Sarah Walker (Chuck)

“Its the character "Sara Walker" from the TV Series "Chuck"... still not up to my usual standards, but best portrait on queeky so far :) After messing around with queeky quite a bit now it seems there are three factors preventing me from my best work: 1. The smudge tool discolors and darkens noticibly except with the lightest colors. 2. The air brush has a similar problem when transparency is used and also has a slightly darker halo around it making an even covering a little tricky. 3. I just can't work in the kind of resolutions I'm used to... shrug. It's far superior to those flash doodle boxes on web pages though.... those are a challenge... 1 layer.... like 6 color choices and maybe 3 brush sizes if you're lucky... lol”

In case anyone's wondering...

The layer you don't see is the scribbly line drawing I made as a guide as I wanted to be able to overlay it and make sure I was staying close.... it's easy to fudge things too much when you mess around with colors a lot.

Nice...

I have had the problems that you talk about but I then just lightened up my opacity with the airbrush and used several layers. In a small size such as 3 or 4 you don't get the aura that is darker also in the smudge tool I lightened it up to about a 25 to a 30 and it so much better, even though you have to go over and smudge more it looks better in the end. But that is just my opinion and since I mainly learned to draw here with these tools I probably just never noticed it as much. Nice work here, continue to draw here every one of your drawings is better than the one before it.

You can...

...always edit it. Click edit at the upper right of this page.

Oh! I should move to the next tools. XD I've tried the airbrush once. I like it, but i need a lot of practice or else my drawing would look like a mess. XD

Tried...

I really tried this time... other than pixel by pixel I'm not sure I can do much better in my own styles anyhow...
