Hey folks! Since today’s a scheduled Extra day (I know, how would you tell the difference?) I thought I’d practice a new technique! I’ve been trying to figure out how the hell to do rendered style shading for YEARS now, and everything’s finally just clicked – the culmination of a lot of reading, studying, and this article in particular.

Still got a LOT of practice to go before I’m happy with it, but damn if it isn’t satisfying for a first try at colouring in this way! Now, I’ll probably still stick with the ‘cel-shaded’ look I’ve been using for years, but for covers and print work – maybe even short comic work – I think this will be very useful for.

Hope you enjoy! Have a great weekend, everyone, and I’ll catch you next Friday for the next block of Elf Blood: Lost Pleiad!
