    Lineart understanding problem

    I somehow sees a lot of thier linearts nicer so i give it a try but somehow my lineart looks plain and flat and I've been trying to understand it but it's quite hard.So can someone answer me this:
    1.Lineart is according to the light direction ?
    2.How thick do I need to weighting it ?

    Also please give me tips on lineart too if you can

    1. Yeah, some times I is (it depends on the style).
    2. Depends on the style and what are the variables for the weight (which in most cases are: shade and deep).

    I think the best way to understand lineart is working different styles and understanding your tools, knowing what kind of lines you can do with a rapidrograph and a nib can change the lineart a lot.

    Basically, you want to make certain parts of your line thicker than other parts if you want to emphasis certain parts of the body, clothes, hair, etc. I suggest you take a look at comic book art (preferably black and white ones because you'll see the lines better) and take a look at the lines.

    One common form of line art is to make the outer lines thicker than the inner lines.
