About This Class

In this class, you will learn the different line art techniques I’ve developed over the years and how you can become confident with your line art.

You’ll learn the difference between textured and solid line art, as well as thick and thin line art. I will also show you step-by-step how to draw long lines and gradual line art the right way. We also go through drawing tablet settings and some canvas settings so the base settings are correct for that crisp and smooth line art.

There is a template, a sketch of a kind, which I will be using to demonstrate the line art techniques and the process to you. You can download the template to speed up your learning process.

I will be using Clip Studio Paint art software to demonstrate the line art techniques, but the main principles taught in this class apply to most art software available today.

If you have been struggling with line art before, I hope this class will shed some light on you and help you overcome the struggles you are facing when drawing line art.

I'm glad to have you here with me; now grab your drawing tablet and stylus, and let’s draw some awesome line art!

Class requirements:

  • Drawing tablet and a stylus
  • An art software of some kind, such as Clip Studio Paint (recommended), Procreate, or Adobe Photoshop

Transcripts

1. Introduction: Now line art has always been a thing for me. Like I just loved the clear forms and shapes you can create with it. And the flow of lines and the visuality of what the learner can depot that Roy, hi there, my name is Johan Ekman and I'm an artist. And in this class, I will be teaching you how to draw a line art confidently. In this class, I will go through a drawing tablet settings, getting the basic setting dry to truly get your line art to the next level. I will also help you understand the difference between texture brush and a solid brush. How to draw a line art board, just one line liner. I will also teach you the difference between analyzing and mum anti aliasing effect and the staple session setting for the brushes, I'm going to give you a template to work on. So this is the drawing that we will be using when it comes to techniques of how to draw liner, I will show you the difference between thick and thin line. I'll draw a long lines and also how to start drawing the actual line because there is a certain process which I use to draw the liner. I will also go through how I move my arm and wrist and even upper body when I'm drawing line are all the tips and tricks that I will share, hopefully will help you draw than their liner. I would say this class is great for beginners, but there's also some techniques and tricks for the more advanced line art artists out there. So even the professionals probably find something new from this class, even though I draw any art, this class and the line art techniques and tips and tricks are suitable for anyone, even if you are working in a comic book industry or just doing concept art, you can still apply these techniques to your work. I'm excited for you to take this class with me. So let's get started. 2. Drawing Tablet Settings: Welcome to the very first lesson. In this lesson, we will go through the drawing tablet settings. Now you might have some other drawing tablet than I do. It's okay and you're drawing tablet might not have this setting and that is okay too. But if you do have a certain drawing tablet or that drawing tablet enables you to adjust the pen settings. That is what we will go through in this lesson. So let's get started. Now first I will open the pen settings. And from the pen settings you can see that I have fee from the soft and firm setting, you can adjust how softly or firmly you have to press your stylist to the drawing tablet to get some results. Now, I have said pip feel too soft, which means that I don't have to press so much. They stylus to my drawing tablet for it to create a liner in the Customize, I've done this little curve and you can see that the less pen pressure I have, the more output I have. So when I've said it this way, it means that it's not linear. So the more I press, the more output, know, it's kinda like less. I press more output I will get. That is the setting that I have in my drawing tablet. Now, as I said, you might or might not have this kind of setting and it's super okay, but if you do, those are the settings that I have for my drawing tablet. Now let's get to the next lesson. 3. Settings For Canvas And Resolution: In this lesson, I will show you the Canvas settings that I usually use when I draw a line, or in my case, I'm using Clip Studio Paint. But nevertheless, these settings are universal when it comes to art software. So let's create a new canvas. And I usually use something between 4,000 pixels to, I don't know, 7,000 more. And the resolution should be 300 to 600 DPI or PPI, which means pixels per inch or dots per inch. And we use these settings to make the print Lou good. So now that you know the canvas size and the resolution, we are ready to move on to the next lesson. 