You know what we're not seeing alot of in this new competition? (and I know I'll probably get arrested for this)

LITTLE GIRLS.

There seem to be an enormous supply of girls just holding guns/swords etc. Some are really great looking but they look like adult women.

K enough of my rant.

I could draw a suare on a pice of paper and get it into a gallery (thats how stupid the real art world is)

Hey, fuck you. Accomplished artists like Pox and Chamber don't need to take tips about what really is from Master Tracer. Besides, most art in galleries is extremely good. Don't cite cliche, stereotyped examples to defend your tracing.


I suck.

Agreed, and their is only a few good ones with little girls.
I don't think this art contest was supposed to be for people to do NSFW pictures though I could be wrong...
What DanPaladin did is kinda what I'm trying to aim for, a little girl with a gargantuan melee weapon.

all made in flash
you can set the thickness of the lines you make with the line tool

yes, but what method do you use to change the thickness gradually like some you have are like sharp on the ends, but thicker in the middle does flash have that yet? or are you just drawing like 2 lines and connecting them at the ends and filling? or is it done with a wacom and the pressure sensitivity option on the brush tool?

Im pretty sure if you put the smoothing to 100 you get that effect.

well what i really mean is this,
notice the red circled part how the stroke changes gradually bigger to smaller much like a brush in photoshop if you turn on the "brush size fade thingy"(which i recreate shown in green)

I wouldn't mind seeing a picvture background as long as it's a photo you have taken. The Character should be very well drawn if you're not going to spend to much time on a background. Just my 2 cents.

You don't get as crisp lines with the pressure sensitive brush tool.

Since I only have like 10 of those, its alright to not use the brush tool. But I did the hair with my brush and graphic tablet.

I'm pretty much aiming for 6-10 with her ageand have her weapon at least twice her size.

I don't think the age of yours really matters considering the size of her but I think you illustrated the concept pretty good.

At s1nt3ch:
You can achieve a similar effect by selecting the lines and then going modify>shape>convert lines to fill, then you can mess around with them to be varing in width.
That's the way they do it on Homestarrunner.com.

A girl is a girl, a woman is a woman. There is an obvious difference between the two...so just keep it in mind. It's not difficult.

Your best bet would be to aim your pen somewhere between the ages of 5-15 years old.

yeah i have seen that way too, i'm just trying to find the fastet way to do it. I myself use overlapping shapes of differend colors, then break them apart and delete the inner one leaving a variable stroke outline, but they should seriously add that as an option in the next version of flash

That would be neat-o to have as a feature but I prefer the way I said, I usually make the character and then with the lines I'll convert them to fill at the end at get read of the round ends.

well in flash 8 you can change the shape of the endcaps, it's in the bottom properties panel when you have a line selected, you can make 'em round or square

I'm old skool and use MX, so stop waving fancy shmancy features in my face...
Actually, that is the only feature in Flash 8 that makes me semi-envious because I do my filters in PhotoShop and Fireworks.

In reality, the legs are usually the same length as the body so they're not really "wrong".

But in cartoon-ish drawings (especially anime), the rule is to typically make the legs longer because it's supposedly more attractive.

i just submitted and after seeing some drawings i must say that some people isnt drawing LITTLE girls, but anywaysss they are still quite artistic.

i dont know how to use photoshop ... x _ x
i used Macromedia MX Professional 2004 , i have a problem when pasing the stuff i draw to jpeg format , since i can only save the file in flash format.

What i do is to copy/paste it to paint :( but it gets a bit disorted and crappy.
any tip or something to help me out?

thanks mindchamber and everyone else for this contestsss.
