I write for the PxT and made my way here from the our statistics page indicating that someone from the doll palace has linked to us. I gotta say, WOW! I didn't realize our readers extended outside of dA! Good to know
We're very interested in getting a diversified view of the community, so if anyone here is willing to contribute, critique, or what have you, please, do get in touch!
Like Silver_Wolf_Kitty, I also encourage anyone to come and enter anyone of our contests. It'll be great to have someone represent the doll palace and bring in some recognition around here
On tool-shading, I think Elanorea said it best. Tools AND pixel-shading can result in some really ugly things. The result really has less to do with the tools and more to do with the artist, right?
