AlMei: Warm Embrace by carrinth AlMei: Warm Embrace by carrinth
Alternative title was "Bubble Cuddles"... yeah... ^^;

I drew this actually after drawing a crap-load of pictures where Al was the blushing/clueless one and Mei the gushing one. So I twisted it around and this time Alphonse takes the initiative! Omg, I'm on an AlxMei high now. Need moar~! :eager:

Also, working on my coloring. I seem to have gotten cell-style down but I wanted to try something different. Did you know Photoshop has like a bagillion other brush styles? So many! All give different effects! ...And I don't know how to use them properly! :cries:

Do you have CS? They have brush modifiers too so you can actually alter all the existing brushes to suit your tastes too.

My favorite are the watercolor brushes set on pen pressure sensitivity. (theyre the ones between the fuzzy standard brushes and the REALLY fuzzy standard brushes I think).

It would also probably help if you studied form and cast shadow some more, to get a more realistic look for your characters.

(and on a lighter note I am so in love with this pairing!!!)

:Doh: *slaps forehead* The shading! I knew it could have used somemore of that.

Oh! I know what you mean, I've seen the modifiers. Perhaps I'll play around with those later. I'm sort of experimenting with the coloring style as I'm torn between simple, clean flat colors with harsh shading and the softer, fuzzier style.

I think I need to do more coloring practice!

No problem, you're already a great artist.
I used to work as a teachers aide for our school's tech teacher, and my job was just to go around to all the younger students in his class and give 'em help and hints on how to use photoshop :P
It's kinda a habit now XD
