Question Is this worth inking and CGing?




Cagalli and Athrun from Gundam Seed with some Naruto stuff thrown in. I can't draw clothes on guys so Athrun gets a plain ol' T-shirt. Plus the dude in the reference pic was wearing one so it made it easier

Opinions, but don't make me cry

Yes... you could try inking it... cos right now its kinda too sketchy but definitely looks like theres a lot of potential that could be done to it... and once inked I'm sure it'll look much better

I think a good ink job and some nice color would only improve the picture. It DOES have a lot of potential. Bring it out. ^.^;;

I say go for it. It's got character which inks and colors would enhance greatly. Hmmm... if you're worried about ruing the pencils during the inking process another thick would be to print your scanned version in a light non-photo blue on an inkjet printer. When you scan the inks the non-photo blue shouldn't show up in the scan (at least I'm told it doesn't... I don't have a printer).

yup, give it a go.

photo blue is used a lot of times in B&W photography and old school print houses. basically they do just as said above.

but I've never heard of a printer that's able to print photo blue..

the trick i usually use when inking:
-Bienfang Graphics 360 pad. It's basically a rag translucent marker paper, very white (bleached very well), doesn't bleed.
-The basic tracing paper also works well, but they usually have some dirt spots here and there..; a bit hazzy here and there. (got to be a bit careful with the amount of ink used, too much and they'll run/bleed).

Both are smooth paper, desirable when inking with graphic pens, more so than the Xerox paper.

Sorry, but i gotta be truthful here, but please bear in mind that i mean this with no personal offense intended.

It is ametuer-ish. The lines don't flow and they are very sketchy (You double-ed back on the lines when you were drawing didn't you,) next time, try to restrict yourself by drawing with only bold strokes (In other words, don't double back, also if you read this, can you show me another sketch of yours done quickly? Don't think 'i'm gonna present this, better make it pretty' when your drawing it, just go with the flow and sketch like you would when you're in you class listening to your borign teacher, again i mean no offense by 'boring teacher' ), this would build up your confidence. It would help also if you practised by drawing 1-minute sketches, so to speak. Take a look at an object, and sketch it under a minute, it dosen't have to be perfect, just has to have a general form.

So to answer your question, it isn't worth cg-ing. Sorry.

I don't sketch all that often so I don't really have anything to show... but thats basically how they all look., with the doubled-over lines and such. But thanks for the opinion.


Asura I used PSP for the lineart and photoshop to color it.

doubling over lines is actually ok for sketch -especially for rough sketching. as long as you do it the right part the right time. which is why I said ok give it a go earlier. what I didn't expect was the outline/inking part (came out really flat -which is fine as long as you do the colouring well).

anyways, Stellae, can you elaborate how you colour it in photoshop? especially the shading part.
oh, next time, avoid using filter(s) for bg. Either you paint it or leave it blank (I'm an anti filter).

well, i guess in the words of the wise, filters are fine, since they're only tools.

I'm sorry this is an old thread, but is it possible for someone to post an example of a "double-over" lined sketch, and one that isn't "double-overed"? I know what you mean by that, but what's so bad about double-overing? i mean, you can do that, then just ink then erase the other lines right? I myself haven't done a sketch that hasnt been "double-overed" so to speak...and id like to try and restrict myself from doing that as you say. Thanks.
