Amazing Spider Man 632 cover by TimTownsend Amazing Spider Man 632 cover by TimTownsend
This is the cover for Amazing Spider-Man #632 by Chris Bachalo and myself. I realize it says # 631 on the bottom. They changed the line-up at the last minute. Inks are done by hand, NOT DIGITALLY.

What is the deal with ppl tell in you that you work digital? how do they think comics were inked before wacom and photoshop?

Lol. Exactly. I think the digital age has robbed the sense of wonder from our youth. Kids these days have grown up with digital animation and CGI so, as cool as something might look, they dont really stop and wonder. It just "is", computers did it. So, when they see something they cant imagine doing themselves by hand, they just assume its a computer. Its doubly tragic because I think it stops a lot of people from trying to actually learn how to do it by hand. For many, the thought never even occurs to them. Just fire up the ol' computer and start making pretty lines! :)

Dude, this easy very nice.

I am curious what type of ink you use. To not be doing this digitally,it is extremely black.

I must have some!

I use Koh-I-Noor 3080. Keep in mind, youre viewing a line art bitmap scan which makes the blacks totally black and the whites totally white. Thanks!

oh i see. thank you. now the problem i have is that when i ink a piece, it comes out incomplete after scanning, they're black gray and white pixels within the lines. is it a technique problem(i use tech pens)? or do you scan it just right?

:icontimtownsend:
TimTownsend Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2010  Professional General Artist
Sounds like a scanning problem. What format are you scanning in? Line art? Gray tones? Color?
Reply
:iconultimateflare:
UltimateFlare Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2010
mmmm color mostly. it might also be the fact that i erase some of the ink off when getting rid of the pencils. how do you go about the erasing? and thanks for the answers XD very helpful

Your best bet is to scan as Line Art or in Gray Scale. Scanning in Line Art creates a Bitmap. Bitmaps discard half-tones and decide that each pixel is either black or white. The end result is a scan with totally solid blacks and whites. This is also the format we scan in for print. You may need to go back in and clean up the scan a little in Photoshop because some pencil remnants are sometimes picked up and translated as black. But, then again, its always a good idea to clean up your scans no matter what format you use. If you scan in this format and plan to reduce the size of the image for viewing, be sure to convert the file to a Jpeg. If you try to reduce a Bitmap the result will be spotty.

If you scan as in Gray Scale youre going to get a JPeg. This format does show half tones. Jpegs tend to be better for viewing on a computer screen. They require more clean-up though. Immediately after scanning, use your "adjust levels" to make the whites whiter and the blacks blacker. Then just clean up the excess pencil, etc. with your Dodge and Burn tool in Photoshop.'
