>What is minimalism?
Minimalism involves taking images and reducing them down to basic colors and removing most features. Most wallpapers will not include shadowing or faces, but this is subjective.

1) Refrain from posting images with incredibly intricate designs, vague or conflicting colors, or undefined edges, these make minimalizing very difficult.
2) If you can, provide the name and/or source for archival purposes.
3) Be patient and make sure to thank the artist!
4) Check if your image hasn't already been done before in the booru: http://min.booru.org/

1) Always upload at least 1080p PNGs, try and post transparents too.
2) Look over other people's works! We need good criticism if we want to improve!
3) Watermarks/signatures are not highly necessary.

>Guides to Making Your Own

Use vector drawing: either Inkscape (free) or Illustrator (free if you know what I mean) (don't use raster graphics: Photoshop, GIMP, etc.)

Anything wrong? Did it on a whim and took me two days.
Couple of things:
- the grey stripe on her hoodie is missing
- since it is without shading, the zipper looks jagged and I would have made it like a smooth-ish line (I'm probably guilty of not doing it this way since hindsight's a bitch). and it doesn't go all the way down
- the white line between the red and purple is quite odd, maybe a layering error?

that and some sharp nodes that should be smooth (finger, some parts of the jacket. rule of thumb - clothes and skin, if ambiguous, are generally smooth rather than sharp)

Other than those few things, not bad. I would appreciate it, if you can find the time and desire, to fix the things you agree could be better.
okay, done. the decision to tuck her right arm behind the jacket is probably one of the smartest things ive done recently. hands really suck to draw in. i spent like 30min on shiki 2pics above (even with a donor image) to get her right hand to look okay and i still dont know if it does

>inb4 hands are shit
Nah man, those hands are fine. The left one might look a bit odd, but that's how fingers work. I've seen (and made) bad ones, this is not bad.

Otherwise, I don't see anything wrong with the rest - the lines are clean and smooth (and sharp where they need to be), no layering errors that I can spot, nor are there transparent seams.
The only thing that caught my eye is her neck, seems a bit bulgy, I usually keep them straight or curve slightly inwards. And another personal thing that I have started doing is shading the neck a darker skin color to accentuate the chin, but that is rather situational as well.

Good job, looks nice!

haha hey so not long after typing that, I was kinda down and decided to give my pc another look and saw something I missed my first time around. Fixed it for the time being. Which also has me wondering if the storm killed it or if it was just coincidental. Either way, back to work and I need some help. How would you recommend doing this hand? I can't get it to look right.
source art
Sorry about the delay there.
Well, the only thing I can think of is adding the shading, and maybe fiddling with the thickness of the fingers, but that's about it.

Another option, actually, would be replacing it with one in a less-odd position, but that can create other problems, and maybe this particular pose is what you specifically want, then that's not an option.

I mean, personally, I think it looks fine - I can tell it's a more-or-less correct (anatomically) hand. Generally, I resign to the idea that this style simply does not cooperate well with certain poses and hand gestures

Whenever you or anyone else want to make your own modifications like this you can always ask for the project file.


It's a lot easier to make simple color changes in the source vector rather than through photoshop. And it's not that hard, even if you've never used vector programs
inkscape is free and doesn't take up much space and the basic functionality is similar to any other image editing program, and if there are any questions we're here to help.
Oh thanks man, I'll try that later and post the results. The difference between the two is fed noticeable

Sure, something like this?

Modified a few things, mostly on the right side of her body.
looks pretty nice, with some areas I think could still be improved

Not sure if that was a deliberate style choice on your part, but I like to make skin (and it's shading) more curvy and less pointy as i do in pic related
Also, the armband, which I assume has that shading because it's supposed to be semi-transparent, could be done in various ways, i show one here (which i kinda botched, but the baseline method stands)
There's more parts that I would do slightly differently, but most of it involves more or less the same stuff I already did with the legs. and yes, fingers and toes in minimalist do get weird and cause one to question things, but you did pretty solid there.
I don't know how much of this you've done before, but it seems to me that you've got a good grasp of things, just need to polish your technique a bit
(and the rule of thumb - you can always use less nodes)

Oh yeah, could you please share the name and what's she from, as I'd like it to be added to the archive thing we got going on here http://min.booru.org/

Exactly what the style im looking for, saved
If I want a vector an image what's the estimated time? is 1 hour considered fast or is it considered slow for one image?
It REALLY can depend on what image, but in general juding from my experience with inkscape that would be really fast (but im not great so correct me if im wrong)
oh yeah, like they said, it depends entirely on the image and your experience. The fastest I've done one is about 30 minutes each on these cats: http://min.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=list&tags=booru

First one I ever did took at least 2,5 - 3 hours (this one: http://min.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=208
but a little while ago I remade it from scratch and that took about under half the time: http://min.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=1108
