But remember, in reality, hard shadows happen too, so it's common to find both soft and hard shadows together on the same object. You seem to have grasped this judging by your toothy WIP, but it's a common misconception people seem to have that soft and sharp shading are somehow mutually exclusive.
Your colouring style for the toothy one really reminds me of someone I collaborated with once, but apparently you're not her (different dA). Surprised me a little. Anyway, I think it's a lovely WIP, I hope we'll get to see it finished~
That's true. People do that though so they can feel more "official" to anime. Though anime only cellshades for ease of animation. If it was easier to shade like they do in Visual Novels, they probably would do that.
I'm not a very good cellshader though, like, I get annoyed drawing a picture with pure cellshading, somehow or another I tend to have to make /something/ soft.
This is the best example I have of my "cellshading"
And I'm glad someone likes that wip, cause I genuinely don't XD'' And may I see that persons dA oxo I'm a little honored you misinterpreted me though ^ ^ '' I've been fond of your art for about a year now, I think I first found you on gaia before I knew you had a comic.
And here are some colored headshots of three of my main characters~ =w= I think I'ma try and make most (or all) of them. This is gonna be difficult lol XD
Notice how Kami and Kiki (Kami middle, Kiki right) contrast eachother but Emiko (Left, also she's 'yoko' in above pic) contrast NO ONE XD
Kami's face was a little difficult, he's not normally very "fun" to draw in terms of his face (I have the hardest keeping him consistent) and he only has funny/extreme expressions when he's devious *points to Kamina picture* Angry, or upset. He's not much of a smiler /w/ He also looks like he does not wanna be there with his sister all up on him.
