right lol i see xD (PS. how do you shade in ambient occlusion? I was bored yesterday so i started reading a bunch of tutorials, and a lot of them used ambient occlusion and they had nice effects, so i want to try it, but i keep failing xD sta.sh/04gnmwfkblq what bit am i doing wrong )
I wish I knew it myself I think you should imagine your character as totally flooded with light from every direction, so the shadows are very weak and rare. And you can't use a lineart for it, dark lines will kill it
but if it is flooded from every direction, how do I make it so that there is a definite light source? i feel like an idiot and ummmmm how do i paint it without a lineart? or do you mean like just use a sketch and use that as a like guide rather than proper lines?
I have never liked having the arms as part of the wings, it freaks me out, but that could be a good thing, it is a good deal more intimidating. You have such a gift with dragons, I wish I could siphon off a bit! I think the cartooninst like Treyva was talking about is more coming from a lack of texture more than anything and the hard black lines, but seeing your other work, you know what you are doing!
