Has anyone tried Alchemy? It's a 2D random shape creator. It's a great tool for filling a canvas with information or 'density' to build on top of, or for beating artists' block by sparking your imagination-- kind of like looking in the sky and finding shapes in the clouds.

And dont forget, sometimes lines aren't meant to be clean. Some of my favorite street fighter art is the scribbly shit done for concepts. Heres an example:
Also consider not using linework at all, and showing form using only color/contrast/shadows.
I also think it's extremely important to consider line weight when doing a piece, unless you're doing something really cartoony take into consideration which lines taper off or get thicker. Lines "closer" to the viewer should typically be thicker and vice versa.

Digital, use Illustrator, practice some and you will get the hang of it, or you can scan in dark line sketches, live trace them into vector, then manipulate them.
