Hes pritty cool but its hard to make out his cloths and his outline cause of the dark colors. for wthis shouldnt you use brighter colors to show what he looks like and in comice darken it for the right lighting?
If you're using it just for fun, I would advise gimp, but if it gets serious, I would advide to use photoshop for a simple reason; most companies use it and as much as it looks like gimp, it has its differences.
I decided to get the new photoshop when I realised this is not just a hobby.
Anyone from wacom. I used for a long time a intuos, which fits perfectly fine if you're starting, or maybe a bamboo, which is cheaper. If you live in USA, tablets will be a lot cheaper than here in Brazil. I'm using now a cintiq 12 I bought in USA.
I understand, and in all honesty, am right there with you. But the artist does have his reasons. At least, for the dragoness anyways. Her design was rather complicated and it's trimming down, although somewhat painful, may have been necessary. The male on the other hand... Well I guess the artist just didn't think he looked cool enough. I'm not sure what to say though. After all, it was the dragoness' design that made it stand out to me amongst all the other comics, but hey. What can you do? The artist has the right to make changes, and sometimes stuff just happens. So I'll take what I can get.
I know, I can't realy do much against it other than voicing my oppinion and hope it gets heard. (Not that it will realy affect anything afterwards...)
And I'm sure other people have done dragonesses also, but this one I found standing out not because of her alone, but due to the great diference between Librarian cat and her. Now he looks like every other character used in these situations.
Exactly! I remember telling this to my friends all the time. It's like a romance between these two completely different characters was just waiting to happen it's just that no one ever bothered to do it. I was really looking forward to seeing how their dynamic would pan out seeing as it was bound to be interesting (I mean just look at them!) but now... not so much. It's nice to know someone else shares my feelings on the matter though. If only the artist could do the same... Oh well. His vision after all.
