Hey so I've been examining a new coloring style that actually incorporates the line art into the drawing (similar to Stanley Lau's). I'd like to know how I can make the line art so incredibly perfect that I can literally just take a paint bucket and fill in the basic color. Or, at least something smooth enough to simply turn into a multiply layer, rather than erasing it.
I draw directly in Painttool SAI or Photoshop, so scanning/transparency is not an issue. However, the lines I draw are usually very sketchy, and if I try to go through with a single stroke, I end up Ctrl+Z'ing many times before getting the right line.
I want the end product to be something like the image posted below.

I don't have much trouble with anything aside from the smoothness of the lines.
I'm also not looking to use the pen tool in photoshop or line layer tool in paint tool sai, because those take far too much time, and don't have much accuracy unless even more time is used.
