Alright, its been a couple months. I admit, i may have give you way too much- and i apologize. Just send me what you have done, and we can go ahead and start on [[Click to Continue > by QuickRef|your]] next lessons. Im very sorry for the inactivity in your mentoring- thats my fault. Ive had alot of tests and [[Click to Continue > by QuickRef|exams]] ive been having to study for, and i still have to. Ill be active on my phone everyday, so i can still reply and send you lessons. (Cant do joinme's right now, though.) Once thats out of the way, we can proceed with some lessons. For future planning- What exactly do you want to learn next? What are you having trouble on?
Also, i have been asked by another user to mentor them aswell, so if you have any [[Click to Continue > by QuickRef|problems]] with that, let me know, okay? Otherwise, you two will most likely have some joint-lessons together.~☯ Breeze Five Nights at Freddys 22:46, April 16, 2015 (UTC)
Damn, that actually looks great! Good job. I'd blur the shading a tad more, but other than that hes very handsome.
Okay, so i guess we'll start on shading techniques and mottled/flecked cats.
Okay, this is one of the most popular techniques. Basically, you draw your shading on as normal- but instead of blurring it, you'll smudge it with a hard-edged smudge tool on a rate of about 40-50. This gives the cat a more "furry" look if smudged in the right direction, and is less annoying to constantly tweak opposed to blurred shading. It also gives the cat a more, "defined" look, for lack of a better word. Examples of this would be like most of David's, Jayie's, and my own images.
This is a common method used by alot of users. While it can work, its absolutely annoying to tweak/fix. (When done right, it looks amazing.) Most people tend to use the gaussian blur tool, but it usually causes the shading to leak away from the outter edges of the lineart. If your going to blur your shading, i highly recommend using the blur tool located with the rest of your other tools in the Toolbox. Examples of this would be like, Whiteclaw's Starclan image, and Featherwhisker's Starclan image. Both of those were done by blurring.
Best ways to avoid "leaking" shading:
What i usually do is have atleast three layers of shading. One for the base, (usually the darkest), a second thats a but shorter all the way around but still there) (same as the first, but a tad darker) and finally a thin layer around the lineart of the shaded areas. This helps create depth, and also defines the shading quite smoothly.
Tints that go well with certain pelt colors. (Not mandatory- black is acceptable on all colors.)
Keep in mind tinting is and never will be mandatory, so if you prefer not to tint your shading, ignore this bit. This is just for reference if you ever feel the need too.
White - Purple's, Blue's, Cream/orange's, Red's, and black.
Gray - Black, Blue's, Purple's.
Black - Normally only black or a very dark gray will show up.
Brown - Red's, dark Brown's, black.
Ginger - Red's, Brown's, dark Orange's, black.
Cream - Red's, Purple's (surprisingly), black
(if i missed any other important ones, let me know.)
Mottled cats normally have faint, dark markings throughout their fur. They can have up to more than 2 shades of markings, but most of the time its hard to identify.
They can be a tabby, and a solid at times. Realistically, all of them normally have atleast facial stripes present.
These cats have smaller, more defined markings throughout their fur. Most of the time, its darker than the base coat. More commonly, they almost always have some kind of tabby stripe-ing, normally pointed (the face, legs, tail).
For your next assignment, i'd like you to attempt a flecked long-furred cat on the rogue blanks, with a twisted paw. This time, i'd like you to smudge the shading. Color is your choice.
Hey Gia! I haven't been acting a lot recently on this wiki besides charart and my talk page, so I hope I'm not too late. You've been a great mentor til I became a warrior and I don't want to see you leave this wiki. I don't think anybody was trying to annoy you, and I'm pretty sure nobody would like you to leave either. If you see this message, can you please at least reply to it? Thanks, Cheryl You're so Gorgeous ❤ ~ 11:13, April 23, 2015 (UTC)
