For those wondering why I haven't been posting stuff lately.

I've been working on a single drawing for the past few weeks, an few hours at a time. It's better than anything I've done so far, but I'm trying out lots of new things so it will take a while. The good news is, I asked one of my favourite artists RiceGnat for a few tips. Actually, after asking for permission if it was okay to ask him a few things I ended up sending him a rain of questions. I asked him how he goes about skin, hair and some technical photoshop thingies. 
He did answer 1/3 of them, and will continue to answer the rest if he finds time to sit down and take a look at them. Or so he told me. 

Anyways, with the tips he sent me about the skin I reworked what I already had, for the better, in less time actually.
Improvements, ho! (title drop)

While I'm waiting for the answers regarding the hair I've been working my way through the background.
That's all on me btw, the background. Although each object takes several attempts till I'm satisfied with it, the results are worth writing home about. Ofc, with the addition of an object I did earlier (rocks, brush, trees, etc.), time spent on it decreases as well.

All in all, something for you to look forward to. No previews, I like to keep it a surprise till it's finally done.
A small give-away: It's my favourite character from Danmachi.
Okay, another one: It's an elf.

I'll leave the imagination to you.

And as always, thank you all for the support!

The name's Julien Sontohartono.

I'm an amateur artist aiming to get slightly better at drawing manga. I don't aim to be the best, not even for a career. I just want to improve my skills so I can eventually draw anything I have in mind.

Most people know me from my (and Grendo's) MLP Google Chrome Themes, but I've stopped creating those and focus solely on my anime style drawings from now on. You can still find the themes on the link at the bottom of this wall of text.

Feel free to comment and rate my work. I almost always reply to comments, most likely with some delay, but I do try to interact with the people who appreciate what I do. And as always, thanks everyone for the continued support.

I just looked up what Flutterbat was. Although I really like her looks, I'm sorry to say that I've stopped creating themes a long time ago.

I'm sorry to hear that. You have my condolences.

If you loved him, you should treasure what little he has left you with.
I consider memories to be an important part of who we are. Cherish those memories, if you will.
