I lean towards cellshade and thick linework for most of my stuff. I love the look, but I'm frustrated that I haven't improved in years. You can only take that so far before it stops helping you improve. So I recently decided to branch out into digital painting. I think I'm doing okay just futzing around, but I'd really like some concrit! My lighting, my shadows, my technique, etc. I'm especially having trouble with hair
, I just can't get it to look like... hair. My colors are kind of ruddy, too, even though I started fairly bright
Here's the piece so far:And here it is much bigger.
I started off with hard flats and am blending them in using a combination of the marker and brush tools on PaintToolSAI, but they just look so... eugh. You can see where I haven't begun the blending process at the bottom.
Concrit encouraged. Help this stuck-in-a-rut cartoonist learn to paint
