Wihked Cover

This is a concept for a cover to a manga my girlfriend is making on her spare time. The character you see is a mime called Kraiz. What I like about the drawing is the unique style of the shading. I did this style once before on a V for Vendetta mask that I really liked - I wish I could find it >.>

It's done entirely with mechanical pencil on copy paper. I just made the outline of the lighting and shaded around, rubbing it with my finger to smooth out the shading then erasing inside the lighted parts to make it stand out. Sadly the scanner washed out all the shading... >:( looks so cool on paper

WICKED!

Man that's beautiful, could you teach me how to do this shade style art? I probably must be annoying you but I really loved your work man and I really need some contact in this site since I don't know anyone D: anyway, your drawings are the best, keep it up like that :3


Trennto responds:

lol, thank you. It's actually not too complex. Basically you would do a light outline of what you're drawing, making sure it's just that: an outline. Then the hard part is finding out where the light would hit it and outline the parts that would be lit. After that you use only the light outlines, erasing the other ones, and shade everything in around it black. Then the drawing will only be solid black or solid white. If you're shading in pencil, rub your finger over it to make it blend better :)

You cant really see the black shading part in this one because of my scanner :( I actually was inspired by a V for Vendetta pic that I remade a few months back.. I wish I still had it to upload :( But if you want to be good at this style just look up examples, copy and remake those, then just practice simple stuff. Faces are usually the best :D good luck!
