Another rough

Drew some more today,
I feel like I don't do a very good job of maintaining the look of the line art when I color faces. I tend to exaggerate the position of the mouth, so it makes shading sort of awkward. I might experiment some more with this sort of colouring style, though.

  1. Actually, that looks a lot more feminine than your other sketches.

    That said, still no ahegao.

    1. Yeah, my first thought when I saw these was that they were unquestionably feminine.

  5. I really like the upper right picture! Makes her seem very mysterious, almost like shes looking at a magical something or other.

    1. The reason the style in the top right is so bright, is that for certain colors you just leave it the color of the background. It's a style common with markers, which was the kind of look I'm trying to go for. The difficulty I have is that for extreme shading where shadows cover half or more of the face, I have to define contours, which tends to make the character look different. Whereas with simple shading (the bottom one), it's pretty simple.

      As for darker skin colors, aesthetically, I don't really like dark skin with bright hair colors. My favorite combination is darker skin, black hair, and yellow eyes. Always looks cool.

    2. I think the problem with the marker style coloring is that it gives the illusion of a very metallic or oiled surface. Skin and hair in many cases has a more plain color and that's why the high contrast looks somewhat odd.

      I myself am a fan of cel-shading but having the ability to take a picture with more contrasts and gradients is usually a plus, although it's much harder to pull off right.

    3. I don't really think that the high contrast looks odd on the skin. It looks odd on the hair because I haven't really shaded it well in a way that fits with the style.

    4. Also the shading on the hair suggests a powerful light source coming from the left which doesn't agree with the shading on the head.

    5. Hmm, I don't know if the top right really has any defined light source, it seems a bit all over the place. It looks more like extension of lineart.

      And in the third picture I'd say there's a conflict here:

    Well, the sketch looks pretty well. A few sketches more and your lineart will be perfect.

  9. i like both cell shading and soft shading... so cant choose which i like better.

    she is leaning towards more feminine now, but i think it will be most obvious when we get to see below the shoulders : ^ )

  10. The shading on nose and mouth on the top right one looks great.

  11. That's probably one of the reasons I follow you that much:
    Oh god your drawn are soooooo beautiful!
    I particuliary like the up-right one.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I really like the style and how you draw. I also like both type of shading.

  13. I like the top right the most, mainly due to the feeling of shadowing it has. A combination of that and the bottom would be idea.
