Well, thank you again! Your advice was really insightful, and I'll definitely be posting more on the forums.
I gave your notes a glance over, but I'll definitely need a while to comprehend and process it all. Again, thanks for the advice.
As a side note; I just had to address your question about my line quality. No, it's not a sketch, at least, not intentionally. Currently I'm running with a Surface Go tablet with Clip Studio, Photoshop, and Autodesk sketchbook installed. NO MATTER which program I use, or what brush I choose, none of my lines are clean, and the marks never exactly hit where I'm putting my pen...unless it's the "soft pencil" in clip studio, thus, why my lines look this way.
I've messed with stabilization, brush properties, I've tried resetting my computer, buying a different brand of pen, reinstalling the drivers, EVERYTHING. No matter what I do, every sharp, hard brush in each program is EXTREMELY pixelated, unwieldy, jitters WAY TOO MUCH, has way too much post-correction, and is just plain uncontrollable. The only way I've found to manage it is to crank the stabilization to a very high setting, but then I lose the ability to accurately draw curves and whatnot.
It's gotten to the point where I've recently opted to just work with pencil, pen, and watercolor, because what you see here is ALL after spending hours of redrawing THE SAME line over and over again, simply because my computer just wants to act like this.
Anyways, you've given me more than enough advice, but if you have any in that area it'd be much appreciated. Thanks for listening to my sob-story. Should be getting an Ipad soon and all the hardship will be over.
