Soul Searching by WhiskerWing Soul Searching by WhiskerWing
The prize for =LastMorbidRose

This was my favorite (and the last) if this little chunk of uploads. =] I used to hate shading black SOOOO much and now it's my favorite color to do.

Now I just need to master white....

But anyway, the only big failure I have on this one was my attempt to make the wings look metallic and shiny. *sigh* Everything else looks okay, and the supposed-to-be-shine isn't too distracting, so I still like it best.

I hope you like it, Morbid! :heart:

But on DA, people generally call me Whisker. =]

LOL *tacklehugs* Thank you!! Black shading is fun, and only requires three colored pencils. (for now. Once I start getting brave enough to add actual lighting, that'll change, I'm sure)

:D :glomp: Black is the color I usually have the worst time coloring in, hence why there aren't any drawings around of my character Raveth, lol.. but when it is done right, it certainly does look pretty, I find it kind of funny, I rarely have many probs coloring in a white char, but I can't color in black for the life of me, and you can do black but not sure about your white {Although I do love the white you did on another character}

Your Violet Smile and Evil Grin were two that I've seen that I do really like the shading on..
Actually shading white really isnt that complicated, as I mentioned in my other comment post my char is detailed with light blues, more or less, that the best way to shade a white char, is use mostly light blue then gray blue, and where you want the darkest shadows use grey... When I get my char sheet done for DreamDancer it should give you more of an idea of what I mean by that...
I honestly think you will have a lot of fun working with DreamDancer too... she has become one of my top two fav chars, n the one I find myself sketching the most, she is very soothing to me, so if I'm having a hard time sleeping, or if I get woken up by nightmares, or I'm just too over-stressed I sketch her n I feel better, shes more or less the physical being of my inner peace :)

Ooooh, I will SO try that technique the next time I do white. Which is soon, as I've got one inked and ready to go. Thank you soooo much!

When I do black I use four colors -- white, 70% cool gray, and then either 80 or 90 (whatever the next darkest one is), and black. the 70 and 90 are used for the bulk of the coloring, and then the black is for darkdark shadows and the white is for shiny bright highlights.

I'm looking forward to drawing Dreamdancer! :heart:

Well you'll get plenty of practice with my char as soon as I get time to finish up her char sheet, she is about 99.9% white, lol... ;P

XD -- I LOOOOVE the look of white characters. They're my favorites.

Now if only I could get the blasted things shaded properly.

Maybe I'll cheat and get colored paper. XD

haha, well she shouldnt be TOO hard I wouldnt think, part of her character design is that all her little details and such are usually light blue, so just some light blue shadows with the black outline should work out just fine for her..
here is a WIP preview for you to get a basic idea of her [link] I'm still working in a couple little details, I don't think it would take me much to get a char sheet put together, its just finding the time to be able to sit down and do it.

And shading intentionally with light blue I can SOOO accomplish. :heart: She looks like a lot of fun, I can't wait till you get the sheet finished. *muffinhugs*
