Hey I was wondering how you make smooth lineart in gimp? I can't seem to figure it out. Everytime I do lineart, it looks really rough. Anyone know what to do? =/
All I can think of is just using the path tool over all your lines and make sure you have anti-alias (I think that's how it's spelled) on.
Use Inkscape instead. It is great for vector drawing and allows for some basic colouring as well. Then use GIMP for the pixel manipulation.
I like to decrease the opacity of my brush and then go over lines zoomed in several times. gets that nice varying thickness line look
I've been struggling with this problem myself. Try switching to the Ink tool - it makes much smoother lines, and the size-pressure control is better if you're using a tablet.
(You'll have to change the settings to get rid of the calligraphy look - set everything at zero except Size, which should be about 1.0 in Adjustment and 0.8 in Sensitivity. Also, brush shape should be the default circle.)
