Beware! Some of these pics are rather large because I want you to see all the details. These are the final pics of the process for the Spider Pimp comic I just posted over at Chronic Malpractice.
This has inadvertently turned into a process blog for my comics, which is fine. I like seeing this sort of thing on other blogs, so why not do what I love seeing?
In the fourth image I’ve circled the nib that did the lettering and line inking. I love that nib. It’s a Hunt 512, I believe and it’s pretty great for everything. I have 3 of them for some reason. I had to pick up a wrist brace this week due to the mouse-use at my job tearing me apart. I finished the last two panels with it on and I think it shows. It did force me to use more of my shoulder to ink, which it isn’t used to yet.
The last image shows AAALLLL of my nibs and nib holders. I’ve yet to use all the nibs on a project, but I’ve messed around with them. That shakespeare one is pretty fun, and the index-finger nibs are super fun.
If you look close you can see all the test scribbles underneath the comic after each dip into the ink.
Am I being arrogant with this? I worry about that. I don’t want to be arrogant.
