Alright, another one of these done >8D I was depressed that when i started shading this one, I accidentally sliced through it with an x-acto knife so I had to start over. It didn't take long though. The people in Ustream got to watch all of this one as well and we had fun even though i had to bbl to go eat any whatnot.

it's a little rotated in the wrong direction but oh well. Things i learned:

-dont try to cut out antennas.
-shading green with gray is nice
-put patterns on before you start shading. it makes them fade out in the shadow and it's lovely
-dont randomly cut through your picture with knives.
-cutting a little bit outside your lines is better than trying to cut on them exactly.


well that's it.

Haha. Well at this point, i do these different pretty much every time. Sometimes I use ballpoint pen, sometimes I use white gouache as well. It just depends. It's been about a year since i've made one, so I'll need to make another before attempting a tutorial ;D i'll put it on my to-do's though

It's pretty much like watecolors except their opaque :D So you could paint in white on black if you wanted to, but they pretty much behave just like watercolors. Hey are you busy indigo? c: I'm thinking of streaming.

I love everything about this one. The color contrasts, it looks just right on the character, and the character is so darn adorable!
