I sometimes utilise the ligne claire technique though I am not a comic book artist or cartoon person. The fact is that I love details and I can go on and on drawing, and overdrawing till I have spoilt the piece!
If I recall, this technique is also known as the 'democracy of lines' but I could be wrong. I can't remember the reference now.
Often, I use a variant of the ligne claire technique as I do use a bit of hatching (but avoiding cross-hatching in general) with no crossing of lines. And I mix it with a bit of pointillism to create textures and an illusion of depth. Likewise, the non-crossing hatches.
It is a method amongst a few that I utilise though it is somewhat old-fashioned these days.
