My guide to pentool inking by The-Yuri-Canon My guide to pentool inking by The-Yuri-Canon
Edit: You can now watch me work with the pentool on video at Youtube: [link]

View more of my tutorial here: [link]


For inking with pentool check here: [link]
For how I made borders: [link]
For how I make speech balloons: [link]
How I apply Screen tones: [link]

Edit: I added in some info regarding the pentool in photoshop 7 and up.

Edit: Check out my video of me drawing with the Pentool to get a better idea of how I do this.

After several people inquired about how I go about my works I decided to move my old tutorials here. This one is how I clean up and ink using a pentool. The tool was very useful when all I had was a track ball to work with and I still use some of these tricks even though I now have a tablet.

This is just a guide to how I do things and posted to help others so please don't complain about my way of doing things. I've been doing this for 10 years now and it is how I prefer to do my works.

Thanks, hope it helps. I really need to update that tut one of these days. I did more videos but they didn't work for some reason. I need to figure out what went wrong...

Well good luck to you.

I found this one some weeks back, and now I have a reason to read it: I have to do a really big poster for class, and I just can't draw well on such a big paper. What I decided to do is draw a small one, enlarge, and then pen-ink it so it'd look nice. I already practised!

Thanks for uploading this!

Just a quick question. I've been vectoring with a mouse, but now I've got a tablet now. I used to vector with the pentool, but I try it in the tablet and it's... not easy. I mean, it is still slow to do vector in it, even with a tablet. Is there a way to do a line without pausing to handle every anchor point? (I'm sorry if I don't make sense, english's not my first language)

Thank you!

I simply don't pause. I've been vectoring with a trackball for years and then moved to a tablet about 8 years ago. The more I work on it the quicker I get. It is all a matter of knowing your tools to a point that you don't even think about it. I tend to just click and drag while moving. I rarely have to turn back to an old anchor to change it. Just keep at it and with time you'll get faster and faster.
