I'd say stay away from inking the artists work until you get a real handle on inking. Better to be behind than to botch it all up.
He's inking the title, I am just practicing in CASE we get to the point where I need to throw down some inkies!Originally Posted by Justice41
I was looking for critiques and how to get better...
Good luck with the "inkies".
thanks...Originally Posted by Morgan Welborn
Why is no one willing to comment on the work? I admitted it was bad. I know it's bad... but I want to know WHY and what I can do to improve.
Isn't that sort of the point here?
There are some people on here who would take the time to tell you everything you want to know about inking and give you helpful tips, you just have to be patient.
Why the heck is Noel starting challenges in the Proving Ground with no internet access?
About the inking, the main problem is that the ultimate goal of an inker is to actually improve upon the pencils. You have not done this.
I don't know what kind of tips you're looking for really. As a novice, the best thing you can do is just practice a lot, and once you've done that, then practice a lot more.
Money can't buy you happiness, but it will pay for the search.
Well I would have given a formal critique but looks like I was a little late in getting here. Just a word of advise though...no matter how bad you think something is, don't take it down. Leave it up so others can have a point of reference to compare your progress. Even if it's slow progress we can see that it's better than your last...and the one before that. Inking is a confidence game mostly. Know your line and be confident in making the line on the page. If you don;t hit the pencil mark just right, it's ok...it happens all the time. But the most important thing to remember is an inker IS there to pollish the pencil art and make it pop. I'm still learning tricks. Practice drawing lines with all different types of tools. Nibs, brushes, brush pens, (I'll even say this) Micron pens, Zig pens...all sorts of junk...if your inking was bad it's probably due to the fact that you're not use to the tools or they felt awkward to you. Find what works in your hand and stick to it...when you get really comfortable with that then go to some other tool...just to give yourself some room to grow artistically. Different tools create a different line (obviously) and sometimes you'll need THAT line that your "comfort tool" doesn't know how to ink. So practice laying down lines with a variety of instruments then when you find one you like...ink a face, then a background, then a panel...then a page. Post everything you ink and leave it up. If you're serious about getting better and not embarrassing the penciler. Just my .02.
