@Nisaren - I know exactly how you feel. I've set CA to my homepage, tabbed with MT, RMRK, and a few others. But every time I check my subscribed threads, I'm actually afraid to check the responses on my own sketchbook. I get priceless advice there, but it's also mixed in with people who just hate anime and aren't actually trying to be helpful. I've decided to keep drawing anime, post it here, and submit anatomy and perspective and stuff on CA. So if you're gonna get a CA account, don't post anime. It'll get struck down pretty quick unless you've got Sutari's skill level or greater.
@Shaman/Synn/Blackmage/etc. - Wasn't that your first post in this thread, though?
@Cyp - Will do. I tried some studies yesterday, but I was distracted by video games. Commencing clothes studies now . . .
@Rio - Hey, your tutorials have gotten better! And they were pretty good to begin with. I confess to only skimming them after reading them all through the first time. Looking them over again is very helpful. Thanks.
And this:Is great advice. OC told me something similar on the old forum, and ever since, my line quality has grown exponentially (apparently. In reality, my lines are pretty bad, but this trick makes them look a lot cleaner).On a side note, you should never color your original work in such a small scale. It is better to start at a large canvas size and later reduce the image file (Image > Image Size/Scale Image) at a later date if you need to.
I know I should be doing some clean stuff, but all I have to show after a weekend of having a fever and four snow days is this crap:
