I'm Kris, a hobby artist looking to get more serious! I draw mostly fanart from video games, but some OCs and other fun will be thrown in the mix as well. Please explore my blog, check out my work, and have a good day!
be noble, for you are made of stars

Bird legs and also hands. Did these little sketch notes to help out Michaela and Kitten, respectively.

First one doesn’t make a ton of sense since I was explaining half of it in skype, but essentially showing how drawing the fingertips first and then connecting them to the hand helps a bit.

Tonight’s prompt for talesof_69min was “Idol,” which made me think of Cheria’s BoA costume that was exclusive for the Wii version of Graces.

Like I could give up a chance to draw Cheria.

i have a really hard time correctly highlighting and shadowing what i would best describe as obsidian. like, i want something to be a very shiny black but i can never seem to do it without ending up with it looking really dull and washed out. anything on you can say/find on that?

artist-refs:

It’s hard to say without actually seeing your work, but based on the "dull and washed out" description, my guess is that you’re colouring your black object with just black and white and shades of grey.

If so, read on.

So, first we’re going to [Google “obsidian”] and grab an image. Load it up in our drawing program. Using the eye dropper tool, we’re picking up the colour for each section with a noticibly different shade. Now, bring the value of each of our picked colours up so they’re as light as they can go, and fully saturate them.

Unless the image you picked is grey scale, you will find that there is no black!

image

  • A: The highlights in this image appear to be white at first glance, but they’re actually light yellow.
  • B: What seems to be black is actually a dark blue,
  • C: This one’s a little more obvious to begin with; pink.
  • D: Not grey, but purple.

You might even find greens and browns in some images. Try using a similar set of colours on your image; it should give it more life.

EDIT:

the only problem with this picture is it’s also in a yellow set lighting and reflecting something. If it was in the sun it would be a bit more blue in the shadows. But lighting will always vary.

But I needed a break so here’s a quick doodle of my husband Ivar.
