My Digital Coloring Improvement

A month ago, I was searching for random tutorials that could help me to color again better using now Photoshop CS6 since I was stuck using the wrong tools known as Dodge, Burn and Sponge tools. Was frustrated because I wanted to color so bad and wanted to color on the same day and have it ready too instead of 3 days fixing the "effects" of shadow and light. I found a good video on YouTube with the explanation on Spanish and managed to learn the trick since I use the program on American English. :D I'm very happy to be back drawing and coloring better thanks to the tutorials videos!!!♥

Here's the video:
After watching the video and giving it a try this is how my chibi me turned out:
Three years ago, I made my hubby's bestfriend his chibi, I wasn't good at drawing chubby chibis until a friend gave me a reference and for this year I looked again at the drawing saying to myself I wasn't satisfied with it. I redesigned his chibi and colored it after the first with my chibi me. :D Decided to have fun by using the "Draw this again!" meme to compare them:

Anipan New Art Community!

:D Here's my Anipan ID #6595 using the same old account name from here, let's stalk each other like we do here. hahaha :lmao:

Yeah, as you can see I joined too the madness of Anipan on it's release yesterday and you're maybe wondering what is about. Anipan is an art community like DeviantART and Pixiv at the moment is on beta test before it's full release on September if I'm not wrong, there are few people from here that hates the site and I don't like the too plain layout like Manga Bullet and here (another art community besides DeviantART where Anipan campaign started everything from there), but it still have a few bugs and I know it will be better later on.

I'm not going to abandon this site and my account, I want to do the same thing I did with my Manga Bullet account just post my chibis drawings, anime drawings and manga pages, etc, here I can show my photos, screenshots from World of Warcraft including WoW art too and random art besides chibis stuff, etc. Like I'd said a multiple times that I post my finished art too on Tumblr, cosplays, events and art in progress, etc.

Old Chibi's Book Where I Learned to Draw Them! o(^-^)o♥

    Welcome to the fantastic world of Chibis and furry characters!  Chibis are the adorable tiny people that are the hottest, new sensation of Manga.  Chibis are cheerful, adorable, naughty, mischievous, excitable, and some times are evil, in a word, just plain fun.  From Japan to America then to Puerto Rico and all across the world, everyone loves Chibis!

    Chibis have exaggerated proportions that make them squeezable and cute.  But Chibis aren't only for kids.  There are Chibis of all varieties, in all roles and genres of Manga.  There are Chibis teenagers, fairies, witches, schoolgirls, fantasy fighters, space commanders, mermaids, athletes, evil geniuses, devils, angels, reapers--and everything in between!  I'd a book how to make Chibis that guide me, step-by-step, through development of all types of Chibis characters, and gives me the tools to invent my own chibis like my Chibi angel and my boyfriend's Chibi demon.  I'd learned how to infuse my own Chibis with personality, and how to draw authentic costumes for them.

    And as a special feature that I'd found in the book, includes an exclusive look at the newest trend out of Japan: the super-stylized Chibi.  This eye-catching, authentic Japanese style is a must-have for any Manga artist who wants to stay on top of his or her game.

    Also it turns my attention to the incredibly popular subject of Chibi-style monster, which are small, yet powerful creatures.  These creatures often work with their human pals to defeat the bad guys--and in some cases--the good guys!  I'd learned how these characters are often based on simple animals and inanimate objects.  I'd also learned how to draw the super powers and special effects that make Chibi-style monsters such stars.

    I love so much this book because also fetures furry characters, which are sometimes know as "anthros" (short for anthropomorphic").  The most popular of these Manga characters is the famous cat-girl.  Cat-girls are attractive characters who retain their human posture but also have cat-like physical traits.  There are several types of cat-girls.  Some look more human, while others look more like cats.  I'd learned how to draw them in a way that maintains the character's attractiveness and appeal.  Cat-girls can also be drawn in Chibi-style, which is demonstrated in the book.  They're used in many different genres of Manga, including girls' comics, boy's comics, and science-fiction.

    But that's not all!  Also covers the popular technique of "super-deforming" ordinary Manga characters into Chibis.  These super-deformed Chibis are used by many of the top Japanese Manga artist to make wisecracks about comic book panels.  This is a hilarious section, filled with jokes that are sure to generate laughs.  Don't miss it!

    Chibis are like puppy dops--people me;t when they see them (XD like me).  Whether you are drawing them to tug at the heartstrings, or get some laughs, you'll have a great time working with the book and between many others that helps you make Chibis, Anime, Manga, etc just like I did.  Have fun!

o(^_^)o My favorite books I love to use!♥

About Me {English Version} & Sobre Mi {Versión Español}~♥

This is me.
Me with my three loves.

