    I used Inkscape! (A free opensource vector program, similar to adobe illustrator - you can check it out here ) It definitely takes a bit of getting the hang of, but I've been using it for years and have figured out all the shortcuts heh. I also recorded the drawing process (I still need to edit it though haha)~ if you'd be interested in watching it sometime! Are you an aspiring artist?...

    Thanks!! Agree 100% re the edges. I've actually tried that and failed to make it look nice. I'm very new to this and I only have Inkscape & BoxySVG, since I use a Chromebook which doesn't work with Illustrator. I'll keep trying, though, as I fully agree with the concept.
