If your still taking requests, I'd like to request my character Galatia from you online game.

SuperStar wrote:For Photoshop styles, I tend to vary based on what I'm doing. For the animated look, I use a base color, covered by a large, fuzzy airbrush set to multiply in darker version of the same hue to get the shadows in, and then switch to soft light and brush in white. Then I go smaller on the bush sizes to get detail (but not too detailed for these). Then I switch to dodge and burn (midtones) and go through the same process of big brushes to small brushes. That's pretty much it.

Mmm thanks for the info. I've been using gradient fills for all of my shading and it is by far the most time-consuming (and tedious) part of the art process for me. I need to experiment with some of the brush techniques you describe and see if I can get better and quicker results.
You -draw- with a mouse?!?infidel wrote:I haven't used a tablet for awhile. I used one back when I started the comic, but found it to be less precise than the mouse. Perhaps tablets are better these days. Which do you use?

Sure, but no promises.
infidel wrote:Oh nononono.
I do my line art by hand in pencil. I then scan it, adjust the contrast, and cut the black lines off the white background and paste on a transparent layer in Photoshop. I then add the color and shading on other layers.
The mouse is strickly for outlining areas to fill with color or gradients

What's the story on her Striker? Any powers? Stats?
And the Nikes RULE. Up there with The King of Fighter's/Fatal Fury's Terry Bogard's classic Converse tennies and jacket.
