With a mouse? Man, I really am impressed. The best I can do while on the budget is scan original pieces and clean them up. I remember doing something similar to this on Paint when I was in middle school, but not as good mind you.
I don't think I'd be brave enough to do any art on my laptop using a mouse.
Oh, it takes a long time to do, and the lines are never really very straight because of it, but...that, to me, adds to my style I guess :)
Coloring takes the longest time, and when I do open eyes, I feel that is my weakest ability.
seriously man why don't you have a tablet yet?
Because I'm poor at the moment :(
Thank you very much :)
