Zombie Hog 2

I did another inking of my sketch. This time I only used a brush and black ink. Again, the tone was added in Photoshop.

I am trying to emulate digitally the look of the old Craftint or Duoshade paper. It was, or may still be, a heavy paper with one or two invisible tone patterns imprinted onto it. The dark line or dot patterns appeared by the application of a developer - a separate chemical for either the light or the dark tone. Cartoonists would use dip pens or brushes to apply the fluid.

John Severin is the master of this technique.

Just like those magic booklets you get at the airport gift know, the ones that come with a marker.
