A lot of the lines still need to be cleaned up and some of them need to be thinned / fattened... and of course the picture isnt done... but so far thats how it's lookin.

I got a new picture for you guys, now that I'm not super busy.

I drew this on Sunday and then uploaded it and digitally enhanced it. I decided to try and add some textures to it. I only started getting used to adding shadows and stuff, but I figured that I wanted to texturixe the fur more than usual.
One thing I notice from this, when I work on the pictures, I work zoomed out. So when I think I'm done and upload stuff, I tend to be pleased. But when I look at them here, I realize just how "sticky out" everything is. For example (and I certainly don't work 'that' far zoomed out), compare my avatar version to the bigger version. This is mostly in regards to shading, I tend to woosh through it, but I figured I would point it out as something I'm working on working on :p

I call it Curious Absol. If you're surprised, Hi I'm altimis, and I like Absol :p

Hand-drawn, computer enhanced.

Hey! I found my AAA, and all.

I drew this yesterday in-between classes. I had six hours and my homework only took five. Then I finished after school for another hour and a half (ish).

I'm working on another picture and Midna is part of it, and when I did the concept/outline (which is what I was supposed to leave it at). I ended up refining it, and doing base colors and refining it more such that I really only needed to shade it so I did. Then I threw some background together so it wasn't plain white and voila!

I have a horrible time leaving things unfinished, and while this isn't "finished" per se, it's finished enough that I can leave it for now.

Midna:

So I updated my Midna picture. Well, it's not a "Midna" picture. It's going to be the background of my laptop, and Midna is part of it. I have half of the characters done now. Who is character number 2?

...

None other than Rainbow Dash!

Spoiler

LINK (not the hero of time one)

Two of my favorite characters. The pranking power is unreal. I still have two more characters to add, and if space permits I'll add one more (for some reason Absol is NOT in this piece, I need to fix that), then I have the background to do. In short I'm roughly 35 to 40 % done the entire piece.

That said, I really proud of how this portion turned out. I'm gonna go back and darken Rainbow Dash's eyes, so they stick out more. And I am either going to add some texture to Rainbow Dash's hair, or remove it from Midna's hair. I'm not sure which yet. I do want to touch up Midna some more, she is more unfinished than RD, but I would just be going over with new linework. I like the different colored lines approach, and I hate how the linework around her hair sticks out (plus one of her fingers is wider than the others and that seriously bugs me).

Unfortunately I won't get to draw for a while. I have a busy five days ahead of me so I'll see where that takes me. Plus, I have to prepare my halloween costume. :D

That's enough from me, enjoy!
Comments & critiques are always welcome.

I think you could experiment more with depth, colors, and lighting. Right now most of your pieces use flat cartoonish colors, and while that isn't inherently a bad thing, it doesn't display a grasp of representative shading or color composition.

I don't have a grasp of shading or color composition :p
and I'm not joking about that :(

Color I have better than shading, but shading is the worst thing just behind hands. I do need to just sit down and practice shading some time, my problem is the lack of time, and what time I do have I want to spend doing a picture, not practice. :p
I had to fight for hours to draw even these pictures. Beyond that I haven't drawn anything for about a month. Between school and two jobs I am a bit lacking in my free time aka drawing practice. But it'll all be worth it soon.

But in short, I am aware, and that's something I'm conscious of and trying to work on. I do appreciate the comment!

I really like the playmat-

The latest one is brilliant.

You don't need to worry about shading if you are going for style.
