How to Ink a Drawing





Introduction: How to Ink a Drawing

A while ago, I went to a cartooning class and learned a bunch of things about drawing, and one of my faves is inking. Inking is going over with markers (preferably sharpie) in a special way. My teacher told us not to call it tracing, because it would offend inkers everywhere. :)
But that's pretty much what it is. So let's do it!!!

Step 1: What You Need

- a piece of paper

- a pencil

- a regular sharpie and a thin sharpie pen
(Or just a black marker)

Step 2: Let's Get Doodling!!

Start drawing! But don't put too much detail like shade. And anything that should be colored black leave blank. You will fill it in soon

Step 3: Inking

Now if you have a sharpie trace over every thing in the skinny sharpie and in regular sharpie color in every black thing such as hair

If you don't, just use a marker and do the exact same thing

Step 4: Finished!

Just erase those pencil lines and color, and you are done!
