The link you gave me was to Jiyu-Kazes' YouTube account, this is not your account. There is a setting in CS6, where you can create a 3D model. I believe he uses the 3D model, (like, makes it himself) and then just colors it. Which is still pretty amazing since he is making the 3D model himself Granted, he can just do flat images, but I think he may use the 3D generator most of the time for these types.
Shinke, you don't make 3D art. You can draw, but it's not 3D. In the one image you have drawn of a girl, it could be 3D but the depth in the shading and the highlights aren't enough to bring the image 'out' of the paper.
He probably just paints the shadows to get the right effect first and then just puts color over it, instead of doing the whole thing from the beginning with color and risking messing up the right shadow
awesome... you're really professional. i have a question and i'll be thankful if you answer. I'm good at sketching on paper but i don't know how to work in photoshop. So please guide me where to start. (and forgive my bad english)
The idea, by using textured brushes for the background and then blurring it, is great Better then trying to draw with a blurred brush I guess. Your style looks like some kind of 3d render - really unique style The hair details definitely give it an aesthetic touch. Only the flower stalks seem a bit heavy and glued together.
They're using the occlusion painting method which actually calls for the shadows to be done first. ;o Then again, I guess doing the flat colors first is also a way, but to get the right occlusion effect you'll need to make the colors invisible anyways.

Wow! May I learn from this how you color? I have the hardest time with coloring and shading and I want to be able to achieve what you achieve. *i also really look up to you as an artist but that is beside the point xD*
