This is really neat! I like how feral and spry he looks with his dagger raised. Nice lineart, and the coloring looks great, IMO.

Never liked FF IX too much... Well, actually never saw how it ends 'cuz every person I know who was playing it also got bored of it and droped it... ^^; Bah... I like this. You reflected well Zidane's personality... :nod:

I love FFIX :) Cheerful maincharacter (not some EMO ass like cloud or squall), other characters are interresting aswell, beautiful worlds, funny enemies (especially Waltz 3 hahhahha I love that dude)... BUU-UUUT, if one doesn't like "omg don't talk anymore! Action!!!" it's not good for that hehe.

Ehh... I like action but words are good sometimes, too... Thought... - Cheerfull charas...??!! That almost sounds me so Non-Squarish...! What's 'Cherrfull'...?? ;P

Oh. And I like those "EMO" charas.... TT

That's the reason why FFIX was left into shadows: MOST OF THE CHARACTERS WHERE CHEERFULL!!! HAPPY!! JOY!!! :giggle: People disliked all that attitude and the "chibiness" in the character designs. Audience wants big boobs! Angsty teenages with pretty faces LAWL :rofl:

No, I don't dislike cheerfull charas.... But all....?? That's tooo much, don't you think....?? Bah. Not sure if the chibiness is bad: I love chibis...!! But for me, the only worthy chara from FFIX is Vivi... Yay for cute black mages....!! =D (I love FFT... You can see it easily...?)

Have you tried coloring it differently so it will turn out perfect on the scanner?

i dont think the colors are that bad!

i wish i could do watercolors. i tried a couple years ago, and it turned out a disaster. never have i done it since (plus, i was like 10, so i sucked...) haha nice picture. i like it

I suggest you try again ^-^ With better equipments than you had when you were.. 10 :XD: And of course.. the paper you use watercolors on.. it can't be just any paper you draw on. It has to be hard and not bend when you lift it into air.

hmm yea i should try again... i make good oil paintings... but watercolors is different. yea i know that paper that ur talkin about. it like, stops the colors from bleeding or something... not sure. haha i was just so scared to ever watercolor again after that last catastrophe XD

It seems you have the same problem of using too much water ;) Oils don't much anything for the same purpose since they don't dry so fast and you can fix and mix them the way you want or even take it off. Soo I suggest you use good stiff brushes and LITTLE water :)

XD Scanners are crap, but one must count on them night and day if one is to transmit art to the computer without additional darkening! Mou... last time I used mine, it mangled my sketch and almost none of the colors came out. And of the ones that did, I had to mess around Photoshop to get them right. And that was with colored pencil! >.<

I don't know who this character is, but the colors are SO clean and bright, regardless of what you say! If this is what you call bad, then your original must be so much better! Never scanned watercolors before, but I do know that scanners hate copic markers, too. And those tiny beads ...! How do you control your brush so well?!

I have good brushes? :coffeecup: They don't bend when I push them a little, they stay sharp.. Synthetic brushes! Nothing of a hair of an animal. Those type of brushes suck arses >.>; You can see and feel it in yer fingers. Synthetic are very smoot and stiff, real hair brushes bend like grass in a wind ~.~;

I'm lucky my scanner doesn't hate copic markers :boogie:

Ehehe... I haven't done watercolor in many years. And that was when I was using those kiddie kits with the really bad brushes @.@ Maybe that's what you mean by good brushes? :XD:

Last time I scanned in a copic marker piccie, the skin tones looked really light and really yellow instead of tannish, and the black looked really gray.

How do you make your watercolours so clean?

Does your scanner make the colours look a bit faded? I'm sure you can correct it in photoshop if it does, or change the settings of your scanner to not do it so bright, then just mess around in photoshop to get the colours how you want it to precisely look.

This looks fantastic!

how do I... uh :confused: What you mean by that? Doesn't go over lines? Blue is blue? :O

I can't do anything about it :cries: the watercolor paper is so thick and has bumbs on it and stuff, and the scanner tries to get everything on the pic scanned and overlighting the "closest" to scannering thingie... Boo I can't explain... but it rapppppes the colors anways like that ;_;

I can't use my watercolours well XD The same colour changes several times due to water concentration and then bits run around the place.

Geeeeh, so all we can do is curse the scanner? XD

Eeeevil scanner! Release the colours from your evil grasp!

DUDE!! Use LESS WATER!! :XD: Although it's watercolors, you aren't supposed to drown the pic into water <.<; if you don't want the colors to blend together, WAIT the first color to dry.
