    [ PS ] ☆.。ʕ •ᴥ• ʔ Lorn's Illustration Tuts。.☆

    As promised, a tutorial for my Momo drawing! I'm sorry if it's wordy, but I tried my best to explain how I ended up at my result. Hope it helps somewhat Eventually I might add another tutorial or two for more painting-like styles - this one's a bit cartoonish, I guess. Tagging @Trinket and @katzes for being the ones who encouraged me to make this. Thanks again <3 If there's anything you'd like clarified, don't hesitate to ask. :3

    Also, uhh...I'm sorry it's so big. Let me know if I should put it in a spoiler, LOL.

    Omg thank you so much for this @Lorn. <3
    I also have a quick question. When you are cleaning your lineart, let's take as an example, Momo's tail, how do you make the curves look perfect? Is it hand drawed, or do you use some sort of tools in Photoshop to make it looks like a line without imperfections?

    I'm sorry broccoli-san, I had no idea what colors to use so I went with salad-y greens. I'll keep that in mind next time, thanks~

    No problem <3 I mention it in the tutorial but I guess the font's too tiny after all haha - generally I use my tablet to draw and outline everything, but with large, sweeping curves such as his tail that would be too annoying to meticulously crane my wrist over my tablet for I'll use the pen tool. I believe there was a tutorial somewhere in this forum about how to use it actually, I'll go pull it up, sec...

    Okay, here's one. I think there was another good one too, but this is the first one I found: link

    The line it creates will depend on what tool you set it to outline your line with. Setting it to Brush while your Brush tool is set to 1 px will produce a 1 px line, etc. ^u^

    You have no idea how this is going to change my drawing life.
    I'm so dumb, I didn't know at all, so I was always working really hard with my tablet to make my lines as perfect as possible and it was taking forever + never looked how I wanted it to look like.

    Thanks a lot. <3 +rep

    Noo you're not dumb, I've had the same copy of Photoshop for years and I discover some crazy new function every week, plus 90% of the time I still don't know what I'm doing. LOL. I slaved over lines just like you did for the longest time. ;w;

    Glad I could help!

    omg momo <3
    @Lorn Thank you so much for making this, it looks fantastic

    With your outlines, do you simply stroke with say, a 3/4px pen pressure brush? I don't have a steady hand, and so almost everything I do is done with the pen tool ;x any tips there?

    No problem at all ^u^

    Ahh I actually forgot to mention that. What I like to do is to start out with a massive canvas, usually at least 1000px by 1000px, if not bigger. I zoom in very close to add finer details so my brush size varies depending on what I'm doing and how big my canvas is. My brush size also constantly changes even while drawing the same picture, I fidget around a lot with my lines. If you don't have pen pressure enabled while using your pen tool, you'll want to use a brush set to a smaller size because the pen tool's very exact about how it strokes the line. The pen tool does have a simulate pressure setting that tapers your lines, but I don't use it often so I'm not an expert there.

    Also, if you start with a really big canvas, it sometimes doesn't even matter how straight or crisp your lines are because once you crop the image to a smaller size for display Photoshop's built in resizer does a fantastic job of creating that illusion of smooth linework. Hahaha /lazy
