Inking Crisis #6 - Part 2

[Sandra]

Before I start inks, I always make a copy of the pencils for reference. Soft leads will fade very quickly and it's usually very difficult to read.

I like to ink faces first so the character's expression is as true to the pencils as possible. After that, I'm all over the page. I don't have any specific order or direction in which I'll ink. On Jim, I like to use brush on most of it including backgrounds. Before I fill in the large black areas, I will use a quill and mark all the scratch marks, folds in clothing, or anything else that I want to come back and pop out with white at the end.

TO BE CONTINUED IN AN HOUR...

Just dropping by to say it looks brilliantly sublime so far. There's really nothing more I can say. :D

there's something that I don't understand, why do you begin with black area, are you filling them with a brush ?

What tip do you typically like to use when you use crow quill?
