Bump! How would layering or stuff work? As of now I'm pretty lost and so far the digital rendering is so noob I should have really took the time to practice this.

Well im finally considering it done, That took longer than it should have. But im not arguing how it came out, Im a noob with programs. I wouldnt mind Tips on what i should do next time i edit a piece on a program.

HI-RES you'll see all the marker warps and pen etchings when you enlarge it and probably everything else i did.

finally decided to just buy the tablet this piece here is my 1st experience with it. just screwing around with different tools and such. it is still a WIP sucks that i won't have much time to mess with it as much. ive been quite busy recently and shit.. figures when i actually do get the tablet. This piece here is the protagonist to the series i plan to do... (in a bikini.. a friend wanted to see her in a bikini) i just thought i'd add the Chibi version of her as well.)

The bows on the adult one looks a bit off. You were probably trying to do foreshortening with the right (our right) side of the bow, but to me it doesn't look that way, more that it really is uneven. Take this with a grain of salt though as I suck at foreshortening. Happy drawing!

very rough WIP of the new piece... it is to be submitted to the calender contest thing... if finished. Im really not liking the remake of this, like at all... if this somehow gets incompatible i quit.. you can not imagine how upset i am about losing the other piece -__-.

Last WIP, i didnt see it in the Recently edited folder and was about to flip out because i thought this one got corrupted to. i dont know why it wasnt in there but it wasnt corrupted( thank Goodness).Hopefully i can finish it before the the due date, im going to be pretty busy this weekend.. had to rush most of this piece already... i hate being rushed. I just have to put the finishing touches such as the color for the side walk and add some misplaced windows on the buildings and some highlights for the rest of the characters.( except tankman, hes to epic to put any type of light reflection on him ill keep him that contrast ( notice hes the only one looking the other way).

Really? I appreciate that bud. These recent pieces are just me screwing with paint tool SAI, working with more than one piece at a time at the moment.

and this is the last WIP for the night, to me i think its the most promising. im also taking a "Different Approach" with this piece. thats the name of the part where this is to happen in the series and is what ill name the piece. Lol atm it looks like that neon glow stuff or what ever.. it had a commercial for it before. i dont know i dont watch T.V. often if at all. It is probably hard to see what is going on right now, but ill keep you posted.

well i wont have much time this week with the pieces, ill just post up what i've continued with in the passed 2 days. this piece is completely experimental just trying a few things getting used to the tablet and the overwhelming things you can just screw around with in the software. And its pretty fun, i think for now ill mess wiith different technigues and styles just to see what i can come up with.

Random Line work experiment i had to cut out a bunch of the top part and some of the bottom beacuse it was too big for Paint tool SAI, i wanted to see how the linework layer thing worked, and honestly i didnt know how to work with the other tools except the pen so i just compltely made my own lines. It is also a WIP

And i totally effed it up, they now look totally smashed!! I should learn not to screw with things so much. well that's pretty much upsetting. I should have not made the canvas so fiefdom big in the 1st place but ehh whatever it is what it is( shame though).

Traditional piece i plan to turn into semi realistic(well i mean ill put no Bold black lines just a different tone of the normal color.) I didn't know how to put that so it was easier to follow. But yeah I'm Going to try and install the tablet onto my Pc and see where that goes, but if it doesnt work ill just stick to traditional until i am able to get the laptop back.

Hopefully i get it soon, my calendar piece is on there.. i am way behind now.

i apologize if it is too light for you to see.

So i had installed the tablet and stuff to my Slow ass pc, well its not really slow its more like retarded. WIP 2 this took much longer than it would have on my sisters laptop... having to save like every few minutes because photoshop decides when ever it wants to crash... it gets very annoying lol. but here is my semi-realistic(not really just my failed attempt at it) WIP for my main protagonist. Though i do like how it is coming along. i was wondering if it should be night or day i am unsure, comments thoughts and criticism is always welcome.
