Halloween Design Inking Process

This he next step is to "ink" it in. This involves a standard photoshop brush - hard round I believe - with a dual brush setting to give it some texture, and a setting of 85% opacity. Once the inking is completed I find it best to duplicate the layer and combine (Ctrl-E) to increase the line weight and then mess about with the brightness/constrast to get the most constrast possible.
Also where I really need to smooth the lines out I use the pen tool to create a shape over the ink drawing, then rasterize the shape and combine into the drawing layer.
