Can I link images here?  Let's find out.

Exhibit a - Bane of My Existence:…

The above exhibit is why my webcomic died a terrible, agonizing, and painful death.  Inking.  Inking before scanning was hardly worth the effort.  Look at those lines in the middle!  They're hideous!  The lines on the right?  Inking after scanning, with a frikkin' intuos no less.  Should have been the ideal solution.  But no, for some reason I go to draw with the tablet and my pen doesn't go where my hand is telling it to.  This ain't no software problem.  The lines on the left are actually just the line tool, but consider them representing vector lines in general.  Visualize an obscene gesture in their general direction.  SLOW.  I don't have the patience to create, adjust, curve, add nodes, break apart, convert to line, convert to curve, etc. for every frikkin' line I draw.  Holy cow.  HATE.

Anyway.  The whole point of this rant was that as I was coloring "Djiani Falling" I kept noticing how _bad_ the lines looked.  Machall Ian McConville, how do you do it?  How?!  Do you go over every line in ps?  Am I just a total wimp?

Have gone back to freehand wacom inking in photoshop.  Man, it sucks.  But maybe if I practice enough....
