It's a series I want to write as a comic. Basically, a nurse helps out mental patients by entering their minds to fight off parasitic monsters.

Sounds cool. :cool: I'm not good at all at drawing comics, but I do a lot of character design, so I could help you out with that some time if you need it. :)

I like your character designs - they look pretty original. :cool: The art is also done well. :)

I hope they could be animated. :D

I'm glad you guys like them! =) Here are a few more...

I fail at drawing banjos, but the rest is okay.

These sketches are for the same story idea as that picture of the creepy girl with the lantern in the woods.

That chick in the last picture looks like she has a demonic pterosaur coming out of her mouth. I think it looks sweet! :twistedevil:

Absolutely jealous of your talent,
but is amazed by your art nevertheless.

The only best I can do when it comes down to drawing
is just stick people. :lol: :lol:

Thanks for the compliments, guys. :D

*sigh* When they see my Toonmaker's Sailor Moon fanart, people keep telling me they prefer the original like they think I prefer the Americanized version. :roll: I like the original better, okay? I like the Toonmaker's version because it's a very silly dated piece of 90's nostalgia. Not because I've deluded myself into thinking it's really good or better than the original. I drew the characters because until I got higher quality footage there were no accurate fanart depictions of them.

Had to get that off my chest. ^_^'

EDIT
--
Here's my take on Sleeping Beauty. I'll try to color it sometime soon. The "mesh" will be lace.

I think you're going somewhere, you're good at giving your characters that 3-dimensional look. (A skill I've yet to touch) There were some details that gave me pause in some, but your latest princess looks really good. You're going to color her?

Thanks Rika. :) I'm hoping I can advance enough in the 1.5 years I have before I graduate to get a job. ^_^'

Wow, I never thought Briar Rose could look so scary/cool! :D I'm also interested in what program you use.

I almost always start out with a pencil sketch on paper. Next I scan it onto my computer and open the scan in Corel Paint Shop Pro X2 (it's like the poor man's photoshop). Then I use the pen tool to make an outline over the original drawing in a new layer. After that, I use the fill tool on the same layer to do the flat colors. Shading is where it gets tricky- sometimes I do cel shading and other times I do regular shading. For cel shading I select each color with the lasso/wand tool and choose a slightly darker or lighter color in the palette; then I color in the area I want to look shaded with the paint brush tool with opacity and hardness at 100%. For regular shading I select each color with the lasso/wand tool and then use the lighten/darken brush to airbrush in highlights and shadows. Lastly, I make a background by making a new layer under the outline/color layer and on top of the sketch layer. Backgrounds vary for me; sometimes I use specially-shaped brushes to do more complex backgrounds while other times I just do a simple gradient background. Sometimes I'll also use layer effects on the outline/color layer to give the image effects like an outer glow, drop shadow, etc.

That's pretty much how I do it. :)
