… I’ll be completely honest and say I’m not sure exactly what you’re implying😅but I’m trying to figure out what prompted you to say it. “Here’s a thought that might have a negative connotation, but if anyone agrees then don’t say anything because I don’t want it to reflect back on me.” That’s sort of what I got from that… hmm. Okay then 😂sorry to have upset you with my wholesome art thread 🤷😉

(sorry if that came off as too passive agressive. It probably was not the best way I could have responded.)

I hope this is alright :) I’ve been struggling with digital art recently… sometimes I make them too detailed, and they loose their “painterly effect.” Still makes for a nice piece of art, but maybe isn’t exactly what I was going for.

@Fishmanic Hmm.. well this lion fish had way more steps than the others, so I probably should have spilt it into multiple grids. 😅Here’s the reference again:

here is the start:

Here’s about halfway through:

the grid with all of the steps:

These two show the difference in steps- the looser, more painterly ones start out like the algae eater and lionfish, while the more detailed once start controlled, as in the axolotl. There’s more blending in the second option, whereas the first one is left with visible brushstrokes

Remember, do it how it feels best for you!! If you like doing outlines, stick with that. I use outlines for all my traditional commissions :) I only started the first strokes thing with the digital ones a few months ago
