Don't juddgge meeeeeeeee xP
Hehehe, alright! So, I tried out a new style of shading. Instead of going through and picking out darker shades of the base colors, I used a darkish, pale purple color to shade the entire thing, and set it to multiply. I did a tiny bit of highlighting, but it was difficult for me to make it look right. The characters also ended up looking much darker than I intended because of the angle I chose for lighting.
The background is random. It wasn't the focus, obviously. And due to this particular picture being cats, I had some trouble making the fur look legit because I have no way of using pen pressure. I did this all with a mouse (aside from the drawing itself), and I'm sure other people can do better than this with a mouse, but I'm aware of my current limits.
SO! Can I has critique? =3 Seriously, even if this looks awesome to you (which I really appreciate if you do like it :heart , I would love to hear some tips on how I can improve my shading, textures, and lighting direction.
I will give credit to this tutorial by TamberElla on dA for giving me many tips already with this tutorial. I admit I mostly used the "erase-away" shading technique, but I have been using this for quite awhile now, so I've already adopted it in my own shading style. I'm just looking to improve the best I can.
I hope you all like it! <3
