1.) Sketch? HECK YEAH. Lineart over it? HECKY DECKY YEAH!
Okay, first of all, you gotta make sure you’ve got your lineart layer OVER YOUR SKETCH LAYER.
Trust me, it’ll save you years of pain and anguish.
Also, I use a custom tool to do my linearts for my comics/pictures.
2.) Slow and steady? F*CK THAT. BE QUICK. MEEP MEEP!
To get clean lines, I use very quick strokes. Slowing down can make the lines jittery and not look very attractive to the eyes.
I also like to put another layer over my lineart layer so, if I mess up, I won’t have trouble erasing key parts.
3.) More quick strokes? WHO WOULDA THUNK??
Remember how, like, two seconds ago I told you I put another layer over my lineart layer so I could erase key parts?
Well, guess what. That’s what’s about to go on.
I draw a quick line overlapping the previous one, so there isn’t any uneven thickness at the end of my line.
4.) ‘Artists don’t erase’. WHO TOLD YOU THAT?!
You know what you do next?
You see that rude lil’ line protruding? The one that acts like it owns the place? IT DOESN’T EVEN PAY RENT.
YOU ERASE THAT MOTHER TRUCKER.
(Then after that, I merge the layer with my original lineart layer.)
Then wash. Rinse. Repeat.
5.) LOOK AT THAT SEXY LINEART. UNF. 10/10 WOULD BANG.
You’re all done. Now that you learned this from me, you’re on your way to fame, fortune, and probably finding a pet dinosaur.
