For line art, I have a nice system that seems to work. I do the regular outline with the small and outline everything. I then go over the outer lines with the medium. Then I fix the hair and even out the outer line with the small. Then I take the small and fix up the inside lines.
Thanks for explaining! You've got a great technique!!

Here's something I made up for another forum asking me about line art (I know it's not really pet art, but it gets the point across):

You need a medium sized pen and a fine point one. I use Faber-Castle PITT artist pens Small and medium.


First, I draw the picture in pencil. It tends to look messy. Sorry about the bad scan, I had to darken it to make the outline show as I draw lightly and it made the shadow show up even more.



I outline it with the small pen. The hair looks spiky here, but that will change.


then I use the medium pen to make the outer outline (does that make sense?) thick.


Then I take the small pen and fix the hair on the outside and make the outline nice and even.

Then I take the small pen again and even out and add line thickness to the inside lines.

Voila. That is all. If I want to make a MS Paint friendly template, I use a few more steps in PSP9 and MS Paint to make a nice, MSP friendly outline.

It looks lovely and well suited type of drawing a kid would appreciate.
