Anime Screenshot Tutorial by BechnoKid Anime Screenshot Tutorial by BechnoKid
Tutorial for

First tutorial in a long time. People asked how I did this and HERE YA GO. Please note that there really is no RIGHT WAY to create a fake anime screenshot. You'll need to observe, OBSERVE, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, OBSERVE.

This is merely my method of how I render fake screenshots, so please feel free to mess around with whatever tips I give you in here.

Got any more questions? See some typos? Are things here just as confusing as figuring out how Frosty the Snowman came to life? Please ask and I'll try to give you the best answer and fix mistakes the best I can. C8 Thanks for coming!

I'm not very good at making anime backgrounds, and I've tried following this tutorial for a while now but I just can't get the same results. If anyone here can show me how to make a professional anime background, I'd really appreciate it!
thank you for this tutorial !
Will definitely use this.

This is cool. . . . I do the same thing too, the OBSERVING stuff.
until my ass get kicked (just kidding, just a slap in the face). She thought i was staring at her butt, but actually, i visualized it as a manga character passing by since she was wearing black skinny jeans and shades appears to be a charcoal shade to me and cant help but to stare on it until i realize it was a butt. She come to me with a ANTI-PERVY look and spare me a slap.

Lesson: Observe Carefully and Cautiously!!!

. . . . yet i agree with Observing, Still.
until now, i love comparing, criticizing, and appreciating anime, manga, anime figures since all are my frustration.
I'm not that good artist, but your style is really cool i think i'll try it too hahahahahaha Thanks

I feel sorry to my wife too. . .  (i'll make sure not to do it when she is around hahahaha)

Gosh, if only I had those programs, a tablef and any measurable drawing ability...
Oh well! I guess I'll just stick to writing instead. XD
