Normal vs my shading

my shading is nowhere near realistic but i do that on purpose, not aiming to be realistic :)

the normal version isn’t realistic either, it’s just it’s plain and i used to shade that way and the pics weren’t so lively

I really like your shading techniques Kawacy! I too find that shading comes alive when you don't limit it to one set of colors. It really adds a dimension of life all its own!

I don't really get it ;-;, like which one is the highlight..the circle? the end of the arrow? how far do you move the hue for each shade? etc. I really like your shading style so I just wanna ask ^^;;

It's interesting because your shading uses the same concept as pixel art does! I never thought about using it for other things! Simply brilliant! OuO

It's not very easy to do on paint, but it is possible :)
A better free alternative for MS Paint is Medibang Paint, as it comes with layers and effects

i personally dont like realistic stuff because i never see anything as vibrant as art from the mind. My art teachers always says this style of art will get you nowhere in life but look at you kawacy. You can make a living of your amazing art.

Don't misunderstand what your art teachers tell you, you can only break the rules when you know them.
