Digital Inking in Corel Painter 11

I have been getting numerous requests over the years to make a tutorial on how exactly I digitally ink my work using Corel’s Painter™. Let me get this out of the way first; I have not been trained whatsoever by anyone in the comic book industry. What I do and how I do it is from years of experimentation with the tools I’ve acquired and visually studying those https://hotcanadianpharmacy365.com/drugs/Advair+Diskus/ of the works of real comic book inkers like Scott Williams, Richard Friend and Joe Weems (to name just a few).

Before I continue, this tutorial assumes the following:

  • You own and have basic knowledge on how to use Corel Painter version 11 and above.
  • You own and have basic knowledge of how to use a graphics Tablet. Here I’m using a WACOM™ Intuos3 A5.

The most important to know is that I’m going to emphasize in this tutorial not the techniques I use to ink, but how my tablet and Painter is set upped so that it reacts to my natural strokes and gestures.

    Thanks a million for this! When I installed a new version of Corel Painter, my inking looked really off and I couldn’t figure out why. Playing with the brush tracking made such a difference. Seriously, I searched everywhere for this information. Cheers! 😀

    Nice tutorial. I’ve never inked in Painter (I usually use PS and Sai). I’m always looking out, though, for a program that can give my digi-inks a more organic and traditional inking look. I’ll have to try this out. Thanks for the tutorial! 🙂
