Oooo I see. With the AO technique, it renders the sketch like a marquee 3D model...or I guess the idea is sort of like a 2D version of how Disney used the Deep Canvas program in some of their animated movies. Of course, for this you are drawing the "3D model" instead of sculpting, but same idea! 
This helps a lot! Thank you.

It makes perfect sense to do this technique, but for some odd reason as a digital artist, you don't realize you can do this until someone says it lol 
I'm going to try this later!

Ambient Occlusion is something the really helps an image to pop-out in 3D filling in all the areas of a image were no light should be able to get into with black.  Skin creases (like armpit or where fore-arm and biceps meet if someone is bending their arm for example,) folds in the eyes, that type of thing.  Meant to be paired up with your shadows.  This picture is a good illustration on how that works.

Amazing, this is really helpful seeing how softer shadows differentiate from AO. Is there a term for the indirect color reflection you added on the last image? Other than that or like, global illumination? I see this a lot in oil paintings and people often seem to forget about it. It really makes things seem beautiful and come to life.

Hey artspell is this close to the idea of ambient occlusion I get the basic idea from what you said, but I'm not sure if I'm over doing it.

Hey just wondering, is ambient occlusion the same as core shadows? 
Reply
:iconardinaryas:
Ardinaryas Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Hi, 
core shadow is different with AO
AO is more like the shadow between 2 near objects.

Oh! I always wanted to know how this 3D effect works!! What is AO? And how do you mix with shadow? =O 
Reply
:iconardinaryas:
Ardinaryas Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2014  Professional Filmographer
AO is short of Ambient Occlusion. It represent the dark area that created from 2 or more objects that being close to each other. 
I know it's hard to explain it, you can search example in google. 
For the tutorial, you can read it in my blog. So you can mix with shadow :D
hope this helps
