how do you get your lines so smooth and precise? I have the same tablet as you do and I still find it difficult :/ I also use paint sai. Any suggestions please?
Well… a lot of ppl had asked me about my linearts before, but I won’t mind answering it again. It’s not really a secret so, I would like to share it with the others who are curious too.
For linearting, I don’t have a fix choice of tool for it, but recently I’ve started to use this one a lot.
This is actually a default “crayon” tool, with textures removed(and renamed), You can try it out because it is quite smooth and easy to use, because you don’t have to press your pen really hard to draw a smooth line lol.
… and if the above does not help much, here’s another way. Did you use the “stabilizer” function in SAI? If I’m not mistaken, it’s default value is 3, I use about 8-10. The higher the value, the smoother your line will become, but of course it’ll took longer to render the line, so choose according to your needs.
And that’s all! Hope it helps!
Ah... hello! I just figured I'd asked, since you asked for asks... how do you get your linearts to look so clean? Your Whitney is adorable, by the way~ :3
I use paint tool sai from lineart to cging, so… I guess that’s why. The settings are pretty much default, too. The key to draw smooth lines is to draw the line very fast in one stroke, because of this I had abuse the undo button a lot too. The stabilizer in sai is quite useful too. But practice is the main key.=)
Thank you~ I’m glad you like her design too.^^
… Misha? Wait MISHA IS THAT REALLY YOU??!!! ahdgjfhjhfgkjj how did you find this blog… I thought no one would ever find me here. *sob*
Misha-chi promise me you’ll never told Nami and the others about this blog before I do, pleasepleaseplease———</rant>
Oh ya, brushes… I use the ‘pen’ tool to lineart most of the time, size between 2-3 pixels, setting is pretty much default and stabilizer is set to 8.
do you use vectors or do you draw freehand? I seriously don't understand how anyone can draw lines as clean as you do.
I draw freehand, probably it’s because of the program I use, I use Paint tool Sai mainly nowadays.
