I find it really relaxing when I watch illustrators and cartoonists ink their work. I thought it would be cool to show some of my inking process as well. This inked skull drawing is split up into four different three minute videos. This is the first one. Enjoy!
Digitally completing a few blue pencil roughs. Manga Studio is great for this sort of work. I plan to ink these pages by hand, but completing the layout work on the computer has helped my process a lot.
I’ve been trying to focus more on backgrounds and compositions. Recently I’ve gone back to my experience as a t-shirt designer and incorporating t-shirt graphical elements into my drawings. A good example of this is the circular background you see in the above image.
