I really liked this post on Drawn that linked to a step by step inking example from illustrator Nick Edwards. It shows the process form the initial pencil sketch to the photoshop coloring stage.

I had always wanted to reach the talent level of John K., but never felt that my drawings had as much energy. here is an example of K’s most recent work (apparently he is pitching a distorted version of famous warner borthers characters – I would love to see that):

    People don’t appreciate that stuff. If you’re responsible for coloring stuff you’re just “that guy who traces pictures” even if it’s your colors that make the pictures stand out.
