Straight Lines

A useful trick you should know is how to use the SHIFT key to help you to make straight lines. It works with the brush tool, the pencil tool, the ink tool, and the airbrush tool. All you have to do is select one of these tools, click somewhere on the drawing area, hold down the shift key, and then move the mouse to where you want the line to go to and then click the mouse. Experiment with this technique.
