Traditional Inking Tutorial by Napalm-Otaku Traditional Inking Tutorial by Napalm-Otaku
As I mentioned before, here's an update of my old... OLD tutorial on my inking method. xD Contrary to popular belief, I do NOT ink digitally! Yes, folks, it's all by hand.

Anyhoo, hope this'll be useful to someone. c': I at least had fun making it.

I am going to use your anatomy tutorial to help with my "Tutorials I think will help the beginner artist" very long title. Sorry about that. I might change it. But I am leaving this comment here so you know.

How did you figure the blue colored pencil trick? Was it a mistake or did you read it somewhere? Great tutorial!

Well actually, next time you can get yourself to the art store, I would recoment geetting a Col-erase, those generally erase the best, And A kneaded earased works very well on them 8]

A Col-erase sounds oddly specific to my purpose, I'll certainly check it out. : D

And I do have a kneaded eraser (or did... Digits likes to take 'em out of my bag to play with, then I never see them again. I assume he eats them.) but, for whatever reason, my white one seems to work a little better. :v Maybe it's the brand or somethin'.

in general the kneaded ones arent very good on graphite, but they do wonders with col-erase's and colored pencil C:

Oooh, this is a nice tutorial, I'm going to have to get decent inking pens, the one I've been trying to practice with is horrible. It's not even felt tip, so it's pretty bad XD
And I was never able to do that whole "move your arm, not your wrist" thing. It just feels weird to me |D

Well, honestly, the type of pen is a matter of preference, but I'm not too big on.. I'm guessing it's a ballpoint? .. 'Cuz they're sorta sharp and tend to tear the paper. >x And, yeah, it can be a little awkward to get used to. D:
