Did you get around to making another one of these? I was browsing your work and couldn't find it if so...

Hi there!

You are the first to show interest... I didn't make the 2 colouring tuts for that reason, lack of interest.

AWSOME TUTORIAL I USED INKSCAPE FOR THAT METHOD AND IT DOES PRETTY WELL
BUT I WANT TO ASK WHEN I MAKE A BASIC SKETCH AND IF THE SHAPES ARE THERE WILL THE TRACE INK THE SHAPES ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE DRAWING I WAS TOO NERVOUS TO DRAW MY BASIC SHAPES FOR MY CHARS DRAWINGS WITHOUT THAT ON MY HEAD

What shapes are you asking me about? Can you share the sketch so I can see what you are asking?

Either way, the trace bitmap makes a copy of your sketch.. it does not destroy it, so there is little to be nervous about.
