sdbzdb said: Hey yo! How things going for ya? I wanted to ask if you ink with mostly pen or brush. I'm trying to break into brush and what I've learned so far is that it's a waiting game a bit hahah. I usually prefer messing around by myself but I thought I ask a few people there experience with it. Also loving demon kings dude. I caught up recently and I'm really looking forward to what ever happens next. S.D.B.
Glad you’re enjoying Demon Kings, bruv! As for what I use…
I use Speedball ink for washes and drybrush. I use the Koh-I-Noor ink for solid black and lines. I have a collection of nibs I use as well but I mostly use the Hunt 102. Remember this is just what I use. Don’t let anyone tell you what is best. It’s not about what tools are the best, it’s about what tools are the best for you. Or what works best for the project.
Demon Kings is dark pseudo-horror noir manga-esque cop drama so it’s all over the place ink-wise. So I use a lot of different junk on it from toothbrushes to spoons and my fingers. Look at my work on BIG RED (with @soulkarl) or my run on VIBE. Both were almost 100% just Rapidograph and brush for the parts I inked because the art direction called for a “cleaner” look.
I hope that helps. Cheers!
