Just curious, what program do you use, mainly for the ink stage?
The lines just look so nice!

Beautiful.
The jump from 7 to 8 reminds me of the How to Draw an Owl picture

1) Draw a circle
2) DRAW THE REST OF THE F***ING OWL

Aw, okay xD
See, I'm hoping to shift from a writer to some sort of odd artist/writer hybrid, but all I have are two carpy mice :/ Well, I'll just have to submit and get a tablet ^^ Again, great picture. Very cute, as well as your design~

A mouse is easy to use. Just become friends with your keyboard and your pen tool :)

This mouse is on its last limb ;_; sensitive laser mixed with the fact its glitchy and the scroll wheel is always down makes it... nearly unusable.
But I shall persist! :la:

Wow...That is dull, boring shading...Are you WANTING to make it look like a cheap, shitty low budget anime...Get better at art before you start to teach it. Also, self insert OCs are bad and you are bad for having one and flaunting it so much.

Ive tried twice today to record my desktop. Both times the program corrupted the video. I gave up for now. Gonna buy a better program later.

That... looks pretty awesome, but unfortunately it is of no help to me. :( Still trying to grasp the basics, I wouldn't make it from step 1 to step 2 without several hours and lots of references. Oh, and also the pen tool to smooth out my lines because I don't have a steady hand.

Haha. My apoligies, I was a little tired and words weren't forming just right.

I used the steps that you outlined in the pic above to recreate my own version of the picture while a work. That's mostly what I meant to say.
