With Ms Paint you can't work on layers so I believe it's better to use some more advanced tool for this, yet if you want to work in Ms Paint it is possible. Just a bit more tricky when it comes about erasing the elp lines :)

I'm glad You are willing to try it :)
Don't worry about tools and software, it can be applied to anything :)
Every drawing software is simmilar (except for Paint), so it's just a matter of some adjustments ;)

I only use MS Paint and Gimp, but I don't really understand Gimp, so I usually use Paint.

Qba016 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think that Gimp is really nice tool to work in and you should stick to it more :) If you get used to it and learn some tricks it'll become your best art-friend, trust me ;)

For the pass two years I've been trying to do this style and I've referred to this tut as well as others, and just studying the actual MH art... but I just can never get it. 
I think the jump from Disney to Monster High is a rough one xD

BUT as I am inspired by your lovely skills and great pieces, I will try this style once again. *fight music*

Qba016 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah I think that I had a bit easier work as I transfered from Winx which is closer to MH than Disney is. Get it, girl! :D

:iconspiceprincess:
SpicePrincess Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2013  Student General Artist
Yep! 
Those stepping over from the Winx fandom haven't had much trouble, case and point, yourself xD

I think it's because Disney/Dreamworks/semi-realism has a lot of round shapes, soft shading and curves, and everything is kinda gentle and whispy and smooth. Whereas Monster High and Winx styles are more angular, with hard turns and points and strong color with strong shading... and MH with that crazy thick black outline.  And the proportions are a lot more abstract from reality. 

but that's  never a reason not to try xd

Qba016 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's 100% right. I think that Disneyish style transitions whole lot better into EAH as they are smooth and gentle in lines and shading :)
Reply
:iconspiceprincess:
SpicePrincess Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2013  Student General Artist
Yeah XD That's why it was easier for me to draw my EAH characters.  Round faces and softer lines.

Yess! I was pretty much struggling with Penny's legs. they are so round! as her head and all the smoothiness xD

Aww pshh you didn't do bad at all. I think you did a wonderful job at the style.

But I can see why you'd have issues. The legs are very different from MH, and pretty close to the average Disney style leg.

Qba016 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's why I'm closer to either Winx of MH and I guess my personal style would be as well ;)

Hi! I'm just now deciding to upload my drawings of my mh ocs to deviantart. I live this website, and I use my iPhone 5 to go on deviantart. how do you make the bio pages and make the picture of the oc look so animated? Please reply

:iconqba016:
Qba016 Featured By Owner May 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, hello Zippy :)
As for the bio pages of characters (as seen on official Monster High site) there is this blank template sheet aroud Deviantart, which You can easily find ;)
As for the second question I'm not sure what do You mean. Would You mind to rephrase it? Cuz I dunnoif You mean coloring or posing or what? :)

I used this for my latest OC, Rosie Ringer. I have to say, this is far easier when you have a drawing tablet! Great tut - love it.
