“Do you think we’d be friends if we weren’t like, stuck together in the same town? Like we were stuck together in girlscouts? Like… uh… is this just… what’s the word?”
“I don’t know. I honestly don’t. My entire life feels like running after something that keeps moving away into the distance, while I stay in the same place. … And I guess proximity counts for a lot right now.”
I was on my car on the way to work when some DJs for a local radio station started talking (gushing) about these lyrics, and this is literally one of my most favorite Disney songs. I couldn’t pass up the chance to scribble something (even if I’m not that good, sorry x’D).
Sorry if the first pic looks a bit different from the rest. I drew it some time before the rest.
How do you figure out lighting? I can never figure out shadows on a human face. It's way different than a ball or block. Any tips?
EXCELLENT QUESTION one that fucks me up too even tho i’ve been drawing for a million years. I don’t think i’ve mastered lighting on the face yet, so i don’t really have a lot of tips to offer but here’s what i got:
I guess first and foremost you have to familiarize yourself with the planes that make up the face. I only laid out the main ones here. Once you figure out where the hard edges of the face occur, it’s quite easy to lay out the most basic shadows.
Sometimes i don’t constrain to realistic planes (like around the nose and lips) but that’s mostly because it’s just my style.
Because the cheek is flat (in relation to the front of the face) it catches a lot of light even in the most dramatic lighting. It’s one of my favorite places to light up HEH (even if it’s extremely subtle)
I also have a few lovely guides to share ! Most of these are tutorials on how these artists accomplish their lighting techniques, but i thought they were extremely helpful.
…ANd THEN THe forest girl grew up and so did everyone else, and she married the person she met one time when she was 12, thus ending of the swapped version of the story. SO MUCH happened in this arc (that i love) and i couldn’t even get to my favorite bits, but…that’s the ending. …I mean, theres not MORE after this. Surely nobody would be crazy enough to continue something that had a solid enough ending 8) *nervous laughter* ….
