I really just needed a nudge in the right direction!
All the times before these last two I had no real clue of what I was doing and was just experimenting and was struggling to figure anything out.
Thanks to this artist here I’ve learned some basics to work and build skill from, really I couldn’t thank them enough for their patience in explaining it to me!
To think that I just spent the past 5 hours working on this is wrecking my brain on a cosmic level.
On the other hand I made it look fluffy as all hell
Oh by the way this is Quickie from Tales of Eternia.(how ironic)
It’s amazing what some pointers can do, seriously.
This cool artist right here took the time to go in-depth about painting for a bit and explained me some of the basics and lo and behold, a little understanding goes a long way! I mean it’s not amazing but it’s damn good improvement over anything else I’ve done before.
More DOodles from the paint chat, it’s kind of over now though
Something poorly done with one layer but I was happy enough with it, I’m not good with shi-painter…
Also context for the little cress was that purplekecleon was drawing Min nearby
It’s an open paint chat sort of thing if you wanna join in just go here! http://ouroporos.dip.jp:8080/entrance_normal.html
Eh, it’s something but next time I shouldn’t do lineart.
Edit: I should mention that I used a different method to paint this one.
I tried looking at this artist’s painting tutorial for ideas on how to progress with this. Because everytime I try to paint I’m terrified of messing it up beyond salvation.
I’m trying to paint again, I’m stunned that this hasn’t been crap so far but now come colors.
I bought a SAI license today and I’m now using SAI 1.2.0!
It has a couple of additions and I tried importing my shit and settings over aaaaaaand all is well, I think I’ll stick with this version from now on! Hell, I wanna try out the Lumi & Shade Layer style, that should be interesting.
This is oddly contrasting to how I felt a few days back but lately I’ve felt really out of place among people and incapable of interaction without making a huge idiot of myself and I haven’t had anything interesting to talk about so I just end up feeling like a lifeless lump.
But anyway who cares I’ll probably get better in the future.

MOVE ASIDE YOSHI, THIS SWEET MOTHERFUCKER CAN SWIM FAST AND YOU CAN PET HIM WITH THE TOUCHSCREEN!
Somehow this took a lot less time than it seemed.
Aside from the sketch, I streamed the whole process of lining, coloring, shading and adding the background in around 1h30m.
I don’t think I’ve ever done something THIS fast.
