I checked out your art and its pretty amazing I was wondering if you could give me some pointers on making some shiny armour for this character I made.
Any help would be appreciated

that'd require effort.

pick up the paintbrush tool and start drawing. i'll give it a shot and draw a few examples later today. i'm watching anime now.

[edit, and do something about the shading, and the line work, it's pretty fucked.]

oh and if somebody else would bother to do something about his question/request, be my quest, in fact, that'd be most preferred.

(too bad i can't draw.)

just a quick comment, her behind seems to start to high up... if you get me.

damn whats the english word. hmm. look at the pic, thats where i mean ...



if you still have your sketching on a seperate layer use levels or brightness contrast whichever you like to soften things up. maybe even go over it with a small white brush..

Was the body shape traced? If so, I would make your trace one layer, then redraw over the trace on another layer using more sweeping strokes for the voluminous areas. Then work with the brightness/contrast on the outline layer until it looks softer.

She looks A LOT like Xena. She's made from a reference?

Xena isn't that fat though

don't use the plastic wrap filter. draw the shines and stuff by hand. much better results shall come that way.
