I'm gonna question you now:
(these questions are all about the lineart)
1)Do you use vector layor?
2)What edge shape do you use?
3)What size do you use?

1) No, I discovered vector layers like 2 weeks ago XDD;
2) edge shape? It's just pen xD
3) for pen it depends on how thick I want the lines. But usually I use 3 to 4.

i'm so lame T.T I use it though cause when you press alt your able to delete the extra bumps so the lines more smooth

yeah but I think it's annoying to be so careful on making the lines straight :\ We all have different ways on working with things so xDD

Yay! A tutorial!
This is very helpful, though translating it to Photoshop may be a bit difficult....
It looks so simple&easy when you break it down like that. But I know that I'm going to settle down confidently with my mother's semibroken tablet and Photoshop, spend about five minutes scribbling wildly, and then in desperation cry to the heavens "HOW DO PEOPLE DO THIS!!"
Put this scenario on loop for some time before I get the hang of it and/or lose interest.
