:star: To Download: Look to the left side, click on DOWN LOAD button. XD

:w00t: Directions here: [link]

(inker's job is much more difficult than a colorist's job, experience in digital inking is required...ask me questions if you are not sure about something.)



For people who are interested in joining my team to create an anime. >_>


After you finished, e-mail it to mayshing@gmail


:dance: If you passed you will be added to my list of helpers, and receive e-mails when I have stuff to send to the whole group, only help out if you have time at the moment.

:heart: Once you completed your part and I am satisfied with it, I will list your name in for the credits.

:salute: Be aware, the workload is not light, you will be required to show me result in a week once given assignment. It's like a job, like the do it or doom homework, do it like it is.



:D You will be included on a special marketing discount when the dvd is out.

You use manga studio to do your lines? :3 Same here, but I ain't too good with it. Readin' your tutorials are really helpful though. Thank you very much! ^^

I use manga studio for now. I have sai but I'm kinda not used to it yet. Like I don't know how to do the lines on there. xD

really? Sai is simpler i thought. lol Mangastudio does have its unique interphase. Sai is closer to photoshop interphase. I picked it up really fast.

Sorry to ask the same question again, but i think I wasn't clear so I'm clarifying my question here.

I read the instructions and you mentioned that you want some subtle changes in the lines? Now I've been under the impression that the lines should stay the same except for the complete necessary, so what exactly should change? Clothes? Hair?

Do this one: [link]

This is closer to what you will get from me as an inker right now. The other first test is a bit outdated.

Is it alright if you could tell me the site or place to purchase Sai?
I had a 30-day trial before, but isn't the real thing only in Japanese? :/

:O hey you are a pretty good animator. (looks like Disney based style training of animation and have anime love)

If you can help out with the animation itself that would be awesome. :)

You keep plugging away. ^.^!

I really wish I had some way of being any help to you, but animation is not my field at all... Illustrations are all I am good at. I guess I will remain a cheerleader.

So... Keep it up! I look forward to your next update/installment.

tell people about my work will be enough. :D Thanks!

Actually, you can help with something, watercolor texture.
I can do it myself but i have time concerns.

I need stocks on watercolor texture i can feel safe to use without worry of rights and problems.
If you have time, do some random watercolor splashes, from warm to cool,
abstract with some concept, something like this: [link]
and scan them at high res for me.
I will use it for my film and other things, if i used it in film i will add u to the crew list credit. ^_^9

alright. I have to do some of that with inks anyhow (A new medium and I am not use to it). The colors tent to be very vivid and the same feel as watercolors.

This is a great reference idea. I will print it. If you find any others, send them my way. Till I get an idea of what you want ideas will come across a little harder. thanks!

oh, check out :iconpainters: they have lots of great reference abstract paintings. ^_^

Just give me anything random is fine. :) I just need textures. Experiment.
For specific needs i will try to do it myself until the need is too great.
