Hello, I don’t really like long introductions so let’s get to the point. I want to draw a cute baby dino, and I drew it, but it doesn’t look realistic enough. This image of octopus represents how realistic I want my dino to be. As you can see, my dino looks “empty”, even though I added some shadows and highlightning, while this octopus is a masterpiece.
I then realized that the octopus’ skin is not “one-colored” like my dino’s skin. It has some kind of “texture effect” (if you don’t understand, zoom octopus in).
How can I do the “texture” and what can I add to make it look realistic enough, realistic like octopus? Thank you in advance.
