Tears of Blood by shirua Tears of Blood by shirua
Ok after the critic which I got in my previous work mentioning that my shading is flat, I've decided to try shading it in a different way. Not sure if it has improved or still look flat but anyways, critics and comments are most welcome >.<

I think it looks better than if you tried to blend the shades and b&w degrees - with a tissue, your fingers or something; I like the effect of a rough sketch, though this is not exactly the case, it's just that the details are pronounced, yet the shading looks done in a hurry, if you get what I mean :)

well actually this is cross hatching :) I know that soft shadings are one of the ways to give a much more realistic style but I prefer this style much more (besides I learnt this from college/uni so that's why I'm used to this style =X)

Either way I guess everyone has a different idea of drawing :D Thanks for your comment though :hug:

I don't really know how various types of drawing are called, but I think I can express what I think about them in a manner which makes it kind of easy to understand ^^; Check out my drawings - they are only 3 for now, and because of lack of time, there won't be another one for some time now - there's the more realistic way of drawing shades :)

Hah, if you got accustomed to this particular style while in college, it's so much more for the better for you, you already have the appropriate skills :)

Yes, indeed, everyone has various ideas of drawing, and you can never know when they happen to shift styles a bit, just a little bit, like on the edge of 2 different ones, that's when a little bit of magic appears :)

You're very welcome :hug:
I will drop by your gallery again some other time, because unfortunately, as I said, time works against me...

yea crosshatching :) I wasn't sure if it suits this anime-ish style but no harm trying XD
Lol ideas just comes out if you keep sketching or drawing? :D Iuno lol. Some people might get their ideas in a different way but for me I would get them when I'm sketching or something inspires me by looking at other people's work :)

Yeah they do come from just randomly sketching things into my book but then it takes time to build up a strong image of what i want it to look like without it completely changing XD

Yeah its really hard XD For me normally i look at other peolpes drawing, like yours for example..i was looking at "Flow" And drew a circle and a line marking where the eyes will be..done the same on the other side and then started randomly drawing out hair and then added the face shape then added a TONNE Of hair in and then kept going XD I Love my piccy inspired by yuuuuu XD lol XD

Wow, your shading certainly doesn't look flat to me! I think it does a great job of bringing out the shapes and the spaces between them. Great composition here. =)
