You are right but I's still experimenting so the more I try the mire options I have when I decide to make my style and all of that. I really like PS CS2 do you by any chance know how much it costs?

Push or the opened hand? Glad you liked it. I'm going back and work on both of those hands, I don't like neither of them.

the arm on the right of the pic, the one that is pushing, the hand looks off, and from the wrist the arm bulges out, or thats what it looks like, hands are a pain to get, this may help

Using the tutorial I came up with this new AbueloDigital, hope you like his hands. Once you check that tutorial out hands become really easy, You just need to break the hand into shapes and you are set.

Should I start Photoshopping it?

I notice you've picked up your own little collab thing you're doing.
For the highlight circles I suggest you turn down the saturation and use a complimentary color to what you want focused on red= green or blue, yellow= purple or blue, etc) at the moment they are very distracting and detract attention away from the art.

I don't know if it was hidden for the sake of posting it, but like on your old kung fu mouse man, it doesn't look like you used a skeleton for him, I strongly suggest you use those to map out your proportions before you start sketching.

Just because I'm not posting doesn't mean I don't view your thread, there isn't much advice to give that hasn't been given already.

Thanks Vero for posting. It is greatly appreaciated. I will do what you said about the circles I too feel it's a little too distracting.

I did in fact use a skeleton for the kun Fu man but it was hidden when I post the preliminary sketch. Thanks for the advice and I will keep everything you said in mind for future characters.

Off to do Afro-Ninja, I'm not really going to do it yet. I still need to finish some commissions but I'll get to it sooner or later.

I got a few extra money and I'm going to buy me a pack of sticker paper so if anyone wants me to do any stickers Request. When I said sticker paper I mean that when I make them I will be able to stick them up and that kind of stuff but I was thinking of selling a few of them in Etsy for like 1$ each or selling packs of them for like 5$ (pack of 6).

Some sticker ideas I will do but won't sell.

Mario Characters in my style
Castle Crashers
A few Alien Hominids

Feel free to suggest anything at all, as long as it doesn't have to so with pornography or anything nude elated suggest it.

If you have some questions tell me.

If you want something for yourself, I can make it and send it to you bia mail.

Sure, I'm a procrastinator and all that but I still get some work done.

Here are some sticker ideas I did yesterday. Today I got the paper so tell me which ones you like the most and I shall stickyfy them also be sure to suggest, critic and just talk.

Damn, I need to do that commission and start doing Afro-ninja before the trial ends.

I thing that the best one for me has to be the mario mushroom in my style, the pipe and the plank throwing the coin upwards.

Hey so here's a new something for anyone and everyone. I hope you like. The top 4 are cut properly and are laminated with laminating paper (the ones you use for books) so they are waterproof. The other 5 are only outlines of stickers I am doing, today I will get a few outlines done and during the HOLY WEEK I will color them.

Also here's a little procrastinator to-do list to remind myself of what I need to do.
- Finish the Play Tease Banner Commission
- Finish the Space Game Art Commission
- Animate Dexide's intro movie sequence
- Design the Castle Crasher Tattoo Haiku asked for
- Finish the rest of the Username Characters

Some of those things have been laying around for a month or two.

Suggestions, Coomments, Ideas are always greatly appreciated.

Not feeling real good about your pot-o-gold there my friend.... it looks like a pot of peas...
perhaps you should have gone with bigger coins?
Other than that looking good. Would like to see some more of the colored though

Yeah I think you're right. I should of had made them bigger but now that they're look like peas should I just color them green? It'd be a nice little joke. Glad you like them Kinseio I'll color a few just for you and thought's on the color ones? Suggestions? Ideas?

I might get a camera and take pictures of them or just scan them separately so you can see them better.

Any suggestions, ideas for stickers?

Alright, lets work from left to right, top to bottom.
Skullman = Not bad, simple but effective
Eye-tongue = Not really sure about this one, it's a little strange
Anchor = This one could use a bit better defined shading
Crasherhead = I guess it's supposed to be a crasher head because that's what the bone says, but the bottom black part says it's just the helmet...
Lucky = Honestly, this looks more like a sack of corn than a pot of gold
Pipe = Colour in the grass, and colour in the pipe hole because at the moment it's just a side profile
Legs = Umm... why are there legs? Also, shading is inconsistent because it's on the fronts of the shoes but nowhere else
Skullhead = Again, simple but effective
Mushroomy = Probably the best of the group

I think the same thing.

Eye-tongue = Not really sure about this one, it's a little strange

I'm probably going to scratch this one because well I don't really like it.

Anchor = This one could use a bit better defined shading

The actual sticker has better shading but the jpeg and my crappy scanner doesn't let you see it.

Crasherhead = I guess it's supposed to be a crasher head because that's what the bone says, but the bottom black part says it's just the helmet...

The thing is that I believe crashers don't have helmets, that's there head. Muahahahaha but yeah it's just a helmet with a bone on it/

Lucky = Honestly, this looks more like a sack of corn than a pot of gold

Yeah I'm not entirely sure about this one but my dad wants it so I may just give it to him and work on a better one.

Pipe = Colour in the grass, and colour in the pipe hole because at the moment it's just a side profile

Again crappy scanner makes the shading of the pipe hole not notisable but I'll try to make it darker so you can see it. I don't think I will color the grass because it would look a little messed up because it's outside the outline.

Legs = Umm... why are there legs? Also, shading is inconsistent because it's on the fronts of the shoes but nowhere else

Actually the pants have shading but again crappy scanner, I'll try to get an image of it to show you.

Skullhead = Again, simple but effective

Sure is.

Mushroomy = Probably the best of the group

Yeah I think it's the best one myself. I will make a few more and stick them around my desk. All inspired from Mario's Mushroo. Mario's so inspiring.

Got a few more stickers finished so I'll show you that as soon as possible, with Holy Week coming I will have a lot of time so I will make some Username characters and finish that commission I have been posponing for so long, I also finished a another tattoo desing for another person (castle crasher related) and it looks really cool so look forward to that. In the mean time comment on thr art on this thread so far and on the stickers.

I only have 8 more days with the PhotoshopCS2 trial, any suggestions or ideas?
