...of me doing my next few pages traditionally?
I recently got these AMAZING Micron inks. They're seriously super awesome.
The only problem is that I SUCK at inking traditionally. I've been practicing but I still can't get it right ;__; I've been practicing with the thickest pen which is actually more of a brush. Mark Crilley once said that if you use a thin pen, all you get is thin lines. If you use a thick pen, you can get both thick and thin, or something like that. So I've been thinking that if I'm able to control it at the thickest, then it'll help me improve a ton and stuff y'know? But I get so scared of messing up and I get kind of frustrated ^^;;;
If anyone has any tips, it'd be greatly appreciated. It's much more fun, easier, and looks a lot better to do my shading and cross hatching and stuff with those pens, but when it comes to linearting it just doesn't work out...
I'm sure if I manage to get this inking thing down, you'll see a MAJOR improvement in pages. I rely on photoshop a lot. You have no idea how much I edit things in PS. I'm sure if I get more into traditional, I'll get better at being patient, steady, and a lot more natural. I sometimes doodle with pen in class, and the strokes and the whole composition looks really good. However, when I get to the mindset of a serious picture, I'm so worried that I'm going to mess up that my strokes aren't as free and flowing. You know what I mean?
Also I need to figure out what type of style I'm aiming for so I can be more consistent in my style when I draw chapter 2. I'm thinking that sometime after Volume 1., I'll go back and redo most of the pages in chapter 1 just for the sake of keeping the whole chapter consistent. Chapter 1 is so jumpy, especially since I've with school. I can't constantly make pages and stay in my groove. I have to go back to practicing soon.
That's when my stupid All-region audition my and violin recitals are over.
After that I'm going to try my best and hit the pages hard.
Sorry for my poor ability to explain things btw. XD; I'm not good with words, that's why I draw.
Thank you for reading<3 I hope you all are doing well. :)
