Hello to all!:iconsparklingpinkloveplz:

I think this is basic knowledge very useful for digital artists, so I decided to share this great suggestions a sage deviant did.

Shading digitally can be confusing and difficult for some so I will give you some pointers as to how it is usually done professionally. You do not have to shade these ways as many people don't for personal choices, however if you are considering a job in an arts field it is highly recommended you understand these methods of digital shading.

Shading is all about the colour you use to shade with. Some people use a solid black to shade, while others use a darker shade of the base colour. Both of these methods are usually not a very good idea and often looked down on in professional art fields. This is because by using a solid black or darker shade of your base colour, will result in a loss of depth, vibrancy, interest and destroy the colours you have already used. This can be shown well with yellow; by putting a solid black shade on yellow, it will turn into a yucky brown/green colour, the same goes for shading with a darker shade of yellow.

So what should you use instead? Well its a lot more simple than you might think. Shading is most recommended to be done with a colour after or before your base on the colour wheel. For example; shading with purple over a blue. This will give your artwork an incredible amount of depth and a beautiful finish. If you are lost with what colour to use to shade, a very dark blue is often your safest colour unless working with yellow, orange works best for shading on yellow.
Here are some tutorials that will explain this better, more simply and in more depth:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HQ7yu…

However, using a darker shade of the same color isn't always a bad choice and should be considered especially if the light source is a neutral color (white) and you don't want unrealistic or fantasy-like shading. (Many thanks to CTTFOW)

I'm currently applying this method and the shading looks deeper and richer than my older drawings look, I strongly recommend it. I suppose you all have noticed that shading with black is not a good idea, the drawing usually looks "dirty" or "corrupted"; me, I used to shade with a darker shade of the base color, and the shaded area looked "poor" compared to the effect of shading with a color after or before.

Here an example of my improvement:
AFTER
Lub and Mina by Shesvii
NOW

Irina Bilyk by Shesvii

As you see, shading is deeper and more vibrant in the second file, which in fact has a higher quality. I encourage you to shade this way if you don't do it.

Of course you can do the same with lighting! For example, use yellow to draw the lighting over orange color and you'll see how better it looks.

Hope it helps!
