Hey all, this is a long one!
So I've decided I'm going to have to postpone this new style attempt until I get a proper tablet. I've been asking around and everyone who inspires me says they use one, and im pretty sure what they do is impossible with a mouse.
This means I'm going to continue working on Dragonball/Z/GT and Pokemon, but also start to try a few other games and shows styles.
As you know I've already done one featuring The Simpsons kids. Next I'm thinking I'll do something with Bleach characters, most likely Yuruichi or Chad, who are my favourtie characters. I think I'll also do some images featuring Family Guy's cast, Futurama's cast and maybe even attempt South Park's crew, which I think would be a lot of fun.
The Lucario Mind Reader image I drew up was only meant to be a test, but I ended up throwing it into a contest and people seem to like it. With that one I completely skipped the digital lineart step and did my cell shading right onto my sketch, which I don't think I've ever done before. It made it look pretty terrible close up, but it allowed me to show my true drawing style, which is usually pretty flowing like that. I havn't been able to make a lineart using that style successfully so far, which is quite frustrating. I believe having a tablet will make it much easier to do linearts in my natural style.
The last thing I wanna know about is the DeviantART Print Process.
I have had two reqeusts for my Simpsons drawing to be submitted a print. I have done so, well I think I have. What I'm asking is: Is there a time that I have to wait for the print to be approved? I submitted it as a print about 10 hours ago, and I'm not sure if this is out of the ordinary, because it still hasn't registered.
Anyway hopefully that means I'll be making profit soon! Haha, thanks guys.
