So, I decided to do a tutorial?? I suck at explaining, but hey, why not.
Gotta do the sketch!! I always do those things with light, so I won’t get confused later! Also, i realised that Yenndo is a bit too… You know. He isn’t that colorful so it would be difficult to see that the colors change on him, so I added little Minireena to show how the colors are affected by other colors.
You should also do the color palette and make it half not visible?? What? Um, that thing where you make the layer less visible? The layer shouldn’t be at 100-80%, but you can make it 80-40% if you want!
Now, do the coloring and basic shadows! It’s pretty simple, you just take the colors and do whatever!
Make the shadows and colors look softer and more realistic and add extra light from their GLOWING eyessssss, ye. It’s optional, because duh, human eyes don’t glow in the dark.
After that, make the light from the eyes softer. so that they would look more realistic, because human skin isn’t as shiny as metal, plastic or glass. This is also optional.
PEW! Now the color palette and the sketch are gone! Add light and shadows to make it look better, BUT! We aren’t done yet!
Make the main layers invisible (except for the light and dark stuff because we need them) and draw some basic shapes, I decided to do wires, because why not. If you don’t want to do the background, then it’s totally okay! I don’t like drawing background too, but for the sake of making this look better and not as empty, I’m just using some easy tricks to save some time.
Copy the background layer and play with it! Mirror it, move it around and don’t make it stand out too much, or it’ll look weird.
Tada! It looks messy, but that’s probably because I’m bad at digital art :/
Anyway, hope it helped you with shading or coloring!
