I know Prime characters are difficult to draw due to their massive amount of details ect. ect. and Youtube quality is more or less very pixelated depending on who has uploaded episodes. So here's a bunch of screenshots for you to use as references. Only thing I ask is that don't share links directly to the images on photobucket, share this journal entry instead

On the Subject of BasesFellow People of Deviantart,On the Subject of Bases3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I am here today to talk to you about Bases and Dolling.
I am not asking you to do it, or even to like it, but just to put out a standpoint that is sorely missing from this ongoing row over what a Base really is.
You may think a base is a large traced piece from anime with no skill and that the people who draw on top of them are lazy artists who just don't want to learn how to draw. Some bases are traced, but not every base.
Dolling is a hobby, something that is done for fun, and not every doller out there wants to be able to draw like a whiz kid. A lot of people hold down jobs, or full time education and just want a little fun. And so they are able to use a base that they like and draw some clothes and hair onto it, often very skillfully.

Confidence in your TalentThe thing I see most often among young or amateur artists is people doubting themselves. I read dA comments or comments on tumblr underneath the art (or wherever it's posted) about "oh but the face is bad" or "I screwed up the folds" or such things.Confidence in your Talent2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's a thing I learned in Art School, and it is something that has helped me to become a much more daring and confident artist overall. And that is about your attitude towards your own art.
We were told never to point out to other people the failings in your own art, even if you can see failings. Just present the work and let other people make their own opinions.
Keep the 'bad things' private and work on them to get better.
This is for several reasons.
The most obvious one is the more professional side of things. No one will hire an artist who is not positive and confident about their own work. You wouldn't get a job at the supermarket if you wrote on your resume that you were excellent at scanning items but find the customers a bit irri

You looked at him warily. The whole crew (Except your over trusting captain) shared your uneasiness and distrust toward the new warlord. His steely gray eyes scanned over the crews faces, only to find you obviously glaring at him. He pauses meeting your glare for a moment before looking down at the deck. "You're too obvious," Nami tells you. You let out a soft snort, "I'm just making sure he knows I'm watching him," You reply. It wasn't that you were questioning Luffy's judgment, you respected Luffy a lot, but he was fast to trust.
"___! Come play with us!" Luffy calls, waving toward you. "Maybe next time," You tell him, scratching your neck. He pouts, and you frown. "No," You say, looking away swiftly. He tilts into your view, still pouting. "Luffy, no," You grumble. Usopp nudges you. "Come on," he chuckles. "Alright, you wanna play? Lets play!" You growl, leaping at Lu

It was so fun to read all of these. There were so many awesome submissions that it was difficult to choose, and I had some anxiety about needing to even pick a top 3, because I dont want anyone to think that what they did wasnt good! I like them all and will be commenting on each one in the users gallery.
:iconfablepaint: and I picked 3 that we felt had both a compelling art style and writing style.
Kays comments: Twiggy's paneling is captivating in this page. Her expressions are solid and her dialogue flows well and is believable. The dream sequence is my favorite bit - lit with an ethereal bloom, the slow introduction of blood is seriously creepy. Overall this page had a great mood that drew me in.

THIS IS MY PERSONAL OPINION AND DOES NOT AFFECT OR REPRESENT ANYONE ELSE'S EXPERIENCES, JUST MY OWN.
Big enough? Yes? We're good to go? Awesome.
So I'd like to talk about inspiration, motivation, and personal drive, all under the guise of expressing my take on the tracing debate.
I am a tracer. I've never taken steps to hide this fact, but I also don't broadcast it because the title carries an intensely negative weight with it. The community has been trained through countless reaffirmations that tracing equals stealing. That it's a lesser, baser form of expression and one to be shunned. This is logical, I suppose, at least to a point. The problem is that for me, a tracer by choice with no drive to improve who focuses on the legal, stock-based style of tracing, getting lumped in with the illegals can be a hassle.
You'll notice I said "no drive to improve". Yeah, wasn't kidding there. I'm about to drop a bombs
