Mermaid Sketches by CaptainChants Mermaid Sketches by CaptainChants
Two sketches. Testing out my traditional inking on one of them.... It's reaaaally poo!

Trying to figure out a way to ink but not really liking any of it :s If any of you have any tips on inking (digitally) send em my ways!

Also, the dastardly :iconanonimusone: is doing his digital ink magic on the other mermaid.

Looking forward to seeing the result ^^

Real inks are so bloody hard for a nervous nelly like me, these are pretty sweet though. Lovely sketches!

I still have a pretty good inking set-up in Illustrator if you need it chants btw.

Really awesome sketches!!

A program I've been using for digital inking is Paint Tool SAI for windows. I went through a phase of trying out ALOT of programs for digital inking and really like the lines it produces. Also, has a free (30 day?) trial.

The main feature I like in the program is the stability, which keeps your lines smooth even though your hand might wabble here and there. I can get smooth lines on paper (traditionally) but when it comes to the tablet idk what happens.

Cheers!!

Argh! Is it Windows only? (I'm a mac ^^ )

I think the thing I've come closest to liking is Illustrator, but I've not been very happy with the results recently. I probably just need more practice with the inking but it's finding something I like. Gosh!

Hah!! I'm terrible with keeping lines straight, shaky hands : (

From what I've seen it's windows only sadly. :( Good luck on your quest to finding a program that works for you! Highfive for shaky hands! :highfive:
