So woof, if you notice this thread again, I appreciate your advice. I had a question regarding this, though.
Assuming I start with thick, bold, black lines, is there a nice method to finely/smoothly reduce the thickness of the lines very easily?
I was experimenting with feathering and anti-aliasing but those methods didn’t work too well. I also tried an edge enhancement filter which worked really well for some things, but not others (and also caused other issues). I can’t think of any other way other than like having to manually re-draw the lines or smooth them out with brush/smudge strokes, which in my case isn’t really an option because I don’t have a tablet and doing that with a mouse is like fux no thx.
I do understand what you mean regarding the strong color values to counter balance the dark lines, but sometimes I want the colors to be dark and drab anyway, so n this case I need to figure out what to do with the lines…
Well, anyway here’s what I’m currently working on.
Shhh it’s a secret, don’t tell no one.
I was planning on making his pants camo, and giving his dogtags a chain, and adding a flag tattoo to his right arm. But yeah I’m getting lazy and impatient again.
