Best way to have comic-styled outlines on figs?

Posted in Custom Workstation

So I'm nearly done with my very first customs, which are the main 3 characters from my graphic novel series. Now, what I really want to do is after I do base coats of painting them (I don't really want to do a wash or anything fancy) I want to have black outlines around everything, similar to the NECA TMNT figures.

I've found that copic markers are terrible for anything like that, because they leave a heavy gloss and make the paint sticky. Would it be best just to use a really thin brush and go around all the details, and all that? Or should I use sharpie? What have you guys found that works best? Thanks!

So would dipping like an empty fine liner pen into some ink (I only have model masters acrylic flat black would that work?) work as well?

Great advice! I know you said no wash but there is an easy way to do it if you just use black and a paper towel to wipe down the wash over the highlighted area leaving the black in the shadowed parts then go over any dark spots with the original color! Pretty easy and you can find tutorials on it.

Use something like citidale and a micro pen. From tamiya. If not that,
A if you trust your hands a tiny brush with black citidale.
