Most of the time I draw a lineart, then paint the colors in like most people would if the drawing was in a lineless style.
 Examples:
  Okami: Her moment to shine by AsTheMoonWaxes Solarus by AsTheMoonWaxes
Angel of Winter by AsTheMoonWaxes

I'm wondering if this is a bad idea. I've noticed most people either do the whole image in a painting like style without any lineart, or they draw a lineart, fill the colors in a way that is solid through out, and cell shade it. If most people do it either one way and the other, perhaps that is the best thing to do instead of trying to do a little of both at the same time?

I do it the way I do because I'm trying to get a soft, gradient and blended look to the color and shading, but I like the look of lineart, and it helps me define the edges better.

I found a old account I had as a kid today (not linking), and one of the drawings I posted had over 200 favorites. It was done the second way I mentioned; a lineart, solid color, and cell shade. Not in the way I normally draw now, and I wonder if that is why it was more successful than any of my newer drawings.

Should I keep doing what I've been doing, or should I change it? I find my drawings often have too much of a messy look to them, and lack a clear enough pop.
Which of these is better?
This is a OC of mine.
I like the left one's wings better, but I prefer the clothing and skin of the right one. The right one's wings look too messy to me.
