Here's the clincher, though:

He's not a ninja, and he will get indignant if you refer to him as one. He just happens to dress somewhat similar and uses sais as his preferred weaponry. (His dress is actually that of a desert culture, though the shoulder spikes and cape are his personal fashion statements.)

I'm interested in how you'd fair on doing a comic.

Yeah, that's what all this is leading up to anyway.

By the way, I like how you did those pants. I'm NOT good with pants.

Really? Never saw it as that so much, but to each his own.

And of course, thanks to you all for the compliments on my work. ^_^
Too good for you.

That's the idea.

And I finished the Rin pic on page 2, though I didn't really add too much.

Well, I gave the SDL a shot, and here's the result:

ITEM REMOVED DUE TO TEH SUCK. SEE LATEST POST

Hopefully I get in. (Yes she looks shorter than the last picture of her, but that was completely intentional. The last one was *too* tall.)

Man, I really have to learn some better coloring techniques for the computer. Ah, well.

Re: Acktoo's Art Thread- SDL

Postby Acktoo » Wed Aug 13, 2008 10:51 pm

Due to the fact that the first one was a horrible artistic nightmare, I re-did my SDL character's profile with a halfway decent program.

It's as if the last one NEVER EXISTED.

Yeah, I appropriated me some Photoshop.

And her skin is shaded, it's just I should have picked a darker color to shade it with.

It's an OC contest without any real deadlines. That's about the easiest way I could put it...

And I wouldn't mind dueling sometime, though I've already got two to work on as we speak.

Stuff... (Domino)

Picture has been removed.

My style seems to tweak all over the place.

Coypasta'd from DA:

I WILL COLOR IT LATER.

Just a little something to put in my gallery for now, even if it is unifinished, so that my gallery doesn't look so barren all the time.

Yeah, so...

Also, whoever guesses where the decoration on the shirt comes from, they get 10 points.

And yes, I am pefectly aware of the fact that all of my characters seem less than thrilled. That's just how they are.

Except Nathan.
Too good for you.

Re: Acktoo's Art Thread- New WIP

Postby Comatose » Fri Aug 29, 2008 6:47 am

I like how she looks, the only thing I could pick out is her arms. I know the effect you were going for, but when you put your arms up that high, your elbows rise too unless you're doing the funky chicken X3 Thats the only suggestion I can make, it's very nice otherwise! Extremely smooth lines (of which I'm VERY envious) and nifty pattern on the shoulder, but I won't be making any points today X3 (unless it's Gurren Lagaan)

wtf Acktoo.
Why your art's getting so much better so quickly, I have no idea but wish to know.

No crits, Comatose pointed it out. It's Domino, it's sexy as always :snoogins:, and I honestly can't wait to see it colored.

Yeah, you're right. That I noticed *after* I drew it. The reason why the lines are so clean is 'cuz I completely redrew them in Photoshop. Here's the original line art:

It's probably the messiest I've done so far. XD

And Coos, I'm not quite sure what I'm doing right either. Every picture I draw tends to differ in style somewhat from the previous one.
