    8) Avatars can be made from Renders/Stock.

    And here I kept wondering how you guys kept quality intact because scaling down a stock also reduces quality. Welp!

    Yay /o/ I color over pretty much all of mine a little bit, but the eyes and eyelashes were great in the original already

    Venom isn't cute D:<
    Ay, I wanted the red to contrast the cyan as the main 2 colors, so that was more or less intentional :thinking Thanks though, I guess I should've kept the text less vibrant. Not sure if font is fine either ;;
    I think you could've kept more contrast here >_> I like the vignette/focus shift to the characters a lot, but the light should probably be more ..light so it's effects are visible
    I love the colors in this, but same thing with contrast missing I think. And maybe could have more effects of the green/blue light-source visible on her, but not really important

    Its prolly that Light is not Right stuff I have.

    I really feel Light ruins many of stuff I do, So I tend to do normal room light or dim mostly. As for contrast , Eh always sucked at it. I suck at color theory and mixing those, I normally just do same color schemes.

    Ay thanks~

    Hm it’s not much though. You can fake light effects just by a clicking /w a large(~175px?) soft brush and setting the layer to overlay, which will be much more subtle than color dodge or sth
