A banner I made for a contest. The odds are stacked against me, but had to try. I drew humans again...and for the first time....anime.That's awesome! What software do you use I'd love to be able to find some tutorials to start learning this style? Keep it up look forward to seeing more!
You can download the full-res 2000x550 here, so you can see more detail. (keeping on DA right now for contest purposes).
Hey thanks! I mainly use Adobe Flash for my line work using an entry level Wacom Pen and Touch. I then export the PNG in giant resolution and do all coloring, shading, and cleanup in Photoshop. I try to export the line art at least 200-300 DPI to keep everything nice and sharp. After you do all your coloring work, then downsize for distribution (1920x1200 for example), everything crisps up just that much more. :D
http://www.brusheezy.com is also a savior for Photoshop tools.
I will say while Flash is quite beneficial for its line smoothing tool adjustments, it's not perfect. If you can master line art in Photoshop, you can ultimately get an even CLEANER result. I feel Cintiques are more adjusted for that though.
If you want some great drawing tips, check out Draw With Jazza on YouTube. It's very helpful stuff.
For backgrounds, watch as much Bob Ross as you can. :D
