Is it a digital art with a drawing sketch? Could You tell me, how you do them?

I just try to understand how can I better digitalise my drawings, what soft I probably need.

I draw everything by hand with pencils and ink, then scan the image and color it in Photoshop :)

And, if you will to tell, how do you colour it?
Cause I think my method isn't very useful. :\

I use a really simple method, I just use the lasso tool to select certain areas and then fill them in! It takes a while, but it works best for me :)

LOVE IT! But have you heard of the book series "Scary storys to tell in the dark"? In it theres the story about a girl who from little to small always wore the same red ribbon and then on her death bed she told her husband to take it off and her head came rolling off the bed. Just thought you should know

Yes! This is a play on that old story, called "Jenny's Green Ribbon" from the book "In a Dark, Dark, Room." I think that it's originally just an old folk tale, but people have been retelling it for years. This version will have a slightly different ending ^_~

I am favoriting all the "Amarantha and Archibald" sketches. :giggle: I love the storyline and the pictures so much! I would definitely read the book if it was published. Definitely original and I love stories about girls like Amarantha. (I also appreciate the names. Not your average characters in any way.) :love:

Yes, the story follows her growing up - I'm going horribly out of order, but once I get them all sketched out it'll make more sense XP
