in-laws :: line work

tomer :: the inking stage for me consists of brainlessly following the (cleaned up and enlarges) sketch with the occasional texture as seen here with the parent's hair and boy's leather shoes. I use a triple zero brush and speedball ink on smooth bristol paper.


  1. Hey man, I love the work and I have a question about your process. When you do your inks, do you ink on top of a tighter pencil drawing or do you use your sketch as a visual reference and freehand draw with ink? Or do you do something else entirely? I love this blog, it is very inspiring. thanks.

    what about their funny creature you did in the first sketch , i like it .

  3. Wow Tomer!!
    You blow my mind each and everyday. This illustration is such a stroke of genious I can't put words on it. And I'm sure you'll plus it another few hundred procent in coloring.

    I LOVE this blog!

    Tomer, this blog is amazing, I am so glad you update so often. I look forward to see the illustrations printed. Are there any posters you have done or larger printed works, I have the bazooka tooth poster and would like to have more of you work.

  5. nate- after the sketch is approved, i print it in about 150% and trace it on a thicker paper using a light box. i clean up the drawing and add details if needed, then ink that and erase the pencil.

    nam- there are way too many faces that attracts attention. i had to edit the carpet creature out so it's not overly busy.

    jakob- tnx! :)

    anon- no posters yet...but we are planning on opening a print shop here at some point.
