I love the lineart already. And no worries, my lines look pretty messy when you see them up close! Plus, it's kinda like when you look into a mirror and start to see excess fat and pimples where no one else sees it. d:
The acrylics I'm using are for airbrush, because of that they are very smooth. White ink works the same way, but has a nasty smell and will start to make globs of color only a short while after you got it.
Though I had to try about 5 - 7 different whites to find the one that was good for me. Never give up till you find it! Same goes for the quill tips. Those take a lot of tries too. ^^'
I tried Gelpens too, but like you said: They make ugly and far too broad lines.
As a tip for the current drawing: Go to a copy shop and let them make a copy of your drawing on two times the current size. If you can't get the white lines to be as thin as you want them to be, make the drawing bigger to make them seem smaller.
You can always make it smaller once you found the perfect equipment. That's what I did.
Wow that was so helpful thank you so much I am definatly going to try different quils and airbrush paint ^.^ Your art also inspired me to do more traditional art and to start acrylic It looks so fun. Thank you for indirectly changing my art for life XD
Go wild~! I think I started to notice them thanks to Clamp. Not that they use a lot of white lines, but they do splatter white onto their drawings. I realized that some things can be pronounced that way. And then I started to notice how many other people use white (or just lighter) lines to keep the drawing clear.
I love traditional. It's really fun in my eyes, and it teaches you how to deal with your own mistakes, since you can't delete anything there.
Have fun! Hope you'll enjoy it. ^^ I have to warn you just about one thing: Acrylics are fantastic to paint with, but will - at least at the beginning - not really work for small details. Go wild on a big scale and you'll be happy.
C'est beau! Moi je suis dans l'acryliques c'est temps si! C'est super le fun! Pour les linges fines, blanches out autres couleurs, j'utilise les marqueurs sharpie à l'acrylique (well, water based paint anyway)! Ils ce vendent cher OmerDessers. Il sont dans une boite en vite verrouiller à clé, so tu dois demander à un commis de te l’ouvrir. Anyway, ils ont de différentes grosseur de pointe, ils sont super!
