Yes, I just noticed this as well. >_<

Pretty annoying, simply because people need to save the image to see it in full. Of course, if the end up seeing nothing more than a shity resize of it, they could probably not bother saving it to begin with.

Either way, you can try this one out in the mean time.

<-- thumbnail sample

That looks good, although I'm concern about how the thumbnail version looks... (makes it look like I did such a horrendous job D: )

Well, reuploaded my vectors there.

Thank you for your help.

EDIT: Also, is it just me but for my last vector, whenever I focus on the nose, her whole expression turns out bad and the nose just sticks out? <_<

That's because the image lacks a background. If you go with a simple color or a gradient to fill it, the thumbnail will look better.

That's probably an effect created by the style of the drawing itself. I sometimes move eyes, mouths and noses for this very same reason.

Aye, it looks really good. Thank you.

I wish to retain it in render form for those who wish to use it, though.

I see. I was worry that the line for the nose was a bit too thick and needed to be smudged a little bit. It looked a bit faded in the original image.

Anyway, just to see what it looked like, I changed the shadow and highlight colors to black and white with blending mode 'soft light'. The exceptions are the highlights of the hair (which I use 'value' blending mode with 30% opacity instead). It didn't look as differently as I thought it would.



Then I blurred the shadows and highlight (except for the spots on Shana's face because those would disappear):



It looks quite Daniel E.-ish imo .

And aye, xcf here for anyone who's interested. Not sure how well GIMP can convert to psd, but will try anyway... psd here.

All that is missing now are the colored outlines.

Though, those would be a pain to add to an already finished piece. If you ever feel like it, I suggest doing it from the beginning on something different.

Oh and Imageshack is back on track again, btw.

I still need an extra click to open a second window to see the image in full, though. >_<

Well, it's kinda hard to do color outline when I start outlining first (previously, I fill the colors first and outline afterward). If I change the color of the outlines, though, there would be a few spots to fix but not that many (at least, I hope so). EDIT: nvm... there are a lot of spots to fix after all.. ~_~

Aye... I don't feel like reuploading my vectors back to imageshack since I have already reuploaded them once...

Aye... so errr, I decided to do a drawing of the picture in pencil. >_<



It didn't turn out very well, but considering my ability, though, I would say that it's pretty good...

Didn't intend to do shading, but I did it anyway. It was there to hide the badly drawn outlines, but the shading doesn't look very good, either, sadly. Proportion is also a bit off, I think, and I ended up not having enough space to finish the head >_<.

It doesn't look completely like Shana, but probably close enough.

And last but not least, I resized it to a small size so that it would look better than it actually is.
