I've been told by a big in the comic book industry that even though I want to be a penciler I have to ink my own work. The reason is you will avoid editors hearing complaints from the inkers and colorist. After inking a few I realized what he meant. I'm slowly regaining my inking nerve through practice. I'm doing by inking traditionally and digitally. Digital is cleaner but it's a little time consuming. But it is cheaper than traditional. A tip for first timers use marker paper and a light table to start off. once you build the nerve up try inking directly. shop around and look at different products. use what works for you.
