I am trying a new style. Let me know if you think this one is better... Comments are really appreciated. I know it's not perfect, but I actually like the way this one came out. It was a lot of fun, anyway. Personally, I like this style better for me.

I suck at backgrounds. I am thinking of trying this with a different background later, I was really just playing around with effects and things. XD

This is my first time drawing in this style, and I could not have done it without my tablet. It took me about 2 or 3 hours. And uhm... apparently I like drawing sparkly things.

      Thank you so much! Heart It was the first one I did in this style, so I'm still working on changing a few things until I find what works for me... XD

    I think it's alright, but the lineart is a little scratchy to me. Are you trying for a pencil edge? OR and inked edge? If you want a pencil edge, I suggest not making it black and white, but keeping it gray scale, and putting the colour on a separate layer. If you want and inked style, the scratchy look can work, but you'll want to even it out with some scratchy tone styles too. That all IMHO. Hope it helps ^^

      Thank you, I appreciate the honest feedback. Smile I'm still working on trying to develop my style. I haven't drawn that much at all, with traditional or digital so I know it shows that I'm a beginner. But I'm trying to get better and develop the style a bit more.

      I'm not sure what style I should go for. This one was more of an experiment to see if I could do things differently, because I had done some art right before this that I really wasn't happy with at all. Thanks so much. I'll keep trying until I get it right.

        Go for what ever you like the most even if it isn't the most popular cause you WILL get better at it. Everyone starts off as an underdog. I hid my art for ages cause I was still finding my grounds and for ages I thought I was crap but drew cause I loved doing it. Then one day I did an art badge at scouts and floored everyone. It's all practice, cause I tell you, I did not start off gifted like some artists do XD Lol. It's a passion Smile Enjoy it and you'll want to get better. In the end, don't fret too much over it- k? ^^

          Thank you. I understand what you mean. I think my art has come a pretty long way. Sorry for taking so long to get back to you...

          Art is a passion, and it's really important to always keep trying no matter what. I totally agree.
