Here are some different inking techniques (all traditional methods)

In order:

Varied line weight (my normal way of inking (done in pen)
Dead line-weight(pen)
Dead line-weight with bold out-line (pen)
Nib and ink
Graphic (or my attempt (done in pen)
Screentone (yes, lines are done in pen, and the tones are done with toning sheets.)

Also, I want to say hi to all of the new readers. Thank you for checking out Messenger. Regular pages will be back on August 4th (just one more week of filler! I'm so excited!)
