Sorry for the streching of the forum ^^;



Okay, still not much on the Futurama front, but here  big grin I scanned it in about half an hour and then took AGES to color it. Ain't it purty?

Can I ask how you get the variable thickness on your lines, and what software/hardware does it? Really looks good in the hair-line over Fry's ear, the line for the underside of his knee etc.  smile

Only dodgy bit is the lining of the glass, but for a half-hour's work it's all depressingly good!

Thanks guys! The smoke took ages to get right >.<;

EDIT: I do it manually, using the eraser. Takes a little while, but gives a nice effect. Oh and I know the glass is dodgy, I couldn't be stuffed by the end, which generally happens :P

You just confirmed my worst fear; good-looking effects require actual work. Bugger!

Oh well, extra congrats for the additional work, at least!

Demeter:

Damned girl - you're still in high school and you're this talented?  You're already in the league of FemJesse, TheVoices, Marcus and the others that I don't have room or time to mention.

Just call me a jealous old man.  I can't draw anything but flies, gnats and mosquitos in the summer.  As I said in an e-mail to another cyber-buddy who does art of a more riske type:

"Thanks for sharing your talent with the rest of us.  Not all of us can do artistic things and we can only enjoy what the talented ones share."

You, the other artists and the authors of the fan fics are some of the most generous people around - you share the efforts of your hard work with strangers for nothing, and sometimes for uncalled-for critism.  I wish to say "Thank you" to everyone included in that group.

I really like how you color your outlines.  It's really nicely done on Shego and fry, though it seems like the outline of Fry's eyes should be the same as the outline of his skin. in my opinion, the black makes them stand out a little too much.

Shego just looks amazing.  how do you get the variation on your line width looking so good?  what program are you using?

Peeps, I figured I'd show you the secret to these weighed lines. Make sure to increase the size of your image to around 200-500% bigger. The bigger you make the sketch, the better the lines will look when you reduce it to normal size again. I used Photoshop CS so it may be different from version to version. You WILL need to have some basic understanding of Pen Tool, altering Brush Tip Shape and the layer tool ^_^ On with teh show!!!

First, select a normal brush, one of the first ones in the set.

Brush Tip Shape
Size: 10-30
Angle: 87-93░
Roundness: 10-20%
Hardness: 75-100%
Spacing: 1%

And then also...
Shape Dynamics
Minimum Diameter: 40-70%
Angle Jitter: 0% Control - [Initial Direction]

Everything else should be on '0%' and 'Off' settings. Or just un-tick them; ^-^;

1)After this, outline your sketch and such with the pen tool in this part, just takes time and practice) and then after you have a section done (I'd suggest doing it one line at a time), right-click your mouse and choose 'Stroke Path'.

2)A little box should pop up and give you options of different settings. Choose brush, making sure that your paint brush is set with the settings above, and A) if not, close window, go to Paint Brush and alter or B) select brush and click okay. Do not have 'Simulate Pressure'. And you should get a nice and 'weighted' line.

2.5) When I did the face (mouth only here, but generally...) I reduce the brush size down to 10, using the 'b' (Quick-Flickę over to the Paint Brush) then the '['] (Quick-Flickę Reduces the size of the Paint Brush a pre-set amount. IE the size are; 1-10, 20, 30 etc) and then 'p' (Quick-Flickę back over to the Pen tool!). Makes it look a lot nicer than GIANT ARSE lines that bloch across the face. And then, once the face is done, make the brush bigger again using the 'b' then, insted of the smaller '['] use the opposite, et, bigger-er ']' button, which increases the size of your brush.

3) As for the ends where it leads of to a soft ending, you just erase them with the eraser manually. I know, I'm sorry :P There's no other way to do it right. Oh and it might take a few tries to get it right, but y'know... give it a chance.

Basically... XDXD Don't worry if you don't understand it, I know I wouldn't :x Ask Questions, Abuse me over not understanding etc etc, it's all good :3

Quick-Flickę to Sarah, xD

very clever technique.  I never really considered that you could use customized brushes for stroking paths. thanks for sharing. hah, at first I was a bit confused until I realised quick-flick is another work for quick-key.

as an alternative to using the eraser on the ends, did you know about switching the Size Jitter control to "fade," that's one way to get the lines to taper off.  takes a steady hand when you're using a mouse though, so i dunno how effective of an alternative it would be.

Have you ever used adobe illustrator?  I always assume scans are done in illustrator yet nobody I've asked uses it.  It seems like it'd be best suited for scans but I've never actually tried it so I could very well be missing something. Anyways, I'd imagine it'd be a program you'd really enjoy.

I've always wanted Illustrator *sighs dreamily* But I also use a Tablet as well, for the erasing part, but I also use a mouse. Either way works for me, so... I just figured I'd leave it up to you guys to figure out whatever method is more suited to you ^^

As for the tapered ends thing, i used to do that, but now I prefer do-it-yourself so your can get it the way you want it  smile

Jeeze, Demeter - all those technical terms make my head swim.  I'm sure Marcus, El-Man and the other artists understand all that stuff, but the extent of my artistic endeavors was taking a black and white photography class in college back in the 80's (I have a love for black and white - Marcus can confirm that).  In the class we had to use 35 mm cameras, 200 ASA film for daylight pics, 800 ASA for night pics, develop our own film, etc.

