post some steps of a sketch, share shading techniques

ok, some asked for this, and i thought this might be a nice idea to start a thread on sketchingtechniques.

There's so many ways to approach an image, some do outlines first then build up a piece form there, others go with grascales first and sculpt it out, others might have their ways how to best and fastest rough out an idea.

I think its very cool to post a sketch, and show 4 (or even more steps) how you built it up. So others might get an idea what they havent done for a long time or not done before.

would be very cool if some of you join this thread and post some steps of a sketch

now here's howo i buiilt up this little sketch, i just was inspired by Sylanya's latest work and remembered having done something simular in aquarell a while back wich i gave away, and thought i reaproach the idea as a sketch. here's 4 steps how i done it


rough blocking, normal paint mode



shadow and light basecolors, soft and hard light paint mode




sharpen contours normal paint mode



final touches: set sharp highlights, colordoge up fx light and there's the final sketch. all painted with a hard round brush on shrinking diameter



hope you enjoyed or join sharing
