Well the past few days I’ve been making fancels… Rather –learning- how to make them by trial and error. I can tell you one thing, they are very fun to do but requires a lot of patience which unfortunately I’m lacking. I know there are a lot of fancels out there and they look gorgeous but I wanted to make my own for those shows that are extra special to me. Of course since my work is quite amateurish and needs a lot of improvement, what I put up is mostly just to say to myself… “Lookie… You actually finished one. Hehe.” Maybe someday the work will improve and I’ll move on to more detailed stuff. Right now I’m just learning how to blend colors, use a lightbox (I got one for cheap yay!) and figure out which ink to use on those lines. Some of my test have them all running except for the deco color but the deco color is too thick. *sigh* I wish there was a good guide on the net what to use. But oh well… Maybe someday. In the meantime while I am saving up for my cel purchase, I’ll just practice more and you’ll see my shameless fancel updates LOL… Well maybe someday they’ll be nicer. I’ve only done this the last two or so days and I’ve never painted all my life. X-D

I think they look great! Especially for your first effort at painting. They are definitely much better than anything I could create, so keep on practicing. You''ll get the hang of it before you know it! ^.^

They look nice to me. I have tried making some FanCels. They are a lot of fun to do. I do mine off production sketches i own, that dont have a cel of their own.

I hope you get better and better.

You''re all right. Practice makes perfect. Boo! I wish my mom gave me some patience gene. But I shall try and thanks for the encouragement.
