Hmm... I've always had issues with making line art, especially since most of the tutorials I've found have been quite useless. This has been so far the most helpful, thanks :]

lol if you jsut think of it as glorified tracing, then it sort of simplifies things

THE BEST IN SHOW.
all of the others i saw, it's all shortcuts and settings! no one traces line forms anymore it's all outline > select > fill! that's why so much of it looks the same :ohnoes: i mean damn after all the bullshit i got for using PSP it's become kind of apparent that i'm doing ten times more work. x_x

i liked your stuff early on though, when i first joined. i like vectors that don't use the line tool to lay everything out, they're less rigid. your tut covers pretty much how i do lines so i'll hold off on submitting for this week... wake me up when it's time to color... :P

thanks, i was told that i work in a time consuming roundabout way... i think there are only a handful of us that draw out our sketches instead of just tracing... so thanks ^____^

yeah the tracing is getting out of hand... i mean 'reference' means it's still recognizeable as your art if it's a take on something else. or what the hell is the point.

and by 'tracing forms' i mean drawing two-way lineart instead of just using the outline function in one direction over the whole thing.

Vashtastic Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2008   Digital Artist
well freehand is actually a vector program.... while photoshop is just raster... hence you can only make vexels
