I haven't updated my journal in a while so...
Let's just share my art process because I can only come up with life stories.
BTW I use GIMP ver 2.6.11


If I'm working on digital, I tend to sketch on the computer from scratch...unless I'm bothered to scan. I use the Ink tool because line thickness variation is good. (Even if it's very subtle). Ctrl+Z and E(raser) is my friend. The mouse is my best friend. I live a sad life.
Generally all done on one layer. Because I'm lazy. I'm finished here if I'm doing traditional. Because I'm lazy.


What lineart?


-My favourite part in making digi art. Too bad I fail at explaining.
New layer under sketch. Using paintbrush tool, with default round brush, to block in base colour at 100% opacity. (Darker colour than intended...normally. Also pretty low saturation). Increase/Decrease value and increase saturation and change hue when painting shadows/highlights. (two colours at the least for both). Block on the ones closest to the base first at 70~80% opacity. Repeat with colours further away from the base colour at the same opacity. Add colours as I see fit but then I avoid adding new ones after until I decide to touch up. Reduce brush opacity to somewhere 30~50%. Colour drop like there is no tomorrow. (THAT'S RIGHT. MASH THAT CTRL BUTTON) THOUGH I make sure that the "shape" is not fully smoothed out. It's happened before and my work looks like a waxy apple minus the shine and plus the pigmentation. I like visible brushstrokes too.
No one will get this long winded explanation. Feel free to ignore this whole section.


Almost always finished at the colouring stage. Sometimes I fidget with Brightness/Contrast.I may or may not change the layer mode of the sketch.
Then instantly upload to dA/tumblr because I'm eager to infect the 'net with rainbow spew.

Irrelevant: Started watching Dangan Ronpa and loving it. (my two favourite artists are into it and i like crime/murder cases. Wiki'd it and kids killing kids so why not)
