    Well, I have decided to start doing some cool art stuff by coloring my drawings in CS2.

    Here is my absolute first work by doing this. I have had no prior experience in cell shading, so I am pretty new to this:

    (I drew everything on it except the his right hand. [the one with the gun]. No matter how hard I tried, I could not draw that hand. So I ended up vectoring a photograph of my Greedo toy's hand for it.)

    Critics are appreciated!

    Looking fun and cool!... You should do more, and perhaps give poor Greedo his legs lol

    Great to see you start up your own thread, Kudar! :)

    First and foremost - I love your style. Very stylized and it has that neat cartoony feel to it. The coloring looks good to me. I'm not too experienced in this stuff myself but in this case, I think the simple approach works. You have the flat colors and the little bit of shading where needed. I think it really looks good! Nice job! :)

    Kinda odd looking, but in a cute way. Like Invader Zim or Spongebob Squarepants. I like it. :)

    Nifty style you've got there! Hands can be hard, especially ones with different features than the human hand. If you're having troubles, draw a fingerless mitten, then cut up the mitt shape to make fingers. It's easier to pose it as a mitten shape than to just draw the hand from nothing. Keep up the good work!

    I love it! :D Yup, hands can be a pain (I belive the old artist's motto is "heads, hands, feet" when it comes to difficulty in drawing things). A mirror always helps, or one of those artist's hand mannequins. I've been meaning to get one of those myself.

    Greedo looks great, and the coloring is spot on!

    Very cute, I love the style you're using, though I agree with everyone else, poor Greedo needs some legs ^^

    Hello Kudar, and I really like your Greedo! And as to "giving him his legs"--stylistic choices are what art is all about--and this, for me, works just fine: a sort of "upper-body" sort of portrait. And I'll jump on board with the lament about "hands and feet," lol! They can be a real pain! Basement24 has a great suggestion about the "mitten rough-out" to start with though--it can sometimes be a real help! This is a wonderful piece just as it is, though--very cool style and wonderful, vibrant colors--well done!
