INV83 HI-res pencil for INKING by RyanOttley INV83 HI-res pencil for INKING by RyanOttley
Need some inking practice? Here's a hi-res page from INVICIBLE 83 page 11. This is Tether Tyrant and Magmaniac busting into Machine Head's lair. INK AWAY!


PRINTING IN BLUELINE> for those that don't know. Normally this file is changed to blueline before it is printed out so when you ink over it then re-scan it the blue won't shop like the dark pencil lines would. So to change it to blueline in Photoshop, I go to Image, then adjustments, then Levels, then I change where it says RGB to green and slide the bottom left slider all the way to the right, then I change back to the little box where I selected green and change that again to blue, and slide the left slider all the way to the right again. Lines should be blue now. Now I'll change the box back to RGB and slide the slider to the right until it's at the desired lightness because you don't want to print it too dark.
I think there are a few ways to make lines blue so if anyone has a better way just post it! Thanks. Also I use a BROTHER scanner/printer, it cost me 300 bucks, I think it's cheaper now though. They work fine on 11x17 paper, but only on thinner paper. It doesn't do too well with really thick 4ply bristol paper. Anyway, happy inking!

Here is my try on your pencils [link] I've never tryed to ink anything that is as detailed as this is. My hand got a little soar after this. Had fun! Hopefully you can put up a new page for inking someday :]

I needed some inking practice for an upcoming gig and had this page sitting around on my HD from when you originally posted it. Thanks for making it available for us. Oh yeah, and for doing incredible work every month. :) Your work still amazes me with every issue I read.

If you want to see how my inks turned out, you can see them here: [link]

Thanks Ryan!
