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

I know on paper with pen you can do it by quickly moving your pen in the direction of the hair and lifting it up.

And your guy doesn't look like Ichigo except for the hair but a lot of anime/manga guys have wild hair like that.

how do you do your artwork? It is so clear and 3D!! I do artwork, but I draw and if I take a picture it comes out blurred and a mess. Any suggestions? Do you do your stuff online or what?
