Inking tip. by batlesbo Inking tip. by batlesbo
Just a small tip that can help out:

1st panel-Inking with lines of the same size, thin or thick, will make your image flat.

2nd panel- tracing your lines with various sizes (thin to thicker, thick to thinner) will make it much more dynamic!
Work with strokes, even if it means retracing all the lines. It might take twice as long, but it'll look three times better :)

Of course, some artists look for the flat lines, it can suit the mood they're looking for, or the storyline, ect. All depends on how you want it. But by making a drawing more dynamic, it will also make it more alive, and so, much more captivating for the eye.

Ranting over ;) Cheers lads!
Oh and these two gals Horny For You (moi)

I'm going to be honest here, i like the thin look better. However i think the best way would be something inbetween
though unfortunately i don't know how to draw it, without taking too much time. Like, if a horizontal and a vertical line meet [ ---|---] the corners would be thicker than the actual lines...hard to explain...

Oddly enough, in class the other day, we were doing blind contour drawings. I hate doing those, but the exercise works. My line quality is so much better.
