Charmander by DrManiacal Charmander by DrManiacal
Still trying to use brighter colors, think I had a little more success here. There's a bunch of things that I want to go and fix as usual, but right now I am too tired. Slightly rough day lol.

Lovely use of colours! That blue used to shade is a great addition. Its a really nice piece.
Did you use any special brush?

Thanks! No special brushes here, just the default hard and soft edged brushes in Photoshop.

Goodness, this is amazing. I demand a shading tutorial! May I ask if you used a specific brush to shade or just a shiz-load of colors to do this? :P

You know what's really lame? I recorded this entire painting, and the file ended up being corrupted and absolutely useless. Either I am an idiot and can't figure out how to record properly, or Camstudio is just terrible now. It's really weird because I have used it before to do the same thing for a school project and it worked just fine. -_-

As far as brushes go, the only ones I use anymore at any point in these are the default hard edged and soft edged brushes in photoshop. Mostly the hard one, I only use the soft one if I want a nice glow effect (like around the flame here). I could do a step by step type thing at some point I suppose, but only if I can't get the videos working lol.

Damn, that sucks. Have you tried HyperCam? I'm starting to use it again & works perfectly (for me, at least).
That helps! I'm still a noob to Photoshop. I'm working on something right now & I'm trying out some different techniques. Photoshop is so confusing. I'm pro at MS Paint though. Ha! Anyway, I'll try out those brushes, so thanks. c:

Hypercam was something I planned on trying today actually, will be using to record in a few minutes. And don't worry, you get used to photoshop pretty quickly :D

Thanks. :) I'm sure you could if you spent WAY TOO MUCH time deciding on a pose and trying to get it to look right like I did, lol.

Yea I noticed this was brighter. Looks good.... even tho I think I've developed a strange orange.. thing over the last month. definately looks good. Charmander... you've gotten like 3 of my favorite pokemon this week. Watch your random generate Pidgeot and Raichu or like Luxray.

The generator seems to have called a truce with me after Lotad and Gothita. Sometime soon it is going to start in on a streak of Voltorbs and Diglets though, calling it.

Hah, thanks. Does your school or college or whatever offer graphics courses? If so you could just go to one of the classes and see if you could borrow one out, they let us do that in some of my high school classes.

Youre welcome. :XD:About that in my school they dont offer
graphics courses and i knew about those courses because
other artists told me too, sadly in my school theres almost
no technology. The only technology we have is the Smart
electronic boards that came with graphic tablets which they
wont let anyone touch and I know about it because my Math
teacher saw some of the tablets when they installed the board,
so yeah im f*cked.:/ And where i live they dont sell Graphic
tablets.
