Inking Fast

January 15, 2018

True story, if you’re going to ink with energy, it’s good to ink fast. In my view the reason for doing pencils before inks is so one can ink faster. Once a drawing is penciled, you don’t have to think about nailing proportions, but you can think about putting energy into the final line of your drawing.

Look at the ink sketch of Earthworm Jim below… see how his front leg has a line that breaks up? You can only do that with inks if the brush is running low on black or gotta draw the line so fast that the ink can’t flow out fast enough. The broken line creates speed, which is useful when your character is running.

    interesting that some lines are tight and others are quick and loose, but it works. I tend to draw too slow, but try to rush myself.
