Let's Learn to Lineart! [Part 2] by TheCarrotSaysYumYum Let's Learn to Lineart! [Part 2] by TheCarrotSaysYumYum
Here is part two of my lineart tutorial! Again, I seriously hope it helps, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to drop them in the comments :boogie: Oh, and it would seem that my use of Photoshop to finish up my lines has made me ignorant of an easier way to turn your lineart black. I would like to thank :iconfiniens: finiens for commenting and providing a better and easier way to do this. She says:

"An easy way to change colour of linearts in SAI: create a normal/usual layer underneath the layer with the finished lineart and merge the lineart down. Now it is on the normal layer where you can preserve the opacity and paint over it with any colour(s) you like. Saves a lot of time."

So, I hope that works better for some of you than the method I mentioned above. Again, thanks finiens for your help ;)

Lucy, the character in the lineart, belongs to Hiro Mashima.

Enjoy... particularly because I actually made this twice >__> PhotoShop crashed the first time and I had to start from scratch D;

This tutorial is awesome! :) I do something in mine a bit differently, though- I just cut down the opacity of the base image and go ahead and line it in black, because I don't have photoshop, and the color tool just sounds.... ehhh.
So- here is my most recent line!

Ah yep, that's another way to do it. I just line over the top in colour because I usually alter my lines from the base quite a bit and don't like seeing the mismatched base image below ^__^"

And that looks great :D The only thing I would recommend is increasing the base image size so that your line is bigger :)

Thank you so much for  the Great Tutorial! It really helped me improve in making linearts. I have made several already using the methods you showed us, and I've got to say I saw myself progress in making these linearts. Thank you so much for the tutorial! 

My program of sai had problems like others too, where I was not able to save it with a transparent background. But after reading some of your responses to others, I learned

Here is my first lineart with a good transparent background after several tries. I have other linearts that follow your instructions, but in my opinion this is probably my best one lol. 

Here Thank you for all your help!

The line is great :D You've made great use of the pressure tool and all of the weights are nice and even~ The only thing I would recommend is perhaps using the edit tool a little more to fully neaten out some of the curves and connecting lines, but this is something that just becomes easier with practice, which, from what you described, seems to be helping you improve too ^__^

Keep up the great work, and I'm really glad you found this useful :love:

It's great :D The only thing I could recommend is using the pressure tool a little more, but really, for a first attempt you're doing just fine ;D Practice is all it comes down to, so keep up the great work :meow:

I just wanted to share with you. I didn't even know the pressurize thing existed till now. It's not really off of anything, just exploring.
