I’m relatively new to digital drawing and I was wondering how do you get the lines to look so clean and darkened lol

It usually comes down to making a line in a single stroke. If you don’t get it at first try you can undo your move and try making another stroke. ( personally I don’t see a shame in that )

(CTRL+Z for the first undo and CTRL+ALT+Z for further undos in PhotoShop)

Sometimes it takes a lot of undo-redos…. The more you get comfortable with your drawing tablet, the easier it will be for you to draw the lines the way you want. Please don’t get discouraged!! Practice makes perfect!

What is more, Photoshop (as well as PaintTool SAI) has the option to rotate your canvas in real time. Works great for the horizontal lines!

In PS – just hold R. In SAI you can assign the Rotate button when you double-click on the icon here:

PaintTool SAI has one feature that PS doesn’t and that’s the line stabilizer.

Even when drawing the line slowly, the program smooths it out!  

I only covered the basics, but I hope it helps you Nonie! And…

Truth be told, sometimes, the perfect looking lineart is simply the result of re-sizing the image… :V

( As for ‘darkened’ I’m not sure what you meant… sorry… ‘-’ )
