I thought it might be a good idea to do a few quick gesture sketches ~

I am an experienced pixel artist specialising in portrait work, sprites and hand-drawn maps. High end work, fair rates. I can also adapt to and reproduce pre-existing art styles with near flawless accuracy.

Ah, yeah, I assume the smudgeguard will prevent further deterioration too, except for from the pen itself. I'm tempted to peel off the original coating (they actually replaced it in the winter when I sent it in for repairs, but I destroyed it in 6 months again) with an off brand one that isn't as grainy. I was also using one of those microfiber cloths for glasses to clean it about twice a day, and a clorox wipe every day before work, but whatever else I was doing caused the entire middle area to have a rough feeling from just using it all day. I suppose in your case, never touching the screen with your hand has preserved it... But I also wonder, how often do you change your nibs?

Every time I draw, it's as if I'm wiping the screen, technically.

But that's the other strange thing. I've only ever used three nibs- In other words, I never change them unless one day I think I kind of have to, for who knows what reason. The last one, I changed it to an older white nib, because I like how it looks on the black pen.

Hey Atnas, my own Cintiq still has the screen looking like new because I picked the habit of always drawing with one of those smooth wipes that often come with glasses. Been doing it ever since the start because I've used it often in hot climates, and resting the hand on the hot screen overheats it, plus the sticking and body sweat.

The thing is that using a sliding cushion like that improves my drawing speeds considerably. I can do clean smooth strokes from edge to edge with my hand resting comfortably on the screen.

Just don't forget to receive and integrate good palette critique, which can be invaluable sometimes.

I'm not sure what to think of the cloud slow-scrolling on the third scene instance, or the cloud choices used. And also, anywhere else, really.

There's too many clouds. It's distracting and noisy.
Ground is too noisy as well on the first scene. I was expecting something more dynamic when the animation was by itself.

The scrolling really feels off for some reason.

In the first scene, you could try slowing it a bit.

In the third scene, I'd suggest a different and more dynamic layout, to aim the eyes into the character as she flies through the air. Composition matters, everywhere.

Ground and distant forest could do with improvements as well, especially the ground when she leaps. Play around the shadow before the leap, as well as having the ground zoom out accordingly at the right timing.

Wow, what a process. It's a treat for the eyes with each update. ^
