Student guide chapter 13: Black Gold
Chapter 13 introduces inking with brush, another classic tool for inking comics.
Questions to ask yourself
- Can you identify a drawing made with ink and brush?
- How can you tell?
- What do you like or dislike about the brush drawing you've seen
Supplies you will need
- inking tools plus round watercolor brush for drawing,
- bristol board
- light box or tracing vellum
- penciling tools
Optional but recommended
Nothing extra this time
Finish pencils of your six-page story and begin inking
Perhaps the most important step in at this stage is to remember to ink your lettering before you ink any of your drawings, even if you are itching to start inking!
Pencils, with notes, for "Arid Ignition".
