good call. Thank you!
I think making the fire lighter than the candle body will help this thing to be more recognizable. And its outline shall be lighter as well.
it has a painty style which I like , and good AA on the halo. suggestion of a surface under the candle would be nice for a realistic rendering :)
Its in swedish :/ He is a swedish artist, used to paint landscapes and nature but took a liking to studying lighting and open candle flames in the end of his life. Going to look around and see if I can find him again and give you a name at least
why thank you. I drew the piece in an hour and a half in greyscale. Then I literally changed the greys to colors in a minute
also, I'd be interested in that documentary. where can I find it?
Sir, your coloring in this is amazing. Saw this documentary about an old man who had dedicated the last years of his life trying to draw candles and light. They came out very interesting, just like your candle. Great work.
it's a candle, and I'm not sure I understand your question. How long must one practice shading? as long as it takes, I guess. For me, who rarerly ever draws, this took me a couple of years. If you have a desire to be great, just keep practicing, no matter how good you are now. When I first joined this site, I was the worst pixel artist on the whole site. Now, I'm still bad, but I've gotten better because I love pixels :)
Sorry for the question, but what is that? I can't see, what that for a object/person is. x). The shading is nice. Why have you learn so a shading? Is that a profi-shading? Why long must you learn, for this shading?
