Nice! It looks like something LEGO would draw in their castle comics. Good job.

Agreed!
But in this one why are there lots of little white dots?

Dunno. It just ended up that way.

This is a really nice drawing! I would suggest adding some softer shading to it.

But in this one why are there lots of little white dots?


If you drew this on a computer, then you probably drew the outlines of your drawing first and then filled them in with a paint bucket tool. The white dots are caused because the pixels right next to the lines are a slightly different color than the main pixels inside the shape. This can cause the paint bucket tool to not fill these edge pixels, leaving them white.

It depends on what program you are using, but I'm sure there's an easy way to fix that.

:shock:

This is great! Good job on the picture -the proportions are accurate and the pose is epic.

I use the GIMP to colour my minifigures -I find that MS Paint is not the most effective colouring tool. The GIMP does a nice job, plus you can use some cool lighting effects. I use MS paint for the speech bubbles however.

Do you make comics too?

Yes, that is quite good! As said, very well proportioned and the pose looks very natural. Cool!

Ahh... the MOC (Master of Comics) speaks... this could get very cool 8)

GIMP is a much better tool once you get over the learning curve, I've seen Graynar and some others do very cool stuff with it~
