Thank you! I should write the description of the story. He's glowing because he started a bad habit of snaking on fireflies and couldn't quite. He began to glow because he ate so many over the summers.
Thanks so much! I didn't know I made my lines so smooth, haha. Guess I just have a lot of patience/OCD. If I see a little bump in a line I'll think "no one will see that...but I'll know it's there!" and have to fix it. About the leaves, this is why I am so conflicted about entirely going digital. While doing things like the leaves is so much easier digitally as I fill one corner of the page with leaves then just copy and paste them everywhere else, a piece done on the computer will never have the exact look/feel that I like about traditional work so much. It's so weird where you start and finish a year of school. At the beginning I was really, really, really against going digital with my work, but then I realized how much more stress free digital is in the respect of being able to change the color/value system in 3 seconds, copy/paste, and the most important: the undo button! Want to work on getting better/faster with traditional over the summer so I can get back to it next year. But this is also why I like your work so much, because you use the digital medium in a way that is so perfect. Your work always has a deep, subtle glow to it and you use light outlines against darker fills in the coolest way. Coraline came out great! Have you ever read Sandman? You should if you haven't. I think it's Gaiman's best work.
