Glad it helped :)
Well, this way is a very quick and dirty method and to be honest, if I was being more serious I would more likely separate objects into different layers, especially skin as it shades a lot differently to other colours for some reason.
The single shade/highlight layer is great for quickly laying down shade when borders of objects aren't so important, and yes having less layers to work with is a bonus as well.
With the overlay highlight layer, you can paint different colours for different colour light sources, not just white, which can look nice.
With the shade and highlights on single layers, you can also quickly change the hue to give different lighting effects/tones

Glad you liked it!
I really want to do more timelapse art and tutorials but half the problem is I just don't have the time, and the other half is I don't know what I'm doing :P

I think the logic behind my eye rendering is that I want to get the entire eye shape down first, then I lock the pixels so I don't accidentally paint outside the eye. So I might as well start with the colour that's nearest the edge, which is the darkest. Funny though I've never really thought of the dark colours in the eye as shade, I've just thought of them as different colours, which also probably affects the order I draw them. Traditionally, obviously I start with the lighter colours and get darker, since I can't draw white with a normal ballpoint XD

Smudging is absolutely fantastic, and it's so much faster than trying to paint a gradient by picking colours and overpainting with a transparent brush.

It's funny about backgrounds, they probably take the longest to draw compared to the actual character in the ilustration. but they probably get the least amount of attention when they are looked at by others I think haha

Well I went to another funeral yesterday, and I have another one in 2 weeks to go to. Friends of the family. Funny how that happens sometimes. So I'm still in a bit of a funny mood.

Firstly, interesting idea.
But I have a question for literally every sentence you posted.
I'm curious about why exactly he HAS to become a tormentor? how does he feel about doing it, is he forced to do it? How many other people are tormentors? there's plenty of stupid deaths by people being drunk and stuff, trying to help someone isn't stupid (although that's the womans opinion?). So are figherfighters/police/soldiers there because they die trying to help others?
This is punishing humans that are still alive? so that's like karma? how would it happen? can he materialize stuff out of thin air, or manipulate events to cause a car crash? or make someone get beat up?
Plus this is a preschooler, so like super young? That's a creepy premise for sure.
Also that beautiful woman is a bit of a depressing killjoy, which is neither good nor bad as far as writing goes.

I'll pass on the torture methods XD
although, having my wifi crash when I'm posting a long post, or having my power crash when I haven't saved in the last 2 hours of drawing would be enough to qualify as torture :P

once again, I love the action scene piece you've made. the lighting is fantastic and the hair is fantastic, everything is fantastic. Also the reflections! Must have taken so long to do that piece!

nice workstation. If I could clear my clutter I would post one of mine :P
I've always wanted a glowing mouse and keyboard but never wanted to spend money on it haha

I think it looks great!
A dark background, even just a plain colour or texture, would help to make a contrast with the lighter skin, hair, nails and petals, I think, and make it pop more.

drawing reflective/shiny material is a real pain to get right. I know, because I can't get it right XD
love the face and hair of the new character!
Also loving the sketches of how the water attack works.
I don't remember your previous characters having an outline for the hair though, so is that a bit of a style change? If not, they might be suited to being in an orange/lighter colour instead of being black/dark.

great stuff and you're really keeping the output high!
lol at the pipecleaner reference figure tho
but that's just it - it seriously doesn't matter - if it works for you then it's a good method, no argument.

you've almost consistently added faces to all of these figures, which might be a possible reason why you haven't drawn as many as you expected. drawing faces takes up more time than not drawing faces, after all XD
But I think they look wayyyy cooler with faces. I can totally see them in a manga.
#2334 - is that you? verrrry nice style and proportions, I will steal that style for sure.
you're nearly at the 25% mark, a respectable checkpoint indeed.

(don't do this lol)
I totally did that lol

I didn't properly start trying to improve until college, at school I mostly doodled and drew manga faces.

Because drawing is something we often do as children, it's hard to draw the exact line between drawing as a child or in school, and deliberately drawing manga etc, drawing to get better at art.

@malkavian haha thanks yeah it was kinda fast!
I have a goal of producing a manga, so I can't spend too long on an image, otherwise it will take hours to produce a single manga page. Yes quality has to be sacrificed with this particular style, but I'm hoping with practice that I'll be able to work at an alright quality. With regard to the hands and sketch quality, the sketches were very fast 2/3 minute sketches, not meant for a final piece at all, but I like the sketchy feel of them, so I gave them a sketchy feel colouring. Later I will do them properly. Also, this is a good way to quickly get the feel for what a piece will look like when finished to a high quality.

haha in retrospect it was kinda fast. At that speed, making a mistake or thinking about what colour you want to use, or even sneezing or blowing your nose actually has a huge impact on the final time XD
I am planning to improve the speed of this style to about 5 minutes per piece (whaaaat you insane crazy person!!!!!). I have to make sure the quality isn't too high, like when working with the eyes or hair. It is a sketchy style, after all. And my workflow needs to be perfect with no wasted movements or tool changes. Changing the settings on the tools takes up the most time, which is why working in bulk is so great, you just jump from one piece to the other, using the same settings.

For me, I'll tell you what is killing the kawaiiness - dynamic poses and backgrounds!!!!
Those previous 10 coloured sketches were just standing pose variants. I'm working on having more varied poses, but that only affects new WIPs - I've got old ones already halfway through the system with boring un-dynamic poses. It's a sort of a strange bottleneck, where my improving skill means that the WIPs are now not at the correct level from when I worked on them, and actually need to be worked on again. I think I'll just keep moving forward :P

Yes having a goal helps. And a "manga" goal is indeed varied enough to cover any type of study you can think of.

You'd kill for a progress gif huh?
What if I told you.......... I made a youtube tutorial????

I love the chibi characters!!!
The way you coloured their eyes is really nice.
I like your lineart style, and great shading on the faces :)

I hope to be uploading regularly in the future!
Awesome!! Keep it up!!!

did another set of coloured sketches, only 4 this time, which took 50 minutes. A bit faster than the last set, per image, but still wayyyy too long for my liking XD
I think they went a bit better than the previous set, but again I think I was focused way too hard and added too much quality for this stage. Basically I have to compromise somewhere on the quality, but subconsciously, I suppose I don't want to haha

You may notice the bottom right was my MR mascot entry, I think? By the way, what happened to that contest?

edit: I knew I was forgetting something, I forgot to add blushes on the faces haha

unfortunately I didn't back up this topic so I'm going to have to scrounge around for the old images if I want to fix the photobucket blurryness :/

anywho I know this isn't of much interest to anyone, but I added another GIMP script to my arsenal, so when I click it, it adds all the layers that I use when colouring, in the right places, with the right layer settings and the right name. It'll save a couple of minutes every time I use it, and since I don't often name my layers out of lazyness, I'll now be able to keep a track of where I am a bit better as a bonus :P

So one button now does all this:

every little helps as far as efficiency goes.
onwards and upwards :P
