How did you even begin?? I suppose the foreground characters first and then working your way "back?"

The inks in this entire issue were just gorgeous; I love the beautiful thicks and thins coupled with some solid black here and there. It looks ever so smooth!

Nice inking! 
That's a lot of pencils to ink over, how long did it take to ink? Do you ink with pen nibs? For my comics, I use micron markers. 
Is a pen nib a required inking tool in the comics undustry when working traditionally?

Thank you! It took me 3 days to finish. I don't use pen nibs. Cartoon style inking is traditionally done with a brush. (And I'm all about old-school!)

This splash is just absurd in its awesome.

Is there no way to get a higher resolution of the inks? I could just analyze its details all day.
