i think i wanted to play around w this a little more but i drew it 2 nights ago so i cant remember what i wanted to do so its as good as done 2 me now
anyway im rereading brave story and im understanding more things and enjoying it a lot more than before i think?? im trying to read a chapter a day but idk whatll happen when i start school again hhaha
so… here’s the practise pic I made trying out things Lyrl showed me in her tutorial video (again, thanks for the great work, darling!). I can’t really say I’m satisfied with what I did, but it was the very first try, so… I like this way of shading, so I will probably continue to work like this, maybe tweak and twist it until it becomes “me” so to say (although I don’t really have an idea yet where I want to arrive with it). The linework on the other hand… maybe I should have colored more of the lineart. It looks too strong. Maybe I drew too strongly from the start, I don’t know (taking out some opacity looked stupid ^^’). I need to remember making finer lines I guess, not those thick ones I use on my askblog xD; The background is pretty random. I didn’t use a layer over the rest and make patterns with it, it just wouldn’t have fit the pic I guess. All in all, nothing really fits together here, neither the colors nor the shades nor anything, but it’s just a quick test pic I did to train. Why did I upload it to Pixiv? I have no idea xD; I guess for the other pic I was collecting techniques for, I’ll only use very few of the methods discussed in the video because they might not fit the pic. I don’t know. I did most of the lineart and wanna start coloring soon. I think it needs to get even softer than that.
