I really enjoy your art! Also your tutorials are really helpful especially if someone who is just starting to go paper to screen. I'm curious about the materials you use prior to scanning your works into the computer. What kind of paper do you use, pens, ink or anything else? I've been having trouble with making the lines look crisp or losing paper texture.

I use mechanical pencils (0.5mm or 0.35mm) on 60gr paper in general

thanks for the tips! speaking of tips, I know this is random, but I noticed you are linking to other pictures in your artist's comments there and it is actually showing little thumbnails of the pics you are linking to. How did you do that?

Yep I only use the dodge tool for highlighting shinny things. Not for shading.

once upon a time i used to use this heavily, i quickly decided against it, it looked bad.

but it's very useful when used sparingly

every tool is supposed to be used with intelligence and taste.
there is no bad tool or good tool, you can do great things if you know how to turn them out.

burn/dodge does not an artist make ;), it's all you

ideally 10-20% of a piece should be very dark, eye referential depth. 60-80% the bulk being medium tones and around 10% bright parts where eye will catch on right away. its harder to achieve balance than one might think

look how the shiny spotlight hair makes her face seem morein the shadow. left it looks like general scene lighting, all because of one highlight, i'nm not fond of that saturated purple hair effect and the direction of highlight should be vertical as per hair flow. still, a good example

tip: using dodge on darker tones works better

the sample of my drawing was just for the tuto. my final illustration doesn't contain dodge effect, because I don't really like that. and in this case doesn't match with the light direction :)

It's funny that you should make this because everyone always states DO NOT USE BURN OR DODGE TOOL EVER. I understand why because they look horrible if that's all you use, but you finally showed a situation where those tools can actually be applicable, so thankyou.

I've always though that if you know how to use the soft you've got on your hand, every thing can be effective and usefull! In any case the soft does'nt make the artist. It's a weapon for art. XD

How do you pick a 'contrasted' color for shadows, as mentioned in step 2?

I'm really not a fan of this tool. All it does is add white or black to the image. If you overdo it your pic will turn out more greyish. It's much better if you have to choose the right shade or highlight color yourself, also helps with the learning process. The way it's used here is alright though.:)

not in this case. When you apply it in highlight mode, your colors don't turn gray, they go more and more saturated and colorfull.

yes, its good to have a GOOD example of using the dodge and burn tool, i know you didn't show burn, but those two tools tend to be used like crack by the developing digital artists that haven't obtained the eye for it yet.

Less is more---good job

Orpheelin Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012
sure :) I gave a little tip. I don't use it in any other case than for making golden effects ^^. And then, sometimes it's too shiny so I come back to a "manual painted" enlightening XD!!

and this is the right way to use the dodge tool. (Kudos for having a normal shading step first. A lot of newbies skip that and it comes out glowy in the wrong places...)

I usually see people botch the use of the burn/dodge tools, and because it's often misused, the tools get a horrible reputation. (Despite that it's not the tools that are bad, but the people that use them that way!)

But I think this actually shows a very, very nice way to use it. It's not overly used (or abused) in this way, and it's just to make a touch up - not be a primary source of shading.

Love it. :)
