Cell Shade Tutorial by WieldstheKey Cell Shade Tutorial by WieldstheKey
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.
