Nature's Wonder & Art of Grace - 11 days ago
nice work
Charles Toefield - 11 days ago
Thanks Nature, I really appreciate that. Normally I'm very precious with my line work and it makes the process take longer then it needs to. I'm trying to get over it and bring the line work to a level of quality where it's still very nice but at the same time won't take a million years to finish.

What app do you use, I have a few techniques I use depending upon the app and effect you want-
Charles Toefield - 10 days ago
I'm actually drawing traditionally with micron or pitt pens on card stock. The issue is that my working space is sometimes a half of a page so I think the line work looks choppy because I spend all day looking at it at 300 to 200 percent when I'm coloring. :)

You are probably going crazy with the small work space, I use a larger screen. and even magnify intricate areas so I can control the paint and blend and shade, your app I haven't used but you use it well- it's all what you get used to. I select areas with the wand tool to paint and shade so I won't get in other areas, it saves time on fixing mistakes before they happen:-)
