Developing values

Dan Lewis, Licensed to About.com, Inc.
Continue working around the entire sketch comparing values (lights and darks) with neighboring shapes. At this point, it’s entirely up to you how much you want to work on details and what kind of a finished look you want to go for. Use a kneaded eraser to help pull subtle lights out from your shadows. Look for reflected lights and if things aren’t quite looking right, double check with another good squint of your eyes. Often times, when we get into the detail work, we fail to see the whole picture and our values can get a little off.
