Embarrassing enough, I've been illustrating for dA since 2007 using organized frames for people and animals. Since been constantly trying to reform my methods.
I figured that if all was in proportion,perspective, and pleasing to the eye, the images using anime conventions was irrelevant.
1-3 done from 2007-2009 with lineart & coloring done in OpenCanvas
4 and 5 done from 2009 with lineart in Manga Studio and coloring in OpenCanvas.
ps. I solely used Manga Studio because of its ability to correct lines.
