Digital Inking by AnthonyHolden Digital Inking by AnthonyHolden
Just goofing around. Trying some things out...

EDIT:

The caption reads

"I ran all day, to my heart's content--just ran and ran. All the while thinking to myself, 'this is freedom.'"

love this... scary to think what you would do with something like manga studio! :)

yeah, the inking capabilities are phenomenal. I would love to see you try it out. On top of the inking pros to it, the background tech stuff it's capable of as well are great. And the way it will create a page of panels... good stuffs. just about everything i've ever done is with MS.

It's NOT intuitive though. So I suggest grabbing a pdf of manga studio for dummies" as well...

Manga Studio 5, by the way, has some INCREDIBLE advances. So nows the time to give it a try... it's got a pencil engine on par with sketchbook pro, it's inking engine is even better and it has colors and layers on par with photoshop/sai/etc. it now has all those layers like "multiply" or whatever people do with photoshop... and the layout is now similar to photoshop only it's customizable.

check the vids on it! it's amazing...

no prob... they need to hire me the amount of people I recommend it to. Also, the paints mix on screen in a natural way (probably a way to set it so it doesnt but i have no clue), etc. I don't know if photoshop does that or not.

What program were you inking with? I like the line quality, looks very not digital.

Just regular old Photoshop. I bumped up the DPI to 600 and used the very basic Hard Round brush at a tiny size (6 or 7 pixels, maybe?). It feels a little like inking with a fixed-width technical pen. I like how it lets the line meander, highlighting the human error that is often masked by digital tools.

The half tones were created by using the lasso tool to select the area I wanted gray. Using the lasso tool felt surprisingly like using an x-acto knife to cut screentone. Then I filled the selected area with an arbitrary gray tone, and went to Filters>Pixelate>Color Halftone. I set the max radius to 8 and turned all the channels to 100. Then I lightened the layer to the level of gray I liked.

This was probably a way more detailed explanation than you were looking for. :)

Nah man, I enjoy technical explanations like that. The reason this digital inking struck me is because I tend to draw straight in ink with technical pens and I couldn't find a way to replicate that human error in the line quality digitally.

And I love any method of making half tone work digitally. I always run into moire effects when resizing though. Milono Giannis showed me how to use the color half tone filter a ways back but I was never sure what all the channel numbers really did when I changed them.

I wish to ask the (perhaps) obvious: What is the caption saying?
