::Waterlight's Pokémon Fan-Art::
I've been attempting to use Photoshop to colour my Line Art, and this is my third attempt.
That's all really. All I ask is that you post constructive criticsm and I'll be happy. XD
If anyone mentions the plain old boring pose, the reason is because I quickly drew it so I could practice colouring on it, but my lineart generally turns out shaky alot of the time.
If anyone wants to comment on my deviantART, here's the link to this on there:

It's tasting time!
My only suggestion here is that you don't use the smudge tool that much when trying to blend the different tones. Try to use the brushes with different oppacity so you can blend the colours more softly.

Thanks Kasumi-san. ^__^
I'll try and work on different opacities.

I'm assuming that you drew the picture on paper and then scanned it. I suggest that after you draw the picture in pencil, make a nice, clean black outline (I use Micron 2 or 3 pens), erase the pencil marks, then scan in black and white (no gray). You can use the paintbucket tool in Photoshop to fill in large color areas and use lines and brushes to do detail work.
I don't have such a problem with the smudge tool as with how much you've used it. Used right, it reminds me of a lot of Yoshiyuki Sadamoto's more recent work (example: the leftmost picture on this page).
