    I like to do art on the side as a hobby but I'm not very good and am still sort of just starting out. You mentioned in a previous post that using dodge/burn is not good. So how do you do your shadows? :)

    I just pick a color on the color wheel and apply it on low flow/density (photoshop/sai). I'll use the eyedropper tool to blend things out, and sometimes I'll also lock the layer (both photoshop and sai have locking options) or use the clipping mask and then I'll add in more extraneous colors to add some pop. So for the Rowlet I added a smidge of purple and the shadows are mainly blue to evoke some sort of nighttime scene.

    I do highlights the same way but generally there's a lot less highlight than shadow, this time I used bright orange-yellow for Halloween lanterns.

    Sometimes I'll pick the color I want the shadow to be, and apply it using the Multiply mode. Multiply will darken the pre-existing color beneath the Multiply layer but use the color you picked, so it's another option. I used that for my avatar/icon, I chose blue and then dropped opacity.

    But most of the time I just pick colors freely.

    Final in the Rowlet line: Reaper Decidueye!
    Going to continue this series and do Popplio next after a few days break--I just got a really big commission order from someone on deviantART (FINALLY THANK YOU NICE KIND PERSON) so I need to do that first!

    Thank you so much ;v; <3 <3 <3
    I'm just so glad I've got my drive back, even if my stamina isn't there yet. I'm slowly getting better at using SAI \o/

    Nothing today sorry!

    I did draw--I have a stack of 6 RP character sheets someone commissioned me to do, however they aren't done yet cause I gotta make sure they're satisfactory before coloring them >w<

    So nothing upload-able today :'>
