YEEEEEEE long overdue part 3 of my tutorial! 8DDD

We're nearly at the end guys, just one more part to go! :D

In this part, I explained the mechanisms of texture and backlight.
Add these two special features to your pictures, and they're bound to look much more realsitic! :D

Oh, and poor Hielo. He wasn't so helpful today XD

I hope you enjoy this part! :)

this is pretty thorough and useful... but you can't really use Google as a credit; it's like someone taking one of your pictures and saying 'copyright deviantART'. Just for future reference. :>

Thank you for this tutorial! It was very helpful. But what about color shading? Like, you know when light hits color, the color gets brighter? Do you think you could show us that? It could be a part 4. :XD:

Hmm, I'm not sure I understood what you mean? O:
I'll do my best to show all the details of shading in the fourth part^^

Okay, so you know Dagger's (([link])) black color? Well, you highlight it with blue. I was asking if you could show us to to shade with different colors. How we can figure out how to use certain colors to shade. Do you get what I'm saying now?

Ohh I see now! :)
Yes, I can explain that :D
It actually depends on the surroundings, on where your character is placed.
If, say, you're drawing a scene of a sunny day with a bright blue sky, you may want to colour the shadows of your character blue. That's because the light that reaches your character is reflected by the colour of the sky, and that's blue.
On the contrary, in a lush, green forest, the shadows on your character are green. Don't be afraid to experiment with coloured shadows, they can totally turn around the mood of a picture :D

Aww, poor little Hielo! :huggle:

Anyway, once more, you never cease to impress me! (Sadly, my mom doesn't have any beads like that on her necklaces :ohnoes:) But I really think I see where you're going. The mountain right outside my house is a really good texture model, because there are many... well, textures on it. This is SO useful! I will have to refer to this :D
