wow, if i didnt know better id say it was a picture. yeah, the upper arm could use a bit more spread shading; it now as a big one-tone area. Also; the shoulder looks a bit messy... great work man

So yeah; in all his inability; occluded is trying to say: your piece isnt exactly monochrome as we defined it. Basically either one of the last two pics he posted would be okay; I prefer the first one.

Yeah I prefer the first one too. You can post it, but It will be better for me if you just put my signature on the 500x500 PNG file before posting. Thanks! :)

the black is just background so I can see where the drawing is. As previously stated that was a Work in Progress.

That's not monochrome, not by the collabs definition, and exactly why ash pointed out using the black even to see what you were doing was a bad idea.
You have tons of reds, pinks, maroons, and even greys in there.
Fix'd

I used only one base color, dark red, the black was on a different layer than the rest so it didn't have any effect on the drawing, and I only used one base color and only slid the colors up from said base so unless when they blended into another base color I followed the rules. but Whatever I'm not gonna argue it. I'll just submit your fixed one.

I don't want you to think I'm picking on you. But ask anyone I'm kinda a dick about the rules. And obsessive when it comes to making someone understand. So instead of just letting it go like any rational human would I'm gonna explain what you did wrong.

If you use those monochrome sliders. And pick a darker color. Then as you slide the picker up... until you get to the halfway point you aren't adding white you're only removing black. Get it?

I see where you are coming from, but you need something clarified, obviesly.

I don't use all of the hightec arty programmes, but I am assuming you are using photoshop. Not all wonderful pieces of artwork are created in PS, and therefore don't have the monochrome 'slider' you are talking about. I am just saying that we don't all have the time to be as picky as you, and secondly, are you even the creator of this thread? Ehem

Thanks for the rant, =D

Ehem.
He is being the helpful one here. He has been helping since the very beginning and has every right to try and help you learn.
That tutorial can be used in MSPaint too. Check pages 4-6 of this thread to see them all. He isn't being picky, he is trying to help you.
Stop being so ignorant.

Thanks for the waste of time, >:(

Occluded did help, and it was directed at me. And I know you're not picking on me by the way.
thanks for showing me the monochrome slider, I did the way you showed us not to do.

Actually, Nae and I are dicks about the rules, Occluded is a tool (of the latex variety)

And obsessive when it comes to making someone understand.

That he is

Actually I think you are the one who needs having stuff clarified.

I don't use all of the hightec arty programmes, but I am assuming you are using photoshop. Not all wonderful pieces of artwork are created in PS, and therefore don't have the monochrome 'slider' you are talking about.

Occluded has made various different tutorials on how to make your pic monochrome. Some are specific to photoshop, some are broader. Im pretty sure most art programs have these sliders in some variety. Even if you dont have those sliders; Occluded is using them to explainwhat we mean by monochrome. You dont have to use those sliders to make it monochrome.

I am just saying that we don't all have the time to be as picky as you,

Luckily though, Occluded does have that time, time which is used to keep poeple that do not follow the rules OUT of this collab.

and secondly, are you even the creator of this thread? Ehem

Awh If you had read through this thread youd have know that Occlude has been added to the collab organization. I dont expect you to read every post in a multi-page thread, but if you dont do that, dont think you know what you are talking about.

A good, ol' fashioned schooling is always fun to witness. Why is it that people who don't use photoshop think that people who do are pretentious? I've never seen anybody use photoshop and then act like they're better than anyone else because of it, but people who use MS Paint or refuse to try digital art because it's not "real" always seem to think they do.
----
Legolass, what program are you working in? Is... is that Paint? It looks a bit like it, because of the quality in some areas. It looks AMAZING. I thought it was pencil or charcoal until I took a closer look.

God, I feel weird posting here, since I kind of crapped out on this collab. Sorry.

I think it's because when you help someone helps them they take it as an insult because they think that they're the best artist in the world.

im currently using ms paint on my laptop with a mouse... iv used it for years and years so i know all the short cuts *stupid new ms paint changing everything*...

i work in sections like i do when im painting models... so first of all i do a rough outline of where i want things to be... for this example im using a detailed reference so its a challenge for me. then i spray canned the background, i dont really know if the colours im using are mono toned but im sure the lovely JQB will filter it for me again :3... i use a combo of the curvy line tool, flood fill, and the pencil tool to do most areas while im zoomed with a cropped picture from the reference to make sure im getting it as close as possible, then lots of clicking with the pencil as i mash the tones together to make it less blocky... either that or a bit of spray can will work... with the hair at the moment its the curvy line tool and a bit of pencil now and again just to get the tones right :P...
