i want to build up my skill from the base up so i think the lineart tutorial is the next one you should do. The thing is, once people have mastered lineart, then the colour tutorial should be observed then the effects one. If you do the lineart tutorial 1st, you would officially be my favorite internet mentor XD
I picked efffects/textures, etc just because you said you're not sure how you'll approach that one and I think that means you'll get more out of it while you're doing it, y'know? If it's a challenge that automatically makes it waaayyy mo'betta.
I'm having trouble getting my lineart to become as crisp as yours is in the tutorial, when you had it black and white. I know I'm not doing the scanning right, but I got a very VERY old scanner. Can you shed some artistic light on this problem of mine, O' guru of the awesome drawings?
There's a few methods you can use to make crisp line-art.
1. Ink with a really really thin pen. I usually use .005 Micron Pens. and I usually try to fill up the entire page when I draw, so when I scan things in, they come up really crisp.
2. Scan at a really really high resolution. Sometimes I set the scanner at 600 DPI, lol XD I definitely re-size it down in Photoshop after that
For both the scanning methods--after you scan your image try using adjustment tools, like "Levels". (Image > Adjustments) A lot of art programs should have this tool now, I think, so if you don't have Photoshop, you might have something similar to it. Just tweak around with that until you get the lines you want
3. Of course, then, you can scan you drawing in, and then re-ink it on Photoshop or with any other digital art program The same idea applies though-- make your image really big. It's better to do things really big and then scale them down, especially if you have a lot of detail.
