    "Even if one somehow manage to ink over all the dark and heavy shadings, it will make the paper seem to wet or thin." -Aya-Kun

    ---Now the problem there lies on the paper, the pen, or the artist. The point of pens are usually sharp enough to scrape the fibers out of a paper's surface, yeah you're right it does make papers thinner. One way out of this is simply hand control, some people just find it too difficult to control their hand pressures.

    The other way out lies on the materials being used, it's either a pen problem or a paper problem. Sometimes no matter how well-controlled an artist is he/she is still unsafe from ink blots, bleeds, and paper failure..It's a matter of choosing the situationally right materials.

    Anyone here tried inking on Bristol boards? It's one of the most preferred paper/board by inkers and pencillers alike. It's thick and tough enough to withstand heavy hand pressures, it is pretty cheap and common too. Try it sometimes, for those who haven't tried it yet...There's a lot of other good quality papers out there too...

India ink is also water proof when it dries so if you want to use watercolor after inking(weird way of working) I guess you could.

    But yes, I love ink and watercolors. But i generally color before inking if I even ink at all.
    Yeah, but it takes alot of patience and skill ta work wit a fountain pen; or brush; and india ink. I often have great difficulty in workin' wit them, on account that my hand shakes too much. It's funny, I can sketch a; practically, straight line, but I have a hard time drawin' a straight line usin' a fountain pen.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    Bristol is good, also, you can invest in illustration board or watercolor paper. If you dislike the rough water color paper you can get hot press, it's more expensive but very nice to work on.

    Time of emotion are always best for me.
    When I have time to just sit and think, that is when things come.
    And depending on that mood, I play off what I draw, and how I do it.
    Its kinnda hard to explain, but its cool to see everyones responses here.

    Y'know what emotion-driven artists like you are the ones who earn so much nowadays from the sophisticated and high roller crowd.

    "you can invest in illustration board or watercolor paper. If you dislike the rough water color paper you can get hot press, it's more expensive but very nice to work on." -Sazuka

    Yeah he/she(?) is right watercolor papers are rough and tough but for me it's just not so versatile in terms of medium. Illustration boards are just right and quite budget friendly, Master and Berkeley are just one of the few "better" brands.

    Anybody here who loves doin' stuff digitally? Anybody here loves to do it on canvas?
