Hey guys! Guess what? 8D
Remember those Chibi Profiles? (Not the bases, but the ones that look like this: [link]
Well as most of you know, I've been struggling with mine for a while now. (tablet disappearing occasionally and me being picky about line art OTL)
Thankfully, I no longer need to worry about the line art, because I found this: [link]
It's actually a thing of tool presets, but it's just as easy to use/install as a brush =u=
I'm specifically in love with the colored pencil (light) one. Because. like. OMG
I think the only way I can describe/show its awesomeness is with screen caps OAO

(The size brush I used beside Egypt was 7 pixels- on the "normal" paint brush)
It might not be exact, but it's pretty friggen close. I've downloaded, tried (and failed at using, sob) every popular pencil brush on dA and none of 'em looked anywhere near this nice XD
The only draw-back to it though is that I found myself constantly changing the way the brush is tilted to get the stroke I want. But I don't think doing that is even necessary, so I'm sure it'd look fine if you didn't c:
Another minor thing is that you need to have your eraser ready when you're drawing the face's details, 'cause it's hard to make it look nice even when you use a small brush XD But it's still pretty friggen awesome.
Anyway, if you have an APH OC, or you're thinking about making one, or you just wanna draw other characters in that style, or you just wanna use the presets for other projects- I TOTALLY recommend it!!
Bah, I need to learn how to type shorter things OTL I'm tired sob You guys should totally look at the stamps in this journal, just because : D
Got the line art done on the chibi profile. (not counting extra items like gators/palmetto trees/etc)
