I'm trying to do some more coloring practice, but then I forgot that I was drawing entirely in greyscale. Anyway, it's practice right before class

I'm making an RPG and I've started designing one of the characters. I'm using MangaStudio and I'm pretty new to drawing in general. Any tips on adding colour?

go on the layer below the lineart, put your flat colors in, and put all your lighting stuff in between and set them to "Clip at layer below"

That's really cool! Thanks for telling me... Is nice to see it in places that I don't visit or posted by someone else, before I would have delusions like "maybe an anon will post this in gelbooru haha j-just kidding..." But no one did.

A friend told me "I'm using this as wallpaper!!" and I was thinking, "Really? why?" I guess is the magic of NepNep

Of course, the game is based on the console war so there's xbox references and nintendo too, although Noire is the Goddess of Playstation in the game

Working on the next page of my comic thing, realized this was basically me in school.

And now I pay the price by being a starving artist, hooray

This is a sketch. Also she has cow ears. The original idea was she was a cow-girl. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

Hoods are so cute and yet so difficult to draw

I've been using FireAlpaca as my drawing software, and it feels limited, it gets the job done when editing memes, and the layers really help, but it seems like it's just a step up from MS Paint. Got any recommended software, preferably with good painting tools? Been meaning to get into painting.

As said before: clip studio paint is goddamn amazing.
The program's also relatively cheap, especially since the company has sales like every three months.

If you have absolutely no cash on you, you should look into krita.
The program's basically a watered down Photoshop with a painting focus.
It has everything a drawing program needs, but for some reason, it's needlessly recorded heavy.

Clip studio is something i can't recommend enough, paint tool sai is good as well. clip studio has sales all the time and i upgraded to the EX version for like 80 dollars when it was on sale a few months ago maybe wait for their next one and grab it.

I use Clip Studio because their inking tools are great and easy to use off the bat. I got it for about $15 on sale so you can wait until they bring it back down to that price

I find Clip Studio to be a blast. It costs a bit, but it's on sale pretty often. Easier to use than stuff like Corel Painter, way more intuitive, very similar to FireAlpaca in many ways, but more powerful and versatile.
Most of the brushes for paint and such feel very organic, doing ink and watercolors feels pretty damn nice. :d

I like distorted stylization, so this should be right up my alley.
The plasticity is on point and the running colors add a nice touch.
It's great work, however, not very eye catching, I must admit.
I get that it's part of the painting, and it's supposed to be that way, it's just my own thoughts on why this wouldn't be so well received.
The execution is great, but it's sorta' unclear what exactly you were going for, if that makes any sense?

I started painting this wih no reference or outlines so once it started looking deformed I moved towards making it look intentional and as stylized as I could

I think the colors look great, but there's a strange perspective thing going on with the head and the rest of the body not sure if you were going for a very stylized look or not

Another practice sketch, this time is side view

left is with references while right is mostly using my own style. It is pretty difficult getting the jawline right :/.

Tell me what you think, and maybe what you feel to be 'off'

I suck at drawing ears, also, ignore neck

I'd try to make the bangs on the hair a bit more even, and fluff it out to give it a bit more volume. Looking good though.

looks fine to me.
Just don't get too used to sidemouth. It currently works well with your style, but I've seen some examples of peeps keeping it when the rest of their style has become more complex.
It starts lookin' weird at a certain level is what I'm saying.

No complains about the Jawline.

yeah, I like using that kind of sidemouth because I prefer to keep mouth section as simple as possible. You're right this "sidemouth" would not do well at later stage, thus I need to work it one step at a time, maybe when the "sidemouth" doesnt fit anymore

I think you should shrink the eyes a little, even while drawing in a non-realistic style.
Remember, the eye is a sphere; you can see very little of it in a profile shot. The pupil also isn't right on the surface of the eye, it's level with the iris.

Memorizing the structure of a skull is quite useful, it'll help you place the jawline and other features correctly. Highly recommend :]

I used 'anime' eyes too much that I am completely oblivious to how eye is a sphere, thanks for reminding me. I will try to make another one with that concept in mine.

Also, that guideline is also what I used, mouth with jaw, nose with ear and eye. I guess my only trouble now is the width of stuff.

Also, that's a great copy dude

The fire could look better with some lighter values. It's pretty saturated and dark right now. Also, seeing as you've used the smudge tool on the inside part of the fire, I recommend removing the linework and smudging the edges as well. Makes for some great looking flames.

nah, mate.
Using references is natural.
Everybody does it, really.
Even straight up copying is a go in the correct circumstances.
Copying is frowned upon if you're selling it as your own work.
It's perfectly fine for practice purposes.
in fact, proper copying is among the more important things to learn to git gud.
Helps with recognizing actual shape, instead of the ones you imagine, wich in turn, helps with drawing from life or reference, construction and trying new stuff. All sortsa' junk.

From what I can see:
Lineart nice ad smooth, shading subtle, but noticable.

Thanks, that's reassuring. I just still feel like it's in the least bit cheating to copy or emulate others works for anything other than private viewing and practice purposes. It's why I won't consider myself an artist until I'm able to draw without using it.

ooohhh.
Now I get it.
I didn't know the artist, so I was really confused.
I was referring to a saying, but was translating it literally.
It's a variation of the english "taking a page out of somebodies book"

You go on learning that stuff, mate.
Not yet desperate enough to do straight up porn, but as far as I've been hearing it, the best dongdrawers out there know their shit about proper anatomy, so maybe that's a good place to practice on?
