So heres my first inking attempt. I used a Micron Pigma brush and a Faber Castell Pitt artist pen. These brushes are fun to draw with and you can lay down large areas of ink with ease. The Micron pen is a little more like a brush in the sense that its a little flimsy where as the Faber Castell brush is a little stiffer and good for smaller detailed parts.

I originally screwed this one up in the face. I was expierimenting and went a little too far. I was also trying to be overly perfect. When I decided that it looked messed up I just started being loose and not caring so much and I think I accidentally salvaged it.

More Stinky inks

Heres some more inks. Something weird is happening with my copy of Illustrator CS2 when I ink. After I get done inking, I save the file but am unable to open the file back up. It says, "Cant open Illustration ID - 50." It then opens up the file and all my inklines I made are gone!

Im still able to open the Illustrator file in Photoshop, but it rasterizes it, so I cant go rework it in Illustrator.

Ive never seen this before, but it only seems to be doing this when I use the brush tool. Is this a graphic card issue?
