I used to dodge and burn and it wouldn't even look like shading, I eventually started looking for tutorials, and there's a lot of good ones, out there. Especially if you use SAI (I'm not the best with shading, but at least it's better then dodge and burn)

The other ways are harder, and you are being an idiotic restrictive person.

I don't have photoshop, but I do have gimp. I don't use it a lot, except if I attempt to make a good piece. Which.. doesn't happen a lot. And, I usually use Paint.net, and on there, there is none, so technically... I just do the darker and light shade and blur it. I abuse smudge for shading, but usually not dodge and burn. Maybe dodge, but.. not burn. Again, I just use smudge. But that's when I feel helpless with Paint.net.

I started out using burn and dodge, but recently, I've learned of this wonderful thing called "colored shading" and kids, it works wonders for your art. Also, you can always colorpick your base color and make it darker and lighter for the shading and highlights, respectively. I'm not claiming to be a master of shading, but it's certainly helped my art a bit.

I've seen people complain about dodge-and-burn shading, and I still don't see what's so bad about it. :shrug:
(I don't use it; heck I don't even do my shading on PhotoShop)

I definitely know what you mean. I've seen tutorials for dodge and burn where they take some actually good artwork they have and ruin it with so much... AGH. It makes me sick.

And don't even get me started with pictures that already started out bad...

Really, I think it should ONLY be used for photo editing. Not making a a drawing itself... > _ >

God, you don't even know how much this bothers me. I seem to be the only amateur digital artist who never got stuck in that phase-- I experimented with them for five minutes and asked myself why anyone would ever think it looks good. Of course there are exception, but it's so rare to come across a good picture that solely relies on dodge/burn. x_x;

Thanks for the stamp, man.

It's good if you want things to look metallic or gem like. :D

I admit I'm guilty of doge/burn abuse a few years ago, but I WAS CURED!

I remember hearing all the talk about it, decided to try it myself (im a bit of an expirimentor >_>) and didnt really like the results...But then again, i also used the opacity setting and duplicated layers, derp.

I'm sort of lucky in that I'd never heard of the dodge and burn tool when I first started experimenting with digital art... I just attempted to shade the same way I do with traditional media.

Once I saw how wierd the Dodge and Burn tool in GIMP was, when I first turned it on, and since then I have never ever used it.
Terrible way to shade.

I never use the dodge or burn tools. :O_o: I just use something lighter in color to highlight, or use a layer. ^^;

Yeah, I never used burn or dodge too. Use Lab sliders to choose right color, and just color it. Personally I find to use several tools much harder than using one tool -- brush.

That's not so bad- it's far more subtle than a lot of the dodge and burn shading I've seen!

Awesome, by the way. I haven't seen Fern Gully in years...

The other version with full disclaimer/apology was worse. But yeah I've seen some pretty bad work with that.

One thing I do want to do is an "Abusing shadows/hightlights does not make your photo HDR"-type stamp. I am sure you've seen photos that fit that.

Just an idea...
Not poking fingers or anything.
Maybe someone could come up with a walk through on ways to shade better than using said methods in stamp?
I know nothing of the shadeing-ness but sometimes it helps others learn better if they have a little hand?

I'm sure somebody on here has a good shading tutorial or two. If I have time maybe I'll link them in the description.

When I first discovered openCanvas I only used Dodge and burn, but after getting used to it, I noticed there are other ways to shade.

My old digital art makes me think I was such a newb back then.

We were all beginners once. Unfortunately this is a site that's generally full of blind praise, so most young digital artists aren't even going to realize that there are other, better ways of shading and highlighting...

Yeah

You just really need to slowly improve on your own.

I hate seeing adults who draw like they are in Elementary school on here.
