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.
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?
Désolée si quelqu'un a déjà commenté sur ça...Mais perso j'ai la version CS4, soit il me manque un outil prédéfini, soit ça n'existe pas sur cette version --' en tout cas merci pour ces tips ils sont géniaux, ça aide beaucoup!
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
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'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.
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.
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.
