I wish I could draw. I drew the original logo for SonicX: Dark Storm (wish I could show you), but I used it for a template to make the one in Paint.

I've draw some of my characters - mostly the Biodragon - from the stories as well. Gem drew Nazo for me;


It's a wallpaper!

and I love it to bits! She really did him justice. I'm the only person, I think, where my version of Nazo (yes...there is a lot of fanart for him. Only 1 official picture of him exists - he was dropped from SonicX) has a crescent scar on his head.

I have this as my desktop :) She's going to draw his counterpart (Skye, who will debue in Sonic Shift, a new series...Coming around 2011-2012) as well. I can't wait <3

Hah, wow.
We're talking about promotional art pieces and I failed to mention the one in my signature. XD Yeah, I did it a few days ago in a simplistic version of Photoshop that came with my tablet, and for now I love it to bits.

I used to be really terrible at drawing until I got a tablet and practiced with it. Drawing with a mouse just feels... horrible now. XD

As for exporting out of Flash and into Photoshop, its pretty easy. Just publish them as PNG and there you go.

I have a tablet, I suck with it though as I can't make any of my lines remotely smooth. I just use it to sketch and do all my inking/coloring with Photoshop's Pen tool.

I have tried the pen tool so many times and I just can't get used to it at all. After I gave up on it, I just go totally freehand and stick with that. Sure, the outlines will never be as super thin as what you can get with just the pen tool, but to me its alright. As long as you draw super large and scale down, it ends up being just fine.

It doesn't matter what scale I draw on, my lines just end up being ridiculously crappy, looking like fault lines no matter what I do.

Aww, but the image needs a double dose for everyone! Jk, I'll take it down.

Same here. My laptop's screen just seems to bright because whenever I look at my Photoshop art on the living room computer, the colors don't look right. One time I ended up with orange-looking skin. o_O

Yeah, making the drawing uber big then scaling it down is your best bet for nice looking lines with a tablet. Also sketching the line bit by bit rather than make one long line in one stroke looks better. At the end, shading and color helps mask wonky lines. Meh, it takes getting used to.

Oh, and Emma did the banner for my fic in my sig. :D

xDD Me too!

Yeah! I really like the pictures you drew for your story. ^^

And the Dusty one! She looks so cute and baby-like in that picture. xDD

Aw, and art for Scy's story too! I remember that Stormblade drawing. The Snowcrystal one reminds me of the picture that's used in the banner in her sig. xD
