Yeah, the mouthpeice on the bassoon usually has some cork showing but I was too lazy to pixel that. Cork would require using two pallettes perhaps. You shade the cork smooth with one pallette, then put specks on it using the other pallette. Get what I'm saying?

And her secret could be as simple as having angel wings, or something It needs not be elaborate...

Okay, since my other contest entry seems to be finishing much faster than I expected, you can expect me to enter this soon. Hopefully tomorrow if I can get the wood shading correct.

Yay! Wood shading it a mixture of dithering and sharp, shiny pallettes. If you want, you can take a copy of my basson. The only real highlights you'll find, sadly, will be on the butt-part... (far right).

Nah, I'm always proud of making my own palettes. I have a good one I just used for a window in the entry I was just talking about Thank you for the offer though!

Wood shading is horrible. I've done it before, but since I'm not used to doing much pixel work this will be a big endeavor.

Wood shading and button shading are equally as hard, especially when you have so many. Have you seen a saxophone? So many buttons, and the guards for the button holes at the bottom and on the bell...usually they have a pattern, and so does the bell.

Would a pillow-shaded look make it look more like metal? I mean, only getting lighter from one side, instead of making it lightest in the middle or whatever?

EWW! Never talk pillow-shade!!!

Um...
find a saxophone pic. i could make a quick-y gold pallette for you, I suppose. Find a saxophone pid and LOOK at the metal. Remember that light bounced. I might one day make some sort of tut on metals and woods...

It's not really pillow-shading. But it's shading from one side of the bell, and getting lighter towards the other side, because of the light source.

For some things, though, it does look realistic to pillow-shade, truthfully...

The shading you are describing is basically what you need to do, but you also need to dither between the shades to give it a smoother look. Theres some examples of dithering in the first couple of pages. I know I used it in this thread's first contest.

Hmm...
my computer does this weird thing, that if I built something in AM3 (it's the program I'm most familiar with, and use it for handdrawn dolls), and then put it in paint, then it gives it a dithered effect. So I could build and shade the body, and then dither it in paint, and then do the buttons. Grr, I hate buttons.
