Lmao alright, well thank you anyways <3
I'll sift through the rock textures and find one that works best for me.

But I've gotta say, painting rocks have always been a huge weakness for me. I've done countless studies and looked at SO many tutorials-nothing seemed to help. Your tutorial is broken down SO well that I felt like I had an epiphany. I just got it, right away. Sure I will keep furthering this skill-but I'm so grateful for you getting me this far <3 thank you c:

im glad it helped you :) well i think drawing rocks is like drawing anything else once you break it down to form and set up a light source everything else is just adding details like frosting on a cake :)

Yeah, I think I got too concerned with the shape of the rock and teh texture. I always worried about it too early on. But your method basically lets me discover the shape and the texture. It was very fun to do <3

In case you're interested, this is the piece that I completed: [link]
And it wouldn't look half as good if it weren't for you :3

More less for it to get like in step 3 and look nice
Is it a dark color with low opacity or its better if i choose hundreds of very similar colors....and also like
Jow can i have a good shape shading
Idk why i an so bad at backgrounds

hmm, on what? rocks or? because we are all bad at backgrounds i think all you have to do is just draw them more and withexperience you will get better.
i can suggest you make a scattery brushand put color dynamics on, it will look like the rock has a texute or moss. variate lots f colors till in your eye it looks like a good rock color. that way you will have both texture and color, then you can start shading on a new layer^^
