actually-how-to-lineart

Hey guys~!! I am officially back after taking a bunch of rest and more rest! So now I am full of energy to draw and reblog some more!

Today on my agenda, I want to show you my idea of Star-Crossed Myth’s Goddess form of MC-chan! I couldn’t think of anything fancy like her male counterparts, so I just drew her in what I thought would best suit her. Something simple but with a taste of elegance.

Um, I don’t have any solid evidence in what she actually wears or how she acted like in her past life, but I hope I portrayed her well enough to justify that!

Wwww~ I wanted her to be in a flow-ey pinkish dress with various kinds of flower patterns going around her dress. I also thought of adding a flower wreath on her head but thought it was too much. So I just added a few flowers on her hair and some flying/breaking away to show some subtle wind passing by. Haha, I wasn’t sure if I should add any jewelry since all the men in SCM had at least one or two on them. But I kept it simple and added some rings on her finger. (There is no intention of her being married or anything of the sort lol haha well, maybe Huedhaut lol)

So, yeah. I hope you guys like it and I hope this inspires you to draw MC-chan in her Goddess form. Also, I want to see more of what you guys come up with too! So if there are more of you guys out there, show me~!! I’d love to see what your creative minds can do!! I only drew this because I saw some of the people drawing out what she looks like in her past life— and I thought it was super duper cool!! So for you guys who did is before me, this one is for you! You guys inspired me so much that I had to make one too!

Well, enough rambling! Enjoy~!!

I don't know if you've shared this before, but how do you do your line art? What program and brush/tool do you use? What's your approach to line-arting? Give me your secrets!

I actually saw >this< tutorial on my dash the other day and its describes really well actually how I also do lineart. Lots of fast strokes, and alt-z’ing until I get the strong confident line I want. Rinse and Repeat. 

Up until recently I was using Paint Tool SAI, but I switched to Manga Studio 5 and love it sooo much better. Brush options are perfect for the kind of lineart I do. 

One thing I do differently though is that I keep my base sketches VERY basic. I do most-to-all of the detail work in lineart, while my sketch never leaves the blob phaze. Which may or may not be an unprofessional way to go about it (I still flesh sketches out for commissions but for my own personal stuff, I free hand A LOT of my lineart…)

like uh this

idk how I’d go about making a lineart tutorial better than the one I linked so id deff suggest checking it out bcause thats how ive always gone about it.

One thing that makes it easy to do this method - since some people cough cough say its hard - is that my canvases are fucking enormous. I never work on canvases smaller than 2000x2000pixels

Also I ink in mouse-mode because pen-to-screen mapping on tablets drives me insane

ALSO X2 here are my brush settings in SAI when i use it
