Ain't a tutorial really, more of a progress image of your way to draw lava.
Some helpful text in it would make it a tutorial, not everyone are familiar with all those brushes, effects and other tricks.

Also see below the deviation for texts on a step by step instruction. This is a tutorial!! If they chose not to put words exactly on its progress, so people can see the progress, that is what they have chosen to do so.

Then they should read up on them if they are not useful here. It's really not that hard! Or hard to search for other useful tutorials on DA! Seesh! Maybe this is why the artist chose not to do that!

Then they simply shouldn't be called TUTORIALS. He claims he ain't no teacher, and tutorials teach people how to do this and that.

It is really just a process thing and not a tutorial ... And if you say other wise than you have not seen other “real“ tutorials here on deviantart.

/thats all I have to say

The instructions were added AFTER I said what I think about it. So don't try and act like I wasn't clever enough to look if there is any.
You clearly missed my point anyway, so I don't even bother to argue with you who instead of thinking just goes and bawws if someone says against the artist.

I'm not going against the artist, i'm going against you. And personally I don't think the artist here appreciates you spamming everything.

...You clearly seem to misread /everything/ I say and just blindly rage at me.
I said that I was the one saying something against the artist. You were the one that bawws for someone like the previously mentioned. Damn you really should use your brains for once.

It doesn't make this a tutorial, still. How a new deviant who views this and isn't familiar with ryky is supposed to know about that?

I don't think these should be called tutorials. More like a step-by-step drawing. Many people use the keyword tutorial to find some actual tutorials that have helpful text on them, so they know what the artists does. These are not helpful for people who don't master SAI as well as he does, for example.

I would be able to follow along with this without text! Pictures are easy and if you have a basic understanding of any photo shop program. Well, this is very easy to follow and if you don't have a basic understanding of it, then you might want to read up on them. These are always lovely!! And very, very, easy to follow!!
