And second, I suck at photoshop. I mostly work with color pencils and for a long time I did a lot of copies of pictures (i.e. this pic is not original I just copied in pencil and color pencil.) and I've gotten really good at mixing my colors almost exactly like the originals.
Worry no more! I will have your Yoshi up by the end of today!
sorry it took so long but I've had lots to do and little time until recently that I got out of school so expect artwork more often from now on. And I did promise you that Yoshi so I had to get it done for you.
