Leading up to the release of Your Cold Felt Heart Issue No. 0 I wanted to go through some of the process that went into the creation of it’s cover. After completing the pencils the next step in the process was applying the finished inks to the illustration. At the time I was using Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens for all of my finished inks, but have since started using Pigma Micron Markers. The illustration took me about 2 hours to ink, and I somehow managed to only make a few mistakes (but I’m not going to point them out). Early on, when I was figuring out of my style for Your Cold Felt Heart, I decided to use a cartoonish, heavy line around the outside of my characters to distinguish them from the backgrounds of my illustrations. My backgrounds tend to have a more flat, ligne claire appearance which I think plays nicely against the more dynamic line I’m using on my character drawings. All-in-all I’m really happy with how the inks turned out on this illustration, which is rare for me because I am not a talented inker.
