did you draw this with pencil and then color in Photoshop? (for a while i thought you drew this entire thing with a mouse..)
it looks great, i cant think of anything to critique on, cept the lineart, which is the same with the Rurika picture--the lineart has more than one shade of black and grey, you need to either keep the lineart grey, or keep it black :I
then you click (and hold) on the little white, black, and grey triangles till you like the shades.
open canvas is still a really nice program for painting colors in, dunt worry ;;
the thing with open canvas is that the brushes can blend with other colors on your picture, so that it makes for smoother blended colors. What you're doing right now ish fine, maybe try mixing complete opposite colors together, or more contrasted colors together, or if you're that desperate, add reflex highlights (highlights in the shadows, sort-of)--for this pic, it's fine the way it is
lol arigato...fine is great n everything but i want my stuff to be great..guess it comes with practice huh? blecnding colours huh? okay ill give it a try! ur comments are the best thanks so much for ur help...*hugs qtae till ribs break *
