As promised forever ago, a quick visual breakdown of how I sketch with the lasso tool.
Now you all know just how lazy I amlol..not really, I hate to demonize any tool. It’s just a super generic technique I’ve sort of become obsessed with. Making sketchy blobs look like things. — (On Deviantart)
Aida showed me this cool trick a while ago and its turned into a HUGE staple with how I light things now! Gradient Mapping in photoshop is a subtle way to change the colors in your work and works just like a photoshop mask layer! Meaning, you can change the transparency and how much of what part gets the color influence.
Gradients are also 100% customizable but photoshop is programmed with a few core staples for dramatic and vibrant lighting. The key is finding the saturation you want or like for the art you’re working with! I cant really teach that. 8D
hope this helps others! Play with your lighting!
This is as close as you’ll get to a tutorial by me, a tutorial by someone else about a thing I showed them!
You know how some pro artists post ‘sketches’ that look like finished work and then you hate them but then they like your dolphin sketches and so you love them? Yeah.
I just started making some references for myself, but got carried away hahah… ha :’D
I figured I’d share. I’m hoping to make a series of these things for all the drawing bits that give me trouble: woman torsos, hands, wings, different body types, etc.
I hope you also find them useful!
AHHh yes you may totally use it as long as you credit me somewhere!! TY FOR ASKING it totally didn’t come off as rude I’m flattered someone would actually want to have my art on their blog!! ehe ヽ(；▽；)ノ
