Alright , here is the process for my Katana Shoujo piece Feel free to ask questions I'll try my best to answer.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION - What did you do to the outline? : I merged the outline and flat color layer together. From there on , I paint over and over make things smoother (It can be done in another layer if you are not confident) Keep refining and take your time. Patience is the key , like ALWAYS.

Absolutely beautiful The movement in the hair is lovely, as well as the lighting which makes it look very peaceful. I hope to someday be as brilliant as you are with digital painting, you are a truly fantastic artist.
