ive always had problems with rendering when color comes into play.
i am by no means a master of light and shadow especially when throwing color. im ok enough at them where i can draw a picture and youd believe it without too much problem.
if you asked me to draw a human face and use a pencil i can do it almost effortlessly.
if you ask me to do it digitally and use black and white i can still do it convincingly, but it wont look as good as if i just built up dark values with a pencil.
if you asked me to do it digitally, erase the lines after ive blocked it in, then just "render" with light and shadow... its almost like everything i know just shuts down.
what is my problem here?
its difficult for me to even "study" it because while i can mirror a photo i see to varying degrees of success once it gets to that part where its just colors on colors my mind just locks up.
its annoying.. i can look at my hand and see all of the science of light behind it i just cant do it.... with color.
actually ill do a quick picture on photoshop and ill render it while keeping my lines and post it.
then ill do a version where i erase the lines and try to render it without "lines"
