Hey, might be weird to come across this in your comment section but, do you have any tips on line arts, specifically on how to make it look neat yet thick enough to be visible ? Ink blobs and ink strips are really frustrating to deal mostly.
TsaoShin Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Professional Digital Artist
Generally for my traditional ink stuff, I keep a scrap piece of paper near by to periodically clean out the fibers that get stuck in the pen that causes the ink blobs.  Other than that its usually using a light touch for corners and a heavier hand for long straight smooth lines :>
MaxesAndAces Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ah, I see. Have another tip to keep an arm steady to prevent or lessen the chance to screw up the line art ? =P (Razz) 

Cheers, dude ! Sorry to bother.
TsaoShin Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Professional Digital Artist
Try to loosen up on your grip and go slower if you need to.  A lot of linework is feathering as well

tsaoShin, not to pester you or bug you or make you do this, but could you donate a few points if you have any? it would really help me tremendously!
TsaoShin Featured By Owner May 14, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
I actually don't have any points to give at the moment!
jebyhead Featured By Owner May 15, 2018  New Deviant