My name is Annie Linnette, I'm 26yrs old and I live in Puerto Rico. I may not look like a model or be one, but I'm sweeter. I enjoy the small things in life and I try not to complain about much depending the situation. I'm pretty much random at some point. I love drawing and play MMO games I also play videogames including old school games and my whole ideal is drawing Chibis and other stuff lol. I speak 2 simple languages, English and the official language Spanish, and enjoy them very much, but I would like to learn other languages besides the ones I already know. I'm simple yet complicated, but then again I'm a girl (lmao). I love to spend time with my friends, family, my little son, my baby daughter and my husband of course. I don't follow social standards like others do, I follow my own path and style that's why a few people hates me. :P I like honest people, if you're not honest with me then go away and be happy ^_^. I'm cool, shy, funny, happy, realistic, weird, random and don't act my age sometimes (as usual). Art is my hobby and addiction plus doing commissions, drawings for my friends and for my own personal use. My only 3 love ones for me is my husband, our son and our daughter, I feel very proud to have them in my life. I love Anime and Manga a lot, and I also LOVE Chibis. Music is my life and inspiration for drawing so I'm always carrying my iPod with me when it comes to artwork. I consider everyone's honest opinion and style of life. I'm not racist. I dislike gossip and materialist people who thinks having lots of money are better than other people. I'm brutally honest and open to what people have to say in general and in some case I speak the true to the person when they don't listen or think they're totally right knowing they're doing it wrong depending the case. I enjoy others opinions besides mine... If you want to know more about me ASK cause I don't harm people's computers, unless you want me to harm your computer with a really BAD virus... joking ;). Enjoy my stuff. Comment me (I always comment back). I would prefer you send me COMMENTS cause I rarely reply to my INBOX messages. Enjoy your day! ^_^
*Spanish Version / Versión Español:
Mi nombre es Annie Linnette, tengo 25 años de edad y vivo Puerto Rico. No me veo como una modelo o serlo, pero soy dulce. Disfruto de las pequeñas cosas de la vida y trato de no quejarme mucho dependiendo la situación. Soy como que un poquito aleatoria en algún punto. Me gusta dibujar diferentes cosas y jugar juegos multijugadores en línea incluyendo videojuegos y mi ideal es dibujar chibis (caricaturas Japonesas o como bien se conocen el anime) entre otras cosas más (jejeje). Hablo dos simple idiomas, Inglés y mi idioma oficial el Español. Rara a la vez tiendo a ser un poco complicada, pero pues soy una chica (jajaja). Adoro pasar la mitad de mi tiempo con mis amistades, familiares, mis hijos y mi esposo. Yo no sigo los estándares sociales como otros hacen, yo tengo mi propio camino y estilo, por eso algunas personas tienden a odiar uno por esa razón :P. Me gusta que las personas sean honestas conmigo, pero sino eres uno de ellos, mejore vete y que seas feliz ^_^. Soy chévere, tímida, divertida, alegre, realista, extraña, aleatoria y a veces no actuó ser de mi edad (como siempre). Mi arte es mi pasa tiempo favorito haciendo comisiones, dibujos a mis amistades y para mi uso personal. Mis tres únicos amores en la vida son mi esposo, nuestro hijo y nuestra hija, me siento feliz de tenerlos en mi vida. Me gusta ver anime y leer manga muchísimo, y además AMO los chibis (son los dibujos Japoneses más adorables). La música es mi vida y mi inspiración para dibujar por eso ando con mi iPod cuando se trata de dibujar algo nuevo o seguir trabajando en algún proyecto. Mi iPod tiene una variedad de música que disfruto escucharla y siempre buscando canciones nueva mas reciente e incluso las canciones viejas que haya escuchado. Me gusta salir y visitar muchos lugares ademés de visitar a la familia o a las amistades con mi esposo y mi hijo. Yo considero cada uno de las personas su honesta opinión y estilo de vida. NO soy racista. Odio los chismes y a la gente materialista que se cree que teniendo mucho dinero son mejores que lo demás. Soy brutalmente honesta y de mente abierta cuando las personas tienen algo que decir en general y en algunos casos tiendo a decirles la verdad a las personas cuando no escuchan porque piensan que están en lo correcto dependiendo el momento. Disfruto de las opiniones de las demás personas además de la mía propia… Si quieren saber más de mi, PREGUNTAME en confianza porque yo NO hago daño a las personas, al menos que desees que le envíe a tu computadora un VIRUS bien malo… jajaja, es solo una broma ;). Disfruten de la música. Dejen sus comentarios (yo les responderé). Si prefieren pueden enviarme un mensaje en privado. ¡Que tengan un buen día! ^_^
