Yeah, I've been trying to work more based on the guidelines set down in some of my drawing tutorials. I really need to dedicate to practicing right from them, though, and not just milking them for tips. The Draw Furries series in particular is especially helpful. It talks in common sense layman's terms and describes how to use geometry to make forms and then building up settings. Really comprehensive stuff there.
Actually I've been stocking up on blenders every other week for the past month, so now I've got over a dozen, but I use them up so quick it's ridiculous!
Also, belated replies are fine. I've been busy myself and struggling to find time to draw. I'm working some more advanced stuff now and even got back to working on Feral Twilight off-and-on here the past couple weekends.
Also, yeah! Pyra's Plushies was the later inspiration for a string of toy transformation pics that I've been meaning to bring back. Osiris is her father and aptly named after the Egyptian death god. The character himself is actually pretty severe and tries not to show a lot of sympathy for people, while Pyra's normally shy until she gets to know people and becomes extremely clingy if not outright obsessive over the person! XD
Sorry for taking so long to respond. May's been super busy on my end, and I went home to see family for two weeks.
Hah, by now you probably have two colorless pencils left? How long are these? It's pretty crazy if they're normal pencil-sized! :P
Wow, I really like the design on that drawing there!
You've once shown me a story about Pyra turning someone into a plushie, I think. As for Osiris, I'm not sure. I've heard that name before, but it may have just been from ancient Egyptian mythology or something.
Ah, I've seen those colorless pencils when I was a kid. I remember being confused about how it wasn't coloring anything. :P But yeah, you're getting really good! It's always interesting to see an evolution of style.
Nay, a colorless colored pencil that acts as one. Coincidentally, I do have them, just for graphite pencils which I rarely use atm... I like them, but I've done more in ink and colored pencil these days. :/
Eh, I got a good way in, but eventually just stopped... >_<; IDK... I may have beaten it, but I think I got bored partway and just stopped as a result.
I think I cleared up the Guild arc with PSMD and again stopped... I haven't had the time to dedicate to gaming like I used to (not for the past few months anyways), and for what I have, I mostly put my effort into a niche title called The Legend of Legacy, which is basically classic FF on steroids. :x
Really? Well, I've actually just got some new art tools for coloring that have immediately made a difference, but rather than talk...here...
No worries! I'd be a hypocrite if the late response bothered me. :)
Haha, I'm a bit the same in that I don't like being pushed to try things. I definitely understand where you're coming from.
Really, you didn't finish Y? I was under the impression that you did. I thought I had your complete Friend Safari? But yeah, I recommend White 2. It has the best level curve, in my opinion. Too bad unlocking Challenge Mode is so weird and backwards.
Out of curiosity, do you remember how far you got in PSMD? But hey, trying to improve in drawing is a good endeavor! I don't think I've seen your gallery lately?
Erf, sorry for such a late response...busy month and I forgot about PC for a bit here...
Yeah, Nintendo's systems and have always been my faves. I just don't like the notion that I obligedly /have/ to change if I want to keep up with any of the so-called "good games" anymore... I've always had limited interests, so I don't take well to being pushed into other things just because other people tell me I'll like them...
I'd have enjoyed challenge mode again too. Actually, I don't think I ever finished White 2 or Y for that matter... I just stopped playing them for a bit and forgot about them... I should dig them out of my game drawer soon and pick up where I left off.
I think my issue with PSMD is the fact that I felt like it was oversimplified and didn't give me a reason to keep playing. I want to get back to it, but have no drive to lately... Coincidentally, I haven't gotten around to starting EO2 Untold yet either, despite having it for months. Lately, I've been idling with my games as I continue to try and get better at drawing in my downtime... I showed you my FA gallery lately, right?
