I got a question

Postby palmtree » Sat Aug 07, 2010 1:55 pm

hey it's palmtree again

Ya I know I have way to many questions for all of you and I have another but when you have no one to turn to I need to ask the people I do have access to. so here is my question. most of the charactors in the comic I am writing are all black however when charactors are all black you can't get details like eyes mussles ect. to show esspelly with my coloring ability so I am asking with an all black charactor how do you get the details in as well. I have been looking at pictures and videos of venom and carnage from spider and and that is whatg I want but I can't seem to get my charactors the way I want as you can see from my shadow wing picture I have a wayt to go any suggestions

Basically, paint it as if it's a very dark gray. Nothing in nature is truly black. Also things in nature don't absorb all light either. It'll reflect a lot of the surrounding colors. If it's shiny it'll reflect a lot, but if it's not shiny it'll still diffuse a fair amount of the natural light.
