My sister downloaded inkscape. I've worked with it before, but now with my increased drawing skills and better graphics knowledge I've been able to do some cool stuff. I've tried before to digitize my drawings in gimp, but it hasn't worked to well, so now I've tackled it with inkscape. Here's a drawing I've posted on here before:

Now here it is after I went over it in inkscape:

Awesome.

Very cute. But why is he wearing a skirt? Don't his legs get cold/injured in battle? Or is he a Scot and therefore has very hairy, strong, masculine legs?

I'm back, and I have improved the zombie!

Now with shading! The only step left is to add a background and some blood spatters or something to make it darker. Also I'm finnaly putting stuff on my deviantart account: http://revenge10111.deviantart.com/ so far it's nothing I haven't put on the boards but I'll probably do some more at some point. Give me views and comments and faves and stuff please (many of those can only be done if you have your own account) I really need them.

I think your new pic of the bacon bra should be your costume. Also, you should put up pics if/when you wear it. :lech:

It's back! With random bloody backgrounds!

Foregrounds too, I discovered by looking at deviant art pics that putting a splotchy layer of some color over the image really helps the atmosphere.
