HL's Artist Tips: Lineart by Haychel HL's Artist Tips: Lineart by Haychel
Trying to write something meaningful but I failed... :iconohokayplz:

I have covered why I don't really do line-arts here. I still do them sometimes, but they are just sooooo dreadful to do... >_< The "line-arts" you still see from my arts are usually straight from the sketch~

Next guide:

What would you call 'rendering'? It looks somewhat similar to lineart in the end (please don't take that offensively). I often struggle with painting over a sketch. I'd like to try a more painterly approach, but it never looks quite finished when I do it.

Haha I don't get how this question is offensive... 0u0

I didn't say I hate linearts, it is just I don't prefer to do them~ It is the process of making linearts that I don't really like. As you have said, "rendering" looks somewhat like linearts, but I could make this happen in half the time when I do "linearts". Of course I would prefer the former more, would you not agree? :3c

Anyway, I have some little descriptions about rendering here: [link] You may want to have a lil read. I'm not particularly sure if that would help, but I hope it gives you at least some ideas~!

Also, how "finished" the paintings look is determined by the artist him/herself. With rendering, you could sit down and fix stuff for hours and make things look perfect. Some though, prefer to just make it look loose and expressive. It really differs for each individual!

This will make my life easier. Thank you. *bows* But.. I still don't know what line art looks like. Is it like the outline of pictures?

The line arts I meant are those that you see a lot of manga artists do. They sketch and then they apply solid black lines over the sketch.

I always have trouble picking a good palette and just default to the same colors. Maybe I'm just too comfortable in my routine, but do you have any tips for trying out palettes?

Oh, there are so many presets out there~ Here is one of them: [link]

Try limiting yourself to use the colors provided ONLY, that will help a lot! :D

I should give it a try. Do you just use the solid colors or do you also use them with opacity and shading techniques to get lighter or darker colors?

It depends on what you want to strive for, but I usually go with shading techniques as well.

I tend to line-art just my characters and the foreground, then stick in clouds and fire and other 'flowy' things during the colouring phase; my lineless also resembles shapeless blobs, so I kinda have to have lineart...

I used to do drawings with lineart but I just don't have the patience for it ^^;
So that's why I went into digital painting instead XD
Last time I did lineart was in May this year though o3o

Oh, wow, I really had no idea that not having linearts for the same image made such a difference to the fluidity of the image... great tips, I hope you make more!

Well, to be fair, some artists can make it look flow-y even with line-arts, but I still reckon it is easier without line-arts
