Hello dear anon! No need to apologise, I don’t think anyone has asked me this question before, so it’s all good : ) Ok. So here is a list of methods on tidying up the line art and make it look more sharp, dark and refined. Hope this could be helpful to you and if you have anymore questions just let me know❤
The default Photoshop brushes are great and decent, hard round pressure is my all time fav. There are also lots of amazing resources out there that could give you really sharp and crisp lines. Kyle T's Brush sets for example [ Link ]. It’s great to be adventurous and try them out, find the brush that suits your working style(●´▽｀●)ノ. Here is a [ master post ] of all the related ask about the brushes I use.
I normally adjust the ‘levels ’ after I finish the line art, it helps clearing out the gray tones and sharpen the dark lines. You can access this function through image > adjustment > Level (or hot key command + L for MAC or ctrl + L for PC.)
This function is more complicated than levels but works very well too! You could also find it under adjustment.
P.S Sorry I couldn’t supply more information on the functions since I am terrible at explain stuff ; - ; Here are some tutorial links with detail explanation on the function of levels / curves and how they work.

i got multiple questions about this, so i’ll just answer it on this ask
sorry i kept putting it off for so long…
so… i guess i would think of what kind of sky i would want
i like sunsets, so i’ll draw that
so i start with the very back color; it’s a dull purple
my intent is to go from purple/dark grey->peach/pink
i like to use this fuzzy brush
not sure what to call these… the ‘back’ / ‘dark’ clouds?
i put on random splotches at 40~50% opacity of dark blue around the edges
i’m going to put my light source at the bottom right, so i put a rusty orange color slightly at 10~20% opacity
then i blended the colors before i started to add more colors
the more you blend, the better the picture will look 8)
now i put my pen at around size 8-10 to put in thin areas of peach/gold where the light will hit at around 60% opacity
color it where ever you think it looks good
i like to adjust my colors and edit on sai
on an overlay layer on top of the drawing, i airbrushed so dark blue in at the top left and right
then near the end i like to use the combination of lower brightness and higher contrast
i’ll put a video later since my explanation is horrible most of the time…
sorry i put the drawing sideways… it wouldn’t fit
try these drawings for reference…
maybe use the eyedropper and use colors from these?
hope that helps
this is for the multiple color asks received
everyone play that dragon game it is A+

So last night, while bored out of my mind attempting to study for exams, I randomly thought to myself “how do cute little dogs see me”
Then I came across this awesome video, that gave me lots more information, and I felt the need to share it with everyone
I recently ran across a few tutorials that do a wonderful job explaining what all is required, as well as a nice template for those who use Sai as their main method of arting. So for all you guys and gals, here’s some reference links.
