read about the 'double-posting' thing?

Well, i like your drawing. =D way better than i could do and pretty decent anatomy. As for the coloring part, I usually put a layer over the thing and re-draw the whole thing w color on the comp....but dont take my advice because im horrable at coloring my own drawings on the comp.... ._.

Yes, you simply put a layer on top of the scan-layer and draw over it.
I can't explain it much simpler, sorry.
although i have seen toturials about it, do a google search on it!

Constructive criticism? Well? Um. uh. Color it.:<_<:

And, uh, don't worry about that double-posting rule. It tis a silly rule and should be broken anytime you are able.

Crit: Work on that body.
To colour? First make your pic completly white and black (ink it or something).
If it's on the background(line art), then put a new layer under it. Set your background/line art to multiply. Use the new layer to colour in. DON'T COLOUR IN THE LINEART.

Ink your art first! (draw over so its only black outline and white inside) Plus I'd say maybe re-shape that body alittle .... and then make a fe layers for each thing such as hair, eyes, skin etc. and colour! :D
