Meushi Ref Softshade by Matsu-sensei Meushi Ref Softshade by Matsu-sensei
Download for the resolution I did the lineart at.

So this image is a good Meushi Mattie ref, but also my experimenting with using a thinner tool for lining, as well as an attempt at soft shading. For the soft shading, I'm on the fence about the hair highlights and general effect. Like, I feel I could have done it better, since to me it sorta feels like I just rounded off the cel-shade edges. It might be that there's a lot of base-color space (like the boots); I'll have to try a much larger shading range.

But ah well. I still like how this came out. :)

I think how much base-color space there is and such is a personal preference. The moment that you feather or blur the edge of shading makes is soft shading in my opinion.

You know, if she cut the backs out of her shirt pockets, she could have a little more privacy when...."draining"

Well it's a good drawing still, nice lineart.

Only thing that bugs me is the super huge boobs.
Must be kinda difficult getting around in cramped places. :P

All right, I'm gonna try to give constructive criticism instead of just shouting "omg best thing you've evah made", otherwise I'm just some random fanboy.
The highlights, like you've said, look sort of odd when softened, Aea suggested creating a bigger contrast, make em whiter, I'm no artist but it's best solution I (well, more like Aea) can think of at the moment, they still look good but they're coming dangerously close to looking like a seperate color in the hair instead of highlights.
Also, although the soft shades on the breasts and the hair were wonderfully done, it looks odd here and there on the rest of the body, once more "like you said" using a bigger range on those parts would probably solve that.

It's still one of your best pieces yet though.


Ummmmmm, how did I do?

Yeah, I'm happy most with the hair and skin shades, and I like the white shirt too, but I feel everything else has a lot of potential I missed with to help accent form and depth. I think it's because the skirt and boots both have a big part all in shadow, so I could have shade within that shade.

Do you use a certain tool to soften the shading?

A sort of mix of [link] and watercolor tool.

A lot of people uses a mix of cel-shading with soft shading. If you paint with a larger shading range you will feel like doing gradients for shades. Next time try to paint with a second colour the most dark parts of the drawing. You will gain in depth.

Anyway this pic has nice shadings. Just experiment with the next pic you draw.

Yeah, it's white. But a lot of people have mentioned that now, and I see it as odd now, so it's edited to blend with her hair and flesh color better.
