George Liquor - digital inking

After several days of practice, here are my first serious attempts of inking in Adobe Illustrator, based on the layout drawings posted at John's blog.

It's OK, but could be better, and there's plenty of room for improvement. Here are John's inking tips with some amazing examples. That's the level I'm aspiring to, and need much more practice to reach it.

More stuff to come, later...

Hi Dragan

good accuracy on the shapes, but try to get more consistency in the line weights.

see my posts for tips

Thanks for advice! I'll pay great attention to this in my next attempts.

Say, Dragan, I had a question:

I recently opened up two blogs (going on three: two are about me and my art, and one's a Jhonen Vasquez gallery), and I've also started drawing cartoons according to the principles from the Preston Blair book.

But I wanted to know: I do a lot of the construction and roughage in red pencil, but I don't know how to give the black pencil lines any line weight? Is it because I use mechanical pencils? Or some darker, sinister plot?
