For Mina as thanks for being awesome!! All she asked for was a Sasuke chibi, so the rest of the emasculation happening here is not her fault. XD; Sasuke's duck butt hair TOTALLY cracks me up. But then, I'm very easily entertained.

Done entirely in Painter with an Intuos2 tablet, took roughly 3 hours. I tried a new coloring style with this one, more cell-shaded-like, because I thought it fit with the chibi look more. I'm not 100% happy with it...I love the background, but there's something about the foreground that's bugging me. Gah!! I think it's my lineart. I've always hated my digital lineart. Any suggestions on that? ;__; I can NOT get my lines clean!

To make smooth digital lines, work on a canvas at least three times bigger than you intend your finished version to be. Then you can use bigger brushes than normal. Also, outline slowly and try to do the line in ONE stroke instead of several. Utilize the eraser to taper lines in areas to give them a more dynamic feel. See, after you are done everything, you can shrink the image down and the lines will look smoother. Also, working at a big size lets you use more of a variety of brush sizes and you can get in more detail. ^__^ Hope I helped.

Thanks~ I'll have to force myself to do stuff in larger sizes--I'm kinda lazy so I always tend to do sizes that fit in my monitor if I'm sketching on the computer, but it's definitely better to do it at larger sizes!

Yep. And remember... if you work on a large size, you can zoom out to these sizes: 50%, 25% and 12.5% and it shouldn't distort your picture or make it look too weird. That makes it easy to get the sketch in. Or even, sketch at a small size, then blow it up to 300% to do the outlining. ^__^ It took me a while to get used to working on huge canvasses too. XD
