  5. I just found this through Drawn and I just want to say "Thanks!".

    Just the few pages I looked through have been food for thought with my own work. Not sice Michael Cho's inking tutorials have I had so much help looking at my work and wanting to improve.

    So, in short, you rule and thanks for the effort you've put into helping us out.

  6. thanks everyone.

    chromasketch: I do. the very act of trying to match up with an earlier line makes it difficult. If I just trace the sketch, it will get worse, so I try to reinforce the big shapes and strengthen or add in straights and curves. I also sort of sculpt the line a bit more. every couple of lines I turn off the layer and check the sketch. If I made it worse, I erase it (happens a lot) if it's better, I move on to another part.

  8. Rad: I run into the same problem a lot as well.. from the sounds of it, the only solution is increased repetition.
