Digital Inking-who are the masters?
I've been following along in the Ink 2.0 learnalong that @Braden-Hallett has been facilitating (wonderfully). I've only posted..a couple of times.
I do all of my work in Procreate on the iPad. <<rebel>>
I try to emulate traditional inking--but are there any "masters" out there producing really interesting digitally inked pieces? Maybe evening pushing the medium in ways that really exploit the possibilities with digital ink?
@Susan-Marks I'm rather curious about what people say, too

@Susan-Marks since i've taught procreate for about 3 years now ive been curious how it can replicate the new inking skills and style ive gained. I found a few very nice digital inking brushes for procreate and use the guache brush (I spell that right?) for ink washes. I can send you those brushes if you'd like.
but the master for style of digital inking on here i'd say is @Braden-Hallett (but im bias)
@Aleksey You've taught Procreate for 3 years??? (best kept secret). @Braden-Hallett --do you ink digitally? I thought from your posts in the ink 2.0 group--that was all traditional. If I am wrong--I am super-impressed.

David Lafuente comes to mind as someone who has really well-drawn and clean digital inks.

I'm tryin' not to be self-deprecating these days but LOL :smiling_face_with_open_mouth_closed_eyes:

It is all digital I am FAR too lazy for traditional.
@Braden-Hallett <<sound of jaw dropping to the floor>>
What brush(s) do you use?
And do you not allow yourself to "correct" any of the lines?
When I did Inktober last year--I disconnected the 2-finger-tap to erase in an effort to improve the accuracy, confidence and boldness of the line. It helped (a little).
<<sound of jaw dropping to the floor>>
When you say 'correct' the lines what do you mean? Erase and redraw, or manipulate the lines like you do with vector programs?
I use Corel painter. For inking I use a heavily modified custom brush (I think it used to be an 'artist oils detail brush) with a custom paper texture. For sketching/shading/painting and pretty much everything else I use the 'real tilt' pencils. And that's about it!
@Braden-Hallett yes, by “correct” I mean either erase and redraw or touch the line up itself. You use higher powered programs than I do- something for me to shoot for in the future.
