365 Days to Digital Mastery – Day 52: Black and White Study
Sorry about the quality of yesterday’s post folks. Hopefully that was a blip. I’ve been getting pretty worn down with that particular style, so I think I’ll mix it up a bit. Today’s Procreate project is a black and white study done with the HB pencil tool. I was having some issues with the palm rejection for some reason, so the shading is a bit chunky in places. In general, though, I think it turned out pretty well, and it’s a refreshing change from the Nikko Rull technique that I’ve been using. I still love that method, and I’ll continue it in future, but sometimes you’ve got to mix it up a little.
Also, to give credit where credit is due, this is a study from a photograph on DeviantArt here: http://poivre.deviantart.com/art/octopus-61975083.
