    Seems like the forums doesn't want me to actually publish my Pictures, so I'll just do it like this instead. My April artisinal, the Shadow Keep. Edit: I am trying to learn how to do better backgrounds. It's a struggle.
    Just looking at this pic, the old-style Transylvania Dracula music popped in my head.

    Playing with LOVE 2D, even though I swore I would never touch it again.

    I'm trying to create a silly little RPG styled after Arcana for the SNES. A VOID RIFT has opened beneath the CITADEL, pouring forth a horde of MUTANT ABERRATIONS, seemingly controlled by a mysterious organization of HIGH-TECH MAGICIANS who call themselves BLACKBIRDS. CHAIRWOMAN LUNA has tasked the citizens of NEO SPINESREACH to eliminate the threat. Only YOU can stop the BLACKBIRDS! Please excuse the (blatantly stolen) placeholder graphics! I just wanted to get the combat mockup in place.

    Do you mean like constructive critique?

    Well, it's a little scarier than I'm used to @Aren being, but I'd say you rendered him faithfully.

    Oh god. I died a little inside. Thanks, Lin.

    Teani, I absolutely adore your pencil sketches. I think you're really onto something there and, quite honestly, it reminds me of the facial sketches I used to do when I was in High School. I always fondly remembered those attempts before I abandoned them. Keep them up and share them!

    Very visually appealing. I look forward to seeing you get better with each picture. :)

    Made another one, just to see if I could make a man's face. Picked a character for this one at random, and it's just a sketch, not finished.

    Kiyo looks like a badass Father Christmas. Good catch on the mouth scar.
    Some may say we've lost our way, but I believe we've not gone far enough.

    Did a stream for my Facebook crowd. Here it is! I'm drawing someone salvaging beneath Stormcaller Crag.

    I watched it and I just sat there and was like, "How does he know how to add in all those really little, pointless looking bits?" Seriously, I don't think words can describe how impressed I am and continue to be by your drawings and stuff. You've got a real gift.

    Didn't have time to watch the whole thing, but I loved what I saw, @Lin. Wish I was as proficient with digital art. I only have basic Photoshop skills. I'd just like to learn the trick to get the lines immediately "vectorized", if you know what I mean? Maybe that's a feature I don't have. I don't know. Good job though. It looks great!

    He's working in flash, which is why he's got line smoothing and it comes out as a vector.

    Eleanor is correct, I'm using Adobe Flash Professional CS6. I do all of my line/color work in that program, export it to a stupidly high resolution, and perform postwork in Photoshop. To be honest, I only use Flash because its default brush has a really good feel to it. If you want to use another vector drawing program that's actually made for it, Illustrator is a great one.

    I can't see it, Moirean :(

    Don't have a scanner so I took a picture with my phone, sorry. Been playing with prisma colors and drew a face shot of Piper.

    image

    Edit- There we go. I uploaded a scanned version along with the little doodle that I did of Piper in overalls with her natural hair color.

    She meant Prismacolor markers, actually. They're sexy.

    I put markers at first. And then I was like no waaay, that's just too much. Must be pencils, which is still nuts, so I edited it. But dang, markers! How do you get it...not streaky and stuff?

    My expertise with markers mainly consists of doodling on our whiteboard table at D&D or getting goofy off the yummy smelly markers and forgetting to actually color anything with them. >_>

    Prismacolors are awesome because they don't bleed out all over the place. You can almost layer with them, too, which is sweeeet! The best prismacolor markers are the illustration liners. When you line art in most pens, they get mucky and streaky but the illustration pens generally don't. If you like drawing by hand and coloring quickly, I'd recommend looking into them some more!

    So many colors available, too :)
