I'm trying to achieve the quality of this art style. However I'm not a professional artist yet. Still practicing and have a long way to go.
Now I have made a rough sketch, outlined it, colored and removed the strokes. 2nd image is my poor drawings :)
My 1st question: Is it the right way to go with outlines since the referenced character has a flat art style feel to it?
2nd question what is the next step after removing the outline? So I thought picking up the eraser and reshaping the colors but that somehow seems to contradict the purpose of having outlines in the first place.. And wouldn't this be double work?