4. Textured Brush Or Solid Brush: In this lesson, I will show you the difference between texture and solid liner brush. The image that you see here has two different line art. One on the left has texture in it, and one on the right has no texture. Now let's go through the textured one. Now the textured one is one that has some sort of texture. It could be paper, rock, something that makes it not solid. The one that you see here is a solid brush, which doesn't show anything than black. But in texture brush, we have different shades of gray. And one of the key things here, remember, is that when you have color beneath the brushstroke, brushstroke will blend more to the color. But as you can see with the solid brush, there is no blending. And the reason why the blending happens is we have pixels that are unfilled, so there's no black, no color in the pixel. And that is the reason why you see these very pixelated effect here. So when you have this kind of texture brush, the color will show beneath the liner. That is the main difference between texture and solid line art brush. So when you have your art software open, try to find a brush that has some sort of texture in it, e.g. in Clip Studio Paint, we have the real pencil and I draw here. You can see that the color is visible below the line art. And if I use something like real G pen, you can see that the color is not visible below the line art, and that is the main difference here. So when you have your art software trying to find a pencil that has some sort of texture in it. And then you are good to go. Now later on in the class, you might want to switch the opacity to something else than 100 for your liner and when you do that, so I have my line art here. This would be the 100% opacity for the liner. And if I reduce it to something like 80, you can see that the color is now visible below the liner. Now when you are using solid brush, and if you want to show the color beneath the line art, reducing the opacity of the line art will then show the color. Now you know the difference between what is a textured brush and what is a solid brush. So now we are ready to move on to the next lesson. 5. Understanding Anti-Aliasing: In this lesson, I will go through the difference between anti aliasing and non anti aliasing. So let's go through how it will show in the line art. Now let's zoom into the line art that has anti aliasing. But you can see here is that we have pixels that have different shades of gray, which means that the analyzing is now in effect when you enable and hydrolyzing, it will make the line art software because it will transition the black to gray to lighter gray to, I don't know, super light gray. And then there's the transparent pixels. Now that is how anti-aliasing work. When you don't have anti aliasing, you can see difference is very clear. When you don't have anti aliasing on, you can see that there's no shades of gray, so there's no gradual shifting of the black to the transparent color. So that is the main difference between anti-aliasing and non and highlighting. So that is the main difference. The nonane hydrolyzing will give you very precise edges for your liner. And in some cases, it is also easier to color your drawing when you don't have the anti-aliasing on. Now, we are ready to move on to the next lesson. 6. Thick And Thin Line Art: In this lesson, I will show you the difference between thick and thin line art and when to use them and when not to use them. So you can see a few examples here, and the lower one does not have any variation in the line wife. Now the above circles do have line variation, and the circles also have this little shadow here. Now let's go through what these all mean when we are drawing line art, we can see that when we emphasize the line y with different line wide, we can suggest to the viewer that this is closer than this one, and this is something in the middle. Now when the objects have different line wife, as you can see here, this is a very thin line. I would say this is a medium line and this is a thick line. These little tricks and tips will suggest the viewer whether the object is far or near, as you can see here, we have the shadows, those ****, where the light source is. So when we are doing line art and if I would like to suggest that the light is coming from here, I could emphasize this side of the line art, which will tell the viewer that the light is coming from this direction. If I would do the same for this side, then the light would come from this direction. So now you can see that when we thicken certain parts of the line art, we are suggesting to the viewer that the light is coming from some direction. Now you know most of the fundamentals and you are ready for the next lesson. 7. How To Draw Gradual Line Art: Now as you know a lot about line art already, now, we are starting to put all of that knowledge in use. So let's get started on the gradual and one line lineup. So the Gretchen line art is something that we draw with a texture brush. You can also use a solid brush to do that, but that is more advanced, which I will be showing you soon. But let's focus on the textured brush first and doing a gradual line art. So I've added a template of sorts or our sketch for you to use as a base to draw your line R2. So please do open the project or art software and select a textured brush. That is the thing to do now should do. Because now we are starting to draw some line art. So the thing that I usually do in Clip Studio Paint is that I switch it to blue and reduce the opacity to something like 20 per cent. The reason why I do these is that I will see my line art more clearly. One thing to note is that do use white background. And the reason why you should use white background, even though it is straining to your eyes, it is that you will see the different shades of gray when you are doing line art with