    Yes! Actually most of it is done on the computer. Here is more or less the proses i follow:
    I do a little sketches on my sketchbook, planning the pose and character. When I get something I like I draw it on a clean page whit most of the details, and notes on ligths and shadows.
    Then, since my scanner has been dead for like 6 months, I take a picture whit my digital camara, clean it up, so I can see my sketch clearly or at lest get an idea of where I wanted things to be.
    Then I color it whit either Photoshop or Painter on a new layer, I only use the original sketch as a reference and at the end i keep only the color of the layer.

    Many things depend mostly of what i want to get, some times i color everything in greyscale and then just add colors and highligths on a new layer whit colorise. some other times i keep the sketch because i like sketchy lines, and sometimes i use a lot of pictures of textures to color and so on.

    I learned to paint by the traditional ways (watercolor, acrilycs, oils), but im pretty messy. So i found digital art better for my needs since i dont like cleaning up afterwars. Bases are the same after all, and you can apply them to traditional painting or digital.

    If you want to , i can teach you. =D

    I thought so.
    But the problem is that I don't have Photoshop or painter or anything like that. I only have paint on the laptop...

    spelling:

    Thanks for the spelling check. =D
    I don't write/speak english often, so my spelling and grammar is not good.

    I'll be getting Photoshop and a graphic tablet for my Birthday (6th of August) so your "proposal" is now accepted, though I'll only be able to do it from the 23rd of august and later after my holiday.

    That is SO cool! I really love the concept. Kudos to you on a great pic and a wonderful caption. Makes me think along the lines of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" :banana:
