Practice Inks by RansomGetty Practice Inks by RansomGetty
So here is my finished first attempt at digital inking a page of mine in Manga Studio.  I think, generally, it was pretty asuccessful but Who knows! I liked Jay Leisten's original inks on this page much more. 

I guess the question is: does this look digital or does it pass as possibly being like my traditional work?

I agree with the first comment you received on this is piece, someone familiar with the medium can see that it is digital, but most people won't see the difference. (I am guessing that you can see tons of differences since you are used to inking traditionally.) 

I don't think there is anything wrong with this page looking digital--I mean, that's the medium you used--and it is obvious you understand lines very well. It is a lovely piece! The way you use line weight to communicate form is skillful and sensitive. I also think you did a very good job keeping your shapes distinct. When black and white are are all you have to work with, it is easy to let complex details overwhelm the important shapes and lines; you keep everything very nicely balanced. 

Thanks for sharing!

Great stuff man. I think your traditional inking is so refined, that I can tell a difference, especially in the feathering. That said, you have such an understanding of line weight from learning traditional inking that it still comes through, and this is still a great job. With any tool, the more you do this, the faster and more proficient you'll get.

Thanks Robert, I really agree the speed will come with more familiarity.  Also, I should have mentioned this was done with a tablet as opposed to a cintiq which i feel would improve the speed and would refine some of the silliness of a couple lines/feathering. It also helps that in about the last 8 minutes of working on this, I realized the straight line tool also had curved line tools as well.  Bah, I feel like this project was enough to make me stop fooling around with the free trial Manga Studio 4 and buy MS 5.
