There are references to inking techniques throughout the book such as feathering which is a great method to master with inking and the deciding factor really is working out how you are going to start inking either with pens or brushes or both, it's a fun process as you can take your graphite pencil art to a whole new level and dimension by inking it. The chapter on to trace or not to trace examines the idea of deciding on either to follow the pencil art exactly to the line or to use creative license and add something more to the pencilled art.
