Another sketch from me. Though this time I fiiiiiiinally posted a video on YouTube and it's progress from this sketch. I recorded it from scratch. You'll see how I do it from the beginning till the end. Video is 5x faster than normal speed (cuz you would probably die if you would stare at this for 2 hours <_<). Sorry for not posting videos for so long...I didn't have space on hard disc, then other problems came after T_T you can check on link below:

Progress video from this sketch you can check on YouTube here :la:

Hey i have a question, in ps how do u blend? Do u press lightly on ur tablet? Plsase reply
Valentina-Remenar's avatar
Yeah... I press lightly and I change brush Opacity (around 50-60%) and brush Hardness (0% hardness) :D

Thank but i have another question

Why dont u use sai? Is PS better? Also is PS5 good? Is it as good as PS6?
Valentina-Remenar's avatar
LOL... I just couldn't get used to SAI ^^; I used it maybe twice, and never again. I used Photoshop mostly, so I'm most comfortable drawing with it. If I use a program similar to SAI, then that's a Clip Studio Paint (aka Manga Studio)'s a mix of SAI and Photoshop. But yeah...I still prefer PS over Clip Studio Paint, cause I'm used of brushes which don't blend so much.

And yup... PS5 and PS6 are both good... PS6 has few more options and it has a backup if your computer shuts down all the sudden, then it opens a recovered file :D

I saw the video.. Hamtaro Mouse Emoji-02 (Kawaii) [V1]  Awesome as always! :excited:  I'm amazed at your patience with hair.. :D I've a question when you draw a human character, do you first collect a lot of references? Like for hairstyle, eyes, face structure etc? :) Thanks a lot! Huggle! 
Valentina-Remenar's avatar
Thank you so much :iconbrohugplz: And nope :XD: This is my original character so I made up his face, hair and everything. first I'd need ages to find a person who would at least look a bit like him :XD:
Blue-Sapphire-Ren's avatar
Hi! Thanks so much for replying!! :excited: And thanks for the info..! Squee! I guess its experience you can draw without references right? :happybounce: 
Valentina-Remenar's avatar's my pleasure...I always reply :dummy: Yeah...the longer you draw, the more experience you get. I draw for years, so now I can make up my characters and draw them without refs if I want to :la:
