Traditional Comic Book Inking is a very specific tradition, with tools that are strange and unfamiliar to the inexperienced hand. Shawn has become well known for his precision based Brush inking, some calling him "The Surgeon." In this lesson, Shawn will walk you through several exercises for several different traditional inking tools. These are simple exercises that anyone can perform and will help all of you gain control of these traditional tools, while teaching you how, when, and why to put them to use. Shawn's "Tool Talk" chapter of this episode is a deep dive into all manner of nibs and brushes, all of which are demonstrated in the lessons and exercises he demonstrates.
