Hello there, here is my work for the week. I attempted to correct the cones and did some lighting practice per Marc's advice. Feedback always welcome. Thank you Sascha for the help! Hopefully these are a bit closer. The rat was made using pen tool for 2d character assignment.
I'm not really sure how to start when shading a face. I understand there are planes, and planes get different values based on the light source and their position to it. But I am not sure how to start most of the time. I tried several different ways and was having a lot of problems. I guess I don't have a strategy for tackling it. Feedback with this would be much appreciated. Do you start with a hard or soft brush? Do you build up the values or have a different strategy? How do you block in values?
Thanks for checking this out.
