Line Art to Shadows

Today I will be showing you a comparison of what the process looked like before and after I added shadows to Marvis. I wanted the light source hitting his back but not completely. So the light is hitting him from an upward angle. To show the high contrast from light to dark I played with the opacity of the shadows to create a sense of balance. The hardest part of this stage was correctly drawing the shadows. If I had a shadow in the wrong place it would change the entire piece because you, as the viewer, would be wondering where is the light source coming from. So keeping consistency in this stage is very important.
