    I wonder how this artist(Phil Noto) uses or draws very clean lines?

    Hi, guys. How does this guy do these very clean lines?
    This guy is truly doing what I ultimately want to do.
    I heard corel painter gives more control of the lines than photoshop. Will that be the case? However I saw someone drawing clean lines with photoshop but that was only from a screen shot, so I couldn't figure it out.
    Does anyone know how to do it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Practice. I don't think those line are very clean or very interesting as far as line weight and sensitivity goes. Look at Iain McCaig if you want to study someone who is a master of line.

    He's also got a Gnomon DVD in which he goes over his inking process, among other things.

    Another thing: If you look at Phil's stuff, you'll see that, whether he's working in pencil, ink, acrylics, or digital, the line quality is pretty consistent. In other words, it's not the tools, it's the artist.
