Is there any way to maintain a bit of sketchyness while computer inking it? I would prefer (stylistically speaking) to keep some sketchyness in there.
I have taken an unused image of mine and run it through the hoops with different examples of post processing to see if I can achieve a more polished look.
(The image tags aren't working for me, whats up with that?)Fixed, see post below.[/edit]
The first image has a duplicate layer set to "multiply."
In the second image I tweaked first the contrast, then threshold, and then added a two pixel gaussian blur.
The third image is an example of my extreme sketchiness with only the contrast tweaked. Does this work styalistically?
The fourth image (a section of the impending Sunday edition) is an example of my full scale execution using the pen as a tool for everything from contour to shading (what can I say? I love ball-point).
This post handles the style of the lines that make up the comics. The shape of the characters is also in flux (as I practice more my ability to articulate form becomes better, so expect change in that department).
Thank you, Vulpeslibertas, I really appreciate the information (and, as you can tell, I'm alookin for more!).
