So i redrew the feet and top head . I outlined it in vector art. I'll be colouring this for a comic page. I had to redraw the feet and head on separate paper and line it up in photoshop.

bigger version here.. working on a colouring tutorial for this too

I also drew this the other night. It was a request from long ago. I think I'll colour this soon too.

Recommendation:

Make another version of that last pic, only instead of having it say "Aaaaaalfac!" make it say "Aaaaaaflac!" and have a goose there. Heck, you could prolly just 'shop that.

I only recommend this because I've got a stupid sense of humor like that sometimes.


ETA: Oh wait, I see what you did there. Missed it the first time around.

I still think my idea's funny though. :p

haha funny! Yeah, I read that her powers of magic come from reciting things backwards. Pretty neat i think haha. Though I think she has to be careful about her spells backfiring on her. :)

Hey Umbro,

Nice work. One suggestion is to spend more time on the line drawing before taking it into PS. I'd suggest once you have the drawings at the stage of linework that your used to using, you stop and consider where you want emphasis. And the hierarchy of forms as they move back in space. Once its pretty clear to you where you want emphasis, and focus, erase, darken, or thicken your line work. Do trial and error experimenting with different types of mark. While these marks are frequently changing, you should also be observant of proportion and not be afraid to drastically alter your drawing. And then, once you are satisfied with this drawing, then move it into Ps for painting. once you do start to paint, use those lines as cues for changing the way the paint is applied. i.e. transparences, color shifts/value shift.

Do you have a tablet? investment, but any artist that works through Ps uses one - or any I know...

These things give the figure more air. and a more atmospheric look. And even if they're in the Anime-ish style, they'll be more believable as "characters in space" - instead of "images of characters."

Hope this helps. a little bit of Drawing 101 ;)

I agree with trackstar. I looked at your sketches and think you should also try to clean them up a little better before painting. Watch you line weight! If you like traditional inking then try using a non print blue pencil, ink over that them scan and paint. If you don't like that then I suggest getting a cheap light box and doing your clean up using that. DON'T TRACE! DRAW! Although you are drawing over your original art remember this is you chance to make it clean and clear of mistakes! Line weight is everything! It sells the drawing. Good Luck! There is tons of video tutorials on you tube to look at. Also watch your proportions and your perspective. Your perspective seems to change alot. Your proportions seem a little too over-exaggerated. Once you have that I think you'll be on the right track. You seem to know PS pretty well. Good luck dude.

thanks, I havent drawn much in over a year and a half. When I stopped I had been drawing for little more than 3 years. Lines have always eluded me, though I have been experimenting lately with my tablet and PS. I'm working on piece with what I know and then I'm doing it over again in a new way, I'm trying not to lean on lines so much anymore but rather tonal variations and shading for closure. I still love using lines, because at heart I want a lot of control. I'm trying digital painting in PS. I'll let you know how it comes out.

Oh and i have two tablets actually. Found a CTE graphire 3 in a Goodwill brand new for 10 bucks a few years back. Works great !
