    Draw the Outline

    1.

    2.



    Do anyone know how to create the outline of these 2 kinds of picture in PS? I tried to work with Wacom but it doesnt look good and it is pretty difficult to control the pressure and the shape of outline

    I tried something like that (the following graphic). I always want to draw a line like 2nd and 4th one. But the result is always 1st and 3rd. Any suggestion? Should I alwasy use pen tool to control the path rather than using wacom by my hand?

    You'll need a very steady hand and a not-too-subtle approach, which is hard for me. Mainly, it just takes a lot of practice. Anyone got any tips?

    Noë: I'm not sure if this is how brokencow did it in his tutorial, but I always just hit Ctrl + B and then bump up the blue and cyan.

    thanks, lol
    why didn't I think of that?

    EDIT;

    so.. I've been trying this a little bit. Took a sketch that I made for a school assignment.
    It didn't really work out great, but well I don't have a tablet or anything like that, just a mouse
    the sketch
    lined
