My inks over Mark Brooks for Young Avengers # 2 page 22.

One of my favorite pages in the series that I've inked.

Mark complimented me on the way I ink Iron Patriot (the Iron Man looking character). Aside from using a brush taper those lines and filling in the blacks, every other line was inked using templates and technical pens. Shifting the templates slightly to got those line, line weights. In the end, it'll give him more of a technical look. I usually do that with all machinery. It's more time consuming to ink, but gives it a more technical feel. Figures, on the other hand, I use either a brush or quill. Freehand. To give them a more organic feel.

Then there's that waffling cross hatch texture I like render in the backgrounds. Mark digs the way I do that, so I find every opportunity I can to apply it to his pencils.

You paint with ink or use a tablet? How do you get such clear black lines?

I use a brush, dip it in a bottle of ink, and ink (or 'paint') over the pencil drawings. The ink I use is waterproof india ink. It gives it a nice rich dark black. Darker than sharpie pens.

Thanks, Ryan!

I try to stay away from pancakes. Every now and then, a drop of ink will fall on the page and I get different sized pancakes. :D

HA!

I'm totally calling ink drops pancakes from now on.

Haha! That's what ink drops are... Pancakes! Before the ink dries, they even look like syrup on top! :D

beautiful inks Walden! I love your feathering, its thicker than most inkers (or seems to be to me?), but it looks fantastic!
WaldenWong's avatar
Thanks! Some are thick like the characters on the bottom panel. While others are thin, such as the characters in the first panel. I like to feather accordingly based on what the pencils calls for.
