    Inking line weight exercises

    So I've recently gotten back into trying to learn inking again. One of the most consistent critiques that I get has to do with line weight variation. I was wondering if you all had any exercises that I could try to help me master line control?

    Also, in inking, what's a fairly average time to shoot for speed wise when doing a page or pinion? I feel that I'm moving way to slow.

    I'm interested in this also.

    Any advice from the masters out there?

    I don't have specific tutorials to share, but I think Loston created something in the past.

    I've been told this book is good, so check it out:

    Use these lines over and over to practice your control. Practice the strokes in different directions. One goes up and the other goes down. Go left to right in one set and right to left in another.

    Hopefully you got the newer version that combines both volumes into one book. That is pretty much the indispensable book on inking.
