This is part 3.
I can not teach people about still life, i can not improve your drawing skill, all this tutorial can do is try to help you connect the concept between drawing still life, light source and cell shading art itself.

I try the "wrongs" but maybe I don't do it "wrong" enough in some cases... you need a lot of these little wrongs all add together to look REALLY WRONG. But i hope some of you can recall cases when you saw those mistakes.

Hope it helps.

You, take my soul <33 Because most of the things I thought I was doing right, and that I only had to practice, I was doing wrong. I thought of it like: ''Oh never mind, add some stupid lines out of no where'' .. Thanks again :)

I've never actually taken an art class, so this is very helpful! I'm so horrible with light sources D:

Thank you for this! <3

Apparently, I do some of those wrongs... consistantly and very often.

This helps... a lot. Thank you very much.

This helps me actually understand more on how to digitally shade, my comic may be saved yet. But how would you shade a spherical object, like a container in a dark room that is holding a person in a glowing liquid substance?

I can recognize myself with the " Don't do this " example... ^ ____ ^ " Thanks for doing this meme, it should help me a lot. XD

This was a sort of wake-up call! Your "wrong shading" version is almost exactly what I do. It gave me a "whoops" moment. Thanks!

Thank you, I shall refer to this for whenever I draw next. However, may I ask, what about light from alll around you? Like if your character uses a magic whatever around them causing light in all directions, how would you shade that? Thank you for the tutorials though :3
