October 1st, 2023 Inking Challenge #Dutchtober #arttrober2023 In this video, I am working on a weakness of mine, traditional inking. I am a digital inker but inking digital, you have the ability to undo, add or remove another layer, and using brushes with texture. So I pre-drew many images on 7×10 sketch pages to be prepared for this challenge. The first one up is from Artgerms Arttrober 2023 list, Suletta Mercury from Gundam Witches of Mercury series. It is a fun series I enjoyed with my daughter and loved the character. I use the following pens to ink this image like Pigma Micron and Pigma Micron pen set, Ohuhu skin tone markers, and Canson Mixed media 7×10 sketchbook.

My video tutorial on how to flat in Photoshop road to 500 subscribers in Youtube. I go through my process on how to setup a page using my “sketch lift” action (available to my Patrons on Patreon). My settings in Photoshop. One of the newest tools I use to speed up my Process is the NEO Tourbox setup for both Photoshop and Clip Studio Paint. (If you are interested, I can do a video showing that setup. Please let me know.)

I am working on a series of tutorials that capture some of the lessons I have learned as a self-taught illustrator. I am grateful for all the artists whom I have learned from and would love to help you with a few tips and tricks of my own.

Here are some tutorials I found helpful in creating a comic book using Clip Studio Paint and other great artist whom I learned Photoshop from.
