First and Foremost

Everyone always asks how to become a warrior; well, here it is:

  • Users join as an apprentice.
  • Apprentices ask questions if need be from experienced users. Before an apprentice puts art up, they should get basic guidelines from one of the tutorials listed below; i.e: art program, shading style, basic instructions etc.
  • Journey from apprentice to warrior.
    • Have three images approved.
    • Know how to use shading, highlights, blur, etc.
    • Be able to put in good critiquable comments to others' images.

Example Image

We all know that sometime you just can't describe a colour. You want somebody to darken the image, but when they do, the colour looks weird. You want somebody to lighten the earpink, but when they do, the colour is just off. If you really just want to show the artist the colour the earpink or eyes or pelt really should be, you can just use the colour example image. Just save the image to your computer and bucket fill it with the proper colour you want the artist to use, and then reupload the image over the previously mentioned file with what the colour is for, the artist, and the image the colour is for. For example, you could say "Earpink for Wildheart7's Rain (TB)", if you were uploading an earpink colour for my TB image of Rain. Then you would go to (again, just an example) my section on the Tweak Page and put this code: [[:File:Colour.example.png|(insert whatever you want to say here)]] under the section. You'd then say "(insert whatever you want to say here)" or whatever you were going to comment on. Remember, guys, the image shouldn't be used every time you want the artist to darken the stripes or lighten the earpink - just when they really don't get it. Hopefully that was helpful. llwildheartl

Abnormal Lineart

Here is some ways to change up the lineart to match the character decription better. A few things to make sure of:

  • Make the new lineart thick
  • Check the box that says "Hard Edge" when erasing to make sure you get it all
  • Double check to make sure there's no waste
Chances are this is the only type of lineart change you will need to make. Its simple. Just erase the ears tip and draw in the new gap using true black. Some good examples are Lionheart, Yellowfang and Bluestar.
Tornear
Another likely lineart change is patchy fur. You can see some examples on Dappletail and Stoneteller, or for really patchy fur, Running Horse Pretty much the same steps as the torn ear.
Patchyfur
All lineart changes are basically the same. Erase, redraw, fiddle with it, put it for approval. Easy peasy. Heres some more abnormalities:
Stumpy tails like Halftail and my favorite, Berrynose
Stumptail
Ragged fur like Silverhawk and Raggedstar
Raggedfurtut
Twisted feet like Oddfoot and Cinderpelt
Twistedfoot
Tuffed ears like Redtail and Tawnyspots
Tuffedears
A crooked jaw like Crookedstar

Tweaking

This section is mostly for warriors, though some apprentices may need to use one or two of these for a normal image every once and a while.

Changing Pelt Lengths

Here is how you change the pelt length of cats without having to do a completely new charart pixel (invaluable if you like the original picture a lot, you did the wrong pelt length and don't want to start anew, or for consistency purposes)

Blurred Lineart

Blurred lineart is something you'll probably run into a lot when you're tweaking. It's actually a lot easier to fix than you'd think. Just follow these steps and you'll be fine. Sorry if it doesn't make sense at some parts, I'm horrible at explaining things.
