I'll take that as a compliment

First the drawing is sketched out using a 3F pencil, I dont use HB because it is too dark and too soft. 3F leaves reasonably light marks and hard so stays almost a constant thinness. Then i use HB to define the final outlines.

Once I have my pencil sketch i then place another piece of paper over that and use a light box to follow around the pencil lines using a graphics pen either point 1 or 0.5. (nice thin crisp marks) This saves on rubbing out the pencil marks as 3F doesnt rub off as well because it is harder lead, usually leaves an imprint too and i always end up smudging or screwing up the paper

Then we move to the point 3 pen and begin to shade in the dark sections, point 3 i still pretty fine though so for the big areas i have a nice big pointed tip marker pen.

Once finished inking I scan into the computer and place in photoshop. The layer is duplicated then i edit the threashold, so i just have black and white. This layer is then turned to 10% opacity and placed ontop of the orginal scan to crisp it up a little.

I was just wondering how someone could do that photoshop-layer monochrome t-shirt print feeling by hand. I mean, I have the graphical talent of a dead turtle, so sometimes I just cant believe people actually drawing stuff by heart...
