After many failed attempts since Friday to try and upload this I decided to just scan this instead. But yeah I finally got an xbox one! I'm so freakin' happy and it looks like Caroline's enjoy this moment more than I am ^^; Seriously love the Advanced Warfare edition =w=

as much as I love your simplistic style, I have to frown on the use of COD background because I simply despise that franchise... almost equally to any yearly released game franchises. I mean, it's hardly innovative for the genre anymore and it's more restrictive than anything else. And beside the point that everyone just buy the game for the multiplayer, I'm not an xbox fan or owner by principle. It's fucking Microsoft... nuff said.... Case and point, I'd get a Wii U for Bayonetta 2 combo if I could afford it.

P.S. I'm a die hard Nintendo fan xD.

Such a shame to let a simple background cloud your judgement. :/ I made the drawing to begin with to celebrate the fact that I got an xbox one. I know CoD has it's problems, but it doesn't change the fact that it's still a fun game and to be honest, the xbox one has been nothing but great to me since I got it. I'm happy I didn't trust anyone that was trashing the console, because to be honest much of it was unwarranted.

Glad you liked the drawing though. Thanks.

Yeay for video games. Dose the XBox One still require internet to function?
That aside, I noticed someone saying your pencil sketches look better than you digital colored works. I feel pencil sketches have their own charm to them, but would you consider using colored pencils or water colored pencils on any more sketches like this one? Caroline looks pretty good this way and eraser marks and other stuff can be cleaned up with small digital touch ups sometimes.
I'm mostly just thinking of additional possibilities. There are plenty of your digital works that probably look better than what could usually be done in colored pencil.

HowSplendid responds:

It only needs internet during its first time set up. After that all disc based games can be played offline.

And thank you. Sadly, I've been told so many time that people like my sketches more than my digital colorings. I still learning how to use digital programs, so it'll be a while before my style finally transfers over to that. I used to use color pencils for color, however I found them very frustrating to use, plus I was told the same by people that my sketches looked better than my color pencil counterparts.

I also tend to have a very hard time coloring over a sketch, because once I mess up, I usually can't fix it. If you guys do want to see more color pencil drawings then I can try my best to bring back whenever I can.

Honesty, I got the PS4. The XBONE is only worth it for Halo. Great sketch btw.

HowSplendid responds:

Guess we can agree to disagree, but other than that thanks! ^^
