Lineart on Paint Tool Sai by elixirXsczjX13 Lineart on Paint Tool Sai by elixirXsczjX13
Just managed to copy/paste this together out of the whole day.

Hrm! Basically- that's how I outline in a nutshell. I've been asked so many times and THIS is how I get such awesome lines! I can't think of anything else to add- everything is there xD

Hope it isn't confusing- or if I over-explained something
:shrug:

-I use only Paint Tool Sai, I make no modifications on a different art program.

-My Bamboo Tablet is medium sized, your basic tablet.

-I use Windows XP.

that's it XD;

EDIT!

ALL MY DRAWINGS ARE SAVED AS A .PNG</i> THAT HELPS IT MAKING EVERYTHING CLEAN!

When I saw the part about flipping half a circle to make a perfect circle, I thought about when Spongebob drew a head, erased most of it, and got a perfect circle.

But aside from that, you have the cleanest lineart I've seen yet! And the stuff about the rotate tool was a real eye opener. I never thought about that! If I hadn't had lost my tablet pen, I'd do this really well.

Help! Whenever I draw, my pen strokes don't thin out at the end. I don't know how to fix this?

I learned a lot from them. I still need some time to digest and take practice myself. Anyway, thanks a lot.:happybounce: 
I am a newbie to Paint tool sai. I used to paint with a good Mac paint tool named MyBrushes on Mac.

You're like me I have to always turn my paper in real life, Most of my friends have it straight and they look at me weird when my papers almost sideways.

is there a special tool you use? or is it just one fluid motion to make smooth lines plus the stabilizer/smoother?

I'm confused. 
I apply all the settings you made​​, yet when I zoom that makes it blur my lines / my drawing. 
Do you know why?

Very helpful! Especially the rotating thing! Every time when I draw hair that's curvy it's always so shaky which annoys me a lot, but thanks to this tutorial it helps a lot! :D

ok i have a question, not sure if you'll know the answer....my lineart never comes out looking that clean when you zoom in...even with all the settings the way you have them set....the lineart looks a bit blurry..or fuzzy is a better word....its not the pen tool either because i use the same one many other people do........think you might know whats causing this? could it just be my computer?

hello!! i'm not the artist, but having a bigger canvas always helps for me? on something like the tutorial uses, i'd probably use 3000-4000 pixels? if that makes any sense, but you can wait for the artist to reply, i just wanted to try helping uvu

ahh!! wait, underneath the brush layout, or whatever it's called (where you can click to get your different brushes??) its right underneath there, there's supposed to be a sort of.. mountain-ish figure? like a "n" and then it gets harder and harder till its a really thick line, your problem could possibly be that it's on the "n" setting?? click on the thick line part uvu
i hope this is your problem?? it might be uvu;;

i downloaded the file but i'm a bit lost on how to use it, i never really took much time to learn Torrent File's when i use Winrar and other, can you help me out on this bit??
Reply
:iconwolfinmyheart:
wolfinmyheart Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Well, the file is a .zip or .rar file, yeah? If that's the case, you right-click it, and select 'unpack here' or 'unzip here' or something like that. That's how you unzip it. Then you have a Paint Tool SAI folder, and you click through it until you get to a map with a lot of folders, but also a lot of single files in it.
One of the single files should say start-sai. This is the one you click to open the program. Simple as that! :)
