I Miss You: Should You Orphan Your Character?
First of all, I freely admit that what I say isn't gospel. I am a total amateur at art and writing. I've learned everything that I know via the internet and a few drawing books. It's just that I appreciate all of the tutorials here on dA that have helped me out, and I want to put a little bit of my own methods back in.
Be warned: this is a really sensitive issue. I really hope that this isn't something that is just taken lightly by an author.  This discussion may also be a bit too gruesome for some, so viewer discretion is advised.
Some of the best and worst characters ever put to paper have been orphans.  But are you writing Batman or just another Mary Sue?
Parents are key figures in shaping who we are, so you should have a very good reason to off characters with such impact.  They can be well-thought out and if done right can provide a compelling insight into the psyche of their child.  Maybe a neat-freak had parents who were absolute

(Upd) List of shortcuts + 100 members!!!
Hi everyone!
:bulletgreen: FireAlpaca 1.0.35 is out Remember to download the newest version if you haven´t already! Also, check out the nifty Japanese site with lots of cute Alpaca illustrations: (if it tries to go back to other language, just go to the top bar and choose the little Japan flag).
:bulletgreen:We´re past 100 members! You people rock! It´s awesome that this little group keeps expanding. Share the love! ^o^)/
:bulletgreen: List of shortcut hotkeys Everythingfirealpaca on tumblr compiled a list of shortcuts for FireAlpaca that I´m sure everyone will find really useful, so I´m posting it here:
Note: This is a list of Mac shortcuts, please see the reference below. Also, some commands like Quit will not work on PC, so I´ve added the PC one.
"(Cmmd is Ctrl, Delete is Backspace, and Option is Alt on PC):
Cmmd+Option+drag = resize brush
Shift = draw strai
