I wanted to post this up because I get asked occasionally "what are you inking with?"
and also to maybe demystify what you need to ink with to get I guess people call "professional" results. I came into comics not knowing anything...I wasn't a fan of comics, I didn't draw comic art as a kid..or even in my teens...I saw the art in my early 20's went...that looks cool...and got work about a year later as an inker./ Don't buy into that it's some elite private club...it's not...work hard and dedicate yourself to your art work...and you can get work if you stick to it.
I am using 3 pens (just on this piece....I DO use hunt 102 crow quills, a writing old school illustration nib sometimes and also brushes depending on the art), on this particular piece there are no templates or straight edges...I have a rag on my desk because its at an angle and the rag helps makes things not slide off.
I was told before I broke in THIS WAS NOT A PROFESSIONAL set up. ( a few tech pens) I bit my tongue and learned what they felt I needed to know...and as soon as I was in the door I started slowly going back to these tools. I DO use a brush and a crow quill depending on the job so it's not like you should be closed minded and a stubborn person about trying new things...
but I think it's also important to point out:
You don't need a million things to get going...The Koh I Nor tech pens are pricey but I am pretty sure you can get a set of 6 or 7 pens for about $35-50.
