I use photoshop to edit my drawings and SAI to color them (:

Getting used to a table might take time c: I took almost 1 year to get used to it, but of course some people have more facility.

Good luck with your Tablet x)

Anyway this drawing ;w; And and this boy... Lassi huh ♥ I so wanna nom hug him~

HAHA your nom made me laugh xD

Of course it is. Your artsu makes me drool over again and again TTwTT Ohh well... Now I have problem with barely having any non-fixed ones x'D I try to fix them with the smart blur, but they still look lame. I haven't been drawing much traditionally recently, actually, I haven't been drawing much recently at all. So... There is this thing I have drawn a year ago or such... The only non-'fixed' one I could find for now... Or is it just fixed lamely..? I don't even remember. [link] Yeah, Nyan Cat yaoi all the way x'D Though can you see all these white spots all over the pards drawn with pencils? D: Yush this is just to show, you don't have to waste time trying to fix it as it's old already anyway. If you wouldn't mind, I would post you a recent one when I draw something the next time ;w;
And thanks so much for being willing to help me TTwTT
Ohh, that was merely a mistake o3o x'D

Pfff, you are always so nice xD

Oh, I think that the problem is mostly with the coloring. Because if you color too 'roughly', it's normal that there will be white spots on your drawing.

From what I've learned about traditional coloring is that you must color in circular movements, and do it pretty gently. If you want the color to look darker, don't put a lot of pressure. Instead, you just keep the circular movements on the same spot until you think it looks good enough. At least this is how I usually do :/ not even sure if it is correct though.

And yes, feel free to send me your next scanned drawing, so I can take a look and try to help you out c:

...It's for sure not only me, dear *w* ♥

...But this happens with my linearts, too... x'D I just can't seem to find any nonfixed scanned lineart and my scanner currently is not available (like it is, but I would have to tag it together and all, that's why I rather draw more things and then scan them all at once so I don't have to use the scanner multimple times x'D). Though thank you for the advice. I will for sure try it out. I guess every advice of yours is really, really treasurable ♥

Thank you so much for just being so kiiiiind TTwTT <333
