good brother... what I recommend you is that if you're doing that ninja style forearm guard, you should do the same thing on the right hand.
Every time I look in her face... ah she's so nice man! Really beautiful :)

By the way... I just want to say someething about Photoshop CS4. My friend got it recently and he does not use it for drawing. When I tried to use the brush it was very slow!! You draw and the line follows behind the cursor. It's really annoying! One of the coolest things I found in it though was the rotation tool (R) just like Painter.(just to balance positive and negative!)

well done again Xia!

Xia > I think the pose is better but I like it better without the lines.

luca > The lag with the brush may because you worked at high resolution or he's got a slow computer. CS4 is supposed to be faster than CS3 at least. GPU accelerating or something.

I really want CS4 :p

the pc performance is more than good...

core2duo, 2GB Ram, 32-bit system, 20GB free harddisk, GeForce 8600M GT...I don't think its because of that, and I worked on a regular 600x800 px canvas with a 72 resolution.

Also I need some of your help... I got Gimp and the problem is that the brush is not answering the pen's command. with the mouse its ok but with the tablet's pen it only moves the cursor. Do I have to set anything??!

Thanks people!
