    @LionsDragon No need to feel that. I used to draw without doing shapes. They would come out weird without a good 'foundation' (not sure if it's called like that.) So, it takes time to get good at drawing. :)


    This explains a lot of my frustrations. Boy, if I could have a word with my younger self for being so impatient!

    Okay. Had to look it up. I hope that's getting treated. :)


    It is! Just had a check up today, in fact, and my doctor was surprised to discover I've regained a little vision in my right eye. :)


    So on that note--cake for everybody! :cake:

  2. Well. Now I feel very silly. I always skipped that step as a kid. That could be why I never learned to draw.

    Oh. Sorry for bringing it up. :(


    Dude, no worries! I brought it up, remember? :) I have glaucoma, the type where my eye pressure spikes really suddenly. I thought it was a migraine triggered by my ragweed allergy. :P

    @LionsDragon You're welcome. :)

    I don't use them much. But, upon testing what can I do with them, they're good for creating 'chaos'. I can't help creating chaotic things to, then, start looking for shapes or figures... It's kind of like searching images in clouds or forests. Also, both fractals are good for effects. X]


    I like making "fire and ice" pieces with them, which is part of why I had the idea to add fractals to this image.

    Oh, that. o.o The only advice I can give is something I caught from just observing and practicing. Shapes are the base for a drawing. It doesn't matter if it's cartoon-ish, anime/manga, semi-realistic or realistic.

    ...That helps immensely, believe it or not! I guess I never thought to break drawings down that way....

    I didn't know that. o.o


    Well, I think this is the first time I've mentioned it on the forums.


  4. @Beta0, yes, sadly, a photomanipulation. I can't draw worth a darn, but I'm trying to improve my other skillsets.


    I'm inclined to agree about the background. I was trying to make a play on "fire-born" and well, it looks like she's still hatching. :P I've tried giving her glowing eyes a few times and didn't care for the result; I'm torn between leaving her with "normal" eyes and trying a little glow deep within. I'll see which I like better.


    I can't believe I didn't think of a "halo." *facepalm* Thanks.


    Back to the canvas. ;)
