The Art of Comic Book Inking

It flowed well just looked flat. I said above how I get picky with how my Higgins Black Magic Ink sits on the paper, especially when doing large areas of black.

Well, with this paper I get what I want. The black is black enough but I can also see the brush strokes. I like that. The Strathmore also works in my printer. As mentioned above I use a Brother CW that can print at 11x I print my blue line pencils straight onto the board which saves me the time of having to lightbox my layouts. I can also print out outlined typography if I want to included typography in my layout so all I have to do is ink it up.

I have a template for all my pages and draw my digital layouts on it then print to the board.

It pencils decently and it inks decently. Blue Line has been the go to board for many years as I think they were one of the first companies to make a comic paper the public can download. Most artists started out drawing on Blue Line Art Boards. They also usually have a pretty sizeable product line.

The pages I have done on thier paper however do tend to seem to yellow pretty fast. Share your thoughts with other customers. Write a customer review.

Just an interesting aside: The content has been covered by other reviewers, so I'll limit my review to the instructional value of this book.

Cutting to the chase, this is an excellent book for learning how to ink traditionally, with a brush and maybe some pens.

It has two sections: The practice section is the second half of the book and this is a goldmine of tips from established inkers.

The way the second-half of the book works is as follows: By flipping back and forth between the penciled drawing and the different ways of inking it and reading the commentary! Maybe you won't be able to ink like the stars, but you'll at least be able to better appreciate and comment on inking.

So, why not five stars? To be a comprehensive book on inking comics, there needs to be a chapter on inking digitally or on how to adapt these "manual" techniques to "digital" tools like Photoshop or Illustrator. You can probably figure out how to do this on your own, but it would be nice to have a chapter on this.

First off, I would recommend having a basic knowledge of inking and drawing prior to picking up this book.

Knowledge of comics is helpful too! I am predominantly a pencil artist, however for the greater part of the past decade I have "traced" my pencils in ink. My though process did not include any way to make my illustration look better.

Within the first 25 pages of this book, I had several enlightened "Why did I not think of this before!? I have read through the book a few times now and have gotten around to practicing some different styles I might update this post later on with examples. For what it's worth, giving me a better idea how to make my illustrations better and more professional looking far exceeded the price of admission.

A few notes if you had read the other reviews This book contains several blue-line art boards from professional artists. Keep them in the book if possible, because it would ruin the binding without them.

That is my only concern with the book. I would have preferred a "folder" style, meaning the book can be removed with the pages secured on a separate spine. Many reviewers commented on the authors use of brushes.

The author is not a dinosaur by any means, but that is his preferred style of inking. A good artist learns to adapt depending on the materials and what they have to draw. Also, as the author states himself in the foreword, it "doesn't mean [he] is saying that [his style] is the only way to ink".

This volume contains some valuable information about the art of inking over pencil drawings, for the comic books, however, misses some key issues.

The Art Of Comic-Book Inking 2nd Edition

More filters. Sort order. Not the in depth approach of comic book inking I expected. Rather similar to DC's "Guide to inking Comics" but differentiated by the several examples by professional inkers - which also varied a lot in quality. Jan 19, Imran rated it really liked it Shelves: If you're new too inking, I would definitely recommend this book as it will fill you in on the basics of tools and techniques.

It goes over basic concepts but not in anywhere near as much depth and detail as 'DC Comics Guide to Inking'.

Various inkers discuss their approach to their inked version of the same pencils the pencils being a courtesy of Steve Rude.

This section in particular is great for inkers of all skill level, from hobbyist to professionals. In addition, there's also a bristol-board blue pencil sample at the end of the book by none other than Steve Rude, which is great as well for practice and comparison.

While the former this book is great for practical advice and getting started the latter is great of understanding theory in depth.

Jul 28, LemmiSchmoeker rated it it was amazing. An intriguing look at comic-book inking techniques. After an introduction into the art itself that's probably better suited as a quick refresher for established artists who haven't been inking in a while , the main part of the book presents four pencil pages by Steve Rude, each followed by inks done by Martin and some guest artists who describe what they did and how they did it.

This part allows an insight that's never before been achieved by any similar book on the market. To round it off, the An intriguing look at comic-book inking techniques.

To round it off, the back contains one of the pencil pages in blue on original-art-size Bristol board for the aspiring inker to try his or her own luck.

Apr 24, Tripleguess rated it liked it. I've had this book for years and never looked at it. Finally, a few days ago, I pulled it out because I was weeding my bookshelf hard and didn't want to keep anything I wasn't truly going to use. After looking through the artwork, I decided I did not want my drawings to go in this direction.

To me, the style looks corny and harsh and the comics shown look noisy and cluttered. Perhaps because I've become used to the clean, beautiful look of high-quality manga, I do not like the art in this book I've had this book for years and never looked at it.
