If you look at my oekaki's, they look so unclear and unanimated. How does everyone make it look so clear, realistic, and animated? My oekaki/s show that I have struggled. And I did. Tips and answers, please? :]

Fist, I think you should sketch out the picture then use it as a guidlines for more
animated things. c:
Second, us ethe layers, coloring it will be easier and put shadeesss.~
That's all I can really say. x]

But when I fill it in , the filler doesn't work, much.
It leaves spaces that I have to use a pen to fill in little by little.

That's why you use layers and not the filler. Use a layer underneath the outline of your
drawing. Use the pen tool or pencil with the color you want and color whatever it is you
need to. Then once you done you can erase the colors that come out of the outline without
harming the outline itself for it should be on a layer above the colors. c:

I never knew what layers were and what they`re used for until now.

You're welcome.
You can do that with everything but make sure you never put two close colorings on the
same layer.
It could mix into the other color and make is a bit difficult, love. <3

Struggle is one of the things that help you improve. :D All artists struggle at one point
in their early oekaki hobby, and you shouldn't feel bad because you did. 

Anyways, yeah, like what Erika said, you should make use of layer. ^^ They're there for
you. Unlike other oekaki boards, this one only offers Shipainter and Pro and you can make
multiple of layers for different things. 

Following up with Erika's layer tips, it's best to you separate layers to color separate
pieces of things, like for example one layer for skin, another for pants, another for
hair. It's really handy especially when you mess up on coloring the shirt for example and
you can just erase it and not worry about having it hit another thing that you're
coloring. :D Yeup, yeup. -nods-

It takes great time and effort. Really depends you try drawing the oekakis.  
I first make a rough sketch then a sketch and then I try outlining without lifting up my
mouse too many times. Or if you're using a tablet then try not to lift up the pen too
much. It's not like a a pencil where you can control the tablets. xD

Using layers and learning how to shade better adds a ton of detail.

For me, the shading makes a big improvement.
Also, time.
It takes me at least 2 hours to draw something.
Sometimes less but thats the average.
If you rush, it looks rushed.

I agree with QueenofGreen

shading does make it seem to have more picture to it than just regual colors
it might take time but it's worth the time in the end

and  don't rush on oekaki's because it might not come out how you expect it
o be
