Photoshop Test: Noto Niunkau by The-Knick Photoshop Test: Noto Niunkau by The-Knick
Trying to get used to Photoshop, and I altered the brush settings in order to best emulate the look and feel of brushes in Flash. And, of course, no blurry edges, so I can still easily apply my cell-shaded style.

With that, I tried something simple to draw; a Niunkau.

I still need to work on the brush settings, and get used to Photoshop more. I'll be trying to do all my art in Photoshop for the next month (since I'm running off of a trial), except for commissions -- so you guys won't have to worry about dropped quality.

Noto = Ring/Loop/Circle, in Reun

I wonder how difficult it would be to remove the head from the body's ring?

Theoretically possible, but it uses electromagnetism to keep the head in place, or draw it beck quickly if removed. It should be able to fire its head as a projectile, too.

Alas, there goes my plan for beating it with a well aimed rock. So it uses electromagnetism as a kind of self-telekinesis? Or can it throw other things?

It'll probably be able to control other objects, maybe.

I am now envisioning you needing a metal crate to solve a jumping puzzle, but to get the crate you have to get it from one of those who is rather possessive.

If you want to improve your Flash-to-Photoshop experience, I would suggest LazyNazumi [link] , or Lazy Mouse as it would be in English.

I downloaded this once when working in Gimp to try and do better lineart and it helps a lot. Unless someone at Adobe finally made the change, there's no way to make the lineart as smooth in Photoshop/etc. as it is in Flash. LazyNazumi isn't a perfect fix, but it can help smooth out your lines. It's basically a program you can run along side Photoshop (or really anything) and it will smooth the motion that you make with the mouse. It lags a little, or seems to, but its because it calculates your mouse movements a few seconds after you actually make a movement. Little weird to get used to, but that's how I got the most out of Gimp and PS.

If you wanna make raster graphics, a really capable, but free, program would be Inkscape. For me, I usually have to draw my lineart in another program and trace it, but with Inkscape's .SVG graphics you can freely resize them and use them in other programs and can get a really clean style.

I thought Inkscape was a vector program.

Oh! Oh! Sorry...I heard you say "raster" and I confused the word with "vector" for a moment there. ^^;
