This is really nice inking. What's your technique? How much do you manually control the thickness of the lines?

I know of 5 methods for vector inking:
- manually lay the anchors for each edge of the line
- Draw a path, expand appearance, tweak the path
- Draw a path, apply brush style
- Auto trace pencils :)
- Use pressure sensitive tablet (not sure if Illustrator supports that, but Inkscape does)

I find the first three overly tedious, the 4th requires good lines to begin with, and the last is beyond my current skills.

Do you have any tricks?

i use the first method.. I don't use brush style because they never fit in whole image....I don't use auto trace pencils because I think I spend too much time drawing perfect pencils. Illustrator support tablets...but I cannot keep drawing a clean line with tablet...

Thanks for replying.

This is what I created in about 30 minutes using a tablet with Inkscape - [link]

Someone more skilled with tablets could probably have done it in 5 minutes and made it look far better (inking is certainly an art in its own). Inkscape helps create a steady line by adding mass to the tool as you draw. I haven't seen a tool in Illustrator, so I know what you mean about creating clean lines with it.

yeah...I got it.. but the problem is my wacom.. it;s the graphire model, with less resolution, so it's really hard (at least to me) do a good and smooth line..:(

I've downloaded the inkscape, I might try some experience..;)

Thanks
