How do you obtain THIN line art on Photoshop CS4?? If you help your character can be the lab rat ;)

I have this thick line art (even though it's pressure sensitive) and it takes away from my art. :(
Maybe I'm working too zoomed in? B/c I use a size 4 brush D:
And I've heard about resizing the picture, but I'm not sure exactly what to do for that specifically. Please help! :heart:

:star: I will even use a character of yours to practice a quick sketch with if you do help me out ;)

If you use Paint Tool Sai, the Ink Pen tool at setting 1.0 on a roughly 1600x1150 canvas at 600% zoom is insanely helpful :) That's what I did for my lineart anyway, I dunno if these were the kinda lines you were looking for (only on the hair, I haven't linearted the rest yet) [link]

I always use a massive canvas to sketch and line, then I shrink the image down by half. That not only makes your lineart appear smoother but it also makes it thinner :D Also, using a thinner brush might help!

Think of resizing like drawing on a bigger piece of paper. Its easier to draw more details and smaller lines on a bigger paper then a smaller one. Then the resizing, you get a crisper line.

Did you want me to test a character of yours out to attempt for thinner lines?
