Yep, pretty much. I've actually never used paint (I feel weird critiquing it, considered), so I'm not sure as to how easy/difficult it would be to change those things, but that would be the best way to correct the errors.

Err, it'd actually be kind of hard, seeing as I'm an idiot and cleared my pallet already. Oh well, screenshot time. I've never really messed around with any of the steampunk, mech stuff, and tried it. Im having alot of fun trying to pretend how things would work. I feel like I'm playing with legos.

I agree with Kashi here. Blurring is a common mistake among new digital artists. (We all did it) You should make more solid and refined shades.

looooooooooong faces, but fun stuff, Fifty is right you need to tone down the blurring, texture is good. For a while I blurred EVERYTHING and it took time before I realized it made my stuff look like shit.

Yeah, I did overdue it on the blurring a bit. Does anyone know any good ways to actually paint with photoshop? Like make it to where it looks... I don't know, smoother? whenever I try to do that I always come up with these really obvious lines.

Dont Listen to ash; what you want to do is lower the spacing; that determines how often the brush will be "stamped". Try and experience with it a bit. For smoothest lines set it as low as possible; but that does lower performance (depending on your cpu and stuff)...

J-qb, you just saved me a copy of photoshop. I swear to god I was going to punch my screen. In celebration, a twenty minute portrait. Just messing around with colors. What works and what doesn't.

Plague doctor stuff. I was browsing wikipedia, and one thing led to another, and found this article about the doctors of the plague. Turns out they spread the disease more than cured it, but they still have a cool mask.

Plague doctors look badass if you ask me.

Doodling in photoshop. It would be nice to get some comments or something, but thats just the way it goes i guess. Anyway, I was trying to work on foreshortening a bit, and just doodling.
