Amazing inking... your lines and control are just wonderful to look at. And, I couldn't agree more that it's not tracing

Thanks for your tutorial.

Great tutorial. Maybe a good follow-up would be for someone to tackle the coloring and shading stage of production.

Great Tutorial! Did someone say Inking? Why...that was my gig for a whole year at a little startup that went into Album covers instead! To this day I hate and love inking (I was sick alot that year...sneezing+inking=bad art).

Steve Rude put out a handy BOOK not long ago on the subject. It's got some really great examples and explanations, as well as offering pages to ink. I always hated it when folks said all I did was trace, when you get right down to it, it's the inks that you see in the book more so than the pencils. Like Eliseu said, it's an art in itself and usually pencillers (especially beginners) shouldn't do it themselves.

DC also put out a BOOK.

Edit: Eliseu, when you send your pencils to an inker do they generally ink over the pencils directly or smack a piece of Vellum on top and ink on that? Dick Ayers suggested Vellum to me once (though in passing admittedly). I tried the Vellum thing and it never sat well with me. I like to go straight to the pencils. Just curious.

can you explain #7 again, just the measurements for bleed, trim and live.
thanks. what units are they? what is that in inches?
page is 11” X 17”.

Bleed: 6,875 X 10,497
Trim 6,625 X 10,187
Live 6,125 X 9,687

this is great.

I really enjoy your point of view on the whole topic. The fact that you recognize your strengths and weaknesses in the process reinforces how much a team effort it is. I forget that sometimes.

Thanks

I thought he was referring to pixels but 11" x 17" at 300 or 450dpi doesn't equal those numbers.
