Here we have a sketch of the rare creature, Afrodicus-Ninjacus. I hope you like it. I will be inking now, any comments are greatly appreciated. I think it will be the best one so far. Remember it's just a sketch right now.

Enjoy!

On top of his head, not big enough? Also Photoshop Cs2 doesn't seem to be registering the pen pressure of my tablet making lines to thick, any help?

afros not big enough, and try restarting photoshop, re-installing the tablet driver, restarting the computer whichever, one of them should work

That doesn't look like an afro, looks more like it's just a head wrap. Have you seen Afro Ninja? Have you seen his Staff Style Picture? That thing is massive. You're completely undermining it there.

So make it bigger and more natural, less smooth. Go it, I'll do that once I figure out why PSCS2 won't make pen pressure work.

Guess what, I'm a moron an instead of saving the layers separately I keep merging them so now I can't go back and make the afro bigger but I will probably scratch that and make a new one later.

Skilled at first I was but then I decided to have him wearing no shoes.

I guess that's true Ashman but you see, when I finish them i like to send the username carrier (if you can call him that) the image I made using his username. I usually do this with a friendly pm and first state the project I have a link to this thread and last but not least the image or it goes somewhere a long the middle, I don't remember but yeah. I'll send it in a minute. I'm pretty proud of it so yeah I shall send it in a bit.

Guess what I just bought and installed? Yep Adobe Photoshop Cs4, it's looking awesome and since I bought I don't need to worry about 30 day trials anymore. I won't be doing anything for now because I'm going to be practicing making hands and feet until I master them this little project will be postponed. Also I'm going to be doing some color studies and shading studies cause you guys know I'm very bad with them but don't worry I'll still make some art to put in here also do you guys want to see the studies or should I just keep them to my self?

Today I couldn't really do much but one thing I did get around to do was the little mushroom but as a sprite. I can't really upload it but I can link it, mine are V1 and V2 The other one is an edit of the V1 to help me understand how to do it properly.

Comments are greatly appreaciated and yes I was inspired by Posca's pixel
poster thread to get back to pixeling.

Also I got around to promoting some hands to study but since I'm using the trace-} study-}put to action metho I couldn't really figure out how to trace them with my sketchbook cause I don't have tracing paper at the moment but if you by any chance have any ideas on how to shine light through the bottom of the paper to make the lines stand out more, that'd be great.

Surely, but are you saying good enough in a good way or a bad way, it just sound like:

It's bad but yeah it's a little good.

I may be wrong but I generally don't like that expression.

Oh no, it's not bad but I just wanted to make sure, anyways it's on the portal with my pet rock I can't believe I didn't upload it up there but it's there so that's always good.
