You say you used photoshop CS. Are you using vector lines?

I'm trying to do more vector lines but its taking me awhile to figure it out properly.

I draw every line by hand via Wacom tablet, none of this is vector.

Looks like I'll be digging out my own tablet then.

I've been trying to get vector lines to have those smooth connections and branching lines but its not working for me.

Thanks beb! I love that pose so much, I think it's the SNARL in the face that really pulls it all together. :D
Hair is still my bane, but I do agree in that I think I'm getting a smidge better. c:
