Of Mice and Pens by AleximusPrime Of Mice and Pens by AleximusPrime
Yeah...this is TOTALLY not a random gift for :iconpixelkitties: that I made out of the kindness of my heart in my free time when I should be doing homework... :iconliarjackplz:

But seriously, PixelKitties is such a sweet person and a wonderful friend! I was so overjoyed when she came to me, of all people in the world, asking me if I wanted to take part in the production of a calendar being made to help raise money for charity. So as a token of my gratitude, I decided to make this pic. :)

The whole theme behind this pic is computer mice because, just like her, I also use a mouse to make my art rather than a graphics pen and tablet. I mean I have used a pen before many times but only when making something in Paint Tool Sai or if I prefer to make a digital sketch rather than a traditional one. But my tablet and Sai seem to hate each other now so I have been using my mouse to do all my digital art for the past few months and I must say I have not lost my touch. In fact, I've actually gotten better! And of course, everything in this pic was done without a pen, the only thing close enough was using a pencil and ink pen to make the traditional sketch, but after that, everything was done with a mouse. Even that background and the "WHEN YOU'VE GOT MICE?!" text were done with a mouse and are really a bunch of circles and shapes with some trimming done which is essentially what Pixel's art comprises of. See? We're more alike than I ever thought!

So yeah, this is one of my best pieces I've done so far and I did it all in the name of friendship because friendship is magic! Thank you so much for being an awesome friend Pixel and I hope to see you soon at a convention or something! :hug:

And admit it, that title is the punniest thing you've heard all day! XD

What program do you use and how do you shade with it? I'm having trouble shading.

Paint.net and I just use the paint tool on a layer with lowered opacity and then use a gaussian blur.

I can agree.
I tend to use my mouse more when it comes to art and animation and so forth.
I just use my tablet if it's sketchy work.
