how do you do create something like this where there's not line work, it's just shapes that make up the characters? but if explaining gives away your secret then no worries.
Well I actually use a program, Macromedia Flash 4. I don't use a tablet or anything, I just make lines and bend them, then color and texture. But there is line work at the start. I just remove it after everything has been colored before moving on with the texture work. :) It's usually as simple as double clicking everything on a single layer and poof.
