Round 3 - Comic Book Inking... Brush style!
After posting my last 2 attempts at comic book inking, I was given some very valuable feedback from Rich Faber, a very talented professional comic book inker. If you haven't seen Rich's work, do yourself a favor and click on the link to his blog here. Go to his website from his blog and check out the gorgeous pages he has inked. He also has a couple classic monsters lurking on his site, so what are you waiting for?? The biggest suggestion Rich gave me was to take a shot at inking with a brush, rather than with technical pens. This is the result- done entirely with a brush and india ink, with some detailing and clean up done with an 005 technical pen. I knew this one was going to be a challenge before I started it, but with all the tasty little details, I couldn't resist! I must say that I loved working with the brush and I am certianly going to continue using it! My inks are on the left, the pencils are on the right. Thanks so much Rich for your advice and guidance, I really appreciate it! And I would also love to hear from anyone else that would like to comment on this round of inking!
