Line and Color Walkthrough by Toucat Line and Color Walkthrough by Toucat
WARNING: HUGE FILE

I've been asked a few times on how I get my lines to be so "smooth" or "neat." And I honestly don't know. I don't do anything different from other people who just use PS's standard settings. So...hopefully you guys can find the secret to how I make my lines. Good luck!

cool tutorial c:
I'm still curious as to how you got such smooth lines though cx
I have cs5 too, but my lines are always shaky ;n;

How much are you drawing in one movement? I find that short, swoop motions get clean lines. I also probably make the same line 5-10 times before it's the way I want it. (:

Thinks Im missing something as it makes me color outside my selection instead of inside

You probably just need to inverse it.

I hadn't ever heard of the contract feature. I've always colored my linearts in my hand, but this will make my life much easier. :) Thank you!

My own method is very similar to this, but it's always helpful to see other methods to help speed a step up. ;3 (I actually use Gimp, but the steps and tools are very similar.)
