These are the inks. The process I go through when inking is pretty typical it seems according to what I know of how others work.
I work on Strathmore 500 series semi-smooth Bristol paper. This paper allows me to both use a nib pen and a brush without bleeding off of either, and it holds a line very nicely. As far as inking goes I use a Sumi ink. It is a VERY dark ink but stays nice and thin through a nib so it won't clog it. I use a Windsor and Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Hair sable brush and/or a Raphael 8404 Kolinsky hair sable brush. I usually use a size 1, but a W&N is a little larger, so I kick up to a size 2 on the Raphael...sometimes.
Anyway, please go to your local comic shop and order this for me! I would be ever so grateful. There are only 1,500 copies of my cover, LET'S SELL IT OUT!!!
