Join Ben Bishop for an in-depth discussion in this video Inking the good guy's face, part of Drawing Good and Evil Comic Book Characters.
- Now onto the good guy.…Using the same brush I was using before,…that Rough Inking 2 brush, and I'm going to repeat…a lot of the same steps, turning this layer down…so I can see the new stuff,…make a new layer, and get to work.…We're going to start with the face.…Again, we're just trying to pick out…the lines we like in here and really clean them up…and make them nice and slick.…Pressure sensitivity comes in handy when you're working…in tight areas like this. Eyebrows--…You can lift up that brush to get the nice, fine point.…
Press down harder to get a thicker line.…Love these brushes.…He does not look impressed.…He's very serious.…So we're going to try and keep our design themes and…our design sensibilities and all that in check,…want to keep it in mind the whole time, remember we're doing…more rounded features anywhere we can.…And when you look at him, all said and done,…it'll show off your intentions, and that it was…all purposeful, and he'll really contrast…with our sharp, evil-looking bad guy.…
Got some headgear on him here that I'm just making up.…
