Day 3: Jayce by DarkRapier Day 3: Jayce by DarkRapier
Recently, I have suffered from a lack of spare time due to finals. Now that they are over, more time is freed.

I am going to resume the 30 day challenge, but probably, I will only update it every couple of days or so. I take a long time to draw.

I decided to test drive a new coloring style. I think the strongest point in my artwork is the linework. Everything looks more epic when it is uncolored, but as soon as the colors are laid down, I butcher it. This coloring style puts more emphasis on linework. I think I need to study light more. My shading need a lot of work.

This a friend of mine, Jayce. I got permission from him to mention his name. I decided to draw this in a more anime manner since I have to worry less about getting the facial features right.

Edit: Crap. Realized the awkward placement of this right hand.

Edit: The nose is screwed up. The mouth is too far down.

Not to be a ton critical, but the legs are a little too small. That or that hoodie is a little airy.

If you don't mind me making an annoying comment, I would be happy to provide a (possibly) helpful tip on shading. Since you tend to use colored pencils, or other forms of coloring artwork utensils, the trick that I use is to softly fill in the base colors, repeat the step again with more pressure, to bring out the shade, and then begin to darken certain areas with the colors where you want shading. Last you use black. Yes, I see that you do so, but it helps if you don't darken it to where the color is lost in the shaded area. Please note I'm trying not to be annoying or critical. Though, I do see this as a style, but if tips are wanted, I'm happy to have at least noted something.. Great work though!
