So I'm back into this. This is actually the most complex thing thing I've ever inked, I think. Despite the large size of the drawing, which is over sixteen inches wide, the characters are still relatively small for something I normally use a brush on. So the going is slow. I have quite a few drawings to ink before the next book is ready to go to print, so I'll be inking ever morning and evening that I have free from now on.

As a side note, that Baja earthquake made its way to Southern California while I was inking Girl #1's thigh. I was so focused on keeping a smooth line, and the earthquake built so gradually, that I actually thought there might be something wrong with my new glasses. Everything felt like it was swaying, and the paper seemed to be moving underneath my brush, but since I was so planted to my desk, I never realized what was really happening till I finished the line and lifted the brush up. I guess I just thought I was having a stroke or something. The line is probably the smoothest one on the drawing so far, go figure.

Bravo, getting smooth lines even in the midst of an earthquake. It's looking gorgeous also.

I was going to say, I think her thigh is perfect! Yeah I felt it too. I've never felt an earthquake (or tremors) before, living in AZ. I seriously thought the Apocalypse was coming! :fear:

Wow, what are you drawing this big but clear line with?
JoeRandel Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2010
I have a question. How do you keep a good steady interest in your piece?

I have a habit of rushing though the "boring" or not as exciting parts of a picture. I also start to rush as I get close to the end and the results really show.

Do you have any advice?
