I recently took an attempt to paint like this artist shown below and had alot of trouble. I tried to paint constructively starting with a base layer and then building up from that with atmospheric depth, light + shadow but it seems I hit a wall. Due to my own abilities or perhaps i'm just having a bad day, I cannot visualise how to build up the colours to get a similar effect. There are alot of anime tutorials out there so I was just wondering if anyone had encountered videos (speedpaintings etc) that depict anime artwork similar to this style. It would really help me a long way to getting the desired result and up-ing my skills as well. It does not even have to be in the anime style as long as the colouring/lighting is the same. I am not sure of the artist's name as I discovered him in a book on "100 bishoujo artists" but the website is linked here. I am sad to say that most of his/her painting on the website are very "ecchi" so NSFW and it is really a shame as it distracts from the fantastic painting quality.
Thank you for taking the time to look at this.
