Here’s the live inking demo I did last Friday night on my Ustream channel, this week focusing on Line Weight Usage. I’m going to try to broadcast every Friday night, so if you’ve got a topic you’d like to see covered or a suggestion drop me a Tweet to @Tom_Parrish or email me using the link to the left!
A freebie for Wednesday - My textured inking brush. I often use this for grittier elements and things I’d usually use either a nib or a grease pencil/crayon for if I were working traditionally. Gives some interesting results, very responsive to pressure and tilt. Give it a whirl and see what you think :-) Drop me a Tweet or a comment if you enjoyed it or have suggestions and feel free to share it or retweet etc!
I’ve been busy finishing off outstanding comic pages and design work, but finally managed to add some colour to this character design. Definitely starting to give an idea of the sort of project this is gonna be — I stepped away from the entirely cell shaded look with this piece and added some grads to the cuts, as well as colour holding the line art. Starting to get there I think style wise!
