Tips for smooth clean line art
Is your line art shaky, wobbly, sloppy, fat, uneven or pixelated? The subject of clean line art comes up a lot so I've gathered together a number of tips from various DA members that may help you improve your line art. Some of the techniques described below may contradict other techniques described below so you may want to experiment and decide what works best for you. Most of these assume that you have a digital tablet. (Make sure your tablet drivers have been installed correctly. If your cursor is behaving erratically it may indicate a problem with your tablet or drivers.) Some posts have been edited for brevity or spelling:
"I developed my own technique. And it works quite well for me. It raised my Lineart cleanliness from 24% to 98%, yeah, really. Here is how I do it digitally when I'm not using a traditional sketch:
:bulletblue: First a rough sketch, and I isolate it in its own layer then set its opacity to 50 or something near that value.
:bulletblue: Then on the second layer

make me draw a thing
So uh, hi.

I know I'm not exactly a big-name artist or anything, but if anyone ever wants a cheap commission, I'm here.

I'll draw anything but keep in mind I'm only just getting back into the swing of things with regards to drawing so it might not be great.

Feel free to specify which style of drawing you want-- hard lines, sketchy lines, loose scribbly colour, hard block colour, etc

i'm benjamin, i'm scottish, i'm seventeen and i'm awful

please please do comment or fave my work if you like it, i kind of thrive on positive attention

Skittysrule is my wonderful gf!

Tagged by FirePokeMaster. Thank you, Katharine, you just totally gave me an excuse to talk about myself!

01: Do you have a good relationship with your parents? 

Um, ish? Like, I'm really close to my dad nowadays. My mum is always busy tho and can be a bit mean so it's harder to say I'm close to her, especially when she's probably responsible for some of my mental health difficulties...yay for oversharing!

02: Who did you last say “I love you” to?

My dad, last night, before he went to the hospital

03: Do you regret anything?

Oh boy, everything. I guess the biggest things would be that time I turtled in on myself and didn't talk to my girlfriend for months because I thought that would be best for her. I was having a really hard time with depression and stuff and I thought that was the best thing but. Yeah no it was dumb.

04: Are you insecure?  

Yes! About everything! Welp.

05: What is your relationship status?

Taken! Been with my current gf Skittysrule since 21st December 2012 and I'm so grateful to have her!

06: How do you want to die?

I'll spare you the really emo answer and just say I don't want to drown.

07: What did you last eat?

The chocolate that Ginger got me for my birthday.

08: Played any sports?

I used to do Judo, which basically involved bigger kids beating me up and me understanding nothing. I don't remember when exactly that stopped, but a long time ago.

09: Do you bite your nails?

Sooo much. It's a problem. You know when you bite too low on your nail and you have the INSTANT PAIN? That's my life.

10: When was your last physical fight?

I don't do physical fights.

11: Do you like someone?

Yep! Obviously, it's my girlfriend.

12: Have you ever stayed up 48 hours?

Of course. I had insomnia for like, almost my whole life.

13: Do you hate anyone at the moment?

Apart from myself? Uh, there's a few bad abusive people I've known who I'd probably say I hate.

14: Do you miss someone?

My girlfriend lives in England, so yeah, her. Also my dad's in hospital rn and I'm really attached to him so being alone is hard.

15: Have any pets?

Two rabbits (Benjamin and Patches, one of them has the same name as me for...complicated reasons) and a doggy (Hazel! She's a springer spaniel)

16: How exactly are you feeling at the moment?

Well. I'm worried about my dad, but apart from that I'm not as bad as I usually am? Might have hit the point where you're so stressed you get calm, haha.

17: Ever made out in the bathroom?

In the bathroom? I don't think so.

18: Are you scared of spiders?

Yes, deathly. They're terrifying. 

19: Would you go back in time if you were given the chance?

I can tell you with authority that would mess up the timeline.

20: Where was the last place you snogged someone?

Ummm my bed?

21: What are your plans for this weekend?

Next weekend I'm hoping to like, hang out with my friends? That's kind of what I hope for from most days. I love my friends.

22: Do you want to have kids? How many?

I think that given my mental state, it would be irresponsible for me to have kids. I wouldn't be able to look after them properly. So idk if I want them, but I probably won't be having them.

