Firealpaca testing by GhostLiger Firealpaca testing by GhostLiger
So I decided to see what this FireAlpaca thing was all about. I was intending to use it for the next page of Curiousity (especially since I realise it's been a long time since the last page, my God time flies when you're not paying attention), but I came to the realisation that I didn't really know how to use the program since the tools function a little differently to what I'm used to with SAI and Photoshop. I've used it before, but only for the leaf brush for this: Gaster's Angel of Vengeance by GhostLiger
So have a test page of some characters who mean a lot to me - new, old and homegrown:

Left to right, up to down we got:

Sans from Undertale - because I haven't drawn him enough have I? XD Also, for this doodle I borrowed fluffySlipper's tutorial on drawing a Sans head and sorta combined it with the way I usually draw him. It's proven super useful, cheers for that Sans Chat Icon 2 How to draw Sans: part 1 by fluffySlipper

Mackenzie (Shadow) Verdion and Domino Gojenta from Murinine Tales - Lumped these two together 1) because they're next to each other and from the same universe, and 2) they're both my most important OCs. Domino was created around 2001-2002 ish and was my persona for years until that little upstart named Shadow dropped in and upstaged her.

Keith from Voltron: Legendary Defender - As a Galra, because I've been telling my Discord buds I'd do that for a while, but never got round to it. I made him sad for some reason. Oh well, it works for a fanfic idea I have.

Alt Reven!Sans from Revenantale: Angel of Vengeance - That version of Sans I made that I'm really fond of but I can't do anything with yet because the story won't make sense if I start the comic now. ;_;

Pikachu from Pokemon - It's Pikachu. What more can I say? XD

Manic from Sonic Underground - I confess, Sonic Underground is my favourite Sonic series. Yes it's weird and cheesy, but dammit I'm really fond of it.

Honestly though, once I got used to where everything is, FireAlpaca is an absolute dream to use. I mean, don't get me wrong, I still have one or two gripes with it, but these gripes are extremely minor, especially for a free program.

Anyway, I think I rambled enough. I'm gonna shut up now and actually work on the next Curiousity page...

Undertale (c) Toby Fox
Murinine Tales (c) GhostLiger
Voltron: Legendary Defender (c) Dreamworks
Revenantale (c) GhostLiger
Pokemon (c) Nintendo
Sonic Underground (c) .... Actually, who owns the copyright to that? Is it Sega or DIC?

It's a 40 ep cartoon series rather than a game. I don't think they ever did release a game for it which sucks because if they did I'd pounce on it.

And yeah, that may have been one of the reasons he's my favourite character... one of them XD

SO MANY PEOPLES AND OH LOOK IT IS SHADOW HI SHADOW *waves*

How does FireAlpaca do with Text and Speech Bubbles? Because my Photoshop Elements program is craaaap at them. Mainly it stretches text out really weird and won't let me change the curve of straight lines to make a speech bubble tail.

XD I started with Sans and then Shadow, and then I just kept adding characters XD; I would've kept going, but the final canvas size ended up at 8000x10000px and FireAlpaca was understandably struggling to save quickly XD;

Shadow: -Jumps at the sudden mention and waves back-

So far text is fairly straight forward, but as for speech bubbles I haven't had a chance to test that yet. I usually use Photoshop CS2 for mine which has lines you can curve, so I might still have to use PS for that. I'll see how it goes with this next page.

meanwhile on the Inky adventures....
Firealpaca LITERALLY CRASHED MY FINDER AND MADE IT STOP WORKING. I restarted my computer now my finder is fine. But my computer is not meant for these art programs, thus I can't use them. You are lucky, because I did manage to draw something before it did that, and damn, that is a great program.

Aw that sucks :(

Though, I'll be honest, I don't know what a finder is.

Ah! I've never used a mac so my level of expertise in that area is non-existant I'm afraid ^^;

Only if you have time/motivation :D In the meantime I might have loosely borrowed the hybrid idea for a random fluff and angst fic...

It might not ever get posted officially since I'm writing it as stress relief and it's a bit all over the place, and Lost is only mentioned at the beginning and with a brief cameo at the end, but I'll see. I just wanted to get a some fluff and angst scenes down and the hybrid idea turned out to be the perfect trigger.

Reven is proving to be a very jealous and insecure individual.
