    lol this took way longer than I thought it would, shows how much I know about dog anatomy :/
    (a little over an hour including some forum lurking)

    Completely threw myself in the dark with this one. Well at least I'm starting to get it now.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Hmm... might restart, 2nd take should be better.

    Going to be fun to add lighting during the painting process, this is the first boss in CV:CotM so the left side will be full of flames and the right side will be illuminated by the moon, should be quite dramatic if I succeed. :O

    Updated.
    Oh in the new update, they show how long it took to draw your painting.
    My Lego city painting took 1 hour and 2 mins.

    Oh, and when you play paintings, they show which tool is being used.

    Didn't think the KI:U stand would ever come in handy.

    I never did either! I was surprised the first time I used it to attempt drawing with it. It really helps to just leave the 3DS so your hands don't cramp up after awhile~

    Homika from Black and White 2. I might add a Koffing later, I forgot. ;-;

    I don't know if this non reference using thing is for me, haha ^^
    I did some of this in front of my computer using an image online, and some waiting in a car from memory. Usually I have an image filling the top screen only to look at and compare line distances and stuff. It came out kind of derpy. I'll try to get used to it though for that sweet non-reference section glory. [;<

    Star whoring FTW!
    I know what you mean, I used to do the same thing. I tend to snap a few pics online with my iPhone and then use the phone pics for references. I stead of straight up copying a pic from the Internet now, I take multiple pics and try to use them to form my drawing. It helps me learn how to draw it originally. Personally I hope it's making me better~

    Like whoring? :3
    I'm in the process of a minecraft drawing and a spyro drawing~
    Hopefully they turn out well. I think the thing I need to focus on more, is actual backgrounds...
    I always go for generic solid backgrounds~

    Rough draft of current project~
    Link here
    One thing ive noticed about myself compared to others is lack of pre drawing. I cant tell if itll help more if I do it or not, i usually just keep erasing/undoing lines and redoing them until they look right instead of making guide lines on a separate layer~
    EDIT: The entire finished drawing will be a chase of a thief through the artisan homeworld~
    When you watch the playback you can see my thief but the angle and way it looked was bugging me so he died :P Ill be redrawing him and a starter background soon~

    Someone should do Kabutops and Flygon being bros, I'd love you forever, and make it sig/avater or some such.

    Just do a shitty skeleton that feels like it's geometrically accurate and draw a bunch of random lines on top roughly, when doing the base drawing you don't really win anything other than wasted time if you do pixel perfect lines, unless it's for example anime where the outer lines are an essential part of the art. Just draw one line on top of the other and keep going like that, use the softedged tool at minimum size.

    Unlike with real paper doing "perfect" lines on a 3DS seems to me at least "impossible" if it weren't for the undo feature. It's the equivalent of trying to write something on a slippery credit card, but with even less precision. I'm constantly amazed how pokefloote manages to do it so frequently and easily in his swapnotes, on the original 3DS even before he got an XL.

    Yup that XL screen must help a ton with drawings :S still rocking my Zelda 3ds, so I'm more compressed when I draw. I make do though and it doesn't really bother me, but man... There are times I wish that screen was bigger :/
    Thanks for the advice though, I think I'll keep doing practice sessions on my own for a little bit to try and see what I'm comfortable with. I feel if I do base sketches like y'all do first, my drawings will look much smoother and more accurate (since there are times my eyes don't Match up or other silly things)
