hard round brushhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Nt9fa8jZUE
like whisking an egg you gotta touch little and tap tap tap blend and smooth hards into soft gradient patches and then go over with hard
>>4779859>and tap tap tapDo not do this. This is why your strokes are so shaky and scratchy looking.
>>4779833light, shadow, bounce light on shadows, occlusion shadow, highlightsall you needfor skins add some red because blood where shadow and light meet
>>4779859 those spheres tutorials are so fucking useless.
>>4779880Nah, you’re just too retarded.
>>4779880Nahh ur just fkin stupid
>>4779880Nah you’re right, that guy is bad
>>4779859He's drawing skin, not a storm in a glass sphere from 1997, Christ.
>>4779880Nah yeah they are
>>4779909But that red lady is shinier than skin is
>>4779833>it never comes out like in pic relatedDo more value studies and shut the fuck up. If you can't even do something as basic as your pic related it means you're just a beg fuck. Go practise values and ignore color for the moment.
>>4779909derp what is ALL SURFACES
sam nielsoni keep spamming this and none of you fuckers listenstay beg forever then, fuck this place
>>4780085>sam nielsonmost of his courses are on lighting which is definitely an important aspect but it won't help this anon with blending. You can do proper lighting and still suck at blending>>4779833It really be like that tho. Flat color, shade, HIGHLIGHT (you kinda skipped that one). > never comes out like in pic related - we can't help too much if we don't see what you're doing (unless picrelated is yours)
>>4779913>>4779898>>4779897>>4779894cope some more
Just fucking steal your colors from better artists till you figure it out. Nobody's gonna take a color picker to your shit and cancel you because you borrowed a pallete.
>>4779868then how would you do it then?
>>4779833Use Ctrl Paint. Hard round and soft round, the sinix vid in first reply. Albedo, shadow, and bounce/ambient are the main sources of light. Learn to use RGB color sliders for color instead of just HSB/HSV. Read Lin ran's color tutorial, Sycra also made a video on it. The sliders clearly move in a pattern you'd understand if you understood color picking with RGB sliders.
>>4780440i-is this Kino?
>>4780440Pic source?I remember that it's out of a game/VN but I forgot its name
>>4780440>>4781356Never mind. Found it.https://hitomi.la/gamecg/jouki-toshi-no-tantei-shoujo-1401257.html
>>4781229Whats sycra vid about that tut? Read it and didn't really get the advantage of the sliders over the color pick
>>4780442It's in the name: stroke.You should be stroking the canvas, not trying to scratch it or chip away at it. Smooth, fluid motions, as long as you can manage, that follow the forms.
>>4779833hey how can I up my color game? still looks kinda flat? or western comics coloring style i guess?
>>4780440dicks are so smellywhy do women and faggots love it?
>>4781906you better hope they keep loving it, or you'll be a permavirgin....permanently!
>>4781229You are missing a shade of red.
>>4781906Wash your penis nigga
>>4784644maybe he's saving it for the One
>>4784644>>4781906>doesn’t get his mom to clean his dick with her mouthNgmi
>>4781865Forget about colour until you have value down. If you look at this in greyscale you can see how flat the values are.You also have no consistent light source. Her boobs and face are lit from top left, her left arm and torso is lit from top right and the way you lit her hair makes it look like the back of her skull is glowing yellow.
>>4779833The answers is light + shadows.Also colour paletteIE using the palette from a picture of a raspberry blueberry ice cream cone for a person.
>>4781865It’s not the colours it the lack of defined light and shadows.They are much stronger in reality compared to your picture
>>4779859>>4781229color sphere fight, I vote for number two.
>>4784452correct. there are 4 shades.
>>4781906have you tried showing?
>>4779833You have to reference real life. Look at the color and lighting of a real photo, understand why it's doing what it's doing and apply the color the same way in your art.
>>4785481'pyw' is a crab mentality.Not even that guy.
