My 2012 Art Summary by Hawkeye-Ryuu My 2012 Art Summary by Hawkeye-Ryuu

January-February was where I started getting used to the sketch-and-lineart business...the first step that I now use regularly.

April was where I started doing lineless art, so as to make it look similar to the paintings. It also marked the beginning where from this point on, I'd be doing a fusion of the style shown in the Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog Archie comics and anime/manga.

May was where I redesigned some of the characters as well as add the shine on the RIGHT side of the pupil rather than in the center.

Mid-June-July was where I started giving male characters three tufts of hair and female characters four tufts of hair exclusively.

August marked a permanent turning point in which I changed my eyestyle from having the pupil being black to having it being a darker shade of the iris's colour.

October was where I switched to Gimp and started doing shading and backgrounds. I also took a step further in changing my eye colour to what it is today.

Mid-November-December was where I did 3-D effects with the eyestyle as well as permanently change my eyestyle to better fit the anime/manga style...and I've been using it as of today! :)

Overall, 2012 has been a year of great improvisation on my part. So, here's hoping I can try to make a difference in the new year!

Bring it on, 2013!!

And yes, I AM requesting critiques for once. So go ahead and give it your best shot...just as long as it's nothing TOO negative!