a textured brush, if you use gray background, you won't be seeing the shades of gray and you might not get the best results with your line art. Now when you have selected a texture brush to yourself, and you can see that the texture brush leaves unfilled pixels. So there are transparent pixels in the brush, then that is a good brush to use. It doesn't matter what kind of brush it is, but it has to have some kind of texture, texture in it. When you have the drawing open, Let's start actually draw the line art. Now the first thing, like if you are kinda like cold, not warmed up yet to draw anything as I am currently, I haven't drawn anything yet. So the best way to start is to select the Brush, select a correct brush size. So the first thing that we do is try out different brush sizes. So we know which brush size to use when we are drawing the line art, because we won't be switching the brush size when we draw the line art. So we only use one brush size. I could use something like 12. It looks good on this resolution. As you can see, we have 4,000, 5,000 pixels. Pixels could be good. How about 15? Even that looks good. But what if we use a four pixel brush? So let's try that. Now that doesn't look too good. And the reason why it doesn't look that good is that it's too small. The higher our canvas size you have and the smaller brush size you use, it won't produce good results. But if you have very low resolution, let's say 1,000 pixels by 1,000 pixels. And you use something like 25 pixel brush. It will look very messy because the resolution and pixel size of the brush doesn't match up. You can probably already noticed that we are getting a bit more advanced with the line art. And so you can see that we needed to learn the fundamentals first. So you can understand what I am saying now. So when you have selected a good brush size and in my case, I would use something like 121015, something like that. In my case, I will just use 12 Gretchen line art is done by gradually drawing the line art. As you can see, I'm moving my stylus slowly, just following the template as it is showing me what lines I should draw and what I shouldn't draw. The way I draw gradual line art is that I draw a line. Then I draw another line. But the point where I start the other line isn't at the top. It's roughly in the middle, or somewhere like this or here. If I draw a line, another line, another line. So I started the line roughly from here. Okay. The reason why Gretchen liner is easier for you to start with, because it is slower to do. You might think that it's easier to draw just LeBon line, but in my opinion, it is easier to start with a textured brush because you can truly slowly drew the line art and you don't have to rush the lines in any way. You can be as slow as you want and the results will be very good, even slowly going through the lines, one good tip that I have for you is to zoom out and zoom in to see the whole picture. And harder line art is working, or is it working? Now as I showed you, drawing, Gracia aligner is easier. So when we are drawing these long lines, you can see that these are not easy to draw. But when we have textured brush, you can gently, slowly draw the line are and don't have to worry if it is straight line or not. Because we have textured brush, it is more forgiving than a solid line art brush. Now as I've taught you, we can use the thick and thin method here to suggest a shadow. So the way I draw the shadow was that I create one line, another line. And then I color the empty space with the, with the line or the black or with a color. And then we can do the same thing here. And this would suggest that there's a shadow. And now you can see that we have different line whites. And this already creates a very nice-looking line art for the image. Now, if you see that some line art is too thick or it's this doesn't fit, then you either have to start over or you can just switch the line art, you know, the brush size to smaller one. Because I think can see even though this line art, in a sense looks good, it is too thick because we have a lot of details in the image. And if I use a thicker brush size, the details will be too cluttered and it won't look good. So my suggestion is that you start with a textured brush and do a gradual line art drawing. Now in the next lesson we will go through how to draw line art with a solid brush. 8. How To Draw Solid Line Art: Welcome to this lesson. Now, in this lesson, I will show you how to draw liner with a solid brush because it's a very different kind of experience. So we will continue with the sketch. And for you to select a solid brush, all you need to do is select a brush that does not have any texture in it. So when you draw the line, there's no unfilled pixels. So all the pixels are filled. It is not important to have anti-aliasing or not. So just select the brush that does not have any texture or any unfilled pixels in it. Now when you have selected the brush, Let's start drawing solid line art. Now, the way I draw a solid line art is that it's a bit different. In solid line art, you don't have the option of practicing or you don't have the option of drawing it slowly. Gradually, you draw one line and that's it. So let's get started. So in my case, I would start here and draw one single line. Now you might be like, well, that isn't straight, like it has these little bumps and it doesn't look that good. Now the reason why it doesn't look that good is because