@Kilo_Martinez You're doing great!
I wish I could have done a better job on the face, but color overlap was not working any more...

@Kilo_Martinez: Very nice work! I like your linework on the b/w tree.
@Lilifish: well done! Terrific work with the lines, Mario's all nice and chubby. Mini Toad is a cool touch as well.
As an aside, when the colour overlap doesn't work, sometimes it might help to erase lightly around the affected areas with the plastic eraser and layer again. As long you remember which colours you used, usually patching up isn't a problem with coloured pencils.

Thanks for the advice! The problem is that materials don't behave in NAA as when I use them in reality, and I'm not used to it! But for my first colored pencil lesson I'm very happy! (Actually, it was the second, my bad!)

Yeah, NAA has its quirks. Pretty good for a first lesson though!

Not sure how I feel about this lesson. Overall not too bad. I'm not happy with the imprecise tracking of the stylus in the corners. I find its hard to draw/paint accurately along the screen borders. Anyone else feel the same?

I don't have the Goomba or Mario lessons. Are they released in North America? Anyone willing to share? That would be much appreciated.

For the 2nd random challenge. From the pepper mini lesson.

Oh my god, that's freaking amazing!
When I saw it, I couldn't help but compare it to my original version of that lesson, and wow! It was bad before, but now it looks like total garbage. Great work!
The lighting is great, very life-like.
Is this how pencils look in the New Art Academy? Or did you use some other technique?

Please don't say that! It's just a different approach to the same subject. I like the vigorous linework in your version, it captures the pepper well as a solid object.
Yeah, graphite pencils and a stick of some kind (lead?) I had to make a bit of effort for tones between the 2B and HB pencils. NAA's 2B is dark, almost like a real-life 4B pencil, while the HB is around B. The body of the pepper was blocked in with the side of the pencils, with spots at the top erased for highlights. Pencil tip for the stem and base of the stem, then softened to grey with the side of the pencils.

@Kilo_Martinez I felt the same way, so I changed the avocados composition lowering it. But you got a very nice result!
@Shiromikio Lovely pepper! I agree with you about the graphite pencils, and you've done great erasing to create highlights. I still use the eraser only to fix my mistakes...
@Morphtroid I'll try to make something this weekend!

2 more lessons

I just went through this whole thread and wooow. Just got the game a few days ago but haven't had a chance to sit down and do a lesson (I want to be able to do one in one sitting, no stopping and saving all the time).
I had no idea you could create lessons for sharing! I'm a bit overwhelmed now, I guess I should start with the basic lessons to get comfortable with the game. The small 3DS stylus makes it hard to draw, I messed around in freestyle mode and didn't quite like how the screen reacted to my stylus. I might have to get an actual pen sized one for the game. :/
just another day...

@Lilifish: thanks. Lol, my main use for the eraser is still for fixing mistakes. Terrific hand study! It captures the folds of the skin and slight variances in tone very nicely. I also like the clean hatching along the fingers, and on the statue as well.
@bluecat: welcome to the thread.

@Shiromikio The hand mini lesson drawing reference looks like a lighting study sketch (?), and I wanted to do something more like I would do with traditional media. I still find hatching very frustrating as there are no thin lines, but it works for me with overlap blending. I think I figured out after the Venus lesson, so the hand lesson went smoothly
@akiraken Nice work! I specially like the other Pikmins in your gallery!
@bluecat Welcome! Saving is very useful when there is no undo function! I find it specially useful when I'm going to try something next that I'm not sure.

I got it today for 20 bucks. I miss the colour picker that Colours! 3D has, but it has better tools for drawing than Colours! 3D. I like to doodle crap even if I am not that great at drawing and colouring (I'd rather draw than colour anyway). I experimented with pastels.

@Donjwolf: very nice drawing! Great expression on the dog's face, I also like the tousled fur lines.

Tried Free Paint mode for first time. I'm impressed with how well this program works despite some little annoyances. I'm happy enough with it.
I will probably still fuss over the details on this drawing but here it is for now.
