Great lines, you have pointers you can share? I find doing line-art so frustrating with my tablet, the lines are never smooth and the only thing I seen people do was use the pen tool which personally I think is way too time consuming, I can ink by hand much faster compared to tablet.
Yeah tho I went that route due to carpal tunnel issues, its does take a little longer than just drawing it, however after a year or two you get much much faster lol. I would prob recommend still doing a rough pass on paper then finishing in PS to save tie, I go back and complete a high render pencil ver on board, so I can sell the art tho, no need to lose a few hundread bucks jut cause its digi. I work at 600 dpi, but you can at 300 dpi, just Unsharp mask a few times to get the lines all crispy and remove the aliasing. I use a standard hard brush and the Oil brush that comes default with PS for the thick/thin phase. If theres anything at all you need, lemme know!
And I hear ya. It'd be much to hard to stray away from drawing traditionally completely! I have a pic i've sketched out on paper that i plan on trying to re-draw bits and hopefully digi-ink. Taking a little bit to finding the right brushes that give me the look i want but i suppose thats half the fun in learning a new process
Again, I appreciate the tips! You've given me a couple things to try and look out for.