we don't have stabilization setting on. Now, if your art software has such a setting to play around with that in Clip Studio Paint, we have stabilization clearly here, which I can set to whichever value I like. So if I use something like zero and tried to draw line art, even though I'm drawing a bit fast, you can see that it doesn't look that good. Like I've drawn line art for, I don't know, maybe ten years or more or already. And it just doesn't look good. And for years I was thinking like, what is wrong? Like I like, what should I do to get straight lines? And one neat trick that I invented back then was to draw the line fast to get it straight. Now we have this nice little settings called stabilization. And I think in Adobe Photoshop It's called smooth, smooth than or smoothness. So if your art software has a stabilization setting which is crucial when it comes to solid liner. Then do play around with that. In my case, I tend to use something like 35. And I can then show you the difference, 0-35. Now, that is a smooth line. As you can see, there's no jitter. And this was a very fast pace drawn, drawn line art. And we can see that the result is very different. So stabilization setting is crucial when you draw, when you draw with a solid liner brush. Now the same thing applies to drawing with a solid brush than with the texture brush. Select a correct pixel size for the brush because we won't be changing that setting at all. So for me it would be something like ten. Now, don't worry, if you draw off the sketch, it is okay. It is enough that it looks good to your eyes and you are happy with the line that you have drawn. So you don't have to be perfect here. If you draw the line somewhere, please. And then another line like this, you can see that it doesn't correctly line with the sketch and it's super okay. I used the same technique as I did with the texture brush. Isn't I draw two lines? Well, there's a bit more than two and then fill the area that was empty. So that is how I draw the lines. Now there are a few key things when you are using solid brush or a texture brush. When we are using solid brush, we don't do gradual line drawing. We don't draw, draw the lines like this because it just wouldn't make any sense. That doesn't look good. What we should do is draw one line. Next line, that is what I call drawing one line. Instead of gradual lines. Texture brush, we use gradual lines. In solid brush, we use only one line. Now when it comes to long lines, like the hair that you see here, I don't use my wrist. I use my whole arm to draw the line. So not just the wrist, the whole arm. In some rare cases, I even use my whole upper body to draw the line. So I keep my Hand in place and twist my upper body to draw the line. But that is in rare cases. So usually I draw moving, moving, moving my arm, not the wrist. And SUSE, we have a very good line even though this was drawn pretty fast. In most cases, I use my arm movement, not my wrist, but in details like these, I only use wrist, so I don't I don't move my arm that much. Not at all. So details. I tend to just use my wrist. Another thing to note here is that which kind of like movement is the best for you? For me when I'm drawing line art, I'm pulling the arm or the wrist or the line, and I'm pulling the line. And this would be pushing the line. This is pushing the line. So you are pushing the line or you're pulling the line. In my case, I tend to draw pulling the line. I'm drawing from top to bottom. Not so many times. The pushing, but in some cases I do. That could be a personal preference. So do try out which one you like. Do like to pull the line or push the line. Now another tip when drawing long lines, and I want to go through one tip for that. Always keep your focus on these two spots. The starting point, which is this because I'm pulling the line. And this is the end point. Now, when I draw a long line, I start here. I look at the starting point, put my pencil there, and then I look at the end point, not the starting point. So when I draw the line, I switched my eye from the start to the end. Okay, so let's draw a long line. So start from the top and we pull down Luke, where I start the line and then I switch my eyes to the end point, not to the starting point. So I don't keep my eye on the starting point and then somehow aim to the end point. Now, I instantly switch to the end point. Put your stylus starting point, switch your eye to the end point, draw the line, and then that's it. Then you can see whether it was, you know, had this little mistake there or not. And then you draw the line as many times you need to. Always keep your eye to the end point when you are drawing long lines with a solid brush, when you are using texture brush, it's a bit easier. Slowly go to the end point. When you're drawing along lines with a textured brush, you can control the lines more. Now you already know a lot about line art, different techniques, different fundamentals. And now we will start the actual drawing process. So let's get to the next lesson. 