How to Use Blending Modes to Render from a Flat Drawing
It took me some time but here is my attempt. It really does feel like magic to see a character come together after giving form to a flat drawing, especially when you have to trust both yourself and the process in the beginning stages (when things don't look so great). I will definitely return to keep using these techniques again and again, and the amount of potential seems huge.
An original character design for a friend. Tried to colour with these methods and it was really an eye opener. Would love any feedback. Using Krita, and still trying to find a brush with a soft edge and a hard edge. Also, not sure how to rotate the brush to control the direction of the hard and soft edges. I may be missing something in my setup. I am using a Surface Pro 8, with latest version of Krita. Thanks!
Now I'm wondering if it might be worth it to take a break from this to try Dorian Iten's Shading Course you mentioned and come back after it. My shading is currently only okay at best.
I get so lost and overwhelmed with colouring, more like starting how to colour. This lesson is exactly what I need and I'm excited to go deeper with more advanced stuff, especially when it comes to rendering materials and polishing up. So thank you :D
