Hyper Sonic :Thank 6000 views: by OrotheEchidna Hyper Sonic :Thank 6000 views: by OrotheEchidna
Thanks for the 6000 views. I made this today. I had alot of things going on today that stopped me from completing this. Things that i dont need to get into details ^^;

But I finally pulled it through and......well.....TA DA!!!! I tried practicting my shading again, I think i am getting better :)

I think I went through like 25-30 layers. But like one of my friends said here on DA, layers are your friends. You cant have too many layers.

Also, to the people who do digital art. You make it seem easy :ohnoes:. I found out the hard way that this is not easy and very time consuming. But it did came out cleaner than most traditional art and that's why I like digital art. I just need some practice, but for now, I will stay with traditional art ^^;

Awesome :floating: Hmm...traditional...or digital...? I cannot say I like on more that the other....Digital is easy to colour (altho all I have is paint, I love it) but traditional is easier to draw. :shrug: XD And congrats!

Thanks. I prefer traditional because its faster for me, but digital does come out with great results.


This took me like the whole day, minus the couple of stops that I had to make.^^;

You're welcome ^^
And I know how that feels. XP In fact my latest deviation, I had to shade traditonally. It was a pain, took me hours. I perfer paint for shading XD. BTW, quick question, what is a...'layer'?

I need to see that. When I was finally done with this picture, I got a lot of deviations to look at.

layers is something on Photoshop that allows you to work on specific stuffs. You can make as many layers as you want. I had to use layers for like the aura, the sparkles, the head color, the head shade, the eye color, the eye shade, the body color, the body shade, and the list keeps going on and on :crazy:

Usually people will use alot for very detailed drawings. Layers can also be used in photoshop for animation. Which is what I am working on also (for like months now ^^;)

:faint: If photoshop is that much of a hassle Im glad I never got it. *kisses MS Paint* Why do you need a seperate layer for everybody part? Makes no snese to me :no:
OMG ur making an animation??? :paranoid: Hmm curiousity has hit me....XDD Well good luck with whatever your doing :D IDK how you find the time for all this stuff with skool AND work :faint:

well the layers are meant to be a helpful way to keep the picture organized. So you dont put the wrong color in the wrong place.

well, a quick animation. Just a blinking face.....with some added effects which is slowly my process. Here is a hint though. In one icon, hopefully, you will see Oro, Menace, and Oro the Heartless in it. :paranoid: You will have to wait to see how it turns out later.

Work.....my boss is being.....well like herself and she was able to convince another manager that (even though he doesnt really know me). And that manager is starting to spread it around (thankfully, no one believes him since they saw that I work hard). But its the managers who put the hours down for me, not the other workers, so....less hours for me. :(

School.....I dont even know either :lol: I have alot of homework, but I am doing good in class and homecoming is coming soon. I dont even know how I make time with that :confused:

You can do the exact same thing without the hassle using the Secret Tool in MS Paint, tho. :lmao: I am rly not seeing much of a difference between PhotoShop and Paint.

Oooh I think I remember u telling me! Its gunna be ur new icon, right?? XDD I cant wait to see that! :excited: Menace ftw :w00t: evil shall prevail!

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that budddy :hug: Can't you report her or something? I mean if shes going 'round spreading lies n such, surely she shouldnt be able to get away with it! Thats not fair :noes:

Homework sux! Thats why, during free-time, I did my homework in class :lol: And I know how you did it. Dont lie...you used Chaos Control, didnt you? ADMIT IT! jk :floating:

hmm, still I find it easier to use photoshop. I tried using MS Paint once......I failed at that :XD:

Yea, I got the pictures right, I just cant do the animation right ^^;

I tried, my store manager (her boss also) tried helping me get more hours, but that was like for 2 weeks. After that, it was back to very few hours.

Chaos Control? No, of course I dont know how to do that.....or do I? :paranoid:
