To continue showing my process, here is the sketch from my previous post, now inked. This inked drawing is a little different though from what I normally do. Traditionally, I use brush and ink to ink my drawings. I love using brush and ink, but it can be very time consuming, not to mention it uses up ink and wears on your brushes overtime. I've never been a fan of inking digitally, especially when comics artists I use to admire go digital and then their lines look mechanical and lose a lot of character. I think I did alright for my first try. I used the program, Manga Studio Debut 4, which supposedly was known for its sensitivity in inking. For anyone interested in inking digitally, I highly recommend this program. I got it only for a trial period, but will for sure buy it now.

It's obvious that my comic posts will be more like twice a year. At any rate, I'm anxious to post something new so here is the next section of the comic story, in pencil, and with no speech bubbles. I do like to make up my own sound effect text sometimes. This comic isn't so much of me being a nerd and writing a story of fantasy, but rather a medium in which I can practice drawing and inking while hopefully telling a fun story. More to come, sooner than later.
