translated a mini tutorial by TZA's request.
Hey guys, dunno if you know LINRAN, but he's a really awesome self-taught chinese artist. Check out his sketchbook here
if you haven't already.
Anyways, on his blog he posted quite a nice tutorial about light, shadows, colour...and other various aspects that I found really helpful, a friend asked me to translate it for him and I thought why not? So here it is:
PS: I apologise for the bad translation, its my first time seriously translating anything so it came out a bit awkward. I tried to follow the original as close as possible down to the tone, but I think some metaphors and other various things probably got lost in the way....anyways I hope it helps some what!
PPS: I found the info on the colour palette very useful so make sure you check that out, it's around the second half
PPPS: sorry about the length! writings in chinese are much shorter than in english, it turns out. (either that or it's my bad translating skills...I bet its the latter
