Nooooo. XD; Oh well, at least I got threw a whole page without someone mentioning Sutio Ratio~ ;-; Regardless, thank you.
Links would be easier on me for sure, but as someone who enjoys strolling threw art threads myself, (unless it's just 1 or 2 pieces) I don't really have the patience to go threw every picture and find myself just randomly clicking links. I like the convenience of a little preview, seeing something that interests me, then enlarging it to see the deals if I want to. You know, something similar to browsing someones DA gallery. So I've adopted doing so in my own threads. ^ ^
Do you mean The glass cat? =D
Read my last few replys, I explain why I don't use PNG's and why the previews are blurry. (That will hopefully be fixed sometime today, at least some of them) <3 And wowie what a compliment, thanks so much!
Your patience was rewarded! BD; not very good quality, but it gets the job done. ::nods::
Yeah, I have far too many Pokemon I need to finish ATM, but hopefully as I complete new work and post up some more older stuff I can slowly fill up some would-be requests. Two Pidgeys with one stone!
Most of my Pokemon is drawn, an inked by hand, but I do darken the outline and do the shade coloring thing in one of 3 different programs: Photoshop elements, OpenCanvas, and Adobe Illustrator. (Elements is prolly the easiest one to get, 60$ at your local Wal-mart. )
Bulbasaur, oddish, Delcatty, and Contest eevee, and the turtle birthday picture where all done exclusively in Illustrator.
Growlithe, Riolu, Chise, Anthro Hotaru-Neko, Dawn Alaska's Portrait, Hotaru-Neko, Amy Headshot, Kat love Sunny, Remi, and Let it Snow where all drawn in Open Canvas, but all the cel shaded pieces where colored in elements.
Everything else was drawn and inked by hand, and colored in Elements (with the exception of chingling, it was colored in Illustrator. and 911 tribute that was done all within Elements )
As for how people get things to look anime like.. I have no idea.
It just takes a lot of years of practice. I've gotten headshots down pretty well I think but doing full bodys really freaks me out. I can do it some days, and make a total mess of it other days.
I guess the only advice I can give you is to take a look at an atrists work and do some mental deconstruction. I always found it especially useful to look at unfinished work, or doodles. They are usually done very quickly, and provide a striped down/crash course-like look at how an artist sets up their work.
Hope I helped!
