Can't color an artwork without'em. Well...I CAN, but I use them pretty much 90% of the time....but recently I've been in a Cell-shading mode for some reason D:

ugh.. I can't stand dodge and burn. >< I find 80% of the time it just makes the image look bad mainly because the burn tool doesn't give natural shadows. If you just paint shadows and highlights yourself, it'll look a lot more natural. ^^''

Used to use them like some crazy phycopath. Now that I've experimented with different coloring methods I found that Multiply and Color Dodge I have more control over, and all the other blending modes for that matter.

Dodge= for the occasional highlight (unless I'm making something glowing exposure is never above 40 (exposure is on 80 for glowing)

Burn = Should do as it's name suggests.

Naw. I find them really hard to control; used to use them a bit (like 2 years ago) but now I pick my own colours.

Ever since I discovered the "multiply" and "screen" layers, I've never used the dodge/burn tools.

I hate the burn tool so much -_-' For me, it always ruins my pictures. I don't use the dodge tool very often either, but as long as you don't overdo it, it usually makes a picture look nicer =)

I tend to use dodge and burn only on hair parts. That's probably the only time. Other times I find the right shade for my cell shading. :)

Yeeees.... I use the dodge and burn tools all the time, so much to the point I get addicted to using it. *Tries not to over do it though* I'm sure I wouldn't use them AS much if I had the aid of a tablet or something, but I'm still a huge D/B user. ^^;

I don't use the dodge/burn tool simply because it is such a pain to get the hang of, and it's messy business.

i /very/ rarely use the dodge tool. ( and i never touch the burn ) the only time when using the dodge tool is maybe when i'm doing something shiney. o.O not an object, but like, a shiney picture ^.^;; which i don't tend to do. and even if i do, i tend to scrap it because i can't do shiney D :

dodge is nice. But I try to not over use it lol! That would really ruin the picture. The dodge tool really makes a nice touch up to a person's art piece. (stay away from the burn tool! )

Dodge tool to add highlights to the hair and to make the eyes shine a bit. I use burn... but not a lot... I add it to the ends of the hair very lightly. Yup. Hair and eyes are the only two areas I use it in - but I try not to overdo it too much.. but the hair and eyes turn out ultra shiney anyways!

... do I pick yes?! *picks yes*
WTFWTF. I suck.

Personally I HATE the stupid dodge and burn tools.

Because well, it's like cheating; instead of choosing which colour to use for a highlight or shadow, those tools do it for you. >_<;;

Sadly though, I use it sometimes because I am a hypocrite. But only the Dodge tool. Only when the exposure is like, under 30 percent. And only if it's for touch ups, like if I feel the hair needs to have some highlights, or if I want an unnoticeable shine on the clothing.

Or else I feel guilty. 8D

Sometimes.. but generally just when I'm shading and find that there's not enough contrast (and even then I clean it up some with a normal brush). But, since usually with dodge and burn you can see the brush marks and it's overly obvious that's what you've used.. I'm fairly turned off by it.

Dodge and Burn tool are cool tools; specially Dodge tool.

I prefer to use colours to shade/dodge my piccu, but certain areas are a must with them; aka hair, gems, really shiny things.
