[CR] Guide on how to make The Silhouette and The High Contrast

in #ntopaz2 years ago (edited)


Hello to all the artists of the internet !!! I hope you are having a great time ^ _ ^, every time I think the electric power problem is normalized, POW !!! the power goes out for 4 hours, thankfully this time it happened when I was not working and had not yet turned on my PC XD.

On this occasion my class dealt with what in the opinion of the great artists of the comic and especially the manga, is the most important when creating a character, THE SILHOUETTE is not a joke, this small detail that many illustrators forget or not they take into account when preparing their work, it is what makes a character stand out and be recorded in the memory of the public spectator. Everyone who wants to create and design a character the silhouette of this is the first thing that should be taken into account and this is because when we look at an object, animal or person the first thing we perceive of this is its outline, not for nothing when it is I interviewed the teacher Akira Toriyama (the author and creator of Dragon Ball, Z and Super) about the creation of his work, especially how he did to create such unique and memorable characters, his response was that he concentrated on his silhouette being unique.

The silhouette is simply the outline and main point of identification of a character, so it is vital that it is unique and exclusive, so that it stands out from the other characters, and not be confused with these and remembered by the spectators. For this detail is that we immediately remember characters like Superman, Goku, Pikachu and Mario.

The correct use of the silhouettes is very effective to convey emotions and feelings, especially if it applies well with the scenarios and other objects in the background, as well as being a very versatile and easy-to-use tool.
