After what seems like an eternity, i dug out my pens and actually did some traditionally inking on a piece. I have to admit that it didn't seem that bad. My previous experience with inking had always been painful, but this time the results were satisfactory.
However, when i scanned it in, it turned out to be a great disappointment. Y'see, when scanned, even though at a ridiculously high res, the lines were rough and even pixellated. I miss Adobe Streamline T_T, it made digital inking (or "dinking") so much easier.
So i either have to get me another copy or do the dinking in photoshop/manga studio. why can't manga studio have auto trace?
