you can also go to the main layer, click "select source" go a layer up, and click "clipping group". makes things a lot easier.
and you can keep adding layers up, just remember to click "clipping group"

Very helpful tutorial so thanks.

I've been lately very interested in this techinique so it's very helpful when people explain what they do in different layers.

Just wow, man. I think the 'backwards' shading works a hellavu lot better overall than the other way around.

Tried this tutorial out and am ecstatic with the results! I've attempted it the 'normal' way, but I got frustrated when trying to find how the lighting would look if it were real. Taking away is much more simplistic and less hassle-y. Thank you so much for this!

I noticed that if you use smudge in photoshop it's just like the water brush in SAI c:

Hmm, very interesting! I've never done it with a de-saturated colour like that. I may need to give it a go and see how I like it :D

Ooohhh thank you! :'D I've been looking for a way to shade that works for me, the 'normal' way that most artists do it just doesn't sit right with my hand. Maybe this'll work better for me, I've always wondered how exactly you shade anyway. 8O Thanks Sky!

It's not that uncommon to use the shading colour first and then erase it, I saw a rather skilled classmate doing shading the same way :)
First tutorial I saw about this technique though ^^
