Inker Dick Giordano makes a conscientious effort to give the different shapes in this panel their own identities by

applying different inking techniques. The leaves in the tree are inked in a different way than the leaves on the shrubs or

the grass on the ground. From Batman #227 (December 1970), script by Dennis O’Neil and pencils by Irv Novick.

In a page pencilled and inked by Neal Adams, the various textures are inked in a very deliberate fashion. The leather of

the chair in the first panel is inked differently than the wood grain of the chair. In panel three, the reflections on the

shiny surfaces are inked differently than the pattern on the floor. The floor pattern is inked differently than the carpet

pattern. Neal is a master of giving shapes and surfaces their own identities by applying very specific textures to them.

From Superman #254 (July 1972), script by Len Wein.
