The actual file is huge, so here's a closer view of the faces:



Photoshop CS6, 12 hours, trying a new style. I hope you like it!

Oh gosh. Thank you aaaaaahhhh. That's so lovely for you to say! I still have a long way to go to get to where I want to be.

Also, no one asked for this, but I learned how to make a gif showing my process! A little bit grainy, and I don't always do it this way, but I think it's cool.

Very lovely.

Makes me wish I was that good at drawing via art programs.

Also, if you don't mind me asking, what is the name of the teeth/fang item you are wearing?

Thank you!

It's just called "Fangs." I got it around Halloween, so it might have been a Halloween exclusive. Though, I can't recall.

I just love your process gif! I really admire everyone who can work in grayscale and then incorporate color later, I've read tutorials and tried it out but something has just never clicked for me. The process gif gives me a good appreciation for your linework and use of texture too!

It's really funny, but this is the first time I've ever actually tried greyscale first. Everything else I've ever done always started in colour and maybe I'd check it in greyscale to see how my values were doing. This time around I knew I only had a weekend, so I tried a colouring shortcut I found online where you pick shades to apply to your darks, mediums and lights... and something something photoshop magic?

I will say though, greyscale is way easier for my brain to process. But I don't think the final product has as much depth as when I decide to use colour from the start. But eh, that's just me being picky.

Thank you so much! I really enjoy your linework as well! Your lines taper so so smoothly!

And I'm in my lazy "draw a sketch, be too lazy to line it, throw a multiply layer over the top to colour it instead" methods hah

Don't get me wrong! That's my life! And then I decide, eh, screw it, and don't bother ever drawing anything.

This is the first actual thing I've made in... Ah, 5 months? This time I decided to go hard. I'm very much an all or nothing kind of artist. I'm pretty sure the lack of practice is really bad for me in the long run.

Mush sounds like really fun fingerpainting. I want to mush around paints now.