23: Do you have piercings? How many?


24: What is/are/were your best subject(s) 

English and Modern Languages (Spanish, French, Italian)

25: Do you miss anyone from your past?

Yeah but I guess that's life.

26: What are you craving right now?

Friend interaction.

27: Have you ever broken someone’s heart?

I think so. Eep.

28: Have you ever been cheated on?

Dear God I hope not? Nah but I trust my gf, she wouldn't.

29: Have you made a boyfriend/girlfriend cry?

I don't think directly? 

30: What’s irritating you right now?

Loneliness lol

31: Does somebody love you?

I can actually say yes with some degree of confidence. Obviously my brain goblin tells me nobody loves me, and sometimes I believe him, but right now I'm pretty sure that at least my girlfriend loves me.

32: What is your favorite color? 


33: Do you have trust issues? 

Little bit yeah. But I tend to focus on one person in my life and trust them absolutely, then be paranoid around everyone else.

34: Who/what was your last dream about?

I dreamt about sneaking into prom. I'm not going to prom so I, uh, yeah.

35: Who was the last person you cried in front of?

Time is a blur to me lol. I can't remember what order events have come in. I've definitely cried in front of people since, but the last time I actually remember was in front of my gf last time she was up here, I started crying over a homework-related issue.

36: Do you give out second chances too easily?


37: Is it easier to forgive or forget?

To forgive.

38: Is this year the best year of your life?

Nope, not yet, nothing's happened.

39: How old were you when you had your first kiss?

Um, let's see...13?

40: Have you ever walked outside completely naked?

Dear God I hope not.

41: Favorite food?


42: Do you believe everything happens for a reason?

Little bit. I don't think EVERYTHING happens for a reason, but I believe in the guiding force of fate.

43: What is the last thing you did before you went to bed last night?

...Definitely not writing sex scenes about my OCs.

44: Is cheating ever okay?

I think it's a little complicated. Cheating on your partner is never okay, per se, but I can understand situations in which someone would "cheat", such as if they're being manipulated by someone to do sexual things outside of their relationship. I wouldn't get mad at someone for cheating if they only did it because they were being abused and manipulated. Or if your partner is the abusive one, and you seek comfort from soneone else...I'm not gonna judge.

45: Are you mean?

I try not to be. I almost never say something with the intention to hurt someone, but as I have Asperger's Syndrome, sometimes I sound really rude and blunt and I feel really bad about it.

46: How many people have you fist fought?

A whole zero.

47: Do you believe in true love?


48: Favorite weather?

Snow! Heavy snow!

49: Do you like the snow?

Haha yes! Global warming means I see it less often the Benji, recycle.

50: Do you wanna get married?

Yes! I wanna marry my gf!

51: Is it cute when a boy/girl calls you baby? 

Call me ANY cute nickname and I will melt on the spot because I love cute nicknames.

52: What makes you happy?

Mostly my gf and my friends.

53: Would you change your name?

Already have! (finger guns)

54: Would it be hard to kiss the last person you kissed?

I'd be really happy to kiss her, seeing as she's my long-term girlfriend.

55: Your best friend of the opposite sex likes you, what do you do?

If one of my friends, male female or other, liked me, I'd try not to let it affect our friendship and not treat them any differently. I definitely wouldn't pursue them romantically though, as I have a girlfriend.

56: Do you have a friend of the opposite sex who you can act your complete self around?

Gender is irrelevant in friendships for me. I can be myself around my female best friends, and my nb ones, and if I had male best friends I'm sure I'd feel I could be myself around them too.

57: Who was the last person of the opposite sex you talked to?

My mother~

58: Who’s the last person you had a deep conversation with? 

Hmmm. If you count conversations about bondage lingerie as deep, probably Ginger. (I don't remember the last deep conversation I had soz)

59: Do you believe in soulmates?

Yes yes yes yes!

60: Is there anyone you would die for?


Not tagging everyone because my only active friend on here is Katharine and she's the one who tagged me so yeah.

Idk. I'm probably gonna change my commission prices at some point, and they might have "extra" things you can buy. The extra points would go in here.

Also if I do adoptables, which I might, points would go here.
