    Nice for first tries, I think the frag banner could use a border along the frags and a bevel, but not bad, not bad at all. Though isn't that Extroph's style?

    Those all look really awesome, nice work on the userbars

    I also agree with what FrostStorm said about the frags, they would really pop then.

    I can't figure out how to do outlines on the frags on GIMP, or bevels!
    And yeah, that's Extroph's style, but Shadow uses it and he doesn't care

    EDIT: Added an outline :O

    I'm just adding to everyone else who's commented but it looks much better with the borders. Jut make sure you remove the black line you've got going around the edge of the whole picture to properly show the gaps and you're good to go.

    If you want to outline irregularly-shaped images, it's easy. Duplicate the layer of the item you want to outline. On the lower layer, right click the item in the Layers Toolbox and click "Alpha to Selection". This will select all the visible items in that layer. Go up to Edit > Grow by 1 pixel. This will enlarge the selection. Fill the selection with any color of your choice (in this case, black) by pressing [Control] [Hyphen OR Plus Sign] [Comma] at the same time. This shortcut will use the Foreground color. Pressing [Period] instead of [Comma] will use the Background Color. Alternatively, you can fill the selection by going to Edit > Fill with FG/BG Color. When you've filled the selection, press [Control] [Shift] [A] to deselect everything. You're done! Well, mostly.

    If you deselect the Eye Icon on the Layers Toolbox, you'll find that instead of an outline, you've made a solid silhouette and put it behind the image. Most of the time, I don't really care about this because the image I want is on top of the silhouette anyway, but if this bothers you, there's a fix. Go to the upper layer (the non-silhouette) and Alpha to Selection. Now that this is selected, activate the lower layer while the selection is still in effect. Once the lower layer is activated, simply go to Edit > Clear to delete this "unnecessary" space. Now you're free to move this bottom layer anywhere you want and it won't cover up your original image.

    Keep in mind that when you're doing an outline, you'll need a few extra pixel spaces around your original image or else the outline will be cut off. I'm good with GIMP, any more questions you need, I'll try to answer.

    And nice work on the outline, btw. Not sure if you did it the hard way with the paintbrush. And I still see some unneeded black outline on the non-fragmented areas, so clean that up.

    It's nice to see all of these creative juices flowing today! I finally uploaded all of my sketches from art, so I think I'll showcase all of them to you guys.

        Spoiler:- Ears:


    Alright, I'm not a big fan of these. I feel like the eraser marks at the tips of the ears kind of ruined them, and the shading isn't all that great. Though, I think it's a good example of how ears can be done

        Spoiler:- Eyes:


    I love drawing eyes, I feel like they're my forte honestly. Though, I do have problems when it comes to eye lashes and under eye lashes. Also, pairs of eyes are really hard for me to draw.

        Spoiler:- Mouth:

    These were some of the most irritating things I've had to draw, personally. It took me a couple of hours just to get the noses and lips in the right places for just the female. I said screw it when I did the male mouth, so it's not that good...

        Spoiler:- Lips:


    Ahh, the lips. These are really fun to draw, in my personal opinion. They have so many different shading and lighting you can do for them. Also, I drew a boat as well trying to salvage one of my lips.

        Spoiler:- Nose:

    Rounding out my drawings with the noses, which I thought were really hard to draw. THe trick with drawing noses is that i's pure shading, no hard lines should really be in the nose, unlike other body parts like the eyes. Though, I really like the bottom one and how it turned out.

    So guys, what do you think of my drawings? If anyone else has done stuff like this I really think it would be a wise idea to post them here, I'm sure we would all love to see that. Also, it would be a really good break from Graphical art...

    @ Lost: Good work! Those are looking really good. The light direction is in the right direction and it really shows that youve been working hard to make sure they look realistic. Keep doing what you are doing you are definitley on the right track. the mouth with the teeth looks a little, funny i guess, but thats ok i understand what you were trying to convey these are great practice and study sketches i like them. Overall, though, you are shading a little too dark. otherwise, i love it. I do alot of shading and traditional art, you should check out some of my black and white graphite stuff. Shading and detail are my life Good work!

    @Lost Good job, they are pretty good. It gets pretty tricky when doing natural lashes, just be careful that they don't end up looking like falses. Be careful with the philtrum (area between the upper lip and nose) it's best to rely on shading to create that, but the lips look really good. Also be careful when doing teeth, they tend to come out looking like veneers, I really like the bottom left lips. You are absolutely right about noses, use as few lines as possible it's all shading, they look pretty good. I agree with Rexxaroo you are shading a bit too dark, but otherwise they look good. Keep up the good work.

    @Blood Red Absol They are really cute

    So far it is nice, though the shading is probably still to subtle and not quite there for my taste. I always thought that shading should bring out the colors and not just darkened primary color, and for the cute and simple chibi it is best to have a some what bubble, bright and vibrant shading to emphasize on their cuteness, that is what I think. You should try experimenting more with colors when you shade, don't just use a single darkened shading fore said your color u v u

    Also I probably have said this a million times before, but lay off the bases already buddy lol keep using bases will get you nowhere, seriously >v>;;


    ha, on the other side, have a little doodle I made in 15 minutes



    I'm Arsenal fan mmkay >v> this is just me having fun with pencil/crayon style xD

    lol somehow your reason sound like an excuse for not doing homework >v>

    I never had a sketch book to tell the truth, I draw on whatever surface I had on hand whenever I have the urge to draw, be it my math text book or even the surface of the toilet paper holder lol. Ideal is like rain, they fall whenever so be there to catch it and put it down on paper if it come, that is what I think. It might slip away if you don't. You shouldn't just limit yourself on drawing just on your sketch book >v>;;;

    Are you saying that art can't be nice if it is not on sketchbook ? This thing is chalk drawing on sidewalk, and if it is not 'nice' then I have no ideal what is http://img.weburbanist.com/wp-conten...9023c64d_o.jpg >v>;;;; my dear, if you are going to limit yourself as an artist, it would be a horrible waste of ideals and talents. Experimenting and trying new things is extremely important to develop your artistic skills, to my opinion. However, if it is your choice made out of pure stubbornness to not to, it is understandable and respected that a few individuals do not desire advice from others and prefer to execute matter with their personal preference.

    ... Or you could just, get a new sketchbook lol >v>;;;;;;

    I've done a lot of drawing recently. I even dusted offs tablet and used that. But didn't make much worth showing.

    oh and the chalk on sidewalk would be good if the link worked....
