And now for something a little different from my recent trend!

Marley from Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum. Seems her iconic pokemon's Arcanine, so I decided to do something with something more past-ish with Growlith.

I really like that dress! Quite a light, yet refreshing take on the usual gothic designs.

And it's been a while since my last piece with those 0_0 type of eyes! Certainly makes me realize these kind of pieces aren't really fit with soft shading. Maybe! *sniffs* ...maybe.

Tool used was Photoshop.

Haha that's adorable. Nice comic style. And your coloring style really looks so delicious on pastelly pics. :D

I find that the style on pieces like these make it look like something that came out of a children's book, hence the choice of background I gave it. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong (which is most likely the case), but I'm guessing some shading styles are just more effective for certain themes.

That, and thanks a bunch! Seriously, your comments are definitely amongst the most in depth ones I ever receive. Much appreciated! :hug:

No problem. I enjoy reading in depth comments, so I try to tell as much as I can as much as possible too (without rambling too much). XP

Yeah, it's definitely got that children's book feel to it. Maybe making the colors a bit more lighter and a tad more softer would do the trick? Though really, I think that you got the feel already. ^^
