I am in envy of the lovely shading on both, and the hands and pose on the second. Her palms on the first one look a little odd though. I don't think the lumpy bits (-_-; )should stick out so much.

But overall the poses are nice and dynamic, and I am in awe of your skill :D

We haven't seen anything like this since 1945. (Spoiler protection added to protect our German friends. People who can't speak german should be safe from the joke's effects.)


Wenn ist das Nunstruck git und Slotermeyer? Ja!... Beiherhund das Oder die Flipperwaldt gersput.


But seriously... What is the process used to create those images? What tools do you use?

Hehe... we must find a cure... KILL THE ARTIST... (crowd comes at me with fire torches).

I'm certainly not someone to aspire to, but you asked.

I've been working on my techniques for coloring on the computer since like 1994 I think. So it wasn't an overnight sorta thing. Anyway, I start by drawing it on paper (some of my friends do it totally digital). Then I use a transparent vellum to trace the drawing in ink. I use either Koh-I-Noor pens or Sakura Pigma markers to ink it. Scan it then clean it up in PhotoShop and color it.

The process to color it would take me a few pages to describe. It's a process I've been honing for many years as I said. It's mostly just using the selection tool and the airbrush tool. When I'm trying to learn I just look at other coloring styles I like and see if I can duplicate the results. Might not be how they do it but if I get the same look then it's good enough for me.

Thanks for the feedback. You're all too kind.

Well, if you're ever bored and want to describe the coloring process, I'm sure you'll find an audience here.

Was Popotan one of your influences? There's something familiar about the style of your faces and eyes. It could just be coincidence, though.

I was big into the PoPoTan style for a while. Though I've been just picking up stuff from here and there.

Lately I try to say away from looking at other stuff as much as I can. I want to come up with my own look. But I guess that's sorta impossible since it is bound to look like something somewhere.

Woah, that's awesome o.o I'll agree with PyTom, it does have a PoPoTan feel to it - not that it's a bad thing, of course.
