Big eyed yellow thing.

Recommended Posts

So after a few weeks playing with Affinity tonight I decided to scan in a drawing to see what I could come up with. I have to tell you I love this software.

 

I first traced the outline and filled with black to create a solid silhouette, I then created all the other objects in front.

 

Hope you like!

Cool. Would never have thought to put, what turns out to be the outline, behind the other objects. Excellent stuff!

Really nice done denironaut - can you sent me the affinity file. I am helpless in shadowing the lines. Can I analyse your sketch please?

:rolleyes:

Ah, very cool done: So first you shaped the ground in black, then you added the body colour and the shadow and last time some more details - is this right?

It works pretty well I think :-) I learned something from you - thank you very much!

 

Maybe a pro will do it another way, maybe they will show us here ;-)

There really no right or wrong way. You just have use the way that work best for you and your art.  There are numerous ways to go about shading it really depends on what style you are choosing for your image. Sometimes I use a pixel base brush to so shade sometimes I use black and white to working value and then overlay color on top.Sometimes I just use gradients to illustrate shading. Sometimes I use the same color  and just change blending modes to and adjust the opacity of layers to get the level of shading I am looking for, this is probably the most flexible method. Maybe I will have some time to create a tutorial over the weekend to illustrate what I mean.

I think your method works well, whether you have the outline at the back or the front is up to you and the nature of the outline, I like working this way, it's easy to change things as you go. Very nice work :)

Yes pretty much so, I'm not sure if this should be normal practice, it just seemed to work in this instance. Not sure what the pro's do!

Mmm, done well you have young Jedi! The end, does justify the route. Job done.

@Kathrin

 

As promised here a video on one of the shading techniques I explained earlier. I will try and produce a few more this week but hopefully it will give you an idea  on how to use one technique to shade your art.

The wrong way makes you bang your head against the wall. :angry:

The right way makes you bang on and on and on... :D
