"Casting Shadows" Tutorial by ~Ratrien. The suggestor said: "I believe it's very useful, and the simple way in wich it is explained cleared up a lot of things for me.". I often find myself having trouble finding where to place lighting too, and I usually just randomly shade wherever, but this shows that there is indeed a technical side to drawing lighting which I may find myself referring back to! An extremely useful guide! ( Suggested by Daiacos and Featured by Gashu-Monsata )

:D A сега един туториал за криви повърхности :D

Шегувам се, но би било интересно също!

Reply
:iconratrien:
Ratrien Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012  Professional General Artist
Първо трябва 1 за базова преспектива, че дори с тоя туториал разни хора имат проблеми :D после един за структориране на комплексен обект от прости обеми (в преспектива) и чак тогава ще има смисъл да правя за "сенки хвърлени върху криви повърхности"

Много ми се иска да направя една серия от 11 туториала...даже съм ги планирал...ама ще ми отнеме мноо време, а сметките се трупат :D:D:D

Много е ценен този туториал. Успял си с малко думи да обясниш нещата много по-ясно, отколкото разни книги, които съм гледал, с много думи.
Моите настоящи рисунчици нямат никаква перспектива, а ще трябва да започна да вкарвам. Барем се науча до пенсия, че съм решил, като се пенсионирам да стана художник.

Ако поканата ви още важи, ще мина да видя, докъде сте стигнали с играта след 2-3 седмици. Тъкмо може да ми покажеш някой туториал на живо. Сериозно, би било много интересно да видя, как работи ерудиран дигитален художник и аниматор. Ако показваш ;) И аз си взех един Intuos 4 преди 2-3 години, но ме е страх да го докосвам. :D

Тия дни ще се възползвам от туториала и ще пробвам повече перспектива и сенки. Всъщност като си помисля, никога не съм рисувал сенки, дори в единсствената си завършена напълно картина отпреди 20+ години (или бяха две).

I am really happy you found this useful :nuu: please share it with everyone you think may benefit from it as well.

The work in flash wasn't more than 5 hours...but the writing the tutorial itself and testing it out with people (and rewriting it over and over and over to make it as understandable as posible) was a pain in the arse...and took me around an year or so...

I am working on a whole series of these ^^
