It's great to see you coming back, and the new character concept looks great. Good to see that you're still making content, too. Your paintings have always been an inspiration to me, even though I don't generally do painting style coloring.

 :heart: :heart: :heart: Mahlubaby so good to see youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu  :heart: :heart: :heart:
It's always so nice coming back to you beauties. Gonna take a look at the forums tomorrow and see what's new. I've been busy on quite a few things, soooo ... long picture post incoming :D

Glad to see you're still working on stuff Gab! The new character concept looks good, I dig the outfits. He gives off similar vibes to the main character of Darker than Black, Hei, especially with the mask. This makes this design really nostalgic for me since I liked that show when I watched it a while back. Looking forward to more!

Good to see you too! I always forget to boot discord haha, I really should change that. And I missed you streaming T_T just saw the emails later. And yeah Hei was like the character I was aiming for :D Chinese mafia killer, cool headed, smart, dangerous. I'll probably cry about choreography a lot when he's supposed to do kung fu.

So yeah, character concepts. My style has changed so much, so I decided to redraw all of chapter 1. It hurts T__T but it hurts more to see all the flaws in drawing and character and dialogue and everything so I'm reworking from scratch.

We got here one more character concept of a guy who's gonna show his face more often, Darius Kinmont:

And because the original is too wide to show, I'll show some WIP and details:

This was the 2014 version btw:

Then I remade some side characters:

And THEN I got bored and wanted to paint something fun and muscle study and colour and light, and also something I could use for promotion so I made this. And I'm pretty proud of myself rn. Also learned that Fan Art is working better with characters that are already very popular *sigh* and sex, ofc. Ah well he is pretty cool and it was fun making this, so I won't complain XD

I can't believe I'm saying this but if you added a few real hard white highlights on the insect body, it would look more like chitin or slimy, which would make it even nastier. Man this is so evil!!!! How did you even come up with an idea like that lmao detecting a dangerous mind over there ... The lollipops look real good, the skulls look kinda lazy though.

Also finally finished the next character concept. The next one will be a small one cuz he won't be alive for long, and after that, I can start drawing chapter two. I've been procrastrinating that so, so bad and I still feel kinda nervous to get started on it <.< Anyway. Meet Rin, leader of a chinese mafia killer group called the Jiangshi (walking dead)

Hmm I dunno if that'S what makes a pro, y'know. And you're like producing so much more than I did in any time of my life lmao. I struck road blocks that made me stop drawing for years, so I wouldn't worry about that much. There is this thing, if you draw because it gives you something to draw and finish something, I think that's what makes an artist. I mean, it's nice to have feedback, yeah. But every time I finish something that is better than my last piece and I look at it and I'm just so happy and fascinated by the way how I got there, and that's what keeps me driving. There are people who are fascinated by techniques or tools, like me, others are with stories of the past, etc. And still, there will always be days where you don't have any motivation at all. I'd say you're doing pretty well lego. whenever I drop back to the forum and see you're all up and drawing, I get my motivation back  :heart:

lovely water rendering!
and time does indeed go quickly :)
love the flowing of the dress.
might be my colourblind eyes but that text is really hard to read on both @_@

Thank you <3 it's cheated real bad though XD CSP comes with so many incredible brushes that makes everything so much easier. The text is there as a watermark, ye, it'S ok if you can't read it lol. I started using gray text in colour dodge or colour burn so I don't lose too many details and still have some protection on it, since this is a commission I'm even more torough than on my usual pieces.

It looks amazing! I really like the movement of the figures.

Thx! I had quite a hard time getting the movement right this time but found some incredibly beautiful dancing poses I want to draw soooo badly! Now that the kids are back on their feet again and all the birthday parties are over, I hope I can get back to drawing again.

Pretty tight work, they have a chill sci-fi mood. At first, I thought the watermark is part of artwork like hologram text.  I can see people taking your art and using it for their novels covers and stuff. A watermark makes sense.

Chill sci-fi is interesting, now that you mention it. I used colour references of some photographs the commissioner made herself at that beach where it's supposed to be and it was such an interesting violett-ish lighting from the sky and the water.

I drool every time I hear of Clip Studio Paint. It almost tempts me to throw away my one and true bae Paint (or GIMP. I've always been fond of GIMP too)

Ah so you're illustrating something for a friend Gabe? By the way do you write as well? I'd be interested in that.

Also what happened to sexy blood sucking nekomimi comic? Asking for a friend.

yeeeeeeah I used gimp, or tried, at least. Lego, do yourself a favor and get CSP, the pro version is like 50 dollars and worth tenfold. At least get the trial version for a month and see if you feel the difference. I can't say anything about SAI but I can about gimp - while open source free programs can be really cool and blender for example developed incredibly fast because of the big community, but graphic programs don't have that. GIMP was always so late on everything, and if I may say this, good tools might not make good artists but bad tools makes good artists feel bad about themselves.

Yeah I do work with a friend who writes when she can, right now she's out of order because her mother might be dying :-/ Hate that I can't really do much about it or help as much as she would need it. I write myself too, at least I have two stories started (no idea if I will EVER finish one lmao) and there is my manga which has a very, very large background and story. And I wrote one short story for an anthology once but I had to shorten it so it fit the requirement which kinda took away the mood :,D

Bloodsucking nekomimi ... you mean that four-pager? Well tbh, the OC has a background but there ain'T much of a continuous story to her, so the 4 pages are all there will be until I get bored so bad I make more out of it XD Oh but maybe the pages aren't viewable anymore ... I uploaded it on amazon and you can see all of it in the preview though.

very nice! On the soft ball girl I'd say the red reflected light from the ground is a bit too red, the highlight form the sun I like though. Also the warm-cold-colours on the skin, well done :)

thank you! :)
on the ground reflected light, I sorta just winged it.xD the field I had in mind was something like this:

so it's fairly red. I just picked a color that I thought would work.xD I'll keep a better eye next time.:)

Yeah I imagined something like that :D In general, it's real cool, just a bit strong and oversaturated. I found this incredibly useful youtube video on light and colour, that made me understand a lot. If you don't know it already, give it a try, I think it would boost your realism in colouring a lot!

Oh I actually started doing that too with the last few pieces, just sketching and then roughing in the colour to get the mood, and proceeding with the line art later. In a full painting, it kinda also helps me arranging everything nicely. Still need practice on values though.

I love your canine cuties <3 wonder if I can even draw a dog lol

Hey there ^^ Maybe it's gonna be easier to keep up with drawing, if you did more quick sketches or doodles just to keep your hands busy. I did that a lot when I had time sitting in class or the bus :D

Oh really? I just started using Clip Studio Paint and think it's much better for painting than Photoshop (which I used for painting for a long time). But I get that it isn't really beginner friendly and I'd also advice you to better draw on paper to get more comfortable with drawing :) Working digitally is another skillset you can focus on when you got some practice in the basic stuff.

Well you CAN draw with photoshop but in comparison, I feel that it's focussing way more on photo manipulation. I use it now mostly for the finishing steps like colour balance and filters. But yeah you seriously need to know what you want to acomplish or you're just LOST lol
