I've never ever drawn anything on the computer before, apart from earlier today when I was messing around with the drawing tablet I just got for my birthday. So this was my first attempt, and holy CRAP was it hard! I tried to make it easy on myself by just tracing a picture I'd drawn by hand, but it turns out I can't trace for crap, at least not on a tablet. And shading! Oh my gosh, it's actually harder to shade on the computer than it is with real paint, and I'm terrible at using real paint! And the liiiiiines! And the layers! And apparently hair is just witchcraft. How the heck do you draw curls???
Oh my gosh. So hard. I am so incredibly impressed with all your guys's skills, and I will never, ever take an artist's work for granted ever again.
My fingers hurt from holding the pen so long D:
Aw crap, I forgot to finish highlighting the ear. Gosh darn it.
