Any videos, books, sites, infographics, etc. that deal with achieving smooth, crisp (and/or confident and bold) line work digitally, whether sketching or creating a finished work?
Not just clean "inked" lines, but also lines that may not necessarily be super crisp, but have a sense of confidence and spontaneity (I realize that probably 95% of this is practice, but I'm also curious if there is anything else I might be overlooking, like software or brush settings or whatnot.)
Particularly jelly of some of the results of Dan Kim's Drawstream (at times it looks like he does very little under drawing and just goes at it):

I just started a month-ish ago and tried to sculpt this "women" and needless to say, it is bad and doesnt look like a women. I realized that I put the eyes askew and they may be to far apart. The humanness is obviously wrong. I 'know' it is wrong but i cant tell why. The eyes arent exactly right and the ears are bad. Even then though, it doesnt look like a female at all. What are the qualities that are supposed to look like a women? High cheek bones, fuller face more curves and less harsh lines. Did i make the chin line masculine and too square? Even when looking at a good example i am having difficulty. I know i need more practice, but i dont want to keep practicing blindly and wrong. If any of you sculpt, did you start with using calipers or some measuring tool to make sure you put everything in the right place and proportion until you could get the feel for it? I want it to actually look human. I'm not certain it's improved significantly at since i started. I am trying to understand the basics /ic/
