>>5228901>is his work here pencil, or charcoal? is something similar achievable in ink?
Looks like pencil, and yes.>but what do i need to do to get there?
just draw>thanks anon. do you think i should work with a value chart next to me when doing lack and white?
just use three tones that you preselect
white, black, and maybe a 40% gray
mid-tone is the average distance from the camera, the other two tones are light and dark, those are the ones you paint, do a fill for the mid-tone
light is closest to camera
dark is furthest
if you want something to have depth, then make it recede from the camera into darkness, raise things with light tones but use sparingly so you can express specularity>what do i need to train to see accurately?
drills and exercises aka "squint" -- either with or without software
also try two tone images like pic related
line weight and contour lines can create ANY image
