I was referring to this pic. The sprite in the corner isn't a Gaia avatar? And yes, Gaia is very old. I have like a billion items on my avi, though I have not logged on in like 2 years.

Check your line weight on your inked skteches, sometimes the thickness is all over the place. I'm only saying because i have the same problem and Qbles pointed it out.

I really hate working with lines. I either don't or when I do I vary the line weights so the picture's less boring. I'm trying to hone the skill so I can do it right :B

Yeah, so make sure you set your line weight to pressure sensitivity.

with this lineart, are you using the pen tool, vector lines in something else, or just basic photoshop lines, theyre so clean and smooth and i just cant get it :(

I'm using the pen tool to make vectors. I used to use stroking but it came out too soft...vexelling doesn't allow for resizing to infinity.

It looks great though. You really pull of this style well. It's very clean and fun. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Thank you. I'm glad my new style is a hit. I try to get a lot of butch hartman into it, but I clearly see the scott pilgrim now. I've never known that artist/series before :( I may have seen it once in Border's but never remembered it but subconsciously.

See? Nothing is truly original :D

The lines on her legs are way too thick in comparison to all the lines above them.
Besides that, it's pretty cute. I like the new style, and look forward to you coloring it.

You think that's sloppy? HA! You should see my version of "inking" It's so sloppy I have to put air quotes around inking.
