    Yamiloo: Pregnant Nun! Psychadelic candy color!

    Check out the latest post for the newer work.

    Most of this artwork comes from my webcomic: www.sisterclaire.com

    What a delightfully lively style! Just looking at it made me grin. Very colorful, and very smooth linework. I'd suggest practicing some anatomy, as in some pictures it looks a tad bit off. That's really the only thing I noticed though.

    Keep it up! Would love to see more samples.

    "Looking for critiques! Any help is appreciated."

    Thanks! I'm glad you like the colors, I've been trying harder lately to be very choosy about them.

    And you're right, I don't think anyone can even benefit too much from studying anatomy more. =)

    Here are some older pieces I've done in various styles and mixed media.

    The first is an oekaki sketch,
    the second and third are completely tablet/Photoshop,
    the fourth is watercolor (which digital text added in)
    the fifth is scratchboard,
    and the sixth is acrylic.

    I'm pretty terrified of using real paint. D:

    I think your art style is more suited for vector art, you should use something like corel draw for example, i say this because the lines can be seen with a little tremlbing on it and vector art allows you to have very clean and solid lines.

    www.fineart.sk has andrew loomis books for free, his book "creative illustration" has a section on how to paint, that will be usefull to give you confidence on how to paint better. Good luck, your style is really good and i can see that you are really into what you do, thats the best think of your work.

    One more thing, im not sure if you know this but if you vary the width of your lines with conscience, you can make certain parts of your drawings pop out more, so for example if you want to make a hand of your character pop out more, then by contrast of lines, by making its lines thicker, you will achieve this effect, so for things wich are just details you can have very thin lines, for things of medium importance, you can have medium thickness, and for very important things you can go full contrast of thickness.

    Actually I agree with Christian223 that you should try some vector art programs
    I think it would make suit the style in your first post nicely


    I dont have a drawing tablet so I haven't become an expert on digital painting
    But I'm pretty sure your using a smudge tool, in your most recent update
    Smudge tool I know is something you dont want to use

    This thread explains it better then I could

    Good luck with your SB

    Thanks everyone, for your thoughtful input! =D

    Christian223: Thanks, I'll check out those books! I've heard of them before. =D I've got Illustrator, and I know the basics of vector art design.

    However, it always seems to really tone down the liveliness and stiffen up my drawings. I also don't like how I can't taper lines in vectors. =/ Maybe you guys have some suggestions on that?

    JFierce: Thanks for that link! I've done a bit of digital painting before, and I'm just starting to feel less nervous about that. It's painting with real paint I'm really afraid of.

    And you're right, smudge tool is a big no-no. I only used it because I wasn't expecting that to be a final drawing, anyway. =)

    Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook!

    Your "Super Sister" cover and your Power Puff Girls comic crack me up.

    I really like the style you've got going too. Very nice and loose. It would really lend itself to animation well.
    ---
    I do wanna point out though that in your "Super Sister" cover, I think her left foot should be pointing more towards the viewer and less towards the front of the moped.

    Great stuff!

    Check out my sketchbook.

    Well I can't make much comment about technical stuff, it's not my style, but I like the idea of nuns and mayhem

    Here are a couple of videos that teach how to ink drawing with vector graphics, the result is anything but lifeless , good luck:

    Hey Yamino, thanks for the bump on my SB I'm a big fan of Arthur de Pins actually! So you hit the nail in the head there.

    I don't want to bump my SB again without posting pictures so Ill just answer your question here: I just do the flat shapes in Illustrator, then I bring them into PS to give them textures. For the brushstrokes, I just have many traditional textures scanned that I made myself, including some gouache strokes that I use for shadows sometimes.

    I agree with Christian's advice on inking in Illustrator, of course it's not the same as a good traditional inking but does the job, and lets you edit the anchors on the lines afterward too so it's quite useful. However I think that when you actually put some time in working on your lineweight like here: http://i34.tinypic.com/2j0e5v6.jpg%22 looks really good as well.

    Keep it up!

    YAY! Do you know how many few people I know who recognise the name Arthur de Pins? Far too few! Glad to hear you're a fan too. =)

    Also, have you put any of your homemade textures up for download? They look really good. =D

    As for the line variation, you guys are right, it's something I've noticed as well; I tend to ignore it when I'm working digitally, unless I'm purposefully trying to pop things. I need to use it all the time. XD;

    Blac+White first cover

    So, I tried that suggestion of using the Illustrator brush tool. I really like it! I still used Photoshop to color it though. I don't know id I'mr aly to make a complete transition to Illustrator just yet. =P

    hehe!! you have a very interesting style! I looooove the nasty cat!!! hahahahaha!!! your rendering skills seem to be the best when matching the cartony style... the more realistic ones (like the environments) are too monochrome... you need to give more variety in colors to make them more vivid and belivable... other than that you seem to have some problems finding the right values, but this is one of the hardest things to watch out wwhen painting so nevermind I have the same problems too

    bye

    Hey, have you considered learning how to use Flash? It might be something that would be suitable for you. Not to mention that those are some great drawings.

    Your tight stylised manga work is definitely your best art here - extra kudos from me, as it reminds me of Junko Mizuno without the explicitness!
