I don’t mind if people want to ask how I do stuff. Keep in mind I can only tell you how - I - do it and I may be WAY off, lol. The internet is loaded with tutorials so look around and you may find someone way more qualified to teach. Those cats are like Dumbledore and Snape.. I’m more like Hagrid.
((Also, photos! They’re everywhere. If you don’t have boobs or can’t get a friend to model theirs, thankfully the internet if loaded with naked people. Draw from life!))
ANYWAY! Boob shadows, eh? Well let’s see.. First thing is first, LAYERS. You have them, use them. Making a layer at the tippy top of you stack with big bright garish colored arrows reminding you where the light is coming from is super helpful. When you’re done you can chuck it in the garbage, no one is the wiser and you look brilliant. Smoke and mirrors.
I wasn’t sure how large or small the breasts are in the picture you’re working on so I went with bigguns so it would be easier to see what’s going on. Shading curves is tricky business and lord knows I get it goofed up all the time, but sometimes I find focusing on a highlight helps balance it all out. Dark under, bright over, the illusion of depth and a curve. Smoke and mirrors.
I really hope that helps! If you have any more questions or troubles feel free to ask or hit me up on skype and I’ll see what I can do. Also, thank you for “boob expert” compliments and just for coming to me in general. It’s very flattering.
hello I just wanted to say these are great references for heads but If It’s not to much to ask what would the heads look like from all directions ? see I love your art so I do my best to learn for artist like you
thanks for your time - L
Here’s a basic idea (I know the lines aren’t even. shhh) that I stole from staring a model sheets a lot. I normally use this method if I can’t eyeball where I think the parts of the face should go very well.
