    Had to make sure it wasn't a fluke the first time I did it before I do a small tutorial (of course this time with color because momiji has white hair which is easier to work with)

    I'm liking the direction I'm going since this is faster then my usual line & color approach but I'm still playing it a little safe. So I'm going to try more color mixing and maybe work outlines/textures into it and add my favorite white accent-like outlines and see how it looks, see you all soon~

    I wanted to do more with the skin like momiji but panda is kinda hard to work with since she has that mandatory shadow over her face, I'll choose someone else and see if it makes a difference or not ;w;

    So where's that tutorial you promised?
    *sweats profusely* It's spring break, so umm, here you go @foxwaffles (I'm gonna go scream now, I just saw Sakura for jp collab and I want to make an account asap for her)

    the finished product, tutorial is under since it's lotsa images. The monster I used is new weapons 2 series thing...uhm, I'll look her up later for you.

    Edit: Okay shes Claíomh Solais from the Weapons/Braves 2 series and I think she's really cute. I want her.

    Tip: Take color from what you already blended, if you need more contrast choose a new color then :3c

    5 is optional but it makes the colours more saturated and I personally like that~

    Hope this helps~~ I wouldn't mind clarifying some things but all it really comes down to practice and maybe some painting experience (it helped me owo*)

    What kind of tablet do you use? I'm assuming it's some sort of tablet without a screen right? (like Intuos/Bamboo) since Cintiq requires giving up a kidney

    If you do use one of those kinds of tablets, HELP MEEEEEEEE

    If I draw on a Cintiq suddenly my artwork is like WAO AMAZING and it gets done so much faster. But if I use the Intuos that I ACTUALLY OWN because ffffffs like hell I can afford a Cintiq lol (school has a bunch that's how I can use them) then suddenly it takes me forever, everything looks like garbage, and I get irritated and slowed down by how small my laptop screen is in comparison to a 22-inch Wacom Cintiq.

    The benefit of larger screen real estate combined with higher resolution is captain obvious (more room to put things, don't need to zoom in and out all the time etc.) but I feel like using the Cintiq has become my "art crutch" to produce anything remotely good digitally and that makes me so angry at myself :banghead: If I need a Wacom Cintiq to look like I know what I'm doing, I am no good at all :sorry:

    Unless I'm dead wrong for some reason I can't uncover yet

    I'm so saltyyyy

    yup, if you want specifics I use a intuous 4, he's been with me since forever~
    I also have a cintiq (I don't spend everything on mobage hahaha) he's small but I know what you mean when things can get done faster and look better- and the... lack of a kidney...

    As for help, besides the fact that hand-eye coordination is a freak of nature, all I can think of is to maybe try out different set ups that work best for you. Personally I set my tablet on the side of my screen so I can access the shortcuts easier/quicker and instead of tablet mode I'm on mouse mode.

    Also don't let it get to you, you're doing fine! If anything, think of your drawings like trial and error, do something different each time you start one and evolve it into something your comfortable with and can get faster at doing, try it on both the tablet and cintiq and you'll learn their quirks~ the medium does what it does best ( ´ ▽ ` )b

    please don't beat yourself over it if in the end you get the last laugh, I know I had my fair share of that at 3 in the morning, I believe in you!! RULE THE TABLET!

    MY RNG'S BEEN THE WORST, AND PAD HAS BEEN GETTING ROUGH FOR ME TO KEEP UP.

    I'm so sad, I used to be so happy when new monsters or art got announced but now I've been putting this game on the back burner for others ;____; I tried taking an unannounced break but I guess I need more vacation time...
