Paint.net sample tests

Pretty much my whole thought using paint.net was “Lalala, don’t know what I’m doing! Trying to figure out all these style prints :D”

(Going off reference because its less thinking on my part photo…Outline first in ms paint and then copy pasted into paint.net. Those boots…kind of want) Still figuring how the layers work (Can’t see new lines on layer 1 without drawing/erasing on layer 3, thought it would be on “multiply” setting or something)

… And since there’s no other excuses to not put these up, guess I can show you the rest. She wanted me to do some uniform-wearing school theme.

Slowly getting the hang of layering, though it be a pain.
Remember when you bought a coloring book and before coloring inside the lines you think to yourself “I’m totally going to make this look good!” and then after coloring you think “Oh Buddha, this looked better NOT colored!” Yeah, always thinking that.

Before (just look at Machi)

(I won’t tell you how easy it is to draw Machi while I take all night figuring my own sorry mug’s look. And the hands, don’t look)

After

All this theme is doing is making me want to draw a whole classroom of friends…

gonna need reference and loads of time stalking/staring at friends faces

Paint

I’m not a huge fan of photoshop, I’m utterly lazy to learn how to use it, and find it way too much work for the sketching I do. (Because everyone that asks for art on the internet are absolutely gaga over nice photoshop-like art and totally unthankful when given anything in pencil, on lined paper, scanned. Have to give love to the pencil.)

And it’s only sketches, which is why I love ms paint. Tons of long hours into the night of zooming in, erasing gray lines, and picking the right color and stuff. I usually end up finishing by sunlight (shows how long I take if to draw)

If you told me to use photoshop, then expect it to be all colored and shaded and all that jazz, but ugh gonna need incentives because I take a couple of days on PS (10 piece chicken mcnuggets meal and 2 berry pies plz, sweet and sour sauce only, the best flavor ever when Disney’s Tarzan came out). I’ll stick to mastering the old version of paint.

In response to Machi’s question, not a huge fan of PDA but if no one’s looking then I might…

Resisted getting too ‘excited’ drawing this out on Easy Toon. ( =//u//=) *slinks away*
