Tinkerbell Inked - Ebas by LahmiaRaven Tinkerbell Inked - Ebas by LahmiaRaven
I couldn't help myself, I saw the pencils for this one on Erics website and I had to ink it!

This is the cover for issue #2 of Neverland published by Zenescope. Tinkerbell in all her sexy glory! Eric did a great job with her.

The hardest part of the whole piece for me was her wings, they took me forever!! Totally paid off in the end though, I'm thoroughly happy with this one and I hope you guys like it too!

Penciller: :iconebas: Eric Basaldua
Inker: Myself

Sure just ask the penciller too and give credit where it's due. Let me know when it's finished

You're a clean inker -- that's important. However your holding lines are lacking the necessary lineweights to carry the curves from the pencils into the inks, and your detail lines are the same weight as your holding lines -- making it feel entirely flat. What tools are you using?

Mostly a 2.0 Rapidograph pen

That would be why :) Have you ever practiced inking with a crow quill or a brush?

Yes, I've tried crow quills and I can't stand them, I end up flinging them across the room. And brushes, I can't trust entirely I guess

I didn't like the crow quill when I started out, had the same kinda frustration as you felt :) But you need to learn to use the tools the professionals use. I learned brush first, then moved to crow quill slowly until I learned both.

I started off with brushes but there's something about them that I don't like

That could be mostly the type of brush you're using -- there's a specific kind that we use for linework and some of us use a different size (I ink with a #2 but know inkers who use a #3, #4 etc). The important thing though is you need to stick with it until you get better with them -- just like we did. If you give up on those tools you won't learn.

I got those Windsor & Newton sable brushes ranging from #0 - #5 but I'm a bit wary of using them

This is one of my favorites of Tink and you did a great job. Would you mind if I took a shot at colouring her up?

Great work to my eye. Now, take that for what it's worth... I'm certainly no expert. Speaking of which, some great advice here, especially on turning the page, I had never thought of that, and I wonder if it might help me. :)

i like this alot, the upper lip could use a little bit more definition and shape and yeh to make the wings more gossamer and light a thicker outline on the body would look nice. apart from those two this is really good work.

I'll be honest, lass, I think the ink's are a bit heavy on this one, however despite that it reminds me a lot of the comic work done in the early days of Image, the inking was very much like this without being too bold.

Have you submitted any of these to comic companies lately because I would be shocked and disappointed if they were to all turn you down. I think the only thing you need now to truly get where you wanna be artistically is to be doing this as your job, all day every day etc.

You're a great inker, hun, the talent is there all it needs is refining.

Happy Easter x

Thanks hun but I think I'd rather practise it out a bit more and try to perfect my skills instead of diving in when I'm not ready to x

Hey that's all good love. Don't let it swell your melon but I think you have the gift already. But, I agree, you need to have the right mind to be doing it professionaly. That's why I keep mine as a hobby, if I were to strive to make my colourings better and do it pro then it'd no longer be fun, it'd be my job.

Just keep it up, because I love your work.

Really must do that Red Riding Hood soon, sorry for the delay.

Even if there are still some defects, your technique improves from day to day, it is impressive!
I hope that one day you will ink one of my drawings.

NICE and people are right, you use a brush or quill you will notice a huge difference in your inks, at least I did. Im now about 95% brush with the occasional micron for tech stuff ect. A good way to get used to a brush in the beginning is outline shadows that will be solid black in a piece and use the brush to fill them. As you fill the black area try to do strokes that way you can get used to it without goofing your piece.

Thanks for the advice :) I think I might actually buy some nice brushes, I can handle them better than quills!

I recommend winsor newton series 7 sable size #3 and 4 dont go smaller because they don't hold enough ink, I learned that the hardway.

i do understand...i turn my lightbox so many times when i am inking...i would say start trying to use a the quills a little more...the rapidios make it look a little flat as far as the linework goes.

lower lip doesnt work. Dunno if the problem is in the pencils or not, but its still an inkers responsibility to make it work.
I also think the out lines of her body should be a tad thicker as well, so that the wings will apear more gossamer or transparent, ans most especially more seperate from the body. as it stands the pick apears a little jumbled where things do not stand out from one another.
Not a single thing here is uncorrectable in a short and easy manor.

This is meant to be a Constructive criticism.
Hugz.
