  • aCup of Tea
    aCup of Tea Year ago

    Never thought I would participate but I might try this one. Just a question can I adjust visibility of the lines? Like let's say if I paint over some lines and they get thinner or if I lower the opacity for some parts for focus ( I don't mean to delete the lines entirely bot softening them)?
    Thank you.

    • My Little Twinkie Dash

    I would enter but I don’t have the time cause I have midterms coming up...
    I’ll definitely keep an eye out for the next one though!

      Teresa Tomás it's a zip file, you have to unzip it first. Google how to unzip a file if you don't know how to do it

    Jazza I have a question
    I am bad at art
    I try but My artworks never looks that good
    Would It be bending the rules if I were to enter the beginner category since this is the case?

      Probably anyone under 14, maybe 15.

      But like what is the oldest age that is applicable to young?

    • crowned-skulls

      Kipper Red Beginner category is for people who are very new to art or are very young. If either applies to you I suggest you enter in said category.