That's the closest that I can come to understanding your technical jargon, but I do recognize talent.  I hope that you end up being an animator for for RDS or the studio of your choice.

Actually, *blushes* I was cosidering a career at Disney. Of course you know Kim Possible. Well one of the writers encoruaged me to keep drawign and told me my art was excellent. Since then I've swayed from being a teacher or a physcologist (like my parents wanted me to be) to considering an art future. And keeping my buisiness knowlege up too. So, in 15 years you might see my name in the credits of a Disney film. Or even for Fox :P

But, yeah. Sorry for the little rant XD I'm putting together a portfolio to send to Disney now to get their opinions and keep them updated, which was also suggested to be by a person dA so evetually when I'm older they'll know of my works and see to it I get some sort of part in their corperation. But, dreams right?

Kiddo, dreams are what keeps us alive.

Granted, I'm sure that your parents would love for you to pursue a 'safe' profession like teaching, it's your life and you have to pursue your interests or you'll never be truely happy.

I'm probably older than your parents and I speak from experience - investigate what is needed to become what your want and pursue it.  Anything else is a waste of life and a waste of talent.

In Columbia South Carolina, several years ago (early 90's) I knew a young man.  I was on the singles scene and he was a stuent at the University of South Carolina.  He was also a member of a local band - forever seeming to scratch a meager existance on the local scene.  making the big time seemed like a pike dream - what band from South Carolina ever made it nationally?  None at that time.  One night I happened to be at a Waffle House at 4 am and the band came trudging in - they all knew me from the several different clubs that they played and I went to.  This young man was dejected - he was tired and friends were telling him to take a 'real job' and give up on the music scene.  I told him the same thing I just said to you - to do anything other than what your heart commanded would be a waste of life and talent and he'd never be happy doing anything else.

The next year they made a big breakout and went national.  Your young age and being Australian, you may not know the name but you can look it up.  The young man that I spoke to was none other than Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish.

Sp pursue that dream.  It's the first step in making it come true.

Though I've never heard of them, was he in a marching band or some alternative kinda thing like a rock band? Because let me tell you, I'm in band myself, and I will be, but I'm thinknig of some sort of computer or art work for someone. (Disney college ho! and I can't believe you went to clubs Ralphie... roll eyes.) Although I hope to someday make a show of my own, or work on a show that I helped come up with, preferably in Simpson (Groening) style art, I may not get to do that. I may work at a computer, and that's just fine. I love computers.
Demeter, you just keep on doing what you love, and possibly, just by some slight chance, though we may never know it, we may run into each other. Just like Show. He wants to pursue a carreer like the rest of us nerds.  wink

I'm not sure.. The regular pen tool I think. The Freeform doesn't give off the best curves, unless you've got excellent control over them.

And thanks ^^

And guys... I could/would never officially give up on my art. If anything I'd get a job at Disney and then on the side another career. Maybe in the near future commisions or such at deviantART. A webcomic or two. Anything to get my art up in the open ^^ Giving up   no no I never would, without feeling bad.

Might be going to a five-day workshop these holidays of drawing, acting etc etc so yay!!! I'm really lookng forward to it, seeing as one of the days is like "Futurama: Draw your favorite characters from this show!" It's a really cheesy kinda thing, with like a 9-15 year old audience allowed to go, but I figured it'd be super fun to go to and see what others draw and create like at my age  smile

Oh and I'll be learning all different ways to draw too! In September sometime... But yeah  big grin Oh oh and also... I'm Hated. 0_o; By a girl I've never said more than three words too. Oh except 'Hi, how's it going?' So it's either a jealousy thing OR I somehow hurt her feelings, somehow 0_o; God I hate high school. Girls are so trivial *shakes head*

Oh and I have a new picture up! Soon-ish... After I do all my homework *blush*

So we'll just celeberate "happy first football game marching in highschool...marching band" day... What? It's not cheesy! I'm so glad you're taking classes to learn new ways to draw.

Erk, Kim Possible again! One was a gift for someone on another site(Ron) and the other was pointlessly fun ^^

Okay, here's two pictures I did with my Tria markers :3 I've had em for about 3 months now, only used em a few times. First one is of Kim with retro hairstyle ehehe... Big in other words and Ron as a chocomaholic XD I didn't have a yellow, and didn't realize that till I got to that point >.<; But, that aside I love how he turned out.

Yay for long a** comments :P

That's an excellent first try! I haven't posted, but have been lurking in here and admiring for a while - your stuff is just gorgeous.

As an objective observer (who can't do any kind of computer-based art  wink), the eye there could be a little larger/wider agross the face - just in terms of proportions - at the moment the eye is as wide as the nose, which when it's in-line with it makes it look a little strange.

Great picture though - keep up the good work!
