Don't get me wrong; I love a lot of things about traditional brush and ink work. But since I'm trying to maintain a particular production schedule, anything I can do to speed the process up is a key element and eventually pushed me to go "all-in" with digital ink work.
While it's certainly fun to move ink around on Bristol board, I don't miss that frustration.
So what about pencilling? Well, in that case I'm still pretty traditional. I like working with "nubs" of pencils so that I can get my arm moving. I find that still very difficult to do digitally. Often what I do is fairly loose pencils, scan 'em in, and then tighten things up digitally before moving on to digital inks.
My whole goal is to get faster and this current way works very well for me. Though I'd always love to get even faster!
