Lineart Tutorial by ribkaDory Lineart Tutorial by ribkaDory
Someone asked me to make a quick lineart tutorial, and i thought why not (:

I use PaintTool SAI, for those of you who doesn't know
Here's a gif of the drawing progress [link]

And feel free to ask any question, if there's anything you don't understand about this (:

I cannot do one-stroke lines to save my life when it's time to do lineart, so you don't know how much of a help was this. Thank you so much! :heart:

Best line art tutorial of all the 1000's I've been through. Maybe a slight exaggeration, but still, this is fantastic. Thank you!

wow, the way you do all your pictures is amazing!
I just wish there was a tutorial for doing heads because i'm thinking of doing some human-based art lately. Your faces look so good! Natural, and the hair is all so realistic too! thanks a bunch for making your tutorials ^^

I'm in love with how you drew his eyebrow. Is that weird? Lol.
I always love how clean your lineart is. <3

I've got to ask, what are your canvas settings? When I zoom in to do line art the drawing gets blurry and it sucks lol.

I have a question!
How long would you estimate it takes you to do a fully colored piece, and do you try to do it all in one go, or break it down over days?

:iconribkadory:
ribkaDory Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It all depends on the complexity of a drawing. I think i can finish a full body drawing of one person without background in 12 hours (maybe faster). But usually i can't sit still for 12 hours straight, so i break my drawing process (: but i try not to make long breaks, cause i'm afraid of loosing my interest in a piece i'm working on.

Oh, I llike your tutorials! It is really helpful for me.
But now I have really a question:
You said:
"In places where shadows are darker, I try to make thicker lines."
How you made it in detail? I mean the lines aren't only "thicker", the thickness seams to be only in the middle part of the line. You know what I mean? How you made this? Is it the brush? :?

:iconribkadory:
ribkaDory Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hm, well that's how pressure settings work for every tablet, and i just make more strokes in that part of the line, which i want to be thicker (:

:iconjenny-the-elentari:
Jenny-the-Elentari Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2013  Student General Artist
Okay, thank you.
I didn't know that every tablet have different pressure settings. I will try it. ^^
