How old is your machine. I mean my first machine is 14 years old and I used Photoshop 5.5 on it, which taught me a lot. My current machine is 6 years old and only running PS CS2. I don't know if you can find an old copy of Photoshop anymore, but I found a trick back before I got my tablet. If you learn to use vectors and the pentool you can create very smooth lines without much problem. I actually drew with a trackball using "multiple" layering, which allows you to colour without erasing your pencil lines. I'm not sure if there is a vectoring or pentool in your programs but it might be something to check out.



Photoshop pricing is way out of my league. I wanted to try out Corel Draw x6 30 day free trial but the installation application complained that my PC was not powerful enough to support x6. I'm sure there is vectoring in GIMP. I'm at the stage where I make silhouettes of different parts and reverse draw details, shades and textures. Sort of like etching on dark paper stock.

I do want to do vector graphics outside of GIMP. GIMP isn't powerful enough to use encapsulated postscript. Images are rastered and don't do well in commercial applications. I did find an inexpensive older version of Corel Draw x4 on eBay that should work with my PC. Should be getting it this week.

In the mean time, I'll be drawing my anime self in GIMP. I still use pencils, pens, charcoal on occasion. Hmmm, I might try to do my anime self in Fimo or PaperClay if I have the time. Busy getting assorted projects completed.

looks awesome, I'll give this one a shot, made this one earlier today, also I apologize in advance if the handwriting isn't viewable.

Info:
Name: Montana Phorn
Age: 19
Weapon: Fist/Feet, Anything from the environment i.e Jackie Chan, Rune Shield negates any attack around the wearer, uses Martial Arts to beat down Witches
Personality: Stoic, rarely smiles, a bit of a tsundere on the aloof side
Wish: Nothing, savvy enough to know everything comes with a catch, but only doing this to help people (like Shinji Kido from Kamen Rider Ryuki)
Soul Gem Location: under the Rune Shield
Rune Shield (Front View): creates a barrier around the wearer negating any attack that comes
Special Attack: Genbu Shield Hammer Assault (Rune Shield charges up until it glows black as creates a giant phantom image of the Rune Shield and repeatedly strike down an enemy finishing up with a physical blow with the knee strike Muay Thai style

Back story: Montana was just an average young collage man doing what most people do, hang out with his friends, avid gamer, and an otaku for anything that interest him, namely anime and manga. While he was enjoying his day off from collage, a Witches barrier appeared around his location, shocked that something like this suddenly came, he did what was logical at the time, he ran like hell as far away as possible as the Witch and her familiars chased him until a roar raced across the barrier as he saw a male his age wielding a bo-staff and nunchucks being accompanied by what looks like a cross between a cat and a rabbit as the male destroyed the Witch and her familiars in a quick and painless fashion as the barrier disappeared as though it wasn't there in the first place. Bewildered by the display, Montana asked the male his name. "My name is Kotetsu Tendou and this cat-rabbit thing here is Kyuubey. Also word of advice, don't take what he says face value, that's all I'm saying." Through Kotetsu and Kyuubey, he learned what the basics of being a Mahou Shonen or Seinen in their case was like even asking as to where the Witched came from, which was something that still stuck in his head when he was with Kotetsu for several months forming a sempai-kohai relationship that the duo had. It still bothered Montana that Kyuubey kept asking him to make a contact with him but Montana wasn't that ready to make one yet until Kotetsu was heavily injured in a Witches barrier only for him to be brutality mauled, maimed, and even eaten by the Witch. At that point, Montana finally said, "Kyuubey, I'll make a contract with you but on one condition." "And what condition would that be?" Kyuubey asked as Montana made a statement that had Kyuubey did a double-take. " I'm not doing this for a wish, but I'm only doing this so that I can help people like Kotetsu helped me that day we've met." "Very interesting, for someone doing this not out of themselves, but for everyone else's well-being but even more interesting is that it is for no wish at all but for helping those he cares for... Very well, I'll grant that for you as you seem like an interesting yet problematic guy to deal with." After that wish was made, Montana charged at the Witch and wasted no time killing it for devouring his sempai. After the deed was done, Montana decided as he looked at his Soul Gem Ring in his hand, he would help those that needed it even if they don't want it to begin with. And the rest is history.

hope this helps *Edit* just thought of doing a back story for my character after thinking about it.

I saw this on twitter, and thought it couldn't hurt to give it a shot. The uniform is inspired by Victorian and Edwardian era fashion, my weapon is a Philadelphia Deringer pistol, and the soul gem is an iron cross attached to her(my?) right arm.

You stole this. The person who drew this is actually on CR and his name is smaragdos. He made this for the user AcidK (as you can see is his current avatar). I know both of them, and I and especially smaragdos don't appreciate you stealing art work.

Here's my entry:



I'm a big fan of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, so winning anything would be awesome. As for the image... With my bubbles o' justice, I am Two Piece Suited Garylikesmanga! Able to get pesky soap residue in the most pesky villain's retina, in order to blind them and stuff... So hopefully they have retina...

Wish i knew how to work with computers to edit pictures..



Ugh, I shouldn't have tried to clean the line right after lifting weights. Hand too shaky...


you can download a trial version of adobe illustrator and do a live trace. and you can easily learn how to color it through youtube within a day. coloring this as a beginner would probably take a good 6 hours if your a perfectionist.

i really love the simplicity of the work that brings out the individual features of her clothing. still working on my clothing design.

Lolz, I Totally Agree. But it does Take more Skill to Hand draw (Speaking From Personal Experiance). On the Computer, you have more Tools to Help you Draw, And different Brushes, and All that Technical Stuff Stuff~ Though it Takes a While to Learn. So it all Depends on the Person~ But Anyways, can I See one of Your Drawings?? I Wanna Know how Pictures Can Take 2 Days ._.


yah sure, I made one where it took me almost 4 days i just finished. I'm still touching it up a bit and then I have to make it small enough to put online. The reason it took so long was that it was my final and it was textography. I made a tennis racquet entirely out of the word 'blade'. It was really fun though.

Here is my not too feminine magical girl Kumiko! Created specifically for this contest. Her wish was to be the greatest fighter the world has ever known. As you can see, her weapon of choice is the tonfa...I wonder what magical tonfa could do?

Really wanted to colour but would have taken me far too long...and I suck with colour.

Wow if that person actually did steal it... that's pretty low and they should be disqualified..
