I like to experiment with different techniques in Photoshop. With this one, I was mainly focusing on mimicking a stippled ink effect by modifying some of the brush settings. That, in conjunction with my pen tablet (a tool I love so much I briefly considered naming my daughter Pen Tablet Gregory….darn my wife and her levelheaded, merciful ways!) makes stippled inking about a billion times faster than doing it by hand on paper.
And you don’t have to worry about smearing your ink or ruining your base sketch in Photoshop, either, which is a BIG plus for those of us who have large doses of klutz running through our veins.
