    The face has a really nice and unique look--I do love the expressions with the fins, that's a nice touch! :)

      Thank you! <3
      I did struggle a bit showing their emotions. It's not my area of expertise lol xD

        You’re very welcome! :D

        As I always say, practice will make better (because nothing is ever “perfect”, you can always improve)! :)

          Very true!
          I've been minimalizing details lately though, due to hand issues. I tend to over work it so Im trying to work a bit on the minimal side. "trying" lol xD

            It’s hard to cut back on something you love—even when it hurts. But trying is partway there! :)

              That is true!
              I also grip harder when I do traditional, so I've been avoiding working on traditional pieces. But it's killing me because I can work way faster on headshots on paper than on my tablet lol xD

                I know what you mean. I'm still doing my ref sheets and coloring by hand and with markers, because it would take me a thousand years to have time to sit and do it digitally! But ARTHRITIS makes it freaking hard sometimes to do either! XD

                  I just bought a fat t h i c c pencil to see if it helps with my grip...won't help with overuse, but it's a start lol xD
                  OMG coloring by hand...you crazy lol xD But it looks better traditionally, something about the texture just...aesthetic xD
                  Oh man, arthritis is no fun D:

                    Getting old suuuucks!!!! XD

                    I still love using all my traditional stuff. My linework is my proudest part of my skill. I still spend.......way too much on Bristol paper and markers! XD

                      I caved and bought 3, one for each lead size lol xD

                      But it's worth it, honestly. Linework is so under appreciated xD

                      • Link

                        It is totally worth it. Technology is nice and everything..........but what do you do if your computer breaks and you can't replace it/fix it right away? At least having some traditional materials at hand--should disaster strike--you can still draw things for awhile. :)

                          They have been pretty handy with some recent doodles, not straining as much xD
                          Exactly, it's why I'd like to have both. Traditional work is getting rare nowadays. Don't get me wrong, I love digital stuff, but traditional always has that raw art feeling to it.
                          Oh I have so much traditional stuff to work with, I stockpiled when I had money, just in case something went down lol xD

                            The way this world is going--we may see mass explosion of the internet in the future. I think the world is a bit wrong to be gambling everything on interconnectivity via the internet.......with technology not even having the longer lifespans it used to. My previous laptop lasted me 10 years, this new laptop is acting cranky after almost 2. :<

                            If the internet breaks and a mass EMP takes out all technology--you and I will be safe and still able to draw. nods
