You may remember this as a sketch for :iconshadow-the-echidna:

Well of course he went ahead and coloured it like he nearly always does. I think it's fair to say, he's getting better every single time he does.

Well, it's very good to hear that I'm getting better at it. :)

Yeah, definitely.

If I may offer my advice I think learning to taper your lines (have them end in nice points instead of club-like ones) would be a good next step.

Unfortunately the best way I know how to do this is to zoom right in and erase the offending parts of the line with a small eraser. (Or using the ink tool in gimp, but that's not always reliable)

Thanks again for the advice.

Yeah coloring is usually kinda a pain, I've found that separating it into layers helps if you have the program for it.

Getting the shading right is always a pain though, I usually mark the exact R G B mix from a print-screen of whatever reference I have available.

Good job on this though,

That is true, and having a program with the magic wand tool helps as well. *I use Paint Shop Pro 7, as that's the program that I'm very used to.*

And shading is a headache for me to figure out, which is why I tend to stick with flat colors.

Thanks, I try my best with them. Of course, I got some good/great advice from Barn-Flakes to make the lines better than what I was doing before.

Ah yes, I use flash even though that's not really what it's used for. The downside being it's not very good for "brush" type lines or more smooth colors.

Yeah, I figure if I ink and flat color it, then it's far better than not. As for the rest, I'll let the color ppl do the precise colors.

Barn flakes definitely has high standards of quality, I took in a few useful lessons on that front as well.

Mm, that is true. Some programs don't have the necessary tools for things that you would like to use, either built in or with add-ons.

True on that as well.

That's good to hear.

Yeah, although flash is mainly meant for animations it still comes with enough good drawing tools and features for it to be a solid inking program.

However, when drawing a program from scratch I would say it's probably not the best.

Anyway, should be interesting to eventually see and do more colorations.

Good talking with you.