9. The Process Of Drawing Line Art: Welcome to this lesson where we are drawing the line art. Now you already know a lot about liner, and this is the moment when we are collecting all the things that we have already learned. And now we will draw the actual liner. Now you know the difference between textured brush and a solid brush. Now, it is your time to choose which brush to use. When I have selected a brush and a correct brush size, one thing that I keep in mind is I don't switch the pixel size of the brush when I'm drawing the liner. And I'm also keeping in mind not to switch the brush at all. So when you are drawing line art, I suggest that you draw the line art with one brush and with one brush size. So I have selected a texture, number one for my liner. The element that I'm usually drawing first is the one that I'm most interested in. And the reason why I do this is that I want to get a good vibe to the drawing or with the drawing. Now, I usually draw the eyes first. In this case, I will start with the eyes. And the way I start is just doing Gretchen lines and coloring the eye lashes like this. Okay. So I'm just moving my wrist here because I have details slightly moving my arm when it comes to switching either position or the object that I'm drawing. So there's a lot of lines just going through like this. And the iris to start to draw, like I said, two lines and then color what is left between. And as you can see, I'm gradually going through the lines that I see in the sketch. And there we go. That wasn't that hard to do. But the main thing is that you have to have a good brush. That is actually one thing to remember. Good brush, brush size. Know the fundamentals of how to draw the lines. There we have it. That actually looks pretty good already, and it didn't take that many minutes. Now for you to progress the image fast, I suggest that you have a sketch that is as complete as it can be, because when you are drawing line or it is faster when there's no mistakes that you have to correct on the way when you are drawing the line art. So in my case, I will leave you a few sketches. One is a very messy one which has different lines that I didn't draw. In my final drawing, it has some lines that you can make decisions whether to include those or not. So it is a harder to follow sketch and it easier sketch to follow. Now, even though I prefer to first draw the elements that I like the most in the drawing, usually the eyes, I tend to draw them first. I also prefer to start from the sharp lines. And what I mean by short lines is lines like this. These are kind of like easy to draw. These are sharp lines. And the reason why I start with short lines is the warm up, I get a better feeling for the brush that I'm using. So when you have a good wide with the brush that you're using, that you are using. Then as suggested, you are ready to move on to the long lines because they are always harder to draw and the short lines now. And also when I'm drawing these detailed things, I tend to zoom in quite a lot. As you can see, I'm 150 per cent zoomed in, not even 100 per cent, which would be kind of thing, usual way of drawing line art, but I tend to go truly close to the line so I can get very crisp looking lines. And the crisp looking lines comes from the fact that you're zooming in. Because then you are not. Then we are truly focusing on the little details and that is the thing that I'm usually doing with my liner drawings. So I start with a short lines and I saved the long lines, long lines, Nadir on pigs. Then I have warmed up and I feel the pen differently or the stylus and the brush differently. So it's easier for me to control the lines when I'm drawing the line art. Now that we're starting with a texture brush. Now if we start with a solid brush, the same principles apply. I tend to draw the ones that I'm mostly interested in. In this case, it would be it I essentially we see unjust. Now going through the lines and when you want to draw a super detailed line, as you can see, I'm pulling the line, moving the pen slightly up from the tablet, which creates this very sharp pointy line to your drawing. So when I'm drawing, I'm drawing the line and lifting the pen from the tablet to get a very sharp looking lines. Now that is a solid brushes. So solid brush is just diagonal, drawing those one lines. And then that's it. If you want to emphasize something, then just know, fill the empty area and progress from there. So that is with a solid brush. Now, I promised to show you a vast solid brush which combines gradual line art and solid line art together, which is a bit different way of drawing line art. But I can show you how to do that, but you do have to have a special brush for it. And in my case, I'm using the solid number two, which is my own brush. But the main point here is that you can build these brushes to yourself to your own liking. So I've built this brush specifically to draw baryon aligned wife with one brush, with one line, which isn't easy, but it creates very nice-looking effects. Now the way this brush works, and this is more advanced, but if you want to develop your line art skills, turn next level, then I will show you this trick to this brush is very hard to master, to be honest. So even though, even though I've used this already, it's still not that easy to use because it is actually very hard. But you can see that this was one line and we had different line whites, so there's thick, thin and thick again, and that is how this brush works. So even though I'm, It's just one line. Drawing one line. I'm controlling the line wife of how much pressure I put on to drawing tablet with my stylus. So when you saw the drawing tablet settings, Clip Studio Paint has certain settings for these brushes that mimic the same effect. So the less I press, the thinner lines I get, and the more I press the bigger