Thanks :) his back is meant to be super-short, that's just what he is [as I said in the OP]

This is the finished image, I flat coloured and lined Luce [left off his prism markings because I'm lazy and the setting is dark, and prism markings don't show up much if at all in the dark] and the other person shaded and did the lovely Artemis [the liver red dun roan mare, with blue markings] who is her character and the design belongs to her. Species design is mine. Arti is Luce's mate btw :)

the dA upload

I'm on deviantart as 2close2dasun.

Gimp is installing as I speak, I've recently become inspired by your artworks and have always been interested in looking into digital art :)

You are really really talented!

One question, though: What exactly are they??
    05-16-2013, 05:12 AM
Flash Unicorns :) my original species.
the species sheet

I'm glad you're inspired :) show me what you do with that, k?

Well, I'm trying, but,

I can't get it out of grayscale and make it paint in colour :( it just does different shades of gray arrrggghhhhhhh

ETA I love your breed!!! I wouldn't mind a real-life captive myself :)

Chokolate if you go to the image bar at the top then mode>RGB you should be able to get colour.

I hate it when it does that :P I actually can't figure gimp out to save my life. Or paint shop pro, or any of that.

I paint in photoshop cs5 with a Genius tablet and occasionally I'll use my mouse. I started with PS Elements 5.0 then trialled cs3 for a while, then was given cs2, and was later given a copy of cs3... and then when I got my current compy my uncle gave me cs5

Thanks Emma!! I was looking in all the wrong places but what you said worked instantly, lol.

BEP, I have to use gimp because it's free, and I don't want to pay

Lol Chokolate neither do I! [only one I paid for was PSE5 and that was YEARS ago!]

A pen tablet makes digital art so much easier, but it -is- possible to be amazing and only ever use a mouse. I'll never forget, years ago, seeing a STUNNING piece of a Friesian. The artist had created rainbows [think oil slick shine] in the shine on his coat, and the piece was incredibly detailed, accurate, and beautiful. Artist comments said it was done with a mouse. Can't imagine the number of hours of practice that would have gone into getting so good - with a MOUSE. Seriously. That's just insane.

Wow, that must have been something.

I'm using a mouse, and I can't draw lines because it's wonky and I can't continue it.

I finished my first ever lineart colouring-in but don't know how to save it as a recognisable file - is it possible?
    05-31-2013, 05:02 AM
I can't draw with a mouse either :P it's a real skill and I would imagine it takes a LONG time to perfect.

Not sure with gimp but in Photoshop you have to go file -> save as -> choose your filetype [I use PNG but lots of people use JPEG or GIF - PNG just retains transparency {though not layers!} and quality, whereas JPEG flattens the image {meaning your transparent bits end up white, or whatever your background colour is} and GIF sacrifices a LOT of quality.
