wounded.3 by betteo wounded.3 by betteo
The thing goes on. I'm trying to keep it simple so you can get it easily. :bucktooth:

It's time for creating some "volume". No really hard tricks here, just new tones of gray. FLAT GRAYS.
:bulletblue:Two layers. Linework below, tones above (multiply).

FAQ: How do i calculate light and volume?
Art means Freedom. So let's not be attached to Laws of Physics (not this this time) So, If it LOOKS right, it IS right.

Tools used:
:bulletred: Some standard flat brush with... duh. White and black.
:bulletred: I change the transparency of the brush (very very often) to get a whole new range of tones.

20 mins.

:halfliquid: FOR TEACHING PURPOSES, THIS WILL BE HIGH-RES AND DOWNLOADABLE.

Great tutorial. Very simple.

I love the offsetting of the focal point and how the creature on the right creates this huge shape. I also love how you created a circular frame with the arms. All these simple decisions make a great piece.

Just bought your book by the way.

Exactly. You are noticing the very key elements that makes the whole difference. You know, balance... Visual flow.
Funny enough, light zones reinforce the already given composition.

My book? No kiddin!!! Have a cold beer. :beer:

Parte de la "sensibilidad" de un buen artista es enamorarse de cualquier momento de un proceso. Tú lo sabes. :hug:

This is actually so helpful. I don't do digital work, but I want to try your teachings with paint or lino prints..

And I happen to be extremely bored right now, so WHY NOT? : D

Wow, thank you so much for sharing insight into your process. I'm sure it takes time away from creating - but it's so wonderful that you're taking the time to instruct others. That's a very nice thing to do! :)

I'm not much of a digital artist (understatement, much?) but your notes and lessons have application across all media. (Lights vs. darks, etc...)

Thank you so much - can't wait to see how this one turns out.

I'm very happy that some of you (specially the ones in other graphic areas) appreciate this. ;)
Sure, It's an extra effort, but your interest/curiosity is enough pay for me. I feel lucky by simply "inspiring" others. It's far more valuable than any applause.
Keep tuned, cuz I'm about to enter COLOR realms!

Love the new color version.
