Kickboxer Misty Colored by Bahmo
Kickboxer Misty Colored
Once again, credit to The Complete Idiot's Guide to Drawing Manga for the pose.  I don't always trace or copy, but this one seemed natural because that book has the unpleasant habit of forcing people to practice drawing anatomy, and then erase it when it was time to draw clothes, so I tended to change details.

I can't help thinking this isn't finished, so I'd like some critiques.

Meanwhile, who wants to see Kickboxer Misty Vs Kung Fu Flannery!

Why is it that people I meet on DeviantArt keep deactivating!

Sketch I arrived at from The Complete Idiot's Guide to Drawing Manga.  More explanation penciled in.  This was actually drawn quite a few years ago; realizing it's one of my best drawings ever and that I can now use Gimp better has convinced me to color it in some time in the future, so the original is going up, in all of its binder-warped glory!

I think Kung Fu Flannery has found her opponent!

Haiyaaaaaaaa!  Feisty firey Flannery is finally  fit to fight!  But who will be her first opponent?

I finally got around to coloring this thing in.  It was weighing on me, and I have other projects I need to get to.  Nice to have it off my chest.  Thanks again to :icon-Lynnwest-Stock: for the original: lynnwest-stock.deviantart.com/…

I've used Gimp for while now, but it still is rather cryptic to me on some points.  Chief among these is the Smudge Tool.  I get that it's a great choice for shading and illumination, but it has so many adjustable settings that I have trouble figuring out which setting to adjust to do which thing.  Things such as how far a color can be smudged, how far it goes before it fades, how much "in-between" hues will be made smudging between two hues; it's all alluded to briefly in every tutorial I read or watch, but I'd like more detail.

What I am trying to do right now is draw shadows; currently on skin.  I've got the primary skin tone, I've drawn on the bottom in a darker skin tone, and now I'd like to smudge so they merge naturally.  Could someone recommend settings on all relevant sliders so that I get this effect?  I ask for all of them, because I sometimes notice certain things, like the "rate" slider, aren't always behaving the way tutorials imply they should.

Please help.

So, if you were tuned into the right media outlets starting yesterday, you know about the big reveal of Sonic Boom, both the game and the TV show.  I saw the videos, and my interest was mildly piqued, but this being a series I haven't bought for almost a decade (guess which game broke me), I was hardly wowed.  Then I stumbled onto Polygon and read this: www.polygon.com/2014/2/6/53871… , and I just about did this (Warning, probably NSFW): www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-pX30…

Not since the writings of :iconvertekins: has something made me want stand up and cheer so much, and unlike her writings, this is a manifesto for a game.  Moving away from mindless speed obsession?  Check.  Exploration?  Check.  Bringing Sonic's friends back into a playable role?  Double check.  Giving them all different, useful abilities instead of using Wisps to give Sonic all of the abilities?  Check.  Amy Rose as a flat-out badass?!  Check!  Better plot?  Check.  I might actually feel inclined to look over my shoulder and see if these "Big Butt" guys (seriously; that's what I read their name as) are spying on me, but I'm too thrilled to be nervous, because these are all of the things I've been begging for, to varying degrees, for far too long--some of them over a decade.  It's like the developers took a look at all of those idiots, including players, reviewers, and even Sonic Team themselves for a while, who insist Sonic should be nothing but a shallow speedy boost-fest, and said, "You know what?  No.  Fuck that overrated Dimps shit.  We're going back to making an actual game!"

It's still early, and of course, it's still possible the game will be bad.  I have a hard time seeing one with that much announced about it, but it's always possible.  But if it's bad, that will be the fault of the execution; not the concept.  Meanwhile, when you have a concept like Shadow the Hedgehog or the use-the-boost-to-get-through games that scared me to all new levels when Sega called them "Modern Sonic", even if you execute it perfectly, you'll still be left lacking.  This sort of thing has already started on the right foot, and I cannot wait to read, hear, or see more.
