I got asked about how my art looks so much different now. Well, I decided I needed to learn how to ink properly, and this is the result. I got my first introduction to inking while doing "Keeper," and I spent way too much time cleaning up and fixing things using Photoshop after the fact. You can see the difference by just comparing pretty much any Keeper panel with the last panel on this page. Except for some Photoshop fill-in work in heavily dark areas, I barely used that program at all on this panel. The major improvement came when I ventured to an art supply store and bought some fine line pens in different widths: 0.1mm, 0.3mm, and 0.5mm. You can see the results in the final panel here (compared to, say, panel 1 of the first page, which used only a single width pen for the lines). The detail work (e.g., the lines on Carlie's costume or Vicky's fishnets) was done with a 0.1mm pen, which was the first inking done after the pencils. Then I went over edges and borders with the 0.5mm thicker pen, as well as some smaller fill work. The 0.3mm pen then served to fill in gaps and darken smaller lines that otherwise were too faded. Finally, I used a fine point Sharpie for the thickest lines such as the bottom edge of the pen, and the edges of the fingers and hand in the foreground. The light shading was done with a different Sharpie that has almost run out of ink. Once everythig was done, I used a regular Sharpie to darken in the black parts of the various costumes, and Photoshop to take care of any final touch-ups. Anyway, I'm not in any way an expert in this now, but just doing this one comic has taught me a lot about the inking process.
