Hardly a master of anything, but the secret to conveying volume is to make it a habit to add value to even simple sketches as it helps you visualize the subject in a 3d space, making things like perspective, foreshortening etc. easier and giving even the simplest of doodles more life, thank you for the kind words as always.yay i can see them now :3c
grumpy mew is a whole mood. i am in awe at your uhhh. i dunno, willingness to throw on some colours and shading here and there? idk most of the time i manage flats on a sketch and maybe some post processing before i get sick of it and toss it out to the void on the internet LOL. also adding construction lines for really solid drawings n volumes. i throw in a circle with crosshairs for the head and then just...go. where do you get the patience??
OH YEAH also i dig the lil hatched lines you put on the uhhhh whats the word.......terminal?? the part where the shadow is darkest. i like the hatched lines there. adds a nice texture and volume to it.
were you giving a masterclass on drawing? :0
The demonstrations I did were for a couple of beginner artist friends of mine that wanted to know how I did my 'sort of Didney but not' style expressions.
If you want the 'secret' to my colored sketches, just turn your sketch layer to shade/shine mode and add color underneath.
