Is one of your best works I guess :D

I really love all in it; shades, colors, expressions, shapes...

EVERYTHING! :D

Even I guess the bright color was ideal for your style of drawing these kind of characters, because gives the imserrion of strenght and braverly :)

Thanks Manuel! It is my fave piece right now, I'm just so happy how it came out. Everyone turned out pretty good, which is hard in group pics.

Glad you like the bright colours, I'm obsessed with making things bright lol. I'm gonna do more painting real soon.

What did you have to edit? You are so good at shading and highlights. Really stands out with the watercolors

I made the colours brighter because they come out very dull due to the scan and my shitty paint.

Also I accidentally flicked black paint all over Belladonna's face. Primal Scream So I had to get all that off.

I'm glad you like it and thanks for saying I'm good at shading!

Yeah i heard scanning is bad for copics too. But i can't take a decent pic to save my life.

And why'd you do that? Lol. Sorry that's not funny. Glad you could fix it

I don't know why I did it! I was dipping the brush and I pulled it out of the water too fast and all this greyish paint water spattered all over her poor face.

With copics you'd need to do the same procedure, change the brightness contrast values til it's nice and bright. I do that with all my work and with sketches often sharpen as well.

I've fooled around with brightness and contrast and i can't ever get it right.

I push the brightness down and the contrast up as a rule. With sketches I'll do it twice. My procedure is to make it darker than it needs to be, fill the parts that are supposed to be light with white paint fill, colourise, then push the contrast way up (hope that makes sense). That's how I get that really bright look.

I can't get the settings on my camera right. Not to mention it seems like i always finish drawings at night. Like i probably will tonight lol. I know what you mean it just seems like my pics are too dark to begin with
