Crystals Progress Tutorial by Pikishi Crystals Progress Tutorial by Pikishi
I've been asked multiple times if I could make a tutorial... So I tried to make one. It's mostly a progression of the way I draw crystals but I hope you can find it useful in some way. Sorry for not giving more detailed information than "add this and add that", English is not my first language and I have some difficulties explaining with it. But anyway, I still hope it helps! c:

Pikishi : In step 7, you said you put the shadow inside randomly. I tried to make it randomly but it didn't look like your tutorial. Is there any tip or rule for adding those shadow? Please instruct me! Thank you in advance.

You have a fantastic process for drawing crystals.  I can relate to these steps as I drew a lot of rocks in high school lol.  Really well done and I appreciate that you are sharing your process with the world!! :D

Yay!

I've just followed this tutorial and drew a cluster of crystals in 30 minutes. They're a bit comic book-y but they actually look pretty good! I'm going to practice this some more because it's such a lovely effect and so rewarding!

Thank you for sharing this!
