    *has finally found some time to call out request reference

    Can you draw a Haunter in this pose? With the curls in the hair exaggerated as you deem fit.

    @ someone under the sea, I will probably get started on it tomorrow. What is that thing in her/his? hand? Is it for curling hair?
    @ princess, your welcome :) I lurv cute cuddly puppies :)
    on a side note, I have been working on my MAC submission for the past couple of days and will probably continue working on it for the next week, so I probably won't get around to coloring Ganesh anytime soon.
    To give this post some substance, here is something I started for the HGSS in game tiers article but I am probably going to end up redoing the whole thing:

    Actually it's an ad for some mascara, but you're welcome to turn it into a giant hairbrush or something.

    borrowed the line art style and shading from some of Nasty Jungle's work. Of course she does it better.

    Hi!
    I really enjoy your various styles you show in your artwork and how they are different from each other. My favorite artwork by you is the Scolipede card; the background is very textured and with that texture it gives it more of an actual card vibe. My only advice for that is to pay attention where you coloring it because many of the coloring goes past the lines. If possible, I would go and erase the excess coloring to make it look neater.
    Also I think what you can improve on is your lineart; I find that many of your lines to be wobbly and jagged at times. My advice for perfecting lineart is to have some patience, keeping the hand steady and keep practicing and never give up. Don't be stressed if you don't perfect it on the first go; lineart is the most difficult thing to master in art (well, in my opinion at least; I still struggle with keeping my lines clean though). Also for your starters, some of the cross hatching is outside of the lines instead of inside of them, giving it more of a sloppy look. I would work slower and be more cautious when you are cross hatching.
    Hope I helped and keep up the good work!

    oooh nice eyes , blue. I'll be sure to fix those spots up on the scolipede card before it goes final. :) and I thank you muchly for the comments and suggestions, I will definitely try to work on the straight lines for line art...it is a hard thing but taking it slower oughta help like you said :) and I go really fast on the cross hatching so I'll just have to be a bit more patient :P Thanks pal for the good words!
    heres some more guys, blue water! :)

    Nice.

    I would suggest maybe not continuing the lines like you're doing there, otherwise you get that trembly feel to it. What I would do is do quick and sharp lines, and if they don't look right, just click Ctrl+z, and try and get that feel to it. And parts of the lineart that are outside of what you want the lineart to look like you can just erase steadily.

    Hope that helps you man! I really like that liepard too. :3
