Character design study, female, Mei from Kapow Express.

Character design study, female, Mei from Online Manga Kapow Express comics.

Here is some sketch of one of the main characters, Mei. I just decide to take a hyper-realistic take on her and see what she would look like if she were to made in 3D or realist approach. Of course, I cannot put this kind of style into the current Kapow Express Manga. Because it would take forever.

This one took me about two hours or so. The process is very confusing because I forgot to merge some of the steps so... sorry guys. It's unfinished as usual.

Mei, Kapow Express Manga Comics:

figure, art, nurse, body, breasts, cartoon, comics, concept, design, drawing, face, girls, how to, illustration, manga, sexy, sketch

Somebody says "Angry"? :) Dahaca!!!

Values study exercise: How to shade, render, tone, paint values drawing lesson, three cubes exercise part II

Value exercise for artists three cubes.  Values study exercise: How to shade, render, tone, paint values drawing lesson, three cubes exercise part II.

Continue from is part I: How to shade, render, tone, paint values drawing lesson

This is part one of the three cubes exercise. You have now done the one white cube. Here on this post there are one black one, and one a mid gray.

At this stage was to paint each one in isolation, now starting with the mid value, the black cube. Remember, paint the value as how you see it, not what you think you see.
Use

This tool to find the solid value if you are not sure what you are seeing:
(Click to enlarge. Save it then print out on a thick piece of paper.
Then cut them up into 10 pieces also cut off the circle hole to see thru.
Instruction is as in the pic below it.)


But challenge yourself, after a while by just squintting without relying on tool. :)

how to render and see value from the real object and apply it into your painting, illustration and concept design.

Here is Definition of Value as Munsell's Explain it.

Value, or lightness, varies vertically along the color solid, from black (value 0) at the bottom, to white (value 10) at the top. Neutral grays lie along the vertical axis between black and white.
Here is a mid value gray cube
Here is a black cube
After you complete the isolation practice: Now lay them all out together and paint the three cubes in one scene. This should be fun and you will learn that the darker object will see to have more contrast (hint, noticeable highlight so it appear lighter than it actually is.). But the lightest light on dark object is still not as light as the mid value of the white cube. See how you eyes sometimes deceive you?

Here are all three cubes:

TOOLs You'll need: *home made edition :)
And here is a printout of "white cube"
(if you cannot find wooden cube)
Print this out on a thick piece of paper then fold them together you can create a box or cube for your exercise: (click on a bigger version, then right click to save...then print it!)
