How do I.....?

On with the drawing theme from yesterday and here is another one of my pictures from a while ago:

This one was drawn and painted with gouache paints.

Today I did a little cartooning.  I decided to make a colouring in picture for my friend's daughter, Megan.  I had a go at colouring it in too, but I desperately need some Promarkers to do the job properly!:

   
These are just made-up characters.  I would love to know how people go about making and selling characters for greetings cards.  How do you put drawings on to pdfs?  Is that how people sell digital stamps?  Hopefully someone will come along and tell me all I need to know!... 

See you tomorrow,

I have done some for myself. When you've sketched the outline scan it into your pc, at this point I tend to open it with a desktop publishing package to tidy it up a bit and then "save as" and pick the .PDF option (although I have seen some as .JPG too) but if you put them on the web - please make sure you copyright them first. If you check out my blog you'll see a copyright logo and that site is free and easy to use. Jaqui x

Oops sorry for the long comment but I forgot to add - if you don't want anyone else using them make sure you put some kind of watermark on them too. Jaqui x
