Wrapping it Up
In closing, yes, I understand this whole thing isn’t as much a tutorial as an article on Corel Painter. As of this writing, I do not know if there is any effective way to create a tutorial specific to this topic. The skill (for me) is acquired through repetition, observation and visual reverse-engineering of great comic book inkers.
Experimentation is the key. I take what works and employ them into a style/ technique, I throw away what does not work for me. I constantly devour every book and every article on the topic that I can get my hands on. I look really closely on the works of inkers I admire and try to decipher their techniques, although I know what I do will probably be totally off-base from the professionals, which is another reason I cannot make a proper tutorial. If I teach the wrong way, you’ll do it the wrong way. It just works for me.
So hopefully after all this, you get what you need (as opposed to what you want) and get you into the right mindset to begin your digital inking journey.
