    the pen tool works nice and clean BUT in my experience is makes things look kinda flat and lifeless but im sure if you spent enough time using it, it could look nice.

    Today I learnt the difference between vector and bitmap images in design class. Which gets me thinking: should I do lineart in vector, or coloring in vector. Do you guys know any vector based programs?

    Illustrator is a huge vector based program, but I wouldn't recommend it for the art you're working on. I mean, vector is cool and all, and I know that Cpt. Sparky does it, but I think that you might prefer sticking with whatever you're using now. Don't let me change what you want to do. Try it for yourself and see how it works for you. You never know if it will help.

    This is Sparky's thread. C: He uses Illustrator, which, like the others said, is a vector-based drawing/design program. Vector lines can be blown up to any size that you want with 0% quality loss. That's right. Many artists do choose to use Flash for their lineart because it gives that crisp, high-quality line (one that's so sharp that it's almost jagged-looking in small dimensions, like you see in Sparky's thread). However, vector coloring is a pain in the butt, so most artists take their vector lineart, export it into a raster (which is synonymous with bitmap, essentially) format, then color it in a raster program, such as Photoshop, Painter, Mangastudio, etc. Vector coloring is just extremely stiff and not very organic unless you are an absolute pro. Even then, it's just a better use of tools to do raster coloring, anyway. I mean, even vector lines aren't essential, unless you're trying to make prints the size of huge poster/bilboards. I've made prints that are three feet long and the coloring was still crisp. Granted, I don't use lineart, so it's easier to get away with. It's your choice, though. (:

    But anyway! With your last picture I agree with Ged that I'm not the most savvy on SD anatomy, but I really like your interpretation of it a lot. It kinda makes me want to try it. I like her expression and the colors that you're using so far.

    I really like the one on the right because there is more color depth to it. The other ones seem a little flat. Still good, though.
