Watch out Sarah Jane by spandexsleuth

Before I start, I want to say that sometimes you have to be able to give harsh criticism, even though you want to be encouraging. So wi...

A place to relax 3 by MichaelG1234

Man! As a fellow Octane User, I've got to tip my hat. The only thing that I would like to point out is that they reflections of the lig...

Archer and Dragon by EmilyStepp

I like the colors and the subject well enough, but there's something that throws the picture off to me and that's perspective. When I l...

I don't know why I'm so resistant to the idea, but I'm not a Photoshop guy... For what I do, I just can't see it as something to invest a lot of time in. Now down't beat me up  --I know a lot of professionals swear out by it, and with good reason. But for someone like me, It's really just too much. I actually find myself getting more distracted by all the features, than I would just using Sketchbook Pro.

Most of the time, I'm trying to learn more about laying out a scene, posing the characters and bringing it all together to make a composition. Granted, I'm nowhere near being able to do all of what I just said --but I think it's easy to get caught up in masking levels, channels and all it's amazingly useful features. But when it comes down to it, none of this is going to make me any better at drawing. So I've decided not to pursue photoshop. Instead, I'm going to concentrate a little more on drawing and using tools to help me ink what I draw. When I can sit down and draw a comic page that really leaps off the page, then I think I'll be ready to spend some time learning the ins and outs of Photoshop.

Many thanks to my Sister for teasing me mercilessly about digital drawing.

Thanks a lot. I try to do things that you don't see too much of --at least done well, that is.

It's nice to see someone do something really creative like what you've done. Most of the stuff I've run into is pretty standard off the shelf stuff. You get a little tired of people using the same imported BVH file to make a girl dance on the screen, LOL. I like how you managed to convey so much in such a short piece, as well as create a desire to see more. That's the hallmark of good animation to me. I look forward to seeing the rest of what you have in store.

thanx for the encouraging words Will, 
mighty kind of U :)

...and if you think a lot has been conveyed 
in A Little Demon Play, wait till the next one 
is done... it's less then 20 seconds and it 
might capture a certain dynamic between
