inking tutorial

Here is a link to a fantastic inking tutorial:

The guy that did it is Anton Emdin, who provides a couple of videos on his technique along with some written advice on his blog.  Videos!  What a great idea.  One of the best things about it is Emdin shows you how to warm up, which is something I’ve never really done.  Also, it was interesting to watch someone’s hand close up to see the SPEED at which quality inking should be done.  It seems that Emdin gets a much looser line than I do simply because he works a little quicker and perhaps a little bit of the stiffness of my finals is due to that.

A lot of the advice that I’ve read about inking is here.  If you are interested in learning how to ink using traditional tools (and you should be, it’s fun!) check it out.

Here’s one of the videos:

    Googling Scorchy Smith, I happened upon your inking tutorial, but was disappointed to learn that it was private, and thus inaccessible.

      Yeah, I guess he shut his blog down. Too bad. There was some interesting stuff on there, although he didn’t update that often. I’ll have to take it down.
