LINES AND SHADES CHARACTER DESIGN TECHNIQUES LEARNED FROM ANIMATORS
The latest by toshi, the author of the blockbuster “Bringing Life to Characters” series, is this technique book for improving illustrations that focuses on “line drawings and shadows”.
How can you draw a line to draw a lively character? How do you create a natural picture with a three-dimensional and dynamic feeling by adding shadows? Techniques necessary to enhance the charm of the character you drew are explained carefully with the red pen method.
Beginning with an overview of how to draw lines and shades, we then move to “Part 1 Basics”, where each line and shade will be explained in detail item by item. Furthermore, in “Part 2 Practical Edition”, while introducing various ways of drawing character illustrations, it explains the points of lines and shades more concretely. What is the difference between “a living line and dead line”? What is the shade that expresses not only the three-dimensional effect but also the wrinkles and texture of the clothes? Depending on the character’s emotions and personality, situations and scenes full of expressive techniques are explored to draw “line” and “shadow” separately !!
