Sketchpad for pencil and digital painting!
It's very awesome to see you're still drawing! I went through your blog and I like what I'm seeing, too. Try going over some of the important lines in your drawings and refining them some more so they get more clear and defined. I found the key to overcoming scratchy lines is just going over them again once or twice to solidify them. I think a little line weighting would help you too, in little areas here and there to make the animals and figures stand out more and show weight and emphasis. Keep it up, can't wait to see more! :)
