How I make: NRTD pt 2 by Tigershark06 How I make: NRTD pt 2 by Tigershark06
Step two is the lines....

For the most part I use a 5px hard edge brush (modified to get rid of spacing to reduce pixelation problems). If I am doing tight closeups I will often go up to a 7px. For small shots I size down to a 4px, but always the same hard edge brush.

I also do all my lines these days with a 95% gray brush (almost but not quite black).

Included in this step are the frames. Forgive the tapered lines on this shot, I forgot to take off the "simulate pressure" when I stroked the frames. For the frames I use a combination of rectangle tools and pen tools shapes to create the frames for both functionality and expression in each of the cells. I stroke the foregrounds (backgrounds if there is something intricate) using the same 5px hard edge brush I use for the lines.

While I have the strokes up I go ahead and make two more separate layers, "frames" and "Thick Frames". "Frames" is made with a 5px brush, while "Thick Frames" is made with a 15-20 px brush and using black.

Other things of note are those adjustments I mentioned on the previous WIP. The proportions between Blaine and Lorna have been for the most part addressed, as well as adjusting where the frames sit on the page.

Okay the next step will be the flats, but I'm still in work on them so it will be 1/2 hour or better before that page gets up...
