      You uploaded it as your profile picture, rather than your avatar.

      Ack, I scrapped most of my progress files.

      Anyway, this was a commission done in 2008 with MS Paint.
      Spoiler for :

      Do you have a tablet or just a mouse + pad?
      If it's a tablet, use the pencil tool on MS Paint.
      If it's just the mouse, mainly use the line and curve tools for the lineart. Pencil and eraser tools are good for cleaning up and refining lines.

      For the colours, take a picture/drawing that has your colours.
      Copy and paste it next to your drawing in MS Paint.
      Use the pick colour/eyedropper tool to extract the colour that you want.
      (I find the MS Paint colour range to be limiting; and I'm much too lazy to go edit the colour palette )
      Block in the colour using the fill with colour/bucket tool. Start with the lightest colours first (not the highlight colour - do that last), then draw in a line for the edge of the shadowed part using the shadowed colour. Fill in the shadow area with the bucket tool.

      Any small edits you wanna do, zoom in with the magnifier tool and use the pencil tool.

      Hope that helps.

      If you save pictures in .PNG you will get a way better quality than what you're getting with .JPEG.
