thanks for the insight. I thought it is good pratice to follow the penciller lead. I would only use a straightedge if it looked like they did it first. I might change line weight slightly depending on the situation or make a curve smoother if it looked odd. thank you for the prompt response. I have also got some good insight from tim townsend. I would like to say both of you are class acts and do great work

It depends one who you're inking.  Usually if something is already done with s straight edge, it's safe to say you're good to ink it with a straight edge.  Sometimes, a penciller may freehand certain lines to get the job done quicker without getting the ruler.  In that case, you can use a straight edge if you like.  Some artist likes their work more organic and and don't use any straight edge work at all.  With penciller I ink like that, I'll also ink freehand.  It all depends on who you're inking.  When I ink, I like to ink towards what make their work shine, not over take the penciller's style.

I went to your blog and saw some wonderful work there. I have a question if you don't mind. If the pencils you are working on look like they used a straightedge do you follow suit or does it depend. I inked a cityscape that joel gomez did a while back, but it was all freehand so I followed his lead. It would have been quicker to use a straightedge, but i felt it would have did the work a disservice.

I understand the idea of giving it a mechanical look sometimes, but I felt that if he wanted that look he would have done so.

Hmmm?  Shows up on mine.  But I wasn't keeping track the last three weeks.  Maybe it just takes a while?  I mean, how long has it been - less than 24 hours?  I'd give it a day or two.
