Well, besides that totally not being okay to trace over someone's stuff, uh.

If you wanna trace over a screenshot you took of your avi/yourself for a cartoon effect that's fine.

Just be careful you aren't tracing a copyrighted work you found on the net someplace.


For future reference, don't outline things with the 'pencil' setting, use a hard round default brush instead in a smaller size.

Also, when putting in the color, don't do it on the same layer as the outline, or you're going to get that terrible halo effect you can clearly see on the hair. Make a new layer and put ALL of the color on it's own layer under the lines you've made. Make a layer for the hair, the jacket, the skins, etc. It makes it much easier to edit later on to have things separate.

The choice of thick outlines and thin inner lines is a good start for stylizing, but maybe try to make the outlines match closer to the base color of what they are around - ie, dark brown for the outline of the brown hair and a dark pink for the shirt. It gives a piece a much softer look and is generally more pleasing to the eye. Especially for a non-shaded piece like this.
