Just managed to copy/paste this together out of the whole day.

Hrm! Basically- that's how I outline in a nutshell. I've been asked so many times and THIS is how I get such awesome lines! I can't think of anything else to add- everything is there xD

Hope it isn't confusing- or if I over-explained something

-I use only Paint Tool Sai, I make no modifications on a different art program.

-My Bamboo Tablet is medium sized, your basic tablet.

-I use Windows XP.

that's it XD;

When I saw the part about flipping half a circle to make a perfect circle, I thought about when Spongebob drew a head, erased most of it, and got a perfect circle.

But aside from that, you have the cleanest lineart I've seen yet! And the stuff about the rotate tool was a real eye opener. I never thought about that! If I hadn't had lost my tablet pen, I'd do this really well.

Help! Whenever I draw, my pen strokes don't thin out at the end. I don't know how to fix this?

It's easier with a tablet because of the pen pressure features. The movement is more natural.

nice tutorials. very good. 
I learned a lot from them. I still need some time to digest and take practice myself. Anyway, thanks a lot.:happybounce: 
I am a newbie to Paint tool sai. I used to paint with a good Mac paint tool named MyBrushes on Mac.

You're like me I have to always turn my paper in real life, Most of my friends have it straight and they look at me weird when my papers almost sideways.
