Experimenting with Shading


Experiment success!

i decided to do a random drawing, then i decided (since i'm generally not very good at it) to try and shade him. following duchednier's advice was able to create this.

it was pretty fun and had a nice ending effect. i think i'm gonna do some more of this "shading" stuff.

good work, but maybe 2 or 3 different subtle layers of shading will help.

fluffkomix responds:

thanks, i'll try that next time!

not a terrible start

the hair just makes him look lop-sided though....

the proportioning of the hands are absolutely7 horrendous!!! i reall dont like the hands

the shading isnt bad, and it gives the viewer a sense of where the light is coming from

but it seems too faded into the color to tell...

pretty good start...

just practice :)

7/10, 2/5

fluffkomix responds:

i don't like the hands either.

i tried making subtle shading, but is it maybe too subtle?

practice makes perfect :)

wait howd you get 2/5 from 7/10????
