Hello again guys!
Hehe, Playing with my tablet for the first time in years! Anyway...
Looking through messages made me sad, I suddenly realized how many people have left deviant ART, so sad
But the point of this journal (aside from me being incredibly bored) is because I think l'm almost done with one of my images, although I keep making changes! lol A picture of an orca and a ray! I drew it a little while ago (first orca doodle in way too long!) and started editing, not intentionally doing anything any different than usual and as I started decided I wanted to attempt more realistic shading...
So right now I want to say a huge thank you to for that tutorial you did for your Tilikum image, my image is nothing like that (and not very 3D I'm afraid) but I'd never before used the pen tool or different colours to shade and agree, so much better than the dodge and burn tool! So thank you!
But going back to what I was saying, I did the shading and stuff and was fairly happy with it, then used the pen tool again afterwards because I still wasn't 100% happy with the shaping of the nose and stuff, then I suddenly found myself reshaping the whole face and moving bits around! Never before have I done this! My orcas aren't realistic at all, I know their shape is wrong but they're cartoons so it never bothered me...but after playing, the transformation is pretty cool in my opinion! Looks so much better now! I still don't think it's 100% but it's a start! I think my doodles may change after this is complete!
The transformation, been a few lil changes while shading the new bit but I don't wanna show that shaded yet! The jaw isn't so square now and I change the pectoral fin, it's not so round any more!
So what you guys think of the change? Any advice? Anything you think I should change?
