Daily Doodle #30:
I think the problem I might be having is that when you do color in your work lightly, you can still sometimes see the whiteness from the page coming through the color. Maybe for your next experiment you can start by putting in a flat gray are brown background and paint over that. By doing this, it will eliminate all the white on the page so that when you want to paint certain highlights, your whites will be much stronger because it won't be competing with the white on the page. Hope that's helpful.
I really love your daily doodles, your comic style's great! But I don't know if the way you color your daily doodles gives much benefit to the picture. However it seems that when you spend a bit longer on them it looks a lot better.
and you seem to have find something in the latest one, there's a really good light there and the color gives lot more information about the picture!
lookinf forward for more!
For the next week of drawings, rather than focusing on a subject matter, I'm going to focus on lighting and color. To that end, I am making several changes to my "daily doodle" methodology.
First, I am switching from Sketchbook Pro back to Photoshop. While I prefer the simplicity of SbP's drawing tools when it comes to pure sketching, it's painting and coloring tools are extremely limited. So, as always, Photoshop draws me back into its warm embrace. Oh, Photoshop, I wish I could quit you...
Second, rather than making a sketch first and then coloring it in, I'm starting with the overall color and adding details as I go along. I think both methods have their advantages, but this way will force me to focus more on lighting and contrast and less on line work and details.
Third, I am increasing the size of the drawings a bit because...well...I just am.
