I've been doing some Gaia avatar arts lately. LOOK! A GUY! He's rather slim and I didn't give him and muscle definition so I don't know if that really counts, but still. He's an avatar of Akvedot's, a zOMG! clan member, with whom I did an art trade. And the second belongs to Chisuchina, also a clan member. Both of these pieces gave me some more practice with my tablet and openCanvas.
As I'm still getting used to oC, I've realised that it's near impossible to get a fully opaque line. This bothers me when I'm doing lineart...So I've taken to darkening the line art in whatever photo editter-thing I have at hand and then colouring. I've also increased saturation a bit afterwards in Windows Live Photo Gallery.
