About This Class

Digital Inking for Comics - Starting with the Head

b5fdc6ce

In this class, you will learn about the various ways that I implement style into my inking process.  Inking is more than just copying the sketch.  The inks should add clarity and propel the artwork off the page.  

You will learn why I choose certain lines as well as how to use line weight, create smooth lines, add texture with various rendering effects, and when to use angled vs. smooth curves.

I am using Clip Studio Paint in this series of lessons but you can use whichever software you prefer.  This is mainly about the digital inking process.

You also get the sketch to work along with.  Feel free to share the work and I will give you any feedback that I can.

Thank you for considering my lessons and good luck with your comic art!
