How To Shade Slime Girls by CakeHoarder How To Shade Slime Girls by CakeHoarder
Because I had a few people ask, I thought I should whip something up really quick :3c

I'm not saying this is the proper way to shade them, but if you like how my slimes look, then this is for you!

Also, hooray for Paint!!

Keep in mind when applying highlights, you want to make them round and shiny, like putting light on Jello. Or go with what your slime is made of. This is just for a generic Jello/Water slime.

How would one go about adding a translucent look without hurting the colors?

CakeHoarder Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hmm, it would be good to use darker colours, and lower the opacity of the layers underneath.

I could try that, keep the same layer type? Any layers behind set to multiply could work too but I have no clue if that will make it too dark.

if 'multiply' makes them too dark, you could just turn the opacity down a bit on the layers that look too dark. (as I said before) :3 You'll have to experiment to see what works for you! And multiply is great for making something look wet, or for shading, but as far as a slime, it would have problems looking translucent rather than just darkening.

Thank you very much for sharing this and inspiring me to give a slime girl a try!  Still a work in progress, but figured I'd share anyhow considering bluestonearcher.deviantart.com… trying to figure out where the thickest part of tentacles apparently is harder than I originally thought, though! haha

Super awesome. I don't draw often, but I really wanna try this technique! Plus, you have such a cute 'model'. ^_^ I think I understand what you did just by looking at your illustrations, though of course I'll have to get hands-on.
