um...no. if the paper wasn't white (which I am willing to bet you it is here) then yeah that might work to create the effect you see here, but look at his gallery, no amount of white pencil or paint could make the eyes be as white as they are with the rest of the page being cast in a shadow, the paint would literally have to glow to overcome the shadow. He is obviously using a photo editing software to lower the contrast of the overall photo then painting the white into the eyes.
Perhaps, but I have used darker paper before and added white for that specific purpose before. Not all paper is white, there are a variety of shades. Just the day before yesterday I almost bought some grey sketch paper. Than again, you could be right and it COULD be photoshop, I'm just saying that isn't the only option.
It's clearly not a traditionally drawn picture, and a rather banal series of heavily digitally retouches sketches, that seem over and over get categorized under 'Traditional Art'.
Problem is a mistake he/she is making and the questions it raises: 'OMG, BUT HOW does he do that?' Anwser: He simply DOES NOT. If an amateur/ beginning artist cannot see it through, well there are people who can and will point it out.
it's not that people don't know that it's edited and not traditional in this sense anymore. it's more because it's in the wrong category here. everybody would be suprised too, if i would put some manipulation in the photo-category on dA.
You have entirely missed the point. *sighs* I didn't say that I didn't like seeing these, reread my comment: problem isn't liking/wanting/appreciating, I don't mind the sketches. Mistake is a mistake, if it can be corrected, it definitely should be. Yes, it seems "people just have to be right". Why else are you defending your opinion here and now again? Hehehe You could have just ignored my comment. And you need to run some check on your cruelty values, being technically objective isn't cruel. Just as saying you got something green on your teeth to a person that just had a salad. Unless you rather have them run around like that to ridicule them selves.
So? This is something that you can fix, quite easily, unlike a film genre.
Would people stop saying "if you don't like it don't look at it"? That's literally like saying no one cares about your opinion if it isn't the most popular one, shut the fuck up and never comment anything negative again. Please get a reality check and realize everyone has an opinion in the world, and you probably aren't going to agree with a lot of them. Just get used to it now and it'll help you in the long run ?? lol
I still don't get who the hell is being "cruel" they're literally just stating facts I've re-read these comments like 3 times already and I can't find how it's cruel
Yeah...he's been getting away with it for months, no one seems to care that it's heavily photoshopped to look like its glowing; and a whole pile of people don't realise and think he's some traditional art wizard.
