Sympathy by sirkles Sympathy by sirkles
"No quality of human nature is more remarkable, both in itself and its consequences, than that propensity we have to sympathize with others, and to receive by communication their intentions and sentiments, however different from, or even contrary to our own."

Holy Gallifreyan Google Grex that's awesome. And what a sentence!
By the way, may I ask how you do the variable thickness lines?

I pretty much do the entire thing using the elliptical select tool. Select a circle, fill it in, shrink selection, erase... When it gets to the smaller circles, i'll just use different sized brushes to paint then erase

Hmm, so you'd fill a full black circle with white, then shrink the white circle and move it about til it's got the effect you want? 
Either that or duplicate the circle (not a filled one) and just shrink it at an angle... Hmm
Well I think I've got it now, thanks~

I never use white ink, just erase the black and do everything on a white background. This helps with layering things.

to get the "skewed" effect I think you are describing in your second sentence, I don't hold down the "expand from center" button on the selection tool when I am shrinking my selection. I don't really manipulate any lines after I have put them down (except for erasing)
