Clover Chain ^^ (in color!) by AkiIsAwesome42 Clover Chain ^^ (in color!) by AkiIsAwesome42
(drawn with pencil, colored with watercolors)

link to lineart -> [link]

So I colored it XD and let me tell you, doing the shadows of EACH INDIVIDUAL CLOVER was a PAIN IN THE- . . . . . . . . . . . . .

-_-' XD!

Anyways, I've started to notice something; and it's really beginning to irritate me -_-. Does anyone notice how SOME of my drawings look a bit more yellow-toned and fade-y, whereas others are crisper and the colors are darker/stand out more?

The difference is, the yellow-toned version is the result of just scanning in the pic as it is, and the crisper-color version is when I put something called the "fading correction" to the 'low' setting.

Thing is, I take pride in not tweaking anything I draw traditionally in photoshop - my dad thinks it'd be great if I DID do small touch-ups in photoshop, and kudos to those of you who know how to do so and do it expertly :D, but I guess I tend to want to stay true to the original of whatever I draw. If it's crappy, it's crappy, and I don't want corrections from a computer program to be the only good thing about a drawing of mine.

I don't know, maybe I'm an idiot XD but that's just the way I feel. I feel great when the 'faded' look FITS a drawing I do, and I don't want to use "fading correction", but whenever I DO use it, I feel like I'm breaking my 'untouched' standard . . . >_<

(btw, this particular deviation DOES have "fading correction" on it -_-)

^^; The way Neji sees it, he's just placing them somewhere obvious where Tenten can easily access them <XD He thinks logically that way :D! ^^ Thank you :hug: !

It looks like Neji is trying to get Tenten's attention, but she is too busy to notice xD Great job!
