    Really nice shading with the pencil works! I used to be pretty good with that, but I've been focusing way more on using Photoshop and improving my skills with it that I lost my touch with the pencils. It usually requires a lot of time and patience, and both are something I lack thereof! Your Viera piece looks great!

    I am just... that ace!

    Ty! I said I wanted to go from pencil > graphical, but what I really meant was digital graphics like what you've been doing, I am a little nervous to take the leap but I think with a little hard work I'll get the hang of it ^_^ What photoshop programs do you usually use and do you know of any tutorial guides that might be good?

    I have Photoshop CS2 which I managed to snag a free copy of. It's not bad, but the learning curve is pretty steep, so it may take some time to get used to. I'm still learning how to make the most out of it myself. If you're willing to shell out some money or can get a cracked copy, I would recommend Paint Tool SAI as your graphical tool of choice. It's pretty easy to learn and use

    I'd seen the Vieira one (bottom of your first post) before on your DA account, but I just want to say that the chocobos? I love them. Fantastic!

    Looking pretty good! One thing I'm wondering; do you set the colour levels of your scans at all? They seem to have a pretty high grey-value and low contrast. When making photo's/scans of my drawings/sketches, I always make sure to up the contrast and make the paper show as white. There's an easy function for it in Photoshop. Might be personal preference, but it always helps me make the drawing stand out from the paper more.

    Edit: this could be the result :0

    So far I have only been using my pretty average phone's camera to get my drawings uploaded. I wasn't aware I could get those kind of results from changing the contrast settings in the camera, I'm definitely going to try it! I do use Online image editor pixlr free - fix photos direct in your browser to edit things after I'm done. Eventually I will be buying a scanner and some real software, that is when I will also start trying my hand using line art to convert to digital graphic/art soon :3 I still have much to learn so thank you very much for the tip!
