Subject title: I want to draw prettier round buildings in manga studio 5

It didnt go well last time.
I dont want to use ink, but when I draw the Scribbles on paper, they look better than the digital stuff.

Here are some ugly examples I drew without Scribbles and digital:

The Problem is, the lines dont look the way i want them to.
I have ideas, but the lines themselves are bad in my opinion.
(I hope I am easy to understand, I dont speak or write in english very often)

I think you could start with a layer that has the correct perspective (like what you have right now). Then make another layer over it and choose the lines you like or make them more individual.

Pretty much what Audi said.

First use perspective ruler and lay out your buildings using basic shapes by snapping them to the ruler.
It would appear u already know how to do it.
Then, on a new layer freehand over your layout. Without snapping to ruler unless you need a very long very straight line.

This will add line weight variety (even if not in a refined way Scott Robertson advices to use), which will give more live to your drawing.
If that alone won't yield satisfactory result, consider shading/crosshatching.

My dA, it is pretty bad.
