It depends, some people love working with tablets, other still prefer the mouse. As for coloing I would say both have their advantages, I for example couldn't really ink or make linearts without my tablet anymore ^^; . But generally it still depends on the preferences of each user ;) I actually needed a very very long time to get used to a tablet at all.

This is very interesting! I'm thinking of inking with my tablet instead of that pen tool.

I always has this shaky problem when doing the line , how do you over come that ? And , if I'm using tablet , the result of using tablet is actually the same like using a mouse . I have to erase the tip of the line to make sure the line looks nice .

I had the problem with the shaky lines too, I could get rid of it by putting a sheet of paper on the active surface of the tablet, taped on with sticky tape, so it's a lot less slippery, but it makes your nibs worn out easily and a lot faster!
Concerning the lines being thin on the end and the beginning can be a program setting, in Photoshop for example you need to turn the 'pen pressure' on in the brush settings ;)

Really ? We can put a paper on the end ? Thanks ! That really help me .
BTW I don't know how to change brush pressure because my Photoshop version is actually PS Element and they didnt provide the tool to edit brushes . So can you put a download brush set for this technique ? THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT INFORMATION !

Lizkay Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
yes, on the tablet-surface (not on the pen!), the signal of the tablet-pen goes through the paper, as said, the only negative thing you need to keep in mind is that it's going to grind down your tablet pen-nibs a lot faster than without paper!
The brush-setting, per se, the possibility to do settings at all can't be saved into a brush set, I am afraid, if the programm doesn't allow that setting you can't 'add' it ^^;

What is a pen-nibs ? The plastic ending on the tip of the pen is it ?
Reply
:iconlizkay:
Lizkay Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
yes, the little plastic end tip, it's replaceable ;)
but these parts are rather pricey

:iconkimine-kun:
kimine-kun Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2010  Student Digital Artist
You mean the little plastic at the tip will run out ? o_O ? And does people sell it anywhere ?
Reply
:iconlizkay:
Lizkay Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
yes, only the small tip part ;) if you only use it on the tablet without paper it won't really get smaller, but the paper can grind it down.
and yes, they sell those tips you can get them here for example: [link] all you need to know is the exact type of your tablet

Awesome tutorial, computer inking is so much better for consistency in my opinion, and having a pen tablet makes it easier for me. I especially like the shading tip at the end, I remember something like that from my Digital Media class last year but I forgot it earlier :D. I might shade the cover image and leave the rest as is.
Does anyone else find this the LONGEST part of doing a comic page?

the part I need most of the time is cleaning up the sketch, if that work step is done the rest works out rather fast ;)

Yes, cleaning up does help, I agree.

Oh it should be in the default-brush set of Photoshop, and if there is no 3px or 5px one you can still type the size of your brush in there (just where it's explained on that screenshot) ;) and it should look the same.

hmm.. try to press "B" and than "F5" than the Brush-menue should pop up. Possible that it is hidden in the window menue ;)

I have the menu window, but still don't have teh same brushes you have :noes:

Lizkay Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
ah okay, got that wrong. Photoshop normally comes with a default set of brushes, these are also the ones visible here, if you don't have them try to click on that little triangle-in-circle symbol in the brush menue, there should be a list on the bottom of the window coming up, saying "Assorted brushes, Basic brushes..etc." click on them and than say "append" now there should be some brushes, or at least these ones I have there. ;)

Shir-Olorna Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008
Nope, nothing happened. I clicked on everything there, clicked append, but nothing happened DX

:? hmm.. no idea what the problem could be than, probably the brush-folder is gone? It should be in the Adobe Photoshop Folder under "Presets" I think.

Oh you can, what I checked, only panel design (frames) is a bit annoying to do it that way, though character inking and shading, works well that way ;)

Nice Tutorial.

I usually do my Inking in Illustrator. Even tho I have a tablet pc. I can get more even lines if i just do it in illustrator. Plus I work fast if I'm not erasing every single line I mess up.!
