shading tutorial guide thing idkthis isn't really a tutorial someone just wanted to know how I do things so here it isMore Like This
here's how I do shading. it's super simple
look a thing to shade
then I picked a color slightly bluer and darker and put a new layer on multiply, blocking in the shading. obv it's more complex with other things but basic idea. if you don't know where to put shadows look it up there are a billion tutorials. or just look at something with light shining on it
then I do one of two things, depending on what I feel like doing
a) I blur it
this is easiest but it can look weird and textureless
b) I erase it.
I lightly erase at the edges, which isn't as blended and thus looks rougher, which can be good. that's what I used for my pose sets. I don't really know how to show this properly so no image. just try fiddling around, which is something I suggest in general
then highlights, which is basically light color + blur like the shading
but THEN is the most important thing I want to say, which is bounce lighting.
