Inking with white to make things pop. Adding halos around figures or objects in the foreground to separate them from whatever is behind them.
- [Voiceover] Alright, things are really coming…together now.…We're in the home stretch and things are looking good.…Like I mentioned before, the inking process…so far has been a constant push and pull,…bringing things closer and pushing things further back…in an effort to bring the focal points…of each panel to the forefront.…Well, that process continues in this next step…where we're going to further make things pop.…I like to call it "Halos and Highlights."…And we'll get right into that, but first,…let's be sure to name that layer…of all of our positive and…negative space that we worked on previously.…
