I get the question often as to what size canvas I draw on. I’ve answered in responses to explain the basics numerous times, but I’m going to write a bit more detailed response so all can understand and reference.

(I’ll use my Dirty Pair piece as the guinea pig for this explanation.)

Doodled this even if my tummy is aching.
I love putting this little goof into trouble.

Check out the latest DidYouKnowGaming episode, Zelda Part 4!

Click here to watch on YouTube.

Well… I would have never thought that Midna had actual dialogue!

It’s kind of awesome to think that they did add voice acting in the recent Zelda games. I’m all for it as long as it sounds like gibberish!

My little windy sweetheart.I present you Mya Frost, one of the four wind daughters of Father Winter.
Been messing around with colors to look for something that suits her. And sadly, there are some details missing… I need to keep my sketchbook near me. Drawing by memory is not a good thing for me.
She’s also a reworked character I had before, which I thought needed some work as her attire did not felt right with her joyful personality and cute shyness.
Enjoy!

I haven’t seen this video cross my dash yet… but it’s a dozen times better than the IGN one, so you’ve all gotta see it.  =D

It’s kind of funny… I trust Platinum to make an awesome game, but the IGN video didn’t look like what I was expecting.  This one does.  One of the game’s creators is playing, and the game looks so much cooler when someone who knows what they’re doing is at the controls.  XD

They’ve got water and air tornadoes.  Massive area-of-effect earthbending attacks.  That waterbending machine gun shield Tarrlok used in Book 1.  The variety of bending moves is fantastic, and the last firebending finisher they show off is hilariously brutal in the way one might expect from Korra.

And, because they spend so much time talking about the game, you get to see the animations they added for when the player leaves Korra standing there, and they’re nicely in-character too.  She starts stretching if you leave her there for too long, and each bending style has its own waiting stance.

By the way, they confirmed that the game is meant to be canon to the show as a Book 2-Book 3 interquel.  It’ll definitely be something to pick up when it comes out!

woooooooooooooow… @w@

This looks amazing!

Doodles from several weeks ago. Promised to post ‘em over here.

What if these guys were more badass? I think it’d be pretty rad. I might finish one of these later on. Who knows.

That is pretty awesome!

Trying out something else with shading.
I kinda like it since it gives texture to the color.I’ll still try to see it compared to cel shade with colored outlines but I ain’t disliking this at all.
I think I found my favorite brush.

I've always admired how quickly you draw amazing things, so thank you for that advice post!! Can you share the settings you use to go from 200 to 300dpi? Or do you go from 100 straight to 300 when you know your work will be printed?

robscorner:

Cheers! I go straight to 300 DPI when I’m going to color if it’s designated for print. 

For 200 to 300 DPI, just resize in increments of 50 at Bicubic Smoother (250DPI, Bicubic Smoother > 300DPI, Bicubic Smoother).

Hello, I read your "About me" selection to make sure you haven't done this tutorial before I asked. I'm having major problems with side view lips. My lips always end up looking like The Simpsons lips. (Google it if you don't know the show to know what I'm talking about) It's Terrible because I can't seem to understand how to draw them on both Males and Females. Can you please help guide me on how to draw them? (If you have time)

Omg dear this is a really difficult thing you are asking to me because I’m not a lips expert ;w; I’ll do my best! 
I even did gifs OHOH it’s the first time, I hope they explains better than my writing.
Lips are not ‘round’ as simpsons one, quoting you. They have more like a smoothed triangular aspect, like a cone with a round tip.
Of course it depends the style you are using when drawing lips, most anime-manga/cartoonish styles uses just a line for the lips and I do use a more complicated but still simple style for the lips I draw. 
For example, I do draw the lower part of the cupid’s bow, I don’t think it has a proper name, so I’m showing you:
image

When I’m drawing and coloring males, I don’t color the lips because my style isn’t realistic so I don’t bother. That’s why the cupid’s bow isn’t showing (and in non-realistic styles I find it really annoying if it’s only drew, like in certain mangas, for example)
 image

Time to show you how I draw lips. 
First example, the normal smiling side view lips
image

As you can see the lips are little curves and it’s not necessary that the side lips have to touch the line. Also, look at the third arrow, the line between the lips is more curved because of the under cupid’s bow. 

An opened mouth is different, since the inside of the mouth or the teeth divide the lips:

Normal closed mouth, no smiling:

I am sorry, I hope it helps ;__; I didn’t even know where to start explaining! Anyway you can try to search on deviantart for more accura tutorials ;v;

Finally, a get my head out of my ass and start this bloody commission!
Took me forever but we’re getting there!
