Crow - for cuttingmoon57 by Wind-Bandit Crow - for cuttingmoon57 by Wind-Bandit
This was done in honor of an astounding story I found written by cuttingmoon57 on fanfiction.net. It's a Final Fantasy Tactics A2 fanfiction with amazing plot and characters, so I drew my favorite for her. If you have the game, (and have beaten it, I'd recommend) then check it out here:

This character is Crow. I know that normally one shouldn't see so much of a black mage's face, but it still looks pretty indistinguishable. For some reason it looked a lot darker and the lineart was less noticeable when it was still being worked on in Corel Painter. I'll have to go back and change that. And he's not very happy right now.

Thanks to Bezumi's coloring tutorial made using Corel Painter, which introduced me to the wonders of the Soft Airbrush, Soft Blender Stump and Erase All Soft eraser- they make coloring so much easier! The tutorial can be found here:

That door. Do you see that door? I colored that door in 2 minutes with the tools shown in Bezumi's tutorial. I will be forever thankful.

The background coloring is my only real problem with this picture. Does anyone have any advice as to how it could be improved? It's not quite complete, because it doesn't feel done. Until then, this may be edited periodically and reposted.

I really need to stop writing so much in these things. Oh, well. Everybody enjoy!

Wow, Annie, this looks great! I can see you're really putting an effort into the coloring and line work. I like how much emotion you put into the subject's face as well. I'm really impressed. :) As for backgrounds, here are some links to tutorials on painting trees and whatnot--I hope they give you more of a general idea for things:

I also recommend drawing things from life. Just take your sketchbook with you and start drawing buildings and whatnot. Keep up the awesome work!

Oh, wow, thank you! It's nice to know that an amazing artist like you who goes to special colleges for it and everything or whatever you do is impressed! Faces are always my favorite thing to draw, next to hands, so my sketchbook is filled with them.

Oh, cool! Thank you for all the background help! Those tutorials are really useful! Especially the tree and mountain ones! Thank you again!

You are improving REALLY FAST and I am super impressed! Wow! Good for you for using tutorials! It's important to learn techniques like that. No, seriously, wow, keep it up. I am proud.

I like the touch with the crinkly socks/shoes at the end of his toes. 8D

:D Thank you~! Tutorials are useful and there to be used. Proud, are you? Nice to know that you think I'm getting better! I shall work hard on my pictures! Dad's always, 'yadda yadda yadda, you draw too much,' but I am like 'Meh. You can deal.' So he does.

You like the shoes too? I had lot of fun drawing them!

:D Thanks for the comment!
