TL;DR: Art by me, lined and colored by MonochromeAgent from FA. This is my new... fursona I guess?
As many of you know, I used to be a digital artist. As much as I kept up with it and improved at anatomy, I never really grasped the concept of shading or how to make my line work look amazing. I tried several times to see if I could get a more experienced artist to finish off one of my sketches to see what my art COULD look like, but was never successful. Thus I gave up art, and that was the end of it.
Then last night Mono agreed to do just that! I've always loved his art, particularly his cell shading, and he's incredibly patient and kind. So he took my sketch, lined it, colored it, and shaded/highlighted it. Looking at this just... is amazing. This is what my art could actually look like. I think that, maybe, I might try my hand at art again. Because if this is what my art can become, then I don't think this is bad at all.
