DeadSkullFace Featured By Owner May 18, 2011
whenever i draw in one continous line (like that circle thing at the end) i end up making the line way to dark, because halfway through the shpae i panic lmao
ShyGirl0-0 Featured By Owner May 17, 2011

I really want to try to draw your art style... Is that okay with you?
a-scarf-for-kitsu Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2011
I love how you don't doubt yourself about your drawing skills. :3 You're always so positive, whereas some people say 'this drawing sucks' just to get attention. You truly are a real artist. :huggle:

Very good tutorial.Thanks you for sharing kub.
BobbyC87 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2009
This is a well laid-out tutorial, easy to understand and helpful. :)
Cappippuni Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2009
Your tutorials are so amazing!
I think this tutorial will help me for my next artworks...
My drawing technique is very ugly (I don't have watercolors, so, I use only standard colorpencils and, some modifications with Photoshop...), but, your work inspire me so much for creating new art!
Thanks a lot for sharing your techniques!
Hmm... Maybe I will try to make a funny character based on this tutorial for my next artwork...
Good idea?

So, keep up this very, oh! very amazing work!
I love your gallery so much!
You are the most greatest artist I've never seen on the Internet! ^-^
Raindropmemory Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2009   Digital Artist
Yeah, that'll be good!:)
^^ Keep practicing and you'll be better and better.
Cappippuni Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2009
Thanks a lot!
I'm very happy to see your comment! ^^

This encourage me to make new artworks and, maybe, an iconset (I started to make my own handmade iconset with colorpencils some months ago... Maybe I will release my "Lemonade at Work" iconset soon... Good idea?)...

Hmm... I will take my colorpencils, a sheet, listening musics on my iPod for more ideas, reading your tutorials and your technique, and let's go for a new artwork!

your art inspires me so much! It's not common to see art that makes you truly happy just looking at it but your art does that for me. Thanks for sharing your tips! Makes me want to try it myself :)
Minnie2 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2009

adriennengo Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2009

SpookyCookie Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2009
This is a great tutorial! I wish you would do something similiar with shading :)
megatronxx Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2009
This is amazing! I thought I would never draw something but when I visited your page and saw this tutorial I was like "I have to draw now!!". You helped me so much you can't believe >_<
MasiaJoi Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2009
Thanks! :D
This helped inspire me more to improve my drawing!
boredbasilisk Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2009
this totally helped me a LOT. i was trying to draw cartoon people, and i was having a really hard time deciding what they were going to look like. when i read "pick the most outstanding part" i knew that i had to essentially plan what i wanted to make that person look like. thank you so much!
Arthemis-Pink Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I love your tutorials! They inspire me a lot!
CrazyLoveChild Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2009
Amazing tutorial! To be honest, I never really thought of the characterization of the subjects like that.

Now everytime I want to draw a cartoon like this, I'll point out key features like you mentioned!

Thank you so much =^^= ~<3
carurah Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2009
:D You have a beautifull style and I loved your tutorials!!!
I have serious dificultties in draw simple lines as you and figure out what is the real essencial part...
XoXOdexDexDeathXoX Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
What colors do you use? I saw you nostalgia tut, so I know you use color pencils for the outline, but I would really appreciate it if you could tell me what you use to color in the art? I'm a beginner and I love your work and how the colors come out smokey, yet gentle.
Raindropmemory Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2009   Digital Artist
It's watercolor. ^^
I'll try to make the tutorial in the future. =D
XoXOdexDexDeathXoX Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you! I'd really appreciate that =D
xrainfirex Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2009
Erm. Felt like writing Chinese.

It's really good! I think it'll help lotsa people because there are many bright, colourful and HELPFUL visuals. Some people learn better with visuals. And THAT is art. :)
Raindropmemory Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2009   Digital Artist
=D Oh, glad my tutorial helpful.
Thank you~! ^^:heart:
aneesah Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I think what you said about not worrying, just do it, don't hesitate really struck me. I'm an Architecture student, I don't really draw for fun (although I'd love to. It's just not a priority, I guess), but the same advice seems to apply for me too...

Thanks a bunch! :D
Raindropmemory Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2009   Digital Artist
I used to draw theatre stage plan once, and feel like I'm going to die, because everything have to precisely measured & drawn.=D
Looks like I'm not architecture type.

By the way, you have a great patience to study Architecture!:):heart:
aneesah Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Haha, I didn't think I could bear with the precise measuring and scaled drawings but I think I like it. The fact that everything needs a reason. Or else it will be even more subjective and abstract and I probably can't handle that either. :hmm:

That said, we do sometimes feel like we're going to die, every few weeks, in fact. ;P

OMG! Piggy loaf! Tasty and cute ><
Raindropmemory Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2009   Digital Artist
