Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great melting mushroom!

Quite interesting piece! Great detail on the mushroom. The sun might be a little simplistic, though. Some background would also have been nice, rather than just white space.

I guess I'm wary of scouting you because of Tom's "no pencil sketches" remark - and though some of your stuff looks like finished pencil art that I think is acceptable, other stuff does look like quick sketches which should be made private (unfortunately, when scouting, you have no idea which works are meant to be "public" and which are meant to be "private"). Anyway, this is the former.

Have you ever considered going over your stuff with pen? You know, there's such a thing called non-repro blue pencil lead (or something similar) - a shade of light blue which scanners cannot pick up if you scan in greyscale or B&W. It's explained in an article on Dave's Mechanical Pencil Blog. Anyway, it saves the work of erasing your pencil lines after you ink them - just scan it and that's it. Some brands even fade in sunlight, so you can leave it in the sun for a while if you really want them gone. Having the right type of pen is also really important - frankly, I just bought a really great one recently. The ones I was using for all of my previous "inked" artwork (i.e. all of the ones currently on the art portal) were not great. If you go to my DeviantArt (username: niffiwan), you can see the submission "Mad Scientist" in which I used this pen - the line quality is a lot nicer, and it was a lot more enjoyable to work with it.

Anyway, just a few things that might help, or not. Give it a try anyway - buying all that stuff cost me about $10, but it has already saved me a lot of time, and makes my work look better.
