    Tutorial Request - Bring Pencil Concepts to an Inked/Shaded state

    I really don't know if this is a viable tutorial or not...

    But I somehow have to turn my normal pencil concepts to an inked and shaded state - something which I have no experience with (other than ballpoint pen doodle-sketches).

    Perhaps you could take one of the building concepts from this other gallery of mine at: http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/loth/a...e/afoote.html.

    I doubt that I will include the actual building layouts - just the 3d views of the buildings.

    Also if you could include a good list of kinds of inks/grey markers that I can go out and pick up at my local art store ( I hope we have one up here ) that would be great.

    Thanks immensly for any and all advice and/or tutorials...

    you've got some nice work on your site, Aaron!

    Line work is a pretty deep subject. Fortunately, there's a great (classic) book by Arthur Guptill called "Rendering in Pen and Ink," and I think it would be just the ticket for you. It's only $18 at Amazon, and it really does a great job of describing most of what's involved with line work. Best of all, I think it would be a perfect fit for your architectural-style renderings.

    Thumbs up Thanks

    Thank you very much - I will definetly look into purchasing the book. I recently got a job at a local art store while searching for supplies so now I can even afford some of the markers, pens, etc that I need. :cool:

    Before you begin rendering, I would highly suggest that you work on your perspective.

    Other than that, one method of doing things is this:

    Photocopy the piece at Kinko's or something, put it onto translucent marker paper. From there you can use a technical pen or something of the like to get the outlines done. And use the cool grey color set from the prismacolor markers [or pantone tri-tip markers] to get the different shades. That's just ONE method of doing things.

    There are other ways with just using ink, I'm just not familiar with them, lol.
