+Kyo+ Dir en Grey by MrsTownsend +Kyo+ Dir en Grey by MrsTownsend
My first attempt at drawing Kyo. My scanner ate the whole shading on the skin (-____-) so I had to use the magical powers of Photoshop ._.
I know it doesn't really look like him. Anyways, please don't beat me. It's hard to draw him when he's natural (without make-up and stuff) since he looks like an ordinary japanese boy.
I'm working on another more kyo-ish Kyo portrait...the typical lots-of-make-up-macabre-horror-style.
I hope that'll be better ^^

Anyways, reference: [link]

thanks so much :D
The shinyness on blond hair is pretty easy to make. Just leave all of the highlighted areas white. Then I use a ocher-yellow-ish pencil and draw with it very smooth and softly so you actually don't recognize the colour. At the hairline it's getting stronger. But the most work in getting the hair shiny does photoshop. I always play around with the light, contrast and colours, to make some parts standing out - e.g the hair. With hard light it becomes more shiny and stuff ^^ But the negative point of hard light is, that the skin becomes pretty pale - so you need to change the contrast, midtones and shadows.
sometimes this PS part takes me pretty long until I'm really satisfied with the result :D

Gawd, I'm talking too much. ^^;

Thanks again ^__^

WHAAAA thanks so much for the detailed how-to-get-hair-shiny-thingy! Great advice! I'll try it out now! ^^ :glomp:
Whaa I haven't tried to use photoshop! Maybe I'll try it out? My scanner kills so much shadows when I scan it! *kicks the scanner*

Whaa NOO you're not talking too much! It was really helpfull! :D
Believe me, I can be much worse! And I like people who talk much! ^^
