Face lighting. by moni158 Face lighting. by moni158
Face lighting tips due to common request. >.<

Well this is obviously limited to anime and lighting really depends on the shape of someones face. the guy has a more pronounced bridge while the girl doesn't and it causes less of a shadow ( as seen in the image)

Also another thing to remember is variant light or reflective light ( lighting bouncing of objects, some time transmitting the colour of the object too) if there are a few light sources this can create all kinds of different lighting effects. make sure to experiment and have fun ;)

( the guy is not Ichigo... =.= he is default guy number 1)

Here goes.. How do you make your brush, do softer 'manga' sketch lines? I've fondled with the settings but keep on seeming inept - I'd really like when I draw my scetches, to start thick, and thin in the end like when you draw hair etc
