How to avoid white artifacts in illustrator?


#1

I’ve created these illustrations using brush and colored it with bucket, added shadows with cutter.

Problem is white artifacts showing between colors and line work. I’ve read about anti-aliasing, but toggling checkbox would make lines jagged but fix white artifacts or vice versa - in neither state it was pleasing to the eye.
