Thank you <333
For each colored drawing, it takes around 1-5 hours maybe but when I’m doing a full on illustration (which I haven’t done in a while) it can take days that would add up to maybe 10-15 hours or more. I never really keep track of the time when I draw haha sorry.
As for the deep shading, it really helps if you play around with the levels (Ctrl+L). I do it as I’m painting (not in the end) because a lot of times I’m not very bold when I color and it always looks too light. So I change the levels to make it darker and then I continue to tweak it.
Let me know if you have any more questions :)
My first tablet was a wacom bamboo fun. It was small but I never had any problems with it. I’d recommend it for first timers since it’s super affordable compared to other tablets! I think I bought mine for around $100. It might be cheaper now :)
hope this helped!

That’s my original character, Rin, from my story “Westbound Samurai”. It doesn’t have much of a plot yet but you can check out the tag for it on my tumblr if you want.
and no I don’t have a webcomic at the moment but I’d love to start one someday :)
 just saw your second message and it’s no problem! I’m glad you have an interest in my OCs :D
