My OC Lynx in her Halloween costume, dressed as a bat! The pose was a reference from the web. And yes, I have quite a few OCs with Halloween costumes. I couldn't help myself, they all wanted costumes, so.

      Oh thank you!! No actually, I drew this with pencil and colored it on SAI!! I WISH, I could do all that with watercolor and markers. Haha. When I took Fashion Design, I had to use watercolors and I SO sucked. Haha. So yeah, wish I could color with them and the markers as well. I still can't manage them either!!

      Well the rendering is deliciously smooth--watercolors are so finicky!! I haven't tried art markers cos they are so expensive and I don't wanna waste money on something that I won't like! Dry media for me, for now! I love how solid the linework on this piece is; and all your pieces, really! There must be a trick to it cos I have a hard time getting my lines clean enough that the layers underneath look okay.

      You are totally right! Markers are to expensive, like over the top. I only got one pack of COPIC markers and since I don't know how to use them, they are resting nicely on my desk haha. Well on my case, the lines are created by a tool from SAI. I don't know what it's called tho. But yeah, using that tool is how I get my lines done. If I would draw the lines like I would do when I ink with pen and paper, the lines wouldn't come out as nicely as they do with the tool I use on SAI. I have tried it, using the tablet pen over the lines, but it takes way to much time and it doesn't like nice to me.

      Huh...ya know, I never even thought of that! I always do the line art on paper, then trace it over on the tablet or scan it in and dork with the thresholds till I have clean lines to paint under but then again, I am new to the ways of the tablet! I think I will tuck that idea into my brain for later...thanks! ;-)

      Oh your welcome!! I learned to use SAI and GIMP by searching videos on YouTube!! They helped me loads!!! I mainly searched for videos giving tutorials on how to color line-art on the software with the tablet. Because I don't really like drawing with SAI and the tablet. I rather draw by hand and color with the software. Easier. For me anyway!! Glad I could help tho!! But yeah, when ever ya can, check out videos on YouTube. It is much help!! :DD

      There are those videos again...I really ought to look into those! I am so old-fashioned...when I don't know how to do something I run to the library and get books about it! I am so old-fashioned!! XD Well, next time I have some goof-off time I will check out some vids...and return my CP book to the library!

      Hahahaha, aw, sowwy I couldn't be that much help that I could keep ya from watching videos. But yeah, they are the best way to go. I don't know how to explain much either, so that doesn't help either I'm afraid.

      Oh, no sweat! I didn't expect ya to hand me all the tips and answers I need! If you could do that, you'd be some kinda guru getting paid bucko bucks and would charge me for advice!

      If I were a guru, I would say (alla "Kung Fu Panda"):

      "The past is history, the future is a mystery but today is a gift...that is why they call it 'the present!'"
