I'm fairly new to using digital programs for drawing, but I've started using my tablet to trace over scanned pencil art I've done, using Paint Tool Sai, I've learned how vectors layers work and I'm pretty happy.

Only problem is, once my picture is done, once I shrink it down to a smaller size for the web, it suffers a quality loss, some of the vector lines look funky, sometimes even the colours seem to shift hue slightly.

I was under the impression you're supposed to draw on a big canvas so when it gets shrunk down it'll be fine? I guess I misunderstood, just for the record I've been drawing on about a 3000x3000 thing at 300 DPI.

Please be gentle. :P

So my drawing has improved a 'bit', I might up some sketches if I can make them look nice. Started Inking in Paint Tool SAI, finding it SO much easier than Photoshop. :)