lines I get. But only with one brush stroke. This brush isn't easy to use, but it does give you very good results. And and as you can see, doing vera line white with a solid brush. Honestly, it gives you very good line art. Now, I have drawn a finished piece for you to study. And this is the result that you would get with that, with this brush and with this method of doing one line or gretchen line depending on the situation. So you can also draw these lines were actually, which would mean something like this. That would be Gretchen align with a solid brush. And this is the result that you would get with that kind of approach. So again, study the picture and I will also leave a video showcasing this to you. And when we do emphasizing, which means that we are now applying shadows to drawing with a solid brush. This is the result that you would get. Now, it is somewhat debatable whether to draw the foreground, middle ground and background. Which means that this being the background, this being the middle ground and this being the foreground. You could draw the lines thicker to the foreground, slightly. So figure to the middle ground and a thin line for the background. But it is debatable whether that creates better results than just drawing the line art with one brush size for the whole drawing. But in this case, I would say that it is better to not emphasize the background, but emphasize the middle ground and the foreground to differentiate the background from the middle and foreground. So in this case, it works better to leave the background with a thinner line. Now as a last tip for drawing line art, I suggest to draw the line art in one seating, meaning that when you start to align our process, draw the whole drawing kind of like at once. So you don't draw certain part first and then get back to the drawing again. But it's just draw the whole line art in one seating. Now that's all for this lesson, and I will see you in the next lesson. 10. How To Color Line Art: Welcome to the coloring lesson. Now, in this lesson I will show you how to easily color your line art when it's done and ready. So it is very easy to color the liner. All you have to do is create a new layer. And this is a tactic that I use, is to create a new layer, create a clipping layer to the line art layer that you have. It's a clipping mask in some Arch software and in Klebsiella or paint, it is saying clipped to the layer below, and that is what it is doing. So in this way, when you have done your line art, the thing that you want to, you might want to do is color your learner. So it will be super easy to do it this way. Now when you want to switch the color to something else, you can lock the transparent pixels, which we now do, lock the transparent pixels, which means that the pixels that do not have anything in them won't be colored. And in other words, the pixels that do have something in them will be colored. So now that I just select the color, fill the color and I can choose whichever color to use with the line art. So this is the reason why I use it this way. It's easy to try out different colors fast and efficiently. What I also suggest is to draw a line art into different layers if you are coloring them afterwards. So when you draw a line art into different layers, you can more easily color the line art later on, so you don't have to pick, like draw the color to the skin lines first and then the I don't know the clothing lines. When you have all those lines in different layers, then it is easy to just create a layer, clip the layer to the layer below, and then just fill the layer with a color. So e.g. if I do feel this now with green, you can see that the whole line is filled with a specific color. So that is how you easily can color your line art. And that's it for this lesson. 11. Final Thoughts: Hi there. So I wanted to do a final wrap-up of the whole line our class. So what we have learned in this class are the fundamentals of how to draw a line are different techniques. And I've also showed you different tips and tricks to truly get that line are looking good. Now few important settings to remember is that the brush truly matters. So if you have a poor brush or pencil that you are using, well then the results will be poor too. So hopefully you have an art software that truly gives you plenty of options. Choose a very good brush for yourself. And also one thing to remember is to pick a size and resolution for the drawing that is suitable for liner. I usually tend to use something like a three or a two size paper, or then in pixel sizes like 4,000, 7,000. And the reason why I use these kind of sizes is that then I can do precise, clear, crisp looking line art for the drawing. What I also want you to remember is that practice makes champion or something like that. The thing is that I have drawn line art for many years already. And only in this point in time I am able to produce these kind of line art. So practice is something that you just have to do to get better at line art. There is no shortcut to creating good liner, but if anything, Canvas Size, good brush stabilization, setting. Those are the things that will definitely improve your line art a lot. Now, don't forget to upload your work to the space that is assigned for them. And I tried to comment and give you feedback on your drawings whenever I just have time. But if anything, thank you for taking this class with me and hope you keep on drawing awesome line art.
