Hello Xia,
My name is Vince and I purchase one of your tutorial on how to draw female manga. I was following step by step all the way up too, where you starting to clean up your stretched lines around the face and body. This is where I got lost, I was trying to go back and remove those lines, however I was unable to do so. If you could, please give me some advise on how to clean up the stretch lines.

I am sorry i wrote stretch instead of sketched.

Hello, Vincent
Thanks for supporting
1) Draw sketchy line on the saparate layer
2) Final drawing on top layer
3) before I merge I lower the opacity of the sketchy line layer to about 50%-however you want to look.
In most of my stuff if you look closely there are still some sketchy lines that I intentionally leave because it creates energy and personally I like it when it just visible enough.

**Do not focus so much on lines as a painter, focus on edge and value.

***I would recommend you watch the tutorial more than once. Watch it over and over (most people watch it three times average) you will catch things that you didn't catch the first time (it's an educational video so the content is very packed). Do not expect to get everything the first time you watch, do not expect the exact result in one painting either. Art is something delicate, comes with practice, dedication and precision.

Good luck

Hey Xia

Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for the great tutorial and of course the many other great ones. I'm learning so much, although I am a total beginner with drawing figures etc, this is giving me the basics I need. Thank you !

Anonymous> You are welcome. Keep it up and always stick to core basic sounds simple but once you understand the foundation...everything is all in there...I am also still looking for bit and pieces that are missing to make my art better.
