Something thats puzzled me for a while is do you ink the lettering when doing the pencils or do uou scan back in and re letter in black? obviously you do the balloons and captions at the inking stage but what about the actually letering?
The lettering is digital, so I just dropped it into the scanned inks.
I think that the process from the line work (partial inks) to the the finished inks requires quite a lot of knowledge about lightning and composition. Do you have any advice about that? For instance, I wonder why the face of the guy with the cigarette has a very big shadow, but the guy closer to the "camera" doesn't have a shadow on his face. I was guessing it is not all about representing shadows realistically but about composing the white and black areas so that the image can be easily recognized by the eye. Anyway, thanks a lot for this kind of "how-to" series, they are very interesting!! :)
