I believe I did issue a general warning that I was going to do some experimenting with tone. I may have mentioned that it would likely result in some very bizarre sketches because I just wanted to play around with it a bit? Well, this here is pretty much what I was talking about. Today I just picked out a photo I liked from Something To Draw and then played around with the shadows and highlights. The reference photo I used was submitted by Katia Popovych.
I didn’t really know what I was doing with this one at all. I really was just messing around and I’m not quite sure how I feel about the end result. Most of all it just looks weird. I think I definitely want to play around with shadows and tone a bit more though. I’ve been paying attention to them a lot in TV shows lately and I find them absolutely fascinating. I still have a long way to go but I’d really like to learn and understand a bit more about how they work. This may not be much, but it’s a start.
