Tryin' to get in some local value and gradients and stuff.
It's not a part of my inking brain that I've developed yet
@Braden-Hallett these are fantastic! I love how you made the helmet shapes match the head shapes
Thanks! I was gettin' sick of circles
I did not practice gradienct today, got carried away by painting woods.
That last forest scene is stunning!
I was thinking about using a wash but i want to know if anyone would be willing to do a draw over and help me out with doing it with hatching. Pleases.
Are you gonna be using the wash to block in the area behind the characters? Or to reinforce the hatching?
I am finding it so difficult to lay shapes down in ink
I'm tempted to go back and relisten to the segment on contour lines myself
to my frustration the only pens I had with me were tombow markers
Yer doin' what you can with what you have. That's more than what most people do in that situation (which is nothing)
you can throw down some paint on your page and ink over it and it feels and looks way cooler
Wow! It really does! That's an awesome effect.
I am wondering is if these are little gems we will just stumble upon as we experiment, or if there is some sort of concept/guidelines we can use to figure out what would work best.
Pretty sure it's a little column A, little column B What works for one artist doesn't work for another (hence all this practice )
i know how to so straight lines
I forgive you. This time.
'sword of stabbings' needs to be on a tshirt
Same subjects, more effort
Nice work! It's really hard to get that dark value in bright light effect with ink. That star on the ball looks pretty awesome!
@Braden-Hallett nevermind, I realized it was light and shadow not local value. I think. loll not enough sleep the last two nights!
my fault, actually! I had it as 'local value' when it should be 'light and shadow'. Woops!
I've changed the original post. Sorry about that
keep my head above water and stay accountable to you guys
Do what you can You got this. A tiny bit on a consistent basis is always better than all at once (as we've all learned cramming for exams, I'm sure )
Round 1 of light & Shadow
I like You're playin' around with all kinds of interesting shapes. I should work that in, too
And my goal for artistic development at the moment is work lighter and brighter in general. I have the bad habit of going dark and grey given half a chance
