Photoshopped Line Art Path Way by dan-knauff
Photoshopped Line Art Path Way
So I'm really new at line arting, and I've been told several different ways to line art by others ^^" One I was told to up the image levels in photoshop then trace it in illustrator, so I tried that in it looks like I drew with pen. The other was something I discovered on my own by selecting all the lines and going to Path-> create path outline-> fill path in photoshop with a tolerance of 10, then filled the path. It's more bolded and I'd like and some of the fur lines got lost from the original art dan-knauff.deviantart.com/art/…


THis is the photoshop method i described. compare it to: 
dan-knauff.deviantart.com/art/…


So yeah i'm trying to compare the two methods, and then working on a third way of line arting ^^" 
critiques or suggestions would be useful. I'm still new at line art though keep in mind.

Skull-masked wolf Random 2AM drawing~ by dan-knauff
Skull-masked wolf Random 2AM drawing~
So I was looking up random dragon drawing tutorials cause a friend showed me a hilarious one awhile back and I wanted to show it to somebody, then I ended up seeing a bunch of wolf sketches and pics. Some had like just the bone structure and some had different head views, so I had a random idea to draw at 2 am and made a wolf/canine/creature with a skull mask strapped on his face. There is a back story to it which I MAY (unsure yet) make a comic for. 

Currently trying different line art styles to see which works best so I can attempt to color it. I'm still new at lining on the computer ( I don't have a good tablet and am just using photoshop and/or illustrator with the laptop mouse pad :U ) and uncertain of how well it's turning out ^^" Could use some critique later.

Sparky Drawz by dan-knauff
Sparky Drawz
Here is a drawing I did in the summer of 2013.  It was originally an 18" x24" drawing and wouldn't fit in the scanner without having to like piece it together as a puzzle XD SO yeah there are a few division lines visible from where i pieced it together.  Anywho, this is my dog I drew and added a person for no real reason other than to give like a forced perspective feel as if it were a tiny person or a giant dog. :T  My dog is named Sparky. :3 this is my favorite out of all my drawings so far, but still i'm trying to improve.
