I was wondering if anyone is interested in learning how to ink with a steak knife as seen in our latest comic. If anyone wants to see an instructional video, I'd be happy to oblige.

You made that using a knife?



Seriously?







I'm impressed.
Those were my two cents.

Yup. It's an old steak knife dipped in ink and it just kinda works really well.

That is hardcore. :)

I can imagine making a really violent comic and then ink it with a knife. Just reading it would be like getting beat up.

Glad to see you like it. I just want to see if enough people are interested in seeing the process to warrant us making a video.

Personally I'd never use it (I'm too clumsy with liquids and spill everything all the time so no ink in a bottle for me, thank you) but I'm always happy to see things like that :)

I think a number of people would be interested, just that DD is a pretty small audience. :] If you were to upload it on youtube I'm sure loads of people would find it, considering how many art and comics centred sites are out there. A lot of people like to watch artist's processes too, especially if it involves something unusual.

Deal. I'll work on the video right quick then. What should the picture be? A new comic? Or stand-alone piece of art?

A comic, IMO.

Bad news! We took a video of the latest comic but it's way too low quality to show anything. We'll work on a new video. Sorry for the wait.
