Tips for thin lineart by ikr Tips for thin lineart by ikr
I hope this can be helpful to anyone ^^'' Please forgive any mistakes on the text OTL

Two extra notes:

:bulletpink:VECTOR PEN

I would have liked to explain more about this tool but I think that experimenting yourself is much better. Although I would like to remark that this is really useful to draw objects or symmetric stuff. Also, I use both the brush and the vector pen to do the lineart on this video [link], in case you're interested.

:bulletpink: HIGH PASS

There's a very useful tutorial by ~hannahjenny about this filter

Thank you for reading!

How do we get that super smooth effect when colouring (like the hair in the last images)?? I got the Sai free trial and I'm trying to figure out how to get that quality. :/

How do you create a large canvas? Then how do you shrink it down? And when drawing on a large canvas, do you have to draw big so the drawing won't look tiny when you shrink the canvas, or can you draw normally?

1) if you're using SAI it should ask you what canvas size you want to use; my default canvas size is usually 3507 x 3507. 
2) if you want to shrink it, you click canvas (on the top of the program's page) and look for "Canvas Size.." 
3) lastly, if you draw on a large canvas, I usually draw my characters to fit the canvas.
