Inking done!  
I boiled up two dozen eggs today. The reason was some were old in the fridge and there were about a dozen in that nest I found yesterday in the bushes that were dirty from being...well in the dirt for who knows how long. So those will get fed back to my chickens.

I didn't do much today except work on my art. But I'm very happy to have finished the inking on this drawing finally. I'm still getting used to using different line weights.



I wonder if Davon is too light? I am going to thicken just his outlines, but since he's far away his facial features at least had to be thinner. Solan I'm very pleased with. I hope I won't have problems with my lines and the magic wand since I inked this one completely in photoshop and it's given me problems before. But over all I'm happy with this and looking forward to coloring it up.

It's looking good so far. I think I'll always be particularly impressed with how well you do backgrounds/scenery.

Thanks. Really? It's funny because I still feel I'm learning to fill in the backgrounds and leave too much open space. But thanks. I think I am improving as I used to draw just the characters when I first started.

Ah, so that's what you do with your eggs!

I see now how you have a choice of thicker and thinner lines on your tablet. I think your drawing is very good :)

Yeah when I end up with too many I boil them up and give them back to the hens. I made a video about it.

Yeah, you can change the size of the brush and the pen. Figuring out which one to use is the tricky part. Thanks.

I went and watched the video about it. It was very good :)

The lines look good on that! I agree that cos Davon is further away, his lines should be thinner. That makes the things in the front jump out more for a better perspective.
I've just been down town and went into the card shop with Mum cos she wanted to get Dad a birthday card. I found the PERFECT birthday card for you, so I got it! I am well prepared this year lol.

Thanks. Yeah, I think I'll only slightly thicken his outline but nothing else. I got it right on Solan. He really stands out.
Oh wow. It's not even close to my birthday yet. Cool. I need to learn from your example. I hope you get your Peeps soon. They're so late now.

Your drawing is coming along well. I like the detail on Solan's face.

The inking is looking very good! All the details and lines look so well done.

Thank you. Now I need to start coloring it.
