Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. Sorry to say I am also from dA! We seem to be all fleeing here. Thank goodness there is a new home for us. My tutorials are all on http://digitalimagemagazine.com/blog. There are about 70 PS tuts on there so far. See you around!
nothing wrong with using line art, that's how alot of my artwork starts off--in my sketchbook. currently i'm trying to get more familiar with illustrator and photoshop by trying out vexel/vector techniques. i LOVE your gallery. you also gotta be the 1st person on here i've met that isn't from deviantArt which has gone downhill in the past 2 years. i hope if i have questions on certain techniques you might be able to answer or better yet link me to your tuts fly guy.
