I use Wacom Intuos4
I pick very strong color and use lowered opacity (probably 50~80%) on a pencil when doing shadows/lightning over the flat colors. I paint many times over with that low opacity pencil in different places (also change the strenght of opacity and color for different kind of results) so it starts to look like having many shades in it.
I’m bad at explaining the things I do, especially when too lazy to provide pictures, so hopefully that was comprehensible enough answer.
Aaa what a sweet person you are, you don’t know how extremely happy it makes me to hear people liking my ocs. His name is actually Deus but I think Mr Tentacle is pretty cute nickname for him too ahah. Yeah, I definitely wanna draw more of him and I will whenever I get time! Thanks again!
It’s been fun revamping and drawing again these two OCs of mine from this post.
Not sure why I did a hideous repeating pattern of a chubby joltik but what is done is done. Yes, you can use that frightening thing if you ever dare.
I searched through the WIP folder I had done during 2013 and these are some of the works I started but never finished the way I wanted. Dunno, I might continue working on some of these.
