neonlink said: Is there anyway you could try make a tutorial to show how to achieve blended lines like in your megaman picture? It's a style I want to practice, but don't know where to start! :(

Sure thing! But to tell the truth, I didn’t blend any lines or colors in my Mega Man pic… it was all flat colors! But I’ll try to explain my process as best as I can with a little diagram! :>

Step 1: Since I only had 1 hour to draw my pic, I knew I wouldn’t be able to go about doing my usual method of making a sketch and making nice, clean lineart AND still manage to finish the pic in time. Art challenges with deadlines are good practice because they force you to make split-second decisions, and sometimes you have to sacrifice something in favor for something else to insure you’ll be able to finish the pic in time! And I’m really, really slow! So I blobbed out basic shapes instead.

Step 2: I erase or add onto the blob to make the character’s silhouette shapes.

Step 3: With the silhouette layer locked, I start coloring in some of the details the character has. Since it’s opacity locked, that means I don’t have to be perfect and can freely scribble outside of the lines. AND YOU’D NEVER EVEN KNOW, HEH. Then on a new layer, I draw out the important details, like the face and eyes.

Step 4: Keep going! The face is actually on an entirely new layer, but the colors for the eyes, mouth, and eyebrows are on a layer underneath.

Step 5: Sweet, we’re nearly done! I make sure to opacity lock ALL of my layers, because here’s where I add those cool effects. On the different layers, I lightly skim over the edges with a different color. This is to give it either a glowy kinda effect or helps give it the appearance of lineart in certain places without actually giving it REAL lineart, which is super handy if you have something of one color overlapping another area of the same color. Without those added extra lines, the detail of what’s going on would be lost! Now just keep going until you’re done, yay!

There’s actually a lot of different methods to get this same effect, but this was just how I did mine since I was on a time crunch to get it done and my brain was slightly freaking out, haha. But it was thanks to that pressure that I figured this method out, so I can’t complain! Hope it helps you too! ‘w’

… It also doubles as a “how to draw Trigger” tutorial. ENJOY. xD

Anonymous said: I love your art so much it's so precious gosh <3, I wanted to ask if its ok if I use one of your drawings and use it as a forum/steam avatar? credit will be given to you if I get asked ofc or I could put the source in the signature, if its not ok then thanks anyway ^^!

Aaaahhhh yes of COURSE! Feel more than free to use any of my art for avatars/icons/backgrounds/banners, WHATEVER!!!

I am more than happy to let others use my art for those types of things, and it makes me even MORE happy if I get credit for it in a signature or profile or something somewhere, somehow! Thank you so much for asking and I’m so glad you enjoy what I draw! Take care! <3

leecario said: hey im sorry if this is in your faq already but im trying to put your chalk brush in my paint tool sai folder and i dont see the brush when i open it up. i put both the noise 2 and pencil 2 pics in the blotmap file. did i do anything wrong?

Hi there! SAI can get a little tricky since there’s a lot of folders for different textures, and there’s a lot of steps involved to install them, and if it’s not done just right, it won’t work!

But to replicate my chalk brush, you’ll need to put the Noise2 texture file into “blotmap” and Pencil2 texture into the “brushtex” file. Also make sure that they’re both correctly saved as grayscaled “.bmp” files, as any other type of file will not work!

From there, be sure to open the respective “.conf” file, (( ex: “brushform.conf” for the blotmap folder, and “brushtex.conf” for the brushtex folder )) and type in the new brush name EXACTLY, or else it won’t recognize it as a texture when you go to use SAI!

I have way more explanations about how to install custom textures and brushes into SAI hereso give it a quick browse! I know just how confusing and frustrating it can be to figure out how to install custom textures and brushes into SAI, so I’d definitely recommend looking up some videos on how to do it too. It sure helped me figure it out! Good luck, and I hope this helped at least a little!

Ahhhh I still can’t get over that my character Clover was picked for charathon, thank you so much to everyone that took the time to draw her! I’m pooped for now so I’m gonna rebloob the rest of the wonderful drawings that were made later, so if you don’t see yours yet, don’t worry! I want to personally write a little comment for each and every entry, it’s the least I can do for all the time each artist spent drawing me a picture!

And if you don’t want to see so many posts at once, feel free to block the tags “by others" or "Charathon”! But you’ll really be missing out on some cute quality art by other artists! *^*

LOVE these super cute shiny eyes, they can&#8217;t help but make me think of a fishbowl or some kind of cool exotic gem! And the way she&#8217;s perched and so fixated on what&#8217;s in front of her, it almost looks like she&#8217;s gonna pounce on something nearby! Too cute! :3

What a gentle-looking drawing! It really reflects Clover&#8217;s personality so well and I just love how tranquil this is; like spending a relaxing day at a Japanese garden! I wish I could float in a cute koi pond just like this! *v*
