I really enjoy the way you draw rain--both the drops and how you have it soaking everything (a detail many artists forget).

Thanks Ted! I learned a lot about rain and other weather elements from artists like Will Eisner, Joe Kubert, and Al Williamson. I used to draw rain as if strings were overlapping a whole scene. I think in real life we see more how rain effects things than the rain itself. Unless it's a downpour we tend to judge how much it's raining by looking at the ground or at our car, etc.

That's so true.  I am definitely guilty of the overlapping lines method.  Now that I think about it, I have seen those artists use that detail as well.

I love the range of strokes that gives it textures and depth :)

Thanks Douglas! I think inking is more about drawing than technique. So whatever works, and I have fun with different textures for sure.

Thanks for such great advice Bill.

I've never thought about inking as just drawing with ink... it makes total sense, and to be honest inking kind of scares me a little. I've been trying to achieve the mainstream professional look like Mark Morales or Mark Irwin, but can't get to it.

What you said gives me light in my personal struggle, in fact it explains some amazing stuff I've seen from Klaus Janson (I love his inks)... of course his work is drawn that way.

Mmm and the having fun part, I've been so consumed with technique that I forgot about enjoying it...

Thanks again.

You can learn a lot by looking at old storybook illustration too, like Arthur Rackham or Howard Pyle.

If you're going to be an "inker" there is probably more call to look mainstream, but if it's your own work technique is less important. Just good drawing counts then.
You mentioned Klaus Janson. A younger guy that really draws in ink is Sean Gordon Murphy.

WOW... Pyle's ink is amazing, I've seen his color work, but never his inks... and Rackham's line values are so strong. I'm gonna look into their work, thanks for pointing it!

I don't plan to ink on other people's work, just my own pencils, even though I love the mainstream technique I think I will feel more confortable with something closer to what you did with this one.

I love Murphy's work, I found about him here at DA and got hooked by his "Off Road" and "Punk Rock Jesus",  just as I stumbled upon your work and became a follower/student of your art.

Thanks again for all the advice.
