how can you clean those pencils so well? I did it a couple of time, when I did not want to ink over nice pencils, but it was a pain in the ass!

Looks really good. I think there's a few little tell tale signs it's not been inked when looking at the colors but it's a good a job as i've seen. Your clean lines and style helps of course.

Thanks dude! Yeah...There is no replacing a great inker, but I think that its becoming less necessary as the techniques get better. I love ink as you know...For me some kinds of subject matter require ink, while others don't. There could be no 100 Bullets, Sin City, or any other book with heavy shadows without ink. Other stuff that's more light heart works with just pencils I think if its done right.

If you couldn't tell if it was inked or not then why is that disappointing? :) Shouldn't it be the final art that matters, not the process? I love inking as much as the next guy, but unfortunately its just not financial feasible in many cases these days...

I love to see this kind of insight! :D Thanks for sharing! Who and how do you clean pencils so well in Photoshop...-? I can do this to a certain extent, but this looks amazing, almost like it was really inked! :)

Thanks! Mark Roslan cleans the pencils on all my Aspen work. He's been doing it a long time and has developed a really good technique. I don't know how he does it, but you're right, it looks like inks!

Now that's cool to see. I love seeing thumbnails and roughs and how the thought process goes into a final page. Very cool and thank you so much for sharing.

YES! I love this kind of stuff! I would be interested to see what it looks like before it is darkened and cleaned up in PS.

Glad you like! Then pencils I posted are not cleaned up, just darkened so they're easier to see on the screen.
