I am really sloppy with my inks. I almost ink like other people pencil. I don't like having a single line to define stuff. The reason I do this is to keep the energy of the pencils in the inks. Sometimes you will see pencils and say that looks awesome, then when you see the inks it looks dead. So I try to do the inks with that same energy of the pencils. For Cubicles I used Faber-Castell PITT pens. Mostly XS and S sizes. Though I did use F and M to outline larger shapes. I did use some brush and ink for action lines and also a toothbrush for splatters. These I could usually do in 1-3 hours.
I really wanted to do an inkwash on the pages for the toning/coloring. However I had printed out my pages too dark. So that thumbnail lines would have shown up in the file product. This is a problem I will have to figure a way around. Maybe just print it really light. So I had to fake an ink wash digitally. The way I pulled this off was by splattering ink wash on a blank paper, scan it in and then overlay it on my page in Photoshop. I think but down some gray colors which picked up the overlay of washes, making it look similar to a wash. I will be posting a how to on this in the future. I went for a really sloppy look so these only took around 30 minutes to an hour to complete.
