i don't have CS..oh well,good tutorial while it lasted for me.heh.

okay u got the tools now lets get it on


never underestimate the power of a digital sketch, it is the thing that will shape ur pen tablet motorical skills...unless u r one of those who have that lcd tablet thingie. now us mortals may have a handicap but it just seems so in the start. u need the doodle to also make ur moves more conntrolled and more fluent, so i would appreciate seing ur doodles pouring in keep it simple and fast, mind the structure

thanks for the tips, i will show you my doodles soon

okay now its time to define some important stuff. how often u wondered why is it that ur picture just doesnt have the realism u aimed for... as if something is missing, u laid the shadows propperly...materials work fine but it s still missing something

that something is called GLOBAL ILLUMINATION
it is a phenomena of the dispersed no direction reflected light that is cast on the object, it is well known in 3d art that illumination creates soft fleshy shadows in the depression areas of the object

  07 July 2005
several more to go now as i said there are deppression areas,and as we know the hardest to make convincingly is human face so i made a lil mapout of depression areas

well now well do directional lights, u see the best realism comes with combining both directional and global light

now some facts, sun is a so called parallel light source. it casts paralel shadows which makes them predictable and possible to calculate. i have learned for myself that there are two best ways to do a shadow study for a person. but remember that sun is a paralel lightso allways set the light soutce and then draw paralel lines on the endpoints, that u should do on simplified versions one way is a free simple croqui or a quick doodle

the other way to approach shadow analysis is to geometrise your motif
