Since I seem to have lost forever my old cell shade tutorial, I decided to make a new one with some new techniques I've learned.

That's amazing... but maybe I'm too much of a noob to really understand it... I'm pretty bad at knowing where the shadows and shines are supposed to go.

I think the best way to get a sense for light and shadow is simply to study the things around you, and photographs.  Study portrait photos and friends and family, even have a friend sit down with a single light source and look at how the planes of the face/folds of clothing/etc. work :) For commissions like this I don't usually use reference but for more complex paintings it's best to not work completely from imagination.

Magnificient! What a stunning way of coloring, his features are so smooth and refined. I adore the concept of this character and the sleek brightness to his skin and hair besides the impressive outfit design!

You can find all kinds of software for cheap or free from the manufacturer's websites and investing in a tablet is definitely worth it!
