Inking Blacks to Spot
Although this isn't the page posted below, it is inking of a page of finished pencilling. I'm trying to do something that terrifies me, but is suggested by most artists: inking the large patches of black before anything else.
I'm used to outlining, then shading, then filling the fields with a brush (or q-tip, I ain't gonna' front!) because the filling is kind of boring and easy. BUT most artists say to lay this down first, to see where it leads the eye on the page, and to really define the negative space onto the page.
This was taken from the new V magazine... a real disappointment, if you ask me! Anywhoo... here's to facing your fears!
