I decided to start working on a new art project today. When I get home (I'm staying after today to make up a science lab) I'll start it. I'm not sure if I'm going to color it, because coloring takes a lot of work. So you can know what I'm talking about, I'll explain the drawing process.
1) Lines and dots. It looks hideously ugly, but it'll show you what goes where.
2) Outlines. Self explanatory. You draw the character.
3) Colors. Takes painfully long.
4) Flare Pen. I ususally go over my drawings with flare pen to make them look good.
It takes days, sometimes even weeks. But I'll get through it, with lots of failed attempts. Not too many (I hope).
