how do you guys fix your mistakes?

Just thought it'd be cool to see how everyone else fixes their mistakes.

I really hate erasing so I try to draw lightly and darken with inks, but when I screw up I have a bunch of different ways I fis it up. If it's small I'll use the whiteout strips, a white marker, or white ink, but it's too far gone I'll just cut another piece of bristol and glue it right over the mistake, but I'll cut out the entire panel and it'll go over so that it looks like the same page when it's scanned in.

As a colorist, I have developed the intricate method of fixing my mistake by clicking Edit-> Step Backward in Photoshop. Or sometimes I get wild and use the ALT+CTRL+Z hotkey for it.

I LOVE digital coloring.

When drawing, I use a hard lead (2h) for my initial sketches usually, or just draw lightly. I rarely erase, as it seems to change the way the paper accepts lead (graphite, or whatever the hell 'leads' are made from these days).

Get it in Photoshop, Almost anything can be fixed there.

I just draw on better teh average printer that can hold ink ( its light enough to see through ) and I do a fix, then in Photoshop i just paste it in.

Usually either the [DEL] or [BACKSPACE] key.

Sometimes I'll hold down the [SHIFT] key and use the arrows to highlight a section of text and then use [CTRL] + [C] to copy the section and then [CTRL] + [V] to paste it. The alternative to that is after highlighting to use [SHIFT] + [DEL] to cut it and then [SHIFT] + [INSERT] to paste it back in.

If I really screwed the pooch, I'll highlight using the above mentioned method and then simply hit [DEL] to remove the whole shebang.

What about white-out, i literally use white out brand white-out on my inked illustrations(its the only thing that actually covers up the blacks). i'm not sure if its archival safe or not, but I've been doing it for awhile and I've been wondering if any of you guys use something more "professional",that actually does the job.

It all depends on the type of board your using. I use to use Holbein Acryla gouache(titanium white) to fix inking goofs but have recently switched to using good 'ol gesso and a nice piece of superfine sandpaper and smooth it out after.

I actually found an old brush/ink piece from 1992 last Fall , gessoed out the figures in the center and redrew the now "cleaned up " area with something completely new and different (and , in my opinon , better).

The only thing you need to remember is to let the gesso dry completely or it'll just come right up when the sanding starts.

OK I'm curious, what is gesso?

I wish I could use photoshop to fix my mistakes. I realize colorists and letterers got it easy. But me- I'm old fashioned, I don't scan it in till it's as perfect as I can get it. Of course all I do is pencil and ink so fixing mistakes- I mean major mistakes is a pain in the ass but a must. Wish I could hit delete and my pencils or inks would come off.

Erasers are for suckers.
I make no mistakes. An artist puts a line precisely where he means to...

But it doesn't hurt if you have some pro-white, white mailing labels and an
X-acto with number 11 blade on hand... If you are the "ink on bristol" sort...

Gesso is the opaque white stuff that oil painters use to prime their canvas or board before painting on it.
