I’m a little confused…I guess I need to find a blend between heavy contrast in shading that I’ve been trying out and the super soft, midtone-heavy way that I used to shade. I agree with the criticisms that everything is starting to blend together, so I’ve been working on that. My base drawings (the contour before the shading) are starting to improve because I’ve been working at it so the overall drawings are looking more realistic. It’s nice to be able to log my improvement like that. There were a few drawings at critique that amazed me, especially a gorgeous drawing of a coffee machine. Those are the drawings I try and study to figure out how they did the range of tones.
