    so whats your process for like "cleaning out" the lines and stuff :O and i noticed in your teaser avi do you like go through a single color first then branch off from there?

    I literally make a new layer and draw over the sketch. I have some go-to brush settings that I change depending on what I draw. What I do is a basic outline, then I add to the outline with parts that should be thicker outlined. (You can sorta tell if you look at Ronia's hair below, some strokes are more pronounced than others)

    Like here's about 3 hours in... This is when I began to test out colors on each part.

    My hierarchy is usually...

    Outline
    Some sort of highlight
    Shadow
    maybe another shadow if it's not good enough
    Base color

    ... for each part (Hair, skin, clothing, background). Sometimes I group parts together so that I don't end up with 200 layers to scroll through. Certain programs (Paint Tool SAI) have limited number of layers so I gotta be careful. D: But in SAI you can do shadow and base color all in one layer so it cuts down layers by a ton.

    I don't like doing things systematically, so there are times I let myself do things freely and do all coloring in a single layer. :)

    The comic actually ended up being ~200 layers, but that's because I slacked. XD

    Yep. Maybe a bit too fine since I was rushing to get it done by the end of it... But here's a screenshot of some of my poorly organized layers:
    [​IMG]

    That's not even the full list of the layers for that frame... But I split them by colors to help a bit. Orange/red are the outline layers, Purple for the decorations, green for the speech bubble, and blue is Ronia coloring (there's more layers below).

    Haha, it's an overkill for sure XD That Layer 180 haha

    But yeah. Digital is fun but takes some time to figure out tricks here and there (and shortcuts)!

    Ah yeah, illustrator is doable with mouse :)

    But drawing with a tablet is super different.... Try Microsoft Surface. I'm really thinking of getting one just to draw too. :x
