Ciao the ever Crazy-Lazy Founder,

Hello, I know there plenty of groups there but I have yet to find one dedicated solely to inking on both digital and traditional way.

I believe as the founder of this group that a good line work enhance the illustration. I found myself amazed by good ink work, as I would also want to improve my own skill regarding inking.  I am myself is not yet good and still learning, but I hope this group can help us grow to become better at inking and drawing in general.

So let us work together to learn and improve our skill in inking.

Without further ado the group rules (in a nutshell)

Thanks for adding me, I tried my hand at inking and coloring with Gimp 2.6, but to me it doesn't look good. Hopefully I can learn from the pros, I have Clip Studio Paint with a Wacom Tablet. Hug

I honestly don't know! Somehow I was made a moderator, but I really don''t know anything about the group. Perhaps you could contact one of the other mods, I am sure they would know more about this than I do!
 There is a gallery of digital inking, but I don't know how recently it was updated. : digitrad-inking.deviantart.com…
 I would like to learn more about digital inking also!
