I apologize for not posting lately, I’ve been quite busy.
Aww, Thank you!
I know how frustrating inking can be, but I don’t think there’s much more I can answer to help with that. High-res plays a big role on how crisp your lineart will be, but a huge thing for me was getting a better tablet (I have an intuos 4) and a better software (I use clip paint pro). When I used photoshop, I used to often give up due to frustration as it was not made for painting.
I also have a video here showing my process. I hope that helps a bit more =)
So much cuteeeee!
