A Drawn Again Elf

Yesterday's picture revamped is much better, I would say. I didn't add a whole lot of detail to Seleine herself, but I cleaned her lines up and added some shading, which works much better with the very heavily shaded tiger in the background. Bast was what I spent most of my time on. I pretty much went over every solid line there was, erasing it and redrawing it as a shaggy fuzz. The shading is more prominent and there are no longer any scribbly half-drawn areas, as before. Check out the difference below. The latter picture was kept at a higher resolution than the former, since it deserves it.

I've also noticed that using html tags to resize images by height="50%" width="50%" does not alter the dimensions of the picture to half its size, but rather alters it to fit to 50% of the TABLE size, which has been set up very nicely. This works out great, since now I can reduce all pictures to fit exactly into the table (unless they're smaller than the table itself, naturally). That was my happy little discovery of the day.
