107 - close up by diegoidef 107 - close up by diegoidef
I was asked a couple of times lately about how I do the shading in my drawings, so here is a real size close up of my last work , I think it works fine as an example of my shading and crosshatching technique, and a sample of how my work looks in real size. Hope you like it.

Incredibly beautyful, I adore it, and I have to say, that I prefer this cut to the original (which is wonderful)!

Well, I use Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Intuos4 Medium Tablet, just the standard brushes, usually the hard round brush. My method is still under development, for the moment is a mixture of chaos, trial and error, frustration and a few moments of joy...

I love how your shading is so...directional, especially in the lips. Mine is usually a random mess.

I like the way you bring the more charming qualities of traditional pencil and ink drawings to the digital realm...I do have a question though, do you work on one layer, all in one go, or do you build your drawings up on different layers?

:icondiegoidef:
diegoidef Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2011   Digital Artist
In this case i drew all the lines in one layer, but most of the times I draw the hair in a different layer. I add other layers depending on the colors and textures I use, and a couple of adjustment layers for levels and color balance.

What I love:
- The brilliant uniqueness of your style.
- The way you crosshatch.
- The way you detail everything
- How simple it is, yet magnificent.

What could be better:
- Nothing.

I think I've fallen in love with your style. Bravo, diegoidef. (:

Tengo algunos en venta en una página que se llama fineartamerica.com, pero te cobrarían envío desde EEUU, en algún momento me voy a poner a investigar dónde imprimir buenas reproducciones por acá.
