Thank you! ^_^
Heh, why would I take your comment the wrong way?

Same here. I love a really well inked piece. People can color all they want, but it takes a little extra oomph to create well done inks ( I bow to the awesomeness that is Sandra Hope and her beautiful inking style ).

Actually, a 2 ounce container of Speedball Super Black India Ink only roughly costs between $3 - $5, depending on where you go. Michaels Arts and Crafts usually has them for a cheap price. It's the ink I swear by for my brush inks. You just REALLY have to stir the hell out of it when you first get it and let it sit open without the cap on for about an hour. It tends to be a bit thin when you first buy it, so you have to let it thicken.

Lack of skill? You really show promise in your pencils! Just need to work on line weights and you should be alright. No putting yourself down here! ;b I don't allow it!

Learning how to ink with a brush DOES take a lot of practice, but I think in the end, it's worth it. If you want to practice, there is a great book set out by Dark Horse Comics, called, "The Art of Comic Book Inking." In the back of both books, Dark Horse has provided a few copies of penciled pages from their own publications, by various artists, in blue line format you to practice your inking on. I THINK the second book even has a page or two by Adam Warren!

Those two books are an inkers Bible!

Danke danke! ^_^

I had a LOT of fun inking Anthony's pencils! I mean if you check out his other penciled works, you can see how clean they are, and how much he understands varying line weights and how to use them properly.

It made for some fun inking time!
