Just trying out inking lineart on a proto page, might be a bit messier than usual

I normally use pen paths to ink but I think its too time consuming to do comic pages that way

Are you publishing this somewhere? AM I MISSING IT? 8CC (? 

Keep up the great work ^^ I've started promoting your artwork in one of the biggest Spaniard Brony community forums - always linking back to your page, of course! :3

I just found out some new Adobe Illustrator features.  Auto trace, smooth tool, and tapering. The pen tool in Illustrator smoothes out easier.

I ink in Illustrator then color it in photoshop. It is fast if you know the hot keys.


Hope this helps. 

By the way your prolog is executed very well! :D

This is looking great!  Thanks for the preview, bud!

On another note, a few questions:

1) What art program do use for this, and your other art?
2) What the heck are pen paths?
3) What do you use, paper-wise, to draw these on?  Blue Line?
4) What kind of pens, pencils; etc.; do you use for your art/comic pages; etc.

I think that's it.

And sorry if I'm being so nosey, but I'm fixin' to start work on a comic of my own, and I want to start off on the right hoof.  Foot.  Whichever.

I draw straight into Photoshop CS6 on a Samsung Slate 7. Pen tool in PS is for making shapes or paths which can be stroked with brush settings or filled

:iconwhitewolfstormrunner:
WhitewolfStormrunner Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah, I see.

Photoshop CS6, huh?  Ouch.  That's kinda expensive, isn't it?

And a Samsung Slate 7?  Cool.  I'm thinking about getting an HP Convertible laptop/Tablet, but I don't know if it'll be as good as that.  (Hopefully, it will.  Hopefully)  Is the Slate 7 very expensive?  I just want something that I can add art software to as needed, that won't give me a lot of trouble doing it, or will allow that kinda thing.

And I see.  Thanks for explaining that to me.  I appreciate it.

And does this mean that you're going to continue the New Royal Guard comic that you started with the NRG Prologue?  I sure hope so, as I loved that.  

(Still do, as far as that goes.;))

If you don't need a Wacom digitizer for pressure sensitivity I think you'll have much more choices than I did. There's not a lot of slates/convertibles with pressure and they get pretty pricey

Hmmm, okay.

I don't know if the HP that I have my eye on on ebay has that, or not.  I think I need to check HP's website to find out for sure, though.

I know that a Lenovo convertible laptop that I looked at on Newegg said in the ad for it that it had Wacom drivers installed on it, but that they weren't up-to-date, or active, or something.  SO I don't know if all convertible laptops like that have Wacom drivers on them, or not, but if that's what I'm getting, I certainly need to find out, huh?

Yeah, I hear ya there!  I checked some out at the Sam's Club here in Wentzville, and I think the cheapest one that I found like what I'd need was like $700.00-$800.00.  Which was just a bit more than I actually would like to pay.

So, as you can guess, I'm still looking.

if you have the anatomy down and you can do smooth lines, i dont see why you would use "paths" at all.

The smooth lines he gets ARE from the paths. The original sketches are underneath the inking.

anzul Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013  Student General Artist
ah... should have worded that better.
i meant to say that using paths is silly and uneficient, considering ha can do such smooth lines by himself.

by the by, nice pics whit the P&S style, saw them on derpibooru a while ago.

Yeah, I'm hoping that this will be the continuation of what happened in the Prologue, and  what happened that led up to the events in that.

Just have to wait and see, I guess............

Looks like the same result as the pen at this resolution. Presumably you're using the brush, so if you colour like this you might run into that issue where either side of the line has a 'white' edge. I'd love to know if you have a way of getting around that.

Set the ink layer to multiply if it's not transparent and color under that layer. If you're talking about the coloring method with the magic wand, you can select the area and modify the selection in the menu drop-down to include Z number of pixels beyond the original selection and BAM gone white space

Yeah vectors can be quite time consuming, though the appearance of quality is always awesome.
HOWEVER, one can definitely appreciate hand drawn over the latter too and sometimes more-so. =)

Whatever you like doing best is what you should stick with. 

If it's the inking and less time, go for it. 
If it's pen paths and a little bit longer, go for it. 

Your art if for yourself, not us, so it really is all about you here. Not getting things out faster to please us.
