EDIT 1.28.2013: So...what do you guys like better? My plain, black and white bases, the way I colored #12, or the way I colored #13 and #14? I personally like #13 and #14 best, but I need to know what you guys like better. And I refuse to make pixel bases because that's actually MORE work than the way I do it in Paint Tool Sai...so, yeah, pixel bases are out of the question. Plus, they look messy (please don't take that as an offense everyone, that's just my own opinion on them)....
I DO like using pixel bases for poses and expressions and such, though...But I actually never trace over bases. I look off of them while drawing. But I know that most people that use bases trace over them.
The only reason I trace over images in Paint Tool Sai is to make bases, coloring pages, and to help with the Sailor Moon anatomy/art-style/expressions for whenever I was drawing my "Flower Children" manga. (I'll re-draw that in the future...it sucks right now...) Most of the time, I don't even need screenshots to help with my manga, I just look off of things (like eye-styles, face-styles in general, etc.)...But I DO like using the screenshots because in my manga, I tried to make everything look like an official Sailor Moon anime continuation...
I think I got off topic or something.
EDIT: So, since I can't create a poll, I'll just create some sort of tally-thing....I don't know how helpful that'll be, but oh well lol. I might just make two different versions of all my future bases (one black and white and one colored).
People who prefer black and white: 1
People who prefer colored: 0
People who don't have any preferences: 0
(I can't count myself in this lol )
[Is going to bed for the night, um, I mean morning...it's 1:25 AM here lol... ]
EDIT 1.27.2013: I know I don't get on this account very often, but when I do, it's usually to check messages and to upload new deviations. I feel bad about not working on any bases for a while...so I'm going to work on a few today (or whenever I have the time) and then upload them here. I want to say to everyone "Thank you!" for all the faves and I'm really happy that you guys like my bases enough to use them for your own characters! (And thanks for giving me credit too lol! )
OLD (My default entry for this account):
I'm not new to deviantArt; actually, I've been on dA for about 5 years now (according to my old account, SailorRocket ) I've decided to make bases! Preferablly Sailor Moon bases, but I might eventually go to other anime (like Cardcaptor Sakura, which I own the DVDs for so I can take screenshots). Just to make it clear, I own the entire Sailor Moon series + the movies on DVD (including Sailor Stars) as well as Cardcaptor Sakura. I will be taking my own screenshots, and then turning them into bases. I'm not stealing anything from anyone.
EDIT: Just so you know, I don't color in my bases. The reason why, is because I feel that whoever adopts the base should color it the way they want to.
If you need it in .psd format, just let me know and I'll upload it to 4shared and then send the link to it to you. Well, I WOULD upload the .psd file to dA, but I don't really know how to upload .psd or .sai files to dA....
EDIT 2: Do you want me to color them in like all the other bases are done...? I personally like them this way though...but it's what everyone else wants.
