    This resource thread is for anyone to ask their questions to the community. If you are unsure about something or want to know about different tools, mediums and techniques or anything else in between.

    Can anyone recommend any free software for creating anime like art?
    Or techniques to use on programs like paint or paint.net ?
    More specifically I'd like to know about shading and shadows.

    I do not know of any programs for specifically anime styled art, I think it comes down to your own techniques though I have heard of chibi and avatar generators though that uses preexisting assets that others have created.

    Shadows and shading in paint? Because there is no control over the opacity of the brushes, you would have to rely more on gradually changing the tone of the colour to darker. Kinda like the pixel art for the sprites for the classic SNES games and such.

    Hi,

    Back when the prequels were coming out there used to be sites where you can find galleries of photo shoots of the cast in costume against plain back grounds.

    Do any such sites exist for TFA or Rogue One?

    I'm looking for photos like this: click here

    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)
