Synopsis

For the aspiring artist who wants to become an expert comic book inker, The DC Comics Guide to Inking Comics is the definitive, one-stop resource!

America’s leading comic book publisher brings its superstar creators and classic characters to the third in an authoritative series of books on how to create comics. Legendary comic book inker Klaus Janson uses DC’s world-famous characters—including Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman—to demonstrate an array of inking techniques, covering such topics as using textures, varying line weights, creating the illusion of three-dimensionality, and working with light and dark. Janson’s lively, step-by-step instructions are informative, exciting—and clear enough for even beginners to follow. In addition, every technique shown in this guide conforms to actual industry standards.

The perfect how-to on everything from basic inking materials to storytelling techniques, this one-stop sourcebook is packed with a wealth of tested techniques, practical advice, and professional secrets for the aspiring comic artist.

Excerpt

One of the most useful inking tips I ever learned was not about the type of ink but the amount. You should always have two bottles of ink on your table. One bottle is used to ink and the other is used to refill the first one. Always keep the inking bottle filled to the rim. The brush and pen only need to dip right below the rim to pick up more than enough ink to perform. This eliminates any question about the level of ink inside the bottle and the probing with a brush or pen that goes on when the artist is uncertain where the ink level is. it also guarantees that the artist has control over the amount of ink being used and speeds up the inking by quite a bit!
