Thank you so much for this tutorial! <3 How do you get your lines to be so smooth though? I recently bought a wacom tablet (it's my first time using a tablet)  and my lines look really messy. v.v

I do the line art, and when I color, there's white bits at the edge of the lines. Any help here please? ^^;

How much is Photoshop Elements 3.0? Cuz as you can tell from my line-art right now, I REALLY need it. :(

I'm not sure how much it is now or if you can even find it. That's a really old version of it but, the latest version is Photoshop Elements 9 which is about $76.99 on Amazon.

Thank you soooo much for such a great tut!! ^_^ I've been scanning pictures and doing the lineart in MS Paint and it's been getting on my nerves for quite a while! (I use line tools ^^;) Anywho, thank you once again!! I shall fave this for future reference!

it's a great tutorial in the sense that you tell which brushes you choose and give tips on the difference between making fast strokes and Smaller ones. For novices like me it's great to hear tips like that because even though for some people they seem trivial. To others it's a blessing to know them because they're hard to invent by yourself. thank you for this^^
