Well, the strip came out in print looking better than I imagined. Lucky me.

For years I struggled trying to ink my own work using various tools until I gave in and used the computer to do my inking for me. Autotrace in Illustrator does a fairly good job 'inking' my pencils. In my mind though, I feel it's not 'real' inking and there's not the level of control that you can get from doing it by hand. So, the next strip'll be inked by hand. Well, maybe. I kinda like the randomness that the computer creates. It 'sees' the lines differently and often mixes and merges the pencil lines in unexpected ways.

Keep a cool head, a dry foot-and you'll never have a wet sock. Apparently....

Yup, it came from a conversation with Mike where I misspelled TARDIS, we concluded it was a TARDIS knock off.

A TARDIS knock-off? Bigger on the outside maybe? :eyepopping:

Hey.
No, never tried over pencils. I'm pretty new to the game. Always ready to learn though.

Cheers.
