwolf Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012  Student General Artist
yeah, you dont happen to know how to motion blur in one direction by any chance do you? i know on another program called gimp (dunno if you heard of it or not) i believe what im looking for is 'wind' or something. Not sure if photoshop has it or not...
Reply
:iconverticalfish:
verticalfish Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
OH yeah. Go to filter > blur > motion blur, and spin the wheel around to choose the direction.

:iconninjassinwolf:
ninjassinwolf Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012  Student General Artist
but that goes both directions... (i used that for that one piccy.) likeeee.... it blurs < and > so <|> i want just like... <| or just |>

:iconverticalfish:
verticalfish Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh...
Hmm I don't know if there's anything that only goes in 1 direction. ACtually, you could do a radial blur but that would take some heavy manipulation - you'd have to paste it in a different large document, put it far away from the center and then radial blur, that would make it only go in 1 direction, I think... but its a lot of work...

haha that is a lot of work... hmm...i wonder if there is an effect someone has, i know when i first started to use gimp i believe DA had someone/people, who had effects, i had gotten fire and snow before... theres also brushes and styles you can get.... but im not to sure about the effects... least for photoshop. iv never tried it. *goes and searches around*
