I'll be honest with you here , I've been inking for over 20 years having worked mostly for AC Comics. You need to use a little more variation with your line weights . It looks like you're using the same weight with most of your characters regardless of where they are on the page. Are you using Digital Inking ? If so, try the old school method which is ink to paper . Works for me and is IMO, much more satisfying as far as the finished product is concerned. Digital can be a bitch to master IMO, and I'm not a fan of it at all.

Hi.. no.. I am inking the old fashion way... on paper, and doing some retouch with photoshop.. you know... I don't like very much the kind of inks where is veerry exagerated the thick line vs the thin line.. so I tried to do something that is more subtle... the lines are actually very diffrent... BUT.... you are not the first one to mention that they LOOK as if they were the same weight.. so I have been working on that.. seems I have to work even harder.. that is right now my main focus.. thanks for the tip..

You're on the right track, but Jeffo is right about the line weights. What pops out to me is the areas of feathering that pop out of the blacks...no thick to thin...all one line weight in those tiny lines. Are you using a brush or a hunt 102 pen? I was an editor at Image and have a track record of almost 30 years in comics...and while I inked only one book, I do know inking to a degree. Some of those lines actually look backwards. They should be thickest where they join the black area--then thin out the farther they get. But yeah, the closer a character is to the reader...the thicker his outline should be. It creates a sense of depth---which is really the inker's number 1 priority.

Thanks Kurt...three things I have to work on:

1.- Line weight
2.- Textures
3.- Feathering..

I am working on these things for my next samples... let's see how they turn out..

Thanks guys... this forum has been the place I have learned the most about inking... and I have only been inking for a few months.. less than a year, and from that first page I inked a few months ago, to these last few... I have seen a great deal of improvement... and it is thanks to all the comments on this forum..... so... thanks really I appreciate it.... now.. back to inking..
