Braaaaad! it looks a lot better now!
Yeea in Illustrator there is the Pen Tool and you can mess with the stroke line and make it look like natural pen ink or just typical straight lines. It's really good to do pretty much what you did. Like...let's say you have a very rough sketch, you scan it in, ink it out with the pen tool then you can color it in, then you can take out the lines and pretty much have what you have with yer card right now.

I used to be big on photoshop, but since I started using Illustrator for digital ink and paint, i've fallen in love with that program a lot more. Tho, don't get me wrong, I still use Photoshop for coloring...especially to mimic water color type painting on PS!

Super card! I can't believe you don't use a tablet! I couldn't exist without one - I use it for everything as mice (mouses?) make my hands hurt. I love using illustrator - I used to hate it but I took a job a few years ago that required all the artwork to be created in illustrator so I had to learn to love it. Now I use it almost more than photoshop - nice crisp images. I find myself making layouts in illustrator and highlighting them in painter or photoshop if need be. I can't believe you made that amazing image not even knowing how to create lines! So talented! Now if we can get you to sculpt up a few cuthulu tiki mugs...

The character would look better with outlines, no doubt...here's an outline tutorial for you...I don't know which Illustrator-version you're using but it should be easy to understand nevertheless:

A friend of mine once defined "film animation" as "boy, that sure is a lot of work."

Ditto, for tracing lines in Illustrator, methinks.

OMG!
HA! soorrry puppy and tiki central folks!! The holidaze and guests and then getting caught up at work knocked me outa my tiki art for a while. I'm back working on a sketch and will post something this week end!
The cards are in route somewhere over the wild blue pacific - cause I still use my printer back in Hollywood. He's my guy for all cards and business thangs. I think he even has a full sized print of The Moon of Mankoora hanging in his business.
Laters!
