Alacrity Going lineless by JetEffects Alacrity Going lineless by JetEffects
This is just to show what direction the drawing was going before i put the lines back in. I felt it lacked life, so switched the lines back in. But now that i look at it. It's not bad. For my next one i might go completely lineless.

I remember struggling with this same problem for a good half a year until was finally able to let go of my lines when coloring. Considering your style, it looks like a selective 'disappearing' line would suit you well, where you'll probably find it in your shadow areas and where elements need division, but then let it fade out when you hit your highlights. Edges may be extremely hard in these areas to compensate the loss of line. As a rule, you don't need to get rid of your lines, but as an artist that forever pushes their own boundaries, it sure is fun to see what happens. XD Art seems to have the best results when you throw yourself into those uncomfortable zones and come back with something new learned - if you can survive the frustration first.

The lines on the outside help accent the shape, but the internal detail lines pull it back to the sketch version. It really is beautiful.

Your rendering more than makes up for the lack of lines, I think... But lines do have a way of adding their own spin on the details.

Either way.. I love both versions of this scene!

Excellent work! :D

oh this is cool, so this is what you meant earlier - does give the piece a different flavour.
I think you'll be scaring other colourists off ^^;

Also sweet to see this pic in original orientation, thanks :}
