    So how do you process these lines penciled lines be ready for print?

      I paint over it with watercolor ink wash and then I scan it in and color it in Photoshop. More vids to come 🙂

    2. I’ve never really understood why, in the inking phase, while using a light box you flip the page and sketch on the back. What does that help you with?

      Flipping the board momentarily inverts the art, and that gives me a new perspective, which makes it easier to spot mistakes. Secondly, I often find myself needing to sketch in some more background or details once I start inking. Doing it on the back saves paper and time.
