    ok guys, what techniques do you use to ink your pencils? i've got a range of different size graphic pens and they work ok for me. the only problem i have is with smudging, but i hear thats a common problem with left handed people.

    i recently bought a load of brushes and some inks, so gonna try it that way when i get a chance.

    tips, anyone?

    Well, one way you can reducing smudging is by putting a towel or a tissue under your inking hand. And a very good eraser is recommended as well.:D

    Well, I don't draw much these days, but when I do, it's inking in Adobe Illustrator or some similar vector-based graphics program all the way. Once you have that much control of line weight and perfect line straighness and curves, you can't go back. :)
