Part-time work AaAaAa. Lighting and shadows are difficult as hell, and I always seem to miss something. Today, while examining the curvature on my skin (arms etc.) in the mirror, I noticed (and thus remembered) that light (in certain instances) bounces off surfaces at angles, and depending on the angle you are looking at something from, the way it is highlighted will differ. Ended up adding some darker colour to the edges of the left side of the illustration and it looks a lot more solid now. Light is coming in from the front left of the image so it doesn’t make sense to not have some darker colour on the far-left side. Still not sure about facial features though. I’ll definitely need to stylize some aspects of my drawing or else it will take way too long per illustration.
