Do you use any blending tools? I'm always having a hard time creating digital art, whether realistic or this kind of style, since I try to blend in my values with the smudge tool like I see in a lot of tutorial stuff. So I hope you could let me know how it is you make the values look so blended well together! It'd help me SO much! Thanks..
@_@ I may just have to, actually, I was wondering. does this strategy work well on colors like white? I remember trying a similar strategy (not as many values as I normally cel-shade) and the dark shading didn't show up.
"the colors didnt come exactly as visioned in my head, but they rarely do." -.- man this is so awesome that i cant imagine the final state of a drawing of urs where the colors hit the way u want it. xD
Thanks alot for showin' this your process on the pic... which I still love. Lovin' the perspective and such. I'm definitely gonna have to read up more on gradient maps. Still not clickin' with me yet, but I'll know I'll get it.
