Here's my tutorial for lineart. :)
It covers: Perspective Drawing, Scanning, Layouts, Sketching, Composition, Digital Lineart/Inking, Introduction to Vectors, PaintToolSAI and more!

There is music! If you would like to hear MUSIC, just hit the "S" button. Hit "X" to turn it off.
-- EDIT: okay, i was just kidding the first time, the music actually works now. @_@

Hit LEFT and RIGHT on the tutorial to go through the pages.
Hit UP to come back to the table of contents.

If for some reason the keys do not work, click on the flash and then try. :)

Extremely useful!

I have never found a lineart tutorial that describes their method in that much detail! It was very helpful to have tips for Photoshop and SAI users, and pros and cons for different things like bitmaps and vectors. I've never tried working in vectors myself, mostly because I never learned how to use Illustrator, but the info you gave on SAI makes it seem like a good choice for lineart!

Wavechan responds:

Vectors really take that extra step to get... I've been working with them for a long time and they still give me a headache every now and then XD Mostly because it's so much harder to step into them vs Bitmap.. it's truly a computer-only art! I mean, with bitmaps... I can understand a brush/pencil/pen tool means that I'll be able to draw a line...

Thank you for reading :D!

Finally a lineart tutorial that's easy to understand for me!! i love the casual attitude you used in this, kinda gives it a subsitute-teacher-trying-to-be-cool-w ith-the-kids feel ^^. If only i had a scanner T-T and well any talent in anatomic drawing and less of a perfectionist attitude i'd be able to get even better with my art. Anyway *cough* i love this tut and will definately remember the advice given ^^ kudos!.

Thank you very much!

I'm really bad at my pen tablet, the sensitivity always seems too high or too low. Hopefully Sai will help me with that! Anyway, this tutorial is so awesome, just like your other one. I don't suppose you could make a tutorial for using pen tablets? 8D
