Just round brush(of many sizes) and layers^^

I wanted to draw a speedpaint and I failed - I did too much details:P I wanted to do it more monochromatic... haven't...

did you paint over the original picture?
Aniusia483 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
No, I've got one pic done that way, by "anthro definitions" to ensure everyone each single difference is made consciously, not accidentally;) I've almost always tried to be precise by photo referencing, in this one I still can see differences but I don't want to go back to this portrait to fix them now - when I see them better, still noone would probably notice the differencexD And that was made in a shorter time than I usually need for such drawing, so I haven't enough much time to go back with a fresh look at it and notice those then:P And BTW it's a bit bigger than the original photo (but in the same frame though);)

It sounds like a kind of underrating mexD But, on the other hand, that's still a complement to me:giggle:

So doubt me. That's what it is.

That's because of the fact I was always referencing images like they were, or almost like they were. I haven't learned imaginary drawing, and I've started learing those and the process of finding new ways and styles. But recently I haven't enough time for practising, for drawing, and... it resoults in some loose as well...:/ I doubt if I could draw a traditional piece
like I used to (I gave up because I didn't like how my scanner started to work. And I got a tabletxD)...

Being asked for such proves doesn't feel nice...
I actually don't have this layer anymore, I often delete them, because each single layer makes the file bigger and my computer can't usually handle those and gets slower. I always have a few layers deleted or merged, when I'm sure I don't need them anymore. Now I got frustrated...
I've got only one of my photoreferencing works with some of its sketch... but it wasn't the only sketch layer it had... But one left so I could make this animation: [link] here is the final: [link] (photo reference is included in the description).

Whoah! I thought this was a photograph for a second there!

See, Gimp-haters? It is possible to create works of art with open-source programs.
