Mass Effect Hide And Seek Page 5 Preview by JulianneKnight Mass Effect Hide And Seek Page 5 Preview by JulianneKnight
So I was hoping to have page 5 colored and up today, but I'm not even done inking yet. I messed up and had to start over but in the process found an inking technique that looks a lot better, but is so much slower. 

And so I'm putting up one small panel, which isn't even done. Have a picture of Wrex.

Great work, lineart is really clean, lines varied, and I love the details!

My work is again slowed by starting over with new techniques. Sound familiar?

I found a new way to ink that makes the edges of my lines smoother (less pixely,) but the lines themselves don't smooth themselves out as they did the old way so now I have to zoom way in to keep my lines from being all wobbly.

Yeah, and I experimented a lot and I am never satisfied anyway :(

What's the new technique? It's looking really great. I tried digitally inking few times, but usually I lost my patience and decided to do all the inking traditionally.

Well, not much of a technique, I guess. More of just a change of tools. I was using Manga Studio to ink before, using the ink tool. The ink tool correlated to actual pen sizes (example: pt0.3) and the program automatically smoothed out the curve of my lines for me. However, the edges of the lines were pixelated. For this, I'm using Photoshop's paintbrush tool, which, even on maximum hardness, makes lines with smoother edges. However, the brush sizes are measured by pixels and the lines more faithfully follow my awkward strokes on a tablet making the curve of my lines rather jagged. Not sure how much I like this trade-off.

So... I'm pretty sure I'm actually doing this the hard way.
