I found you - my senpai of painting :ohnoes: :dummy:

;;;w;;; I've always been curious about your paintings, do you use many layers for it? If I color something I need to use at least 8 layers :XD:

Nope. I do the exact opposite. I rarely ever use more than 3 layers. See, I start with painting flat colors in the shapes that I want them to be. Then I add darker colors and maybe black for the shadows. The last layer has my lighting or effects on it. 
For Echo I used 4 layers because her windows were so hard paint! TT^TT 
When I paint I use my tablet or CinQ monitor and I draw almost everything by hand with a special pen. :D

I feel so honored that you say that to me. :dummy:

Oh really? For the first time I draw, I used only 4 layers (line-flat-shade-highlight) but I started to shade more complex and I feel it's easier to work with different layers XD (Black shade for example, I use 3 layers for it: flat, 1st shade layer, 2nd shade layer and even another layer to fix anything I'd like to change)
My skills are not very good so if I use only one layer then it might happen that I clear everything soon :lol:

But using only 4 layers for this piece is awesome! I tried painting before and always resulted in mess all over the places XD

Now you've got me confused with all the layers. xD 
I sounds like you get a lot more control over your drawing than I do that way. In a way you can add more depth than I can with only one shading layer. I wonder... if you have 3 black shadings, and give them all a different opacity; what would that look like? :?

I like to stick to the traditional way as close as I can. It's just my thing. :shrug: :D

With different opacity would make it easier to edit the highlight (and contrast), also make the color looks deeper I guess? :'D I use many layers in case I would like to change the tones, highlight, shadow and so on... that I don't have to erase the whole thing---

Gorgeous!

Your lineless work is just stunning, and I love the way you shape optics. 
Everything here feels so...touchable. Her faceplate has this beautiful roundness to it, as if you could trace her cheeks. 
Absolutely lovely!

Echo is a beautiful OC. It was cool to work with her design because the shape of her head is so different from anyone else's. 
Shaping for me is like modeling clay. I may be a digital painter but I work very traditionally. I rarely ever use more than 3 layers. 

I thank you very much friend!

For you: anytime again! :la: Echo is super pretty and it was cool to draw her. Although I almost went nuts because I messed up her windows/glass elements a few times. :facepalm: 

I told you that I'd draw something myself. You said I could do whatever I wanted! 
If a painting comes with a stamp and a button - then a button comes with a stamp and a painting! Logic! :dummy:

LOL - Don't worry - I'm her creator and I still have issues where I too mess up her window/glass elements on occasion. So - you're not alone there. ;P

And I did~ I did say that you could do whatever you wanted. And it definitely appears that you did just that~ XD But I've super glad you did. X3

I would have done this sooner or later anyway. I already had the sketch made because I wanted to include you in my inner circle but I was too shy. I wasn't sure if I wasn't too childish or clingy... ^^;
