I wanted to try digital inking, this is the result :) 
It took ages but it was fun and I learnt loads :pc:

The downloadable RAR contains a PSD file with the inks on a transparent layer at 600dpi. Also within the RAR is a 600dpi JPG file.

Thanks to :iconrenatocamilo: for the amazing pencils  found here

And thanks again to :iconcomicteamup: for bringing so many like minded comic book artists together :headbang:

As always all comments good, bad and indifferent are welcome :thanks:

If you use this for flats or colours please link back to the artists mentioned above :highfive:

*To all the folks that :+fav: and/or added this to their collections*
Thank you so much for the support! I would love to thank you all personally but there isn't enough hours in the day! 
It means the world to me that this piece is being enjoyed by so many! :happybounce:


While doing the flats I notices some small errors so I have made some very small corrections of the ink layer. It is the same size and dpi as the original so if you are using it for a project and want to use this new ink layer it will replace the original perfectly.

I find it difficult to get a feel for inking something that I didn't draw myself.  What can happen is that parts look good, but the whole doesn't pull together.

Looking at your work I see that the parts are done well, but the 3DI of the subject matter is swallowed by elements of abstract design.  This happens when the black and white areas are homogenized, instead of when one is clearly subordinated to the other.

Here the composition divides into five or six areas where black and white are given in different proportion.  And yet because the ratio of black to white is so nearly 50%, all tend to blend. 

Blur your eyes, or view the picture from afar, or turn it upside down, or view it in a mirror (or all four!), then see whether or not the subject matter is easily discernible.  If not, it most likely points to a problem with the tonal scheme - with separation and blending - as I've described.  This is "the postage stamp test", called that because you view the pic at 1x1 or 1x2 - the size of a postage stamp.   It's a landscape painter's "trick" for gauging and consolidating values, which is what you have to start doing to take your work (pencils, charcoal, inks) to the next level.  Simplify- consolidate / separate - blend.

You're welcome.  Glad you take it in the right spirit.
Draw.  And when you ink someone's pencils, interpret them for yourself.
