that's what even the celts knew .. no fight with empty stomach, so why should george fight blankets and pillows without his trusted marshmallows? *giggles*

hehe, of course, it's no serious mistake at all, but nonetheless, it's something I just didn't think of .. the background I just drew very roughly on the paper, adding pretty much anything after scanning it, so things like that can happen kind of easily to me.

I know, openCanvas doesn't have a lot of tools, but be honest - what tools would you really need when drawing a picture? you have a pencil and colours, you have an eraser (which would last a lot longer than the one on our pencils, by the way *giggles*), there wasn't really a lot more I would need .. the text adding I do in another application, but that's not until the very very end of a drawing =)

try it .. the last couple of drawings I did were done completely in oC, and to be honest, it was a lot of fun creating them =)
I usually scan my picture, insert another layer (where I put the colours on), the scanned layer I put on the very top and set it to "Multiply", so you can draw on the colour layer without affecting the lines .. that's pretty much all there is to it .. eeeep .. six minutes already *dashes to the kitchen to finish the pudding* =n.n=

Hehe, yes, maybe George is a decendant of a Celtic dragon? *ponders* Could be...=]

I usually make tons of mistakes when I ink my drawings, mostly because I sketch so many lines in one place, I end up all confused. n_n* But hey ho, I just turn it into something else, and hope no one notices...hehe...X3

*opens mouth to say something, but doesn't* Hmm....but I...and then...eee, you're right. I guess I DON'T need hardly any tools at all, apart from a colour palette and rubber (true...true. *giggles* =]) but I'm quite bad at mixing colours and such, usually ending up shading all wrong. n_n* Eh well, I guess I can at least try, right? I shall dedicate my next picture entirely to OC...then pehaps I might find out some unique colouring tips or something whilst scribbling my random clutter of a pic together. n__n
Erk, I really need to put copyrights onto my work too....@_@ I always forget to do that, and even then I never know where to put it without completely obliterating my picture (I really despise putting text onto art...but I suppose its become custom now with the internet and so many people able to just click and take your stuff, huh? <=]) At least with your art its pretty much plain to see, without having much affect to the picture too. *envies Tobias from a tree* X3

Okey dokers, I shall give that a go next time I actually finish a draft...*falls over* Its been mostly unfinished pencil sketched of mine for a while now, I'm getting real lazy again. *yawnyawn* Its all this homework, I tells you...I wish I could just push my mathsbook off the table and it would be all gone like you can! *giggles*

*gasps* you have pudding and you didn't tell me??? *teary eyes*
George: You have pudding and you didn't tell ME?!?! *shock*
*George and Koshi both bolt towards Tobais' pudding* Food! X]

who knows? he could as well be a relative to that loch ness dragon, perhaps nessy was in fact eating roasted marshmallows all day long =)

that's like you do with tables, right? a table here, a table there .. until it looks really good =P really, what other tools would you need? I could only think of the fill bucket, but if you set your brush size to 50 you have pretty much the same effect (and you can always erase the colour later) =) and nope, your colouring is very vivid and nice looking to me, no worries .. the copyright .. well, I just put it next to the title, below the picture, that's pretty much it .. of course I wouldn't do it for doodles, but on pictures with background and such I think it doesn't look bad having a title and the copyright there XD

eeek .. I have to do my maths homework too, despite of what I've written in the journal .. I'm not spared of these horrors either -.-;;

hehe, but I did tell you I was making pudding right now, ne? still needs to cool off though, at the moment it's still kind of hot =)

Gyee! I love Nessie. n_n Its a pity I never remember going to Loch Ness...aparantly our house was only 30 miles away from it! n_n* Hehe...I believe in Nessie. I wonder if little Tobias would be able to find her in that big ol' lake? =3

Lol! Yes, indeed...table here, table there...heck, lets make it all out of tables! *clicky keyboard sounds as she types code* Bwahaha! =B Hehe, aww, but rubbing out the colour afterwards is such a chore...*sighs* Ah well, guess I can spare a few minutes doing so...*rolls eyes* X3
*tries to think of a way of having her copyright clear and without using Tobias' method* Hmm....mmm...I shall have to think of that one for a while. n_n

*gazes at her schoolbooks on the floor* Oh, NOW you tell me it doesn't work...X3

You actually make pudding too?! *swoons* Alright, me and George are living with you from now on. XD *sets up a little camp outside Tobias' house* Now all you need to do is put the pudding on the doorstep, and nobody will get hurt...=9 *giggles* I'm not saying I'll hurt you, but George...well, hes a ravenous little beastie. Food + George = Look for cover! <=]

*giggles* eeeh, yes, he'd probably find her, if she's there, darting out of the water and stuttering something along the lines that he found a h-huge mo-monster-fish ^.^ of course, if he's diving deep enough and sees an anglerfish, he'd probably do the same (I know, they're saltwater fish) ^.^

hehe, if you like you can use my way of doing it just as well, I wouldn't mind at all, you know .. you could also try my previous method .. namely putting the copyright in the corner and making it almost completely transparent .. whatever you like more =3

*gazes at her schoolbooks as well* well, dunno, who knows? maybe it does work, but I doubt it, somehow ^.^;

I make puddings for my sisters and me, in the evening, sometimes it's my turn, sometimes it's theirs, does it matter? yay for pudding ^.^

ooh .. *prods* how is your icon going, by the way? all finished? or not started yet? X3
