Big Art & Story Party Time – Episode 2
[private]This is part two of a special podcast crossover event with the fellas of Big Illustration Party Time. In Episode One we explored some of the more theoretical aspects of inking–the roles of form and structure, draftsmanship, as well as the role of the line itself and how we use them to communicate what we want in our illustrations and comics.
In this second half we explore the practical aspects of inking: what tools do we use and why, how tightly we ink, how inking differs between inking one’s own work and inking the work of another, and what our procedures are when inking a page of artwork.
We refer to several examples throughout our conversation, all of which can also be found in the show notes to Episode One, but here they are again for your convenience:
