Normal vs my shading by kawacy Normal vs my shading by kawacy

my shading is nowhere near realistic but i do that on purpose, not aiming to be realistic :)

the normal version isn’t realistic either, it’s just it’s plain and i used to shade that way and the pics weren’t so lively

It's not very easy to do on paint, but it is possible :)
A better free alternative for MS Paint is Medibang Paint, as it comes with layers and effects

i personally dont like realistic stuff because i never see anything as vibrant as art from the mind. My art teachers always says this style of art will get you nowhere in life but look at you kawacy. You can make a living of your amazing art.

Ooooh, now this is really interesting! I'd always thought the normal way of shading looked pretty boring too, but my own experiments have never really resulted in a shading method I really liked. I'll have to give this one a try!

I like to do this with greens in particular because standard green shading tends to make green look extremely drab and gray

The skin shading for Sabrina between "normal" and your style are very subtle. I honestly couldn't see a difference unless I stared hard at it and was purposely trying to see it. However, now that I DO see it, the normal style seems to give her more "life", however seems to be a bit more generic. Your style almost seems like she's more "lifeless", or creepy in fact, however because of that it begins to stand out more than the normal. Your style definitely feels more dynamic. I like it.

What can I take away from this...
Rather than have a realistic shadow, you prefer to have a "longer" one with softer color transitions. You also prefer to lighten darker areas and darken lighter areas, again, to have "longer" softer transitions and to make more detail visible(in dark areas).

Either way, your style's better. I:

that's an interestic challenge to play with the color tones while shading
i like your normal-shade apple it looks so realistic you want to eat it.
the right one can create a really interesting effect to other pictures owo

art is such a chaos of awesomeness *W*
