    Aight so a fair warning to those that look over my work: I only started using this program last November 19th. I will post them in order that I created them, and will be posting more to this post as I go. Please feel free to leave constructive criticism for me along with any tips and tricks you think I could make use of. Thanks in advanced!

    If you have the time, please take a moment or two to look over my World of Rothos thread.

    I only made the guy in the middle, the other two were pulled from the 'Companions' menu.

    Nice start considering you only started last night. You’ve managed to get masking down, and you haven’t done any silly mistakes that some people who are just starting out sometimes make (forgetting ears for example). Everything looks neat and thought through, which is a plus. So yeah, good start.

    Welcome to the forums. Please make sure to read the forum rules if you haven’t already and have fun posting. Feel free to ask questions if you find you need help with anything.

    Good start indeed. I’d like to see Thraxus with a background. You’re probably ready to start highlighting and shading, too. Item: Background /Shapes, second to last circle gradient with colors 1 & 3 to 0%alpha, then go dark or light with color 2 and start applying it. Cantdraw did a tutorial on ‘shine’ somewhere in the ‘how tos’ or the ‘Tips & Trix’ sections.

    Keep going!

    I read up on the first part of his tutorial earlier, but I didn’t see parts 2 and 3 yet. Am I just missing them?

    You don’t have to keep going back and adding new pictures to the same post you know. People usually do a post for each picture, or for each series of pictures if you have like a team or something.

    Very cool and original stuff you have here! Very awesome considering you only started last night. A couple things I’d say, thought.

    First of all, I think you could shade (as Herr D said). Just use the thing you used for the sword, and change the side and color of it. It’s kind of hard to explain how to do, though, so just go look around the forums to see works others have done.

    One other thing, too. You may have wanted this, but I saw that the knees were blank on the guy on The Group. To do that, just put knee pads over it (unless you wanted it, of course).

    Otherwise, the rest you’ll learn from experience (well, the knee thing you probably would have, too). Great job so far!

    Yeah I know, but I find it annoying when I try to look through other peoples projects and I have to fish through 28 pages to find them all. I try to keep them all on the same page to make them all easier to find. I could always go back and rearrange them into whatever groups I may put them in.

    The program is actually very easy to work with, time consuming but easy. But to be fair though, while I did intend to leave the character’s knees visible, it was only my second creation and I was more or less just messing around. In terms of shading.. I’m scared.

    I have never really been good with shading, usually because I can’t figure out where I need to shade. I did read the first tutorial that one guy posted about shading, but as I said earlier I haven’t found parts 2 and 3 yet.

    Oh and uh.. updated original post to include another picture: Ignastus

    Edit: And yes, I intentionally left him without a mouth 🙂
