Experimenting~ by ThatWildMary Experimenting~ by ThatWildMary
I'm happy but not entirely satisfied because I'm not satisfied with anything as of lately because of a few reasons v:
Decided to experiment some painting stuff, playing with brush settings, pallettes AND shading/lighting techniques.
What do YOU say about this coloring style?

I say foda. This is really really good! I love the deep shading and the highlighted areas look great as well, the grayscale version looked like a 3d sculpture imo. I also love the texture you created for the background and for the character too.

Now, if you're not fully satisfied with your results, I can try to give you a few tips. First, give some more light to the eyes, they look kinda dull to me and maybe that makes it looks more like a sculpture. Give them more life. Second, this is something I suggest to everyone and I thank the person who taught me this: after you have your image done, flatten it in one layer, press ctrl + B and go crazy with color balance. Really, mess it all up until you're happy. Something else you can do is slap some random colors over the drawing and play with layer modes (multiply, overlay, etc). Keep in mind contrast is the key to an attractive picture, and colors will help you a lot with that, contrast is not just black against white.

Anyway, I don't know why you're so unsatisfied with your art lately, cause in every new drawing you show me I see improvement, specially in this one here! Not to mention your style is fab! Keep on arting, bby. uvu

The "3D sculpture" look is pretty much the main idea of this coloring style, so it won't need the lines, at least something I learned in college is usefull for me :V
As for the eyes I wasn't sure of how I could color them, but you're right, they are kinda dull :v I need to play with that a bit more~
The color balance thing is something I want to play with, never tried it, but the "random colors and layer styles" is something I do with pretty much everything I draw raiariarirai 8v I tried following something my illustration teacher said, chosing 2/3 colors and do a whole picture using variations of these colors, pretty much everything here is red, orange and yellow~ (except the little green in the eye, because there can be one little exception for the color rule thing, just to break a bit, idk how to explain this thing but I failed with what I wanted to achieve with that exception thing :V)
But yes I want to play more with that, try different brush settings and experiment a few other things~

I've been unsatisfied after one of my teachers said shit about my art, but you know what screw that guy, I'm still learning and I know that, I'm gonna keep on learning >v< thank you so much momon ilu uvu <3 I'll totally keep on arting til I'm awsome!
