Drawing in PhotoShop

I only use the line tool. Never the paint brush or pencil.

This is because its easisr to maintain and keep it cleaner,
remember, only use the line too in small incraments, lines too long will make it look bizarre, then I fill in the colors with the paint bucket.

Textures, I use the paint brush, and the noise filler. ans smudge too.
 To take out the lines and make them softer, use "blur" or Blur more, which ever looks better at the time, (This will make it look more real)

Shadows and Highlights: Dodge and Bure tools, but be care ful how you use them, and be caucious about the [highlights, midtones, and, shadows] modes, the wrong mode could make it look wrong...

There's more to say, If anyone's interested, let me know, but I may not get back right-away, give me a couple of days. '<img'>

 I'd be glad to tell my techs to anyone in need. '<img'>

I haven't applied this to any drawings I've releasde, but for shadowing and highlighting, I've started to do this:

First, I create a new layer for shadows and highlights, and bring the opacity down. Then, using a soft edge brush, I use black and wwhite colors to add it in. It looks good, and is more uniform in shading than burn and dodge.
