Photobucket must have just had a hiccup or something. It seems fine to me.
I can plan out complicated drawings just fine.
What I meant was that my drawings will never be as visually striking as some because I don't like things that are frilly/big and impractical. It's part of why my Epyon has much smaller shoulder armor than the original Okawara version. In the Epyon drawing above, the wings look cool I guess, but look impractical and useless.
What drawings are you actually referring to, prog? I haven't actually posted any new lineart in a long while.
Also WHY should I lighten my lines? People keep saying this, but don't explain a need for it. I keep telling Crash to darken his lines, not because "he should draw like the rest of us" but because I genuinely can't see anything. But he understands he doesn't have to and it's not a big deal.
It's not like I erase a lot. I actually do very little erasing compared to most people. And my lines/pencil strokes are not heavy/dark the entire time I am sketching. I just solidify them before I scan the image so the scanned image comes out well. I'm trying to approximate inking with a pencil. If I actually went over the lines with a pen, would you still tell me to lighten my lines?
And some things are really starting to grate my nerves. You can't tell other artists to change something just because it's not in your taste. You have to learn the difference between something being different from your preference and something that is erroneous and should be fixed.
Crash likes to draw thin mecha. I don't tell him to make them bulkier. He likes using square angles in his lines. I don't tell him to use hexagonal lines just because I like them better. But if he messes up an ankle or whatever or the perspective looks wrong, I'll tell him.
Now it might have something to do with my scanner settings (I will test this later with Crash's help, I hope), but I like my dark lines. I'm not going to change how I work without good reason.
