HUGE FILE SIZE :O

HI GUYS RANDOM TUTORIAL OLOL

Anywho, I'm thinking of making a "How to Make Your Art Look Nice" series about the subtle things that make drawings look awesome.

I see lots of people who are struggling with contrast so I hope this tutorial can guide them. This is my understanding on how contrast works in drawing.

Enjoy guys!

But how about if we want our drawing to look soft of calm. Do we also need to use some strong contrast?

Depends on where you want the eyes to go. Though this matter can also under lighting (like diffused lighting for soft lights and little sharp shadows). Just look at other drawings that convey a soft/calm effect

You seriously need to AT THE VERY LEAST credit the art you use in these things; "these are from my inspiration folder" is not an excuse.
