Awesome. I love the effects and for a change I like the background (I normally don't care for the background) and the person is lovely.

I would've personally have liked it though if her hair had a little extra shine and her clothes had more effort in the folds if you don't mind me saying.
Anyone want ta take look at my own comic?

Tenshi - Let the butt jokes commence!

Thy - Thank you! Honestly, I'm not too happy about how it turned out. You're right. More work/ effort could've been put into the hair, clothes, and... Well, everthing. I planned this to turn out differently than it is right here. But whatever I had in mind, I don't have the skills to communicate it the way I'd like to. At least, not yet.

Tenshi - What? Thought forecast says it'll be clear skies and full moon. Aw : <

Ari - Crafting felt and a towel. I had no idea of photoshop's texture filter existence until a few nights, so the textures are from a photograph and use of the layer's blending modes.

Cerulean - It sure is! And it's perfect for trekking into the Ice Kingdom and getting back whatever the Ice King stole.

Holy carp it's so bad. I don't know how to use Photoshop's timeline thingymajigger, and thus have no idea how to put in extra frames and make it look not as jumpy or choppy.

Animation's never easy starting out. That being said, this looks great, Rux. Definitely a good job starting out.

Thanks Sigment! There is still lots to learn in the world of animation for me.

I think PB has the tech to create cloud clothing as well as whipped cream, Tenshi. So Clouds with sprinkles don't sound that farfetched.

And yeah! Photoshop can do animation. Think starting from CS5 and onwards it can do it I think...? Although I'm not too sure since I used CS2 for the longest time, and then a straight jump to CS6. And before that, Corel Painter 9.5 for the longest time, but I don't think that's too relevant...

That Pokeball joke... Too... much... reality... Seriously, though, they gotta go somewhere. It's like there's a black hole hiding in the trainer's backpack. Also, I see that Voltorb and Electrode in there. It's like a "Where's Waldo" joke.

Anyway, these all look great, Rux. Good job as usual.

This tutorial is what I used. Other than that, looking at pretty rocks and try to copy what I see.

Hm. Haven't been here for a while. Here's what I've drawn over the past month and then some.

... A little more than a month and that's it?! Hm. I suppose the rest are basically unfinished sketches and studies of naked people.

I'm thinking of maybe trying out something out. Like, coloring line art submitted by forum goers of SNAFU and streaming how I go about coloring, mostly for kicks and giggles. Good practice for me since my coloring's pretty eh. And I suppose someone can learn a thing or two (or yell at me on how incompetent I am at SAI).

Yay nay?

Adventure time AND Pokemon art?! I'm hooked! Also I really love your style and didn't know you could animate directly in Photoshop. I'll need to double check and see if I have 4 or 5 on my laptop, I've been meaning to start dabbling a bit with it this summer.

Thank you for the warm welcome Cerulean! And glad you like them.

Thank you Sig!

Frowning Mimi is best Mimi BD! Although I think her default face is a frown/scold. Or at least anything but a smile.
