The clouds guardian by Nordeva The clouds guardian by Nordeva
Wow, some months ago I never thought that I could do this :XD: Well, this is another guardian... Flurry, the clouds guardian :) As you can see, his wings are his arms. He's falling down, playing in the sky...
Ps: I accept critiques in this drawing ;)

Don't use this without my permission!!

Made with Gimp 2.6.4 and Wacom tablet

"Well, he's a cute thing, isn't he?" would be my first thought. Very well drawn, and nicely shaded too. The background also looks good - the clouds are nice and fluffy, and I like how you've used a gradient for the sky. The feather around his neck, too, is a well-executed detail.

In terms of improvement, I'd focus on the lineart. It looks a little shaky, and in one or two places a line carries on past where I'd expect it to stop - for example, where the curve of his back meets his shoulder blade. How long have you been drawing with the tablet?
If you make your strokes with the tablet pen faster, the lines will appear smoother and more natural. I'd also advise checking over your lineart before you start colouring - so you can catch those little bits of line I mentioned.

Overall, though, I do like this guy. He looks very sweet =]
What do you think?

Thanks a lot! :dummy:

O well I use a normal circle('cause we're talking about Gimp aren't we? <w< )
Then I choose the size in the tool options :meow:

But I also use another option that you can use with a tablet that makes the line be thin or thik depending on the pressure you add :)

go to tool options and click one thing under the brush size
It has options... like "opacity, hardness..."

(If you don't have a tablet it doesn't work)

That's ... awesome.. I love the colors and the shading *_* And the pose is great, too x3
But you should save your pics as .png not as .jpg... jpg has a bad quality ._.

actually, you can alter the quality level when you save a file as a .jpg in GIMP - better quality will take up more space, but it can be done.

yes, paint saves at a low quality. i don't know if there's a way around it in paint, though.
