Great job.
What program did you use to digitise them?

No, I'll offer them for free on my tutorials blog soon.
I'd rather not sell them because the files aren't really professional level.
DraWings doesn't let me tweak the digitizing by hand. I'm only using it because I'm familiar with Corel Draw.

I love these! The little snail especially. Smiley I also love the colors that you used, not as eye-wateringly bright as most childrens stuff... Really pretty!

And another technical question: Sorry if this seems daft, but how did you "clean up" your sketches in Photoshop? I've got some sketches that I would love to play around with, but I have no idea how to go from sketches to those nice, clean lines... I'm a total Photoshop newb!  Roll Eyes If you could point me in the direction of a tute or anything that would be amazing!

You put your sketch on a layer as reference and you use the pen tool to trace it on another layer.
There's a detailed tutorial on the pen tool here:

Search for Photoshop Pen Tool tutorials and you'll find many more.

You can also do it with other illustration software like Illustrator, CorelDraw or Manga Studio.
