Okay I've got these fancy Copic Multiliner markers now and am trying to figure out how to use them in my comic. Yesterday I noticed that if I try erasing over them--to get rid of the old pencil marks around them--and it was an area I worked over pretty heavily with the markers, the paper can kind of tear up a bit from the erasing.

So today I tried just doing a very light trace with the thinnest marker ("0.03 mm"! :o), then erasing, then going in and doing the real marker work. Problem was that I didn't bother tracing with great fidelity, and then I sorta lost the effect of details like the expression of the mouth, and had to spend a lot of time retouching it at the end to get it back to the effect of the original pencil drawing (which fortunately I had photographed!).



So I think if I do something like that again I'll just have to make sure the trace is every bit as good as the pencils beneath it, blargh.
