Theme 02 - Growth

Why is this for my theme growth? Well it's because my friend on dA (~Scots-Angel) commented on my [link] [Calm Before the Storm] piece and said I was growing. With that, I realized that my next piece (which was growth), should be of random work that shows how much my art has progressed since the early ages two years ago.

For that, I dedicate this to the artist who drew it (~nyan-nyan)and ~Scots-Angel. Thankyou both in different ways.

Oh and another thankyou to *augustc4 for teaching me about curry brush. I cheated a little but I'm allowed, yes? I used mouse, after all.

Media used:
A lineart by ~nyan-nyan
Photoshop CS
Curry Brush by *augustc4
Logitech Mouse
A computer

Woooow, you're really good. I use mouse too and I have never been able to get it like that.
I thought you had a tablet though?

This picture was done before I got a tablet... but it doesn't matter now because it broke :(

Aw :(
Even so, you do a great job without it, even though it's such painstaking work.

I really like this picture. I guess somehow I missed it. O_O Anyhow it's really good. ^_^ I really like the costume design and the colors. She looks really good. I really like her expression. Good job on this! ^_^

:P It's too bad it's not my lineart. I think this was my first colored submission from lines I found in *color-me-club. I attempted the "Spicy Curry Brush" and despite the fact I didn't own a tablet yet, it worked out... sort of. Execution could have been handled better but I really could say that of all my works. Glad you like it though. I'm guessing it was lost in my "Everything" gallery after I arranged it.

Actually, I only colored this girl. I colored on photoshop. I don't know what the creator originally used to draw though.
