I also reformatted the first post. Now, if you want to find something, it'll be on the first post so people won't have to search through posts to find something.
Good work on your first trace, and good work on the colors as well.

Though, I think you dont need to put your stuff inside spoiler tags. As long as you use clickable thumbnails for the large images, you dont really need to worry about space on the first post.

You should also post your new stuff in the latest page, that way, people that already saw your old stuff will not need to go through everything everytime you update.

That's just what I think of course. Feel free to disagree.

No no, that makes perfect sense. I'll do both, just because it'll be more convenient.

I just think it'll be easier if the spoiler tags were there so they [because we all know who they are!] wouldn't have to filter though thumbnails. That's also why I put dates.

But thanks ^__^. It was a really enjoyable [yet kind of mundane, and stressful when the curves wouldn't work out] experience. I'll probably do more [probably Lucky Star ones].

Maybe I should actually try to do a picture with eyes....

As the rest of your sig you manage to bring out the calm serene feeling very well. but mmm why green? I thought a white/pink like bg might suite the render better. But that is just imho.

Well, I choose green because it worked best with yellow and blue, the [at least, in my opinion] most important parts of the signature, because I usually try to bring attention in to the face. I was actually going to make it orange, because it had yellow and a pink on the outfit [the yellow-orange-red color scheme], but it turned out that green worked better to fit a mood [and I like it as a color better].

I realize now that although using white has its advantages, it [in my opinion] is kind of plain, and leaves the background with more-or-less an empty feeling.

Thanks ^__^. I'm glad they're giving out good feelings.
I'll try to do as well, if not better.

A new trace. I have two versions because I fail at creating eyes.

No need to feel sad or lonely ^^.

Maybe people got a little bit tired of too much lucky star overkill or so...
Anyway nice stuff you have here (not exceptional but solid). The render is a little plain... I guess without detailing it, it does not make too much sense to resize it to that size. With increasing size the details usually grow... thats where you need to invest your own creativity in (which is not quite easy... judging from my own experience).

Huh?
Oh, you mean the vector [I'm used to renders referring to something different]? Yeah, I guess you're right.
I think I should get the technique down before I actually worry about creativity though.

But that makes sense. I'll think about that more in the future. Thanks ^__^.

Me too... (coming from the 3D arts sector it sometimes feel displaced to use the word render for vector renders too, but in the end it is a render... vector graphics are rendered to pixel graphics... thus the result is a rendered image )

Regarding training the technique... I'ld also make this my top priority.

Though doing a vector graphic can be very time consuming... therefore I almost never do one

Well, even if it's time consuming, it's fun and I enjoy doing it ^__^.
I have an obsession with Lucky Star though, so I probably won't do many [or any] vectors/renders/traces of any other anime until I get over my obsession.

I saw this back when you first posted it, but I sorta forget to post a comment then.

Say, how are you optimizing these images? I ask because the quality of the image (not your work) is kinda bad.

And I dont see anything bad with the eyes in either version. I prefer the second version, btw.

Ah...
Maybe I should save the next ones with the highest quality?

Oh, and new signature.



Those of you tired of Lucky Star stuff from me, sorry, but I'll keep on doing them ^__^.
[Actually, my next planned trace will be of a Lucky*Star character].

Edit: Another one. I just didn't want to double-post.

Whoa... is that really tsukasa... it seems to paint a different character but it looks great nonetheless. Ironically, comparing your two signatures, kagami brings forth that confused look while tsukasa has that confident, blase sophistication on her face. aha~ character-switch

Well, you have 38 posts bah, not bad. At least you're pretty regular, not like innominate.

on a side note, I like the tsukasa sig alot =D You propound very profound themes.
