Rock With Mei by dCTb Rock With Mei by dCTb

"GIMP-Shading "Rock With Mei pt1" is on YouTube


Ok I can't hold onto this picture anymore! It's been done for two days now and I held onto it just so I can make a youtube video and a brand new original song to go with it. The videos will be about my shading technique, the first part being a timelapse of me preparing my shade layer. The final image ended up being quite different in colors used and in the face.

If you have any ideas of what else you'd like to see me do in GIMP, let me know!

Hey, this is pretty nice work!! :D

Checking out some of your stuff, I notice you seem a lot like myself. I've got this cartoon band I created where I not only do the music, but the art as well. :) Really liked the song you got posted here, I might add. :P

This fabulous lady here has got the vibe of rock! Shading, textures, proportions, I see nothing here to complain (well, I'm not an expert, though). Nice touch also with the sticker with your logo and the poké- and dragonball on the guitar. This is a 5xAAAAA++ for me here.
