Tips for smooth clean line art
Is your line art shaky, wobbly, sloppy, fat, uneven or pixelated? The subject of clean line art comes up a lot so I've gathered together a number of tips from various DA members that may help you improve your line art. Some of the techniques described below may contradict other techniques described below so you may want to experiment and decide what works best for you. Most of these assume that you have a digital tablet. (Make sure your tablet drivers have been installed correctly. If your cursor is behaving erratically it may indicate a problem with your tablet or drivers.) Some posts have been edited for brevity or spelling:
"I developed my own technique. And it works quite well for me. It raised my Lineart cleanliness from 24% to 98%, yeah, really. Here is how I do it digitally when I'm not using a traditional sketch:
:bulletblue: First a rough sketch, and I isolate it in its own layer then set its opacity to 50 or something near that value.
:bulletblue: Then on the second layer

Pierce Character Display Concept
This is a little old. I guess I forgot to post it, cause I can't see it in my gallery anywhere. The character is an edit.
Tumble The Skunk
Felt like trying another one of them comic book characters.
Headshot Sketches
Was gonna do more with these, but I never continued working with them, so here's 3 head sketches.
Mar10 Sprite
Yeh. I did something for MAR10 Day. yeeeeeeh.

Ink Test Self Portrait
Testing out some inking with some pen settings I found from :iconmaster-rainbow: SO credit to them for that.

Gonna try doing stuff with these settings for a while, It felt really natural to draw lines with this one.
But probably for like, an hour or something.

Just an amateur pixel artist. I used to focus solely on sanics, but I'm expanding my work slowly. But if you're more interested in solely Sonic, no worries, I still work on those as well. Been spriting for quite a while, so I think I know my stuff at this point. I've got me a Youtube Channel where I don't post much right now. Maybe someday: TechM8

I also have xbox live: CommandMg45.
