Thank you so much! ; u ;

I do have tips yes :D

These are my favorite tips and I highly recommend you try out all of them
- Alt+spacebar+dragging the cursor will rotate your canvas.
- Hold the spacebar and drag your cursor to move around the canvas
- Hold Ctrl+Alt, and you can change your brush size without having to go back to the brush panel
- If you go to View > New (It's on the top menu) and you can have another instance of your file open (Example)
- If you click a layer thumbnail and hold Shift, and it will select everything on that layer.
- Layer clipping! Color in all your bases, and then keep all the messy shading on a separate layer and click the "clipping group" option, and it will all neatly erase it self outside the lines
- Press H to flip your image. This makes it easier to weed out mistakes.
- It makes your life a lot easier if you organize your layers into folders!!!

For actual painting tips
- Try to keep shading subtle! Don't go overboard with details because more does not always mean good.
- I highly recommend having another copy of your picture open (Refer to the New>View tip I told you about) so you can always see the big picture. It might look good up close, but it looks like crap from far away. If you can always see the whole picture, you can make sure it always looks good.
- Composition is super important! Seriously I cannot stress this enough. This ties in directly with the tip above. Sometimes you can have a fantastic drawing, but the composition completely ruins it. I have seen a lot of fantastic drawings that get dragged down by composition. Here's a really helpful list of composition links to help you get started. Seriously. COMPOSITION IS SO IMPORTANT. It gets overlooked so much that it is legitimately saddening.

Good luck my friend!! <333

i really, really like this a lot.. except the eyes. the eyes just break it all in two pieces.. the blur and the rest which is super detailed and clear, and perfect.. it would've been perfect without the blurry eyes, why did you decide to go with the blur? other than that, love the details all over!

i do appreciate trying to do something different, and it really is by making the eyes like this.. but it takes away a bit from the surrounding details. again, love your style, but some nicely detailed eyes would complete your works perfectly instead. it's just my humble opinion. keep up the awesome work!

Distance, this is beautiful!! I'm running out of positive adjectives to describe your work, I feel so repetitive.... I love both of their faces. I can see the noses and mouths perfectly here XD I love the blonde's bow. The ice cream looks delicious. And their clooothess :heart: Their clothes is probably my second favorite thing about the picture (first being their cute little faces, hair, and bows. Though that's several things). Something seems a bit different about the clothes here compared to your other pictures, or I'm crazy. But I love the wrinkles on their jackets and the fur and turtleneck parts.
