WOW! That's crazy good! I love the detailing on the second picture. I can't wait until it's finished!

Afrobit

Thanks.

It's taking a long time since airbrush is basically 'softly layering'.

Afrobit

It's taking weeks due to college and having to find an endless free version of SAI. (Papers, homework, tests, etc.)

I love the dark lines on that last one, what did you use for them?

Also, I agree, organic styles are lovely.

Afrobit
06-22-2011, 11:02 PM
A copic multiliner. Its size is .03. (Got it as a free item because I bought some ciao copics. Amazon can have some great deals. I wish a store nearby would sell them, but the closet is 3 hrs away.)
I tend to use the Sakura brand or the one that is made in Germany. (IDK what it is called.) The copic multiliner, I feel, gives the best feeling when inking due to the way it is designed.

Using the .05 to the .3 range is what I typically use when inking. I use larger sizes when the drawings are bigger. (I need to get some colored ones.)

8D Yay they found my old thread and merged it with this one! Thank-you!

What are you're settings in SAI?
How do you get your lineart so fine and smooth?
What tools do you use?
How big are your files usually?
How much time does it take you to do your stuff?
How'd u get to be so good?

...Or am I not supposed to know? :cat_sigh:

...Or am I not supposed to know? :cat_sigh:
1. I use the pen tool with regular settings. The brush tool is on fine flat with low or high color blend.(This is one thing to change a lot during the process.) Opacity mix low and persistence is high. Water tool has high opacity mix and persistence. Color blend is like the brush tool, and everything else are regular settings. Air brush tool is always low opacity. Key is to switch color opacity and the tools you color with.

2. Super awesome tablet+zoom+steady hand. (I also do another layer and color the lineart.)

3. Stated in #1, but I use others too but not as much as these.

4. This is 4000x3000 with 300 Resolution.

5. Depends on mood and other things. The whole skin coloring, sketching and inking took about an hour and a half. (Inking taking the longest.)

6. Practice and understanding!

@Toast: Gimmie pretty lineart I can color for you. 8D

i've been looking at the pictures of this thread and i can't really see anything to crit and i decided a long time ago that i won't comment on threads here unless i can critique something.

then i go back to the first page of this and look at the comments and looking for critiques from someone for me to learn something but i can't see anyone crit you on any of those arts! it's all praises! nothing but PRAISES!!

Afrobit
08-09-2011, 12:10 AM
Thanks everyone for the comments!

@ram: Looking at art and trying to figure out how they did it is one collected way to learn.

I really hate my scanner. The images come out too sharp and somehow ruins the blending. : | It also can never capture the colors, but that is every scanner. 8D I need to learn how to edit better though!
And during this process of finishing, my glasses broke in half due to one lens suddenly cracking. Although, I have to get new lenses anyways. Many ups and downs came along with this drawing. ;_;

I know what it feels to have a crappy scanner -.-. But now fuck everything, I have a awesome scanner who loves me =3.

It's sad that the texture of the paper is lost and so the blending of some colors, but that happens a lot when you mix traditional with digital )= (they are not good friends).

She seeks revenge against the man who zapped her leg with a lazor. It has given her powers to blind everyone with her ashes.

Hey Mimi, cool stuff as always. The charcoal piece looks nice so far. The first is also quite cool, as the painting is great and you chose rad colors. However, there's some things I've noticed

I'll start with the major thing. As someone who has not seen breaking bad, I do not really understand what's going on. The important thing in an art piece is to make sure you're communicating the meaning well, as you're trying to tell a story. In the piece, I can't see how the different icons correlate with eachother, so the piece in general feels random.

For the coloring, the black splotch towards the bottom kind of takes away from the colors and composition in general. It just seems misplaced and doesn't flow with the rest of the piece and colors. To fix that, you could have left out that whole section and moved the brokentv/bottle/blue rock section up. Or, you could have changed the black to some dark yellow/green so that would have worked with the background at the top, while also moving everything at the bottom closer.

The plane yellow/green background at the top feels empty as well, as theres too much nothingness on the left. Hmm, I can see you tried to fix that a bit with the white, cloudy stuff, though.

Last thing I notice is the dude with the suit. The shading on his clothing and hat are quite a bit shiny for fabric. In fact, they shading/highlighting makes the clothing look almost metallic. I think this could be fixed by simply covering the highlight with the midtone blue, making it appear more natural. Same with Heisenberg's clothing

Cool though mimi :D as you know, I love looking at your art :3
