Taking a break from art and posting on here for the time being and trying my hand at animating and seeing where that takes me, when I've got down some animations I'll probably link my youtube here.

Stay safe or just have fun.

how do you make your art.
SitInTheShade Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Hehe, pretty vague question honestly, choose a piece and I'll tell you the process of it, how about that?
Dimiara-BlackHeart Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2013
i love your pray for silence and stuff like that

Well those ones are pretty simple to do really, I just use a brush to block in a rough outline of the figure and then work away with the eraser on the details [link]
I did some videos a while back to show how I did them for others, even though this was earlier stuff principles the same.
Thanks for being intrigued at least ;)
