Hey guys.

This is my entry for the current illustration activity. I've put it here so I wont crowd up that thread with my pleas for advice

Basically, this thing hasnt changed in a week, because every time I try to improve it I muck around for an hour or so, get annoyed and hit "revert". Every time I try and tighten up the details (trying to eventually not need the lines) it looks like ass. Lucky i've got another week to go...

Most of the problem is that this is the first time I've tried to do anything much with painter and pen tablet. What do people usually do when the painting reaches this stage? What brushes, settings, strategies? Feel free to comment on anything you dont like about the pic, too
