I have a bunch of laundry to fold and I'm not looking forward to it ugh. But I'm going to draw or something first.

While I have a moment, I think I'll draw something too for a change. Or finish this other thing I'm doing in Paint Tool SAI. I'm still not "getting it", though. Outside of brushier brushes, what's it doing that Photoshop can't?

Mostly just smoother brushes (at least if you have smoothing enabled) and more organic smudging tools.

Handling shapes? Get used to them and they'll work out. :3

No I mean like my hand always goes off to PotLand and what was supposed to look like a triangle looks like Mt. Everest. Craggy.

Only thing I can really think of is practice, I guess. :/
I'm not exactly perfect at drawing smooth shapes myself.

The best way to combat this is to keep your line drawings fast and loose. Inking is the same, but that requires more practice. You note that if it takes you a long time to draw a line, it starts to squiggle. Also, someone once told me that their professor taught them to draw with their arms, and not with their wrists to help with that movement. I'm sure the guy was right, none of my drawing teachers ever said anything more than "draw this".

Nothing in life replaces good ol' practice, though.

Also, I knew about the smoother lines in SAI, but kind of forgot about the smudging, which is sort of neat. I ended up finishing the picture in Photoshop anyway, though. :P I wasn't trying to do anything painterly, I was just seeing what it could do.

Quick strokes is always the way if you want unsquiggly lines, yes. :D

I pretty much never draw slowly unless I'm working out angles while sketching or keeping within lines when colouring.

Drawing digitally is great since you can pull the line quickly in a general direction, undo, try again, undo, and repeat until it looks good.

Thanks for the tips, both of you! Now I have a basis for drawing a Nuzlocke comic.

I mean, another one.
But the one I'm drawing right now doesn't exactly count because it's sh*tty. And even its name reflects that. The only thing there I really put effort in are the Pokémon. And you have seen my MSPaint Nidoking. All of the humans are stick figures, save for Erika, who plays an important role in our player character's main goal, and even HE is a stick figure save for one epic team shot before the first Giovanni battle, and Giovanni plays a vital role in the plot yet he's STILL a stickman.

(My stickman construction skill level is really good though so that kinda saves me there?)

Stickmen are fine if you can produce an award-winning plot. :3
