>7> Almost wrote "2012" for the year~ ehehehe (happens every year)... Sooo my friend received her gift. Now I can show the painting I mentioned from before:



Cel painting of Sword Art Online! Background credit to my good friend- caelestre
Ignore the errors. -@;;;; I know Asuna's hair color came out funny. Her hair color didn't want to mix for me. But I did purchase the paint color of her hair after for future needs.

It's hard to explain this since people keep asking how to make these... .-. It's better to show in person. Was taught how to do these by animation teacher (extra credit for each one you did). It's drawn on transparent paper with a fine line sharpie. Then it is painted with ACRYLIC paints on the REVERSE SIDE (flip the sheet over) so that way the colors and lines will appear neat on the front. And since the sheet is transparent, you can put any background you want behind it. >7>; If you can understand that, then good good! Otherwise, le Tsu apologizes for a potentially poor explanation.

Ahhhhhhh!!! So~ I was painting a Sword Art Online cel painting for a friend of mine. We were both busy with finals and were late with each other's Christmas gifts. But luckily, we alerted each other beforehand even though we didn't mind waiting.

The cel painting was one of the things I was going to give her along with 2 plushies (she LOVES plushies). I was waiting for the paint to dry for the past 3 hours. ;7; I thought maybe 1-2 hours would do the trick, but NOPE!!!! 3 hours!! Ehhh... guess the layers of acrylic paint were pretty thick.

After it dried, I scanned a copy so I could share later on FB (will do it after she receives so she can be surprised, kukuku). ;7; AND SO IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, I TIPTOED PAST MY PARENTS' BEDROOM (NOTE: the door to their room was open), DOWN THE STAIRS, ACROSS THE WOODEN FLOOR, and placed the package by the garage door so my mom could ship it in the morning (she works at the post office so she knows a lot about mailing). THEN I TIPTOED BACK TO MY ROOM (thank you heater for turning on so my presence could be soundly disguised~)!!!

GAHHHHH... I did it... I did it... *stares at clock* Oh my~ 3:30am. I'm going to head to sleep now. O^O I guess I'll see everyone in the morning then! Ninja Tsu, signing off! *salutes*

It is fun! XD Acrylic paints are nice and cheap too. 60 cents to $1.50 per bottle of paint. Perhaps the only big expense are the transparent sheets. @_@ I think I got a box of 100 sheets for $33. EEESH...

Yeah, I have some acrylics, I've just never used them :iconotlplz: They're so much cheaper than watercolors, too :)

Well, that's not that bad, my paper is like $10 for 20 sheets, so that's actually cheaper :P

It's one of the huge sketchpads, but it's not even sketchpaper, it's Bristol :P And it's like 14x17, so yeah... even the smaller stuff is still expensive though.
