Holy pie, did I really draw this?!?!?! Wow, this turned out better than expected for a change. I don't think I will do gradient shading too often though, it's really fiddly and time-consuming. I like the way everything turned out about this!

I used this tutorial:

So, I was drawing Kitty, then I realized that I haven't drawn her in so long I kind of forgot some of her details! So, I ended up with an earring-less, simplified shoed, wristbanded, fluffy-bangs version of Kitty. And you know what? I liked it, so I'm keeping this look! Yup, this is what Kitty officially looks like now! (You know what? I think this version would be easier to translate into a 3d model... Not that I'm planning on doing that or anything. *shifty eyes*)

On a last note, pen tool and drawing hands do not mix well for me.

Hope ya likey, 'cuz I sure do!

kittyshootingstarI've switched the color of the glasses a few times, that could be it.

the only other place ive seen your character is in the 'amy needs glasses' series. in which kitty isnt wearing glasses.

kittyshootingstarYou're right! I completely forgot about that!

Gadoinkbtw, are you gonna continue that series?

kittyshootingstar on September 4, 2008, 10:44:23 AM

kittyshootingstarI dunno. I might do a conclusion pic with Amy wearing glasses or something, but I'm pretty out of creative ideas for it.

Gadoink on September 4, 2008, 11:38:58 PM

Gadoinknah, you should totally do that. have sonic standing nearby saying something like 'well thats finally over'. then amy turns and sees him, and starts chasing sonic.

Gadoinkcome one, you should so do that!

KirbytI like how you did her hands. If you didn't notice, I've seen this 7 times. Anyway, I'm starting to like her now.

Bunearywhoa O.o;; i love the coloring on this one! the pose is just totaly adorable ^^ She might be a pretty (sorry for this) smiple character (don't hit me T_T) but she is still realy awesome! i promis i have nothing against these so called "unoriginal" characters (i mean hello? why would someone have anything against them?) Making a fancharacter is hard so who cares if they looks alot like an original character? O.o i mean... just look at Shadow and Mephiles! O.o

Tinner1214That is so awesome. Her head is the best here. And I think that you should continually try new things and take new challenges. Because that's how you improve. The only not great thing in this pic is her arms, which look kind of rubbery and short to me.

Sorry if I am being to critistic and not constructive enough. *hidez from wrath*.

kittyshootingstarIn a world where even scribbles get comments like, "omgZZZ!!!1!1! thatz so ArsOmE!!! *f@vZ*";, people like you who can actually give constructive criticism are rare, and I appreciate it.

In the original sketch, every time I lengthened her arms, it looked funny, and if you imagine how long they'd be if she let them fall, they would still come down to about her knees. I agree that they could be a lot better, but that's why I chose to do it that way.

Tinner1214good point. I'm not an artist tho. I cant draw. Only 3-d modelling and I havent done that in a while. The free trial expired (XD). Nice pic. Ive got a friend, Mechadragon13, who you'd like
she good artist.

kittyshootingstarI use a program called Wings 3d to do my models. It's completely free and never expires!!! It's pretty easy to use too. You should check it out.

Tinner1214Ive tried wings 3d. Autodesk is just easier to use since im used to it and i took a class on it in 8th grade XD.

Wings... I find it hard to use kind of. Just a little. I'ts way different than Autodesk Inventor.

kittyshootingstar on September 13, 2008, 8:30:53 AM

kittyshootingstar on
kittyshootingstarI know what you mean. If I use a program for a while and then switch to another, it's really tricky.

ShadowsGirlfriend1_0My goodness! Look what the doodles have done XD You have improved a WHOLE lot. I am very impressed n_n The shading is very neat also, gradient shading is very hard to work with from what I've learned. Lol I envy your patience and skill XD All I can say now is keep drawing, you can only get better 8D
