Trying to draw Talim.
I still prefer her SC2 outfit but this one is probably my second favourite.

I suck at drawing with a tablet...

Nice art though. Kindly of curious about what steps you took. I see some outlines for Talim, so I’m kind of curious.

Thanks.

Honestly I never got the hang of actually “drawing” with a tablet either so I’ve gone back to starting all my pieces in pencil. (Plus it’s nice to have a physical sketch IMO). Screen tablets are supposedly better but I’ve tried both the iPad and Microsoft surface and still find drawing traditionally better. Basically I use my tablet only for lineart and colouring.


For the Talim picture I had to make separate layers for her jacket and hat. Both sets of layers are above the lineart layer so they can be removed without altering the original. Separating details on individual layers can get out of hand but it’s a good way to make alterations.

(It doesn't suit her really).

Hiya! I've been trying to get into finishing my artwork, I sketch a lot in pencil, but I never really color them, I've been wanting to learn how to do that but I don't know what software would be best for it, could I ask what your using for these? Your shading/coloring is really good btw!

I use a program called Paint Tool SAI since its cheap (~50USD) and not overly complicated.

Photoshop is what a lot of professionals use and swear by but I say a hobbyist can get by without it.

GIMP & MediBang are some free programs that I’ve have and still use now every now and then.
I’d recommend trying out MediBang because the UI in gimp can be a bit unintuitive.

Awesome! I've used gimp before as a photo editor, never really thought of using it for drawing, should definitely try that out. First I've heard of MediBang, definitely gonna check it out. Thanks!

Talim got nerfed? As far as I know her WNS B+K has a smaller hit window. Or were you expecting something better? May have to check the notes again. BTW nice picture even though Talim is sad.
Thanks. The pic is referencing the RE changes for patch 1.3, I was just super late in posting which conincedentaly was right before patch 1.4...

By WNS B+K you mean WNS A+B & WNS B? Yeah, I think they track less now. Honestly I was expecting Talim and other characters to get nerfed otherwise they'll be too strong.

Oh, yeah, I meant WNS A+B. That was a typo.

Seeing the picture a bit better now that is the RE input. Despite the universal nerf I still feel Talim is pretty strong. You just have to be careful to use RE.
