I've been really curious as to which programs you use and how you colour your stuff. It's just so clean and gorgeous!
For digital works I mostly use Paint tool SAI for like… everything =P
I do use Photoshop CS2 for edits and some stuff Sai don’t have, but to color is very rare. I do sometimes color backgrounds on PS, but I used it the most back when I did graphics for old ladies’ games which I escaped from now so I use it mostly for edit in the end of a picture.
How I color depends on the picture, but it’s nothing so rare you won’t see in any other person helping actively with tutorials and shit xD. Talking about colors, I think what makes a good color job is mostly the colors you use, I’m of course, still learning, but trying stuff is always the best idea. Sorry if this isn’t very helpful, I’m entirely clueless when it comes to explain how I do shit xD
If you find a picture someone did with similar almost exact color palette than yours AND from the same subject?
It’s easier to prove a recolor, or a tracing (for some people don’t, they won’t see a tracing ever ins stuff that are crystal clear) but what happens when it’s an entire color palette. And I mean, color-picking-it-on-PS-and-it’s-a-match same color or very close.
I encountered myself with this issue countless times and what I could do at the time was zip it. If you say anything, you’re a douche, if you don’t say anything and someone points it in wait for an action, you’re a douche. We can’t claim color palettes, but it’s still effy and makes me think is it good….bad…or just plain stupid to do so? I mean come on, learn your colors at least.
Did you have similar experience with the subject? Share it =)

616 Followers (Pic a character ad I'll draw it) Celebration
Well you would say, “that’s not much” “My blog has more followers”. Then good for you!!. But these are MY 616 followers!! Which count more than my more than 6,000 on DA because I really get followed there by like… 60 xD
So in celebration to that, propose a character!. The character must be one from a serie, comic or whatever, no OCs. Because the games goes like this, the character that I get more proposals of, is the winner. So you better read what people asks, you might want the same char and add a vote on it. Please try to add the comment here, instead of the ask box. If for some reason you can’t and in fact you’re following then ask box it is.
Also, if this is a failure….then it is xD I can’t make you want me to draw something in appreciation for following me, but it would be nice. I also noticed like over 100 of my last followers follows Homestruck which got me curious and I might need to read it someday
I’ll give it till Wednesday (GMT-3) for suggestions! And obviously, followers only!
