Photoshop Lineart Tutorial by wyldflowa Photoshop Lineart Tutorial by wyldflowa
~ FULL VIEW TO SEE IT ~

~ FOR TABLET USERS ONLY ~

Good gravy, I think I'm gonna faint... so I'll keep this short (for once).

I haven't explained *everything* because I'm sure you all know which tools are what and how to lock/create new layers and such... and things like brushes which I don't really bother with (all I used was the 5px hard brush in the default brush set to do the lot). There's no real trick to it apart from the high resolution (I learnt the hard way). :/ This is just how I did the lineart on this picture (it's not even finished yet x_x) and um... yeah. Maybe a colouring one too if I feel a bit more alive tomorrow.

Any questions please feel free to ask! I'll try to explain the best I can. :) Hope this is useful to y'all.

I usually do my line art in illustrator because I have never been able to quite get good clean lines in photoshop. I think I see my flaw, it's just a matter of having patience and going over the line until you get it how you like. I just got myself a tablet and I think it will be much quicker so I'm going to try this method that you have shown me here, hopefully it turns out well.

Nice tutorial, I also use the 'stroking' method, since my hand isn't that steady and all.

This is the best one I've seen on deviantART so far! :) So I have PhotoShop Elements 7, looks like you have PSE of some kind, would it work on mine?

So 5px brush tool? is it just normal black or did you edit the blacks tone?

Hi! May I ask if you're using a pressure sensitive tablet? I'm not, and I was wondering if the result would be the same.

Wow this is really helpful! So you just create new layers for each part that you outline on your drawing?

I'm so tired of seeing ''take scanned image and put to grayscale'' tutorials. Thanks a lot for this! If you don't mind me asking though, I saw that some of your layers were locked and some weren't, does this make a difference and if so, how? Please help me out I'm kinda a noob ^^''
