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!

My God! Keep up the brushwork! I'm completely enamored with your comic pages. Let's see a lot more.

Hey Patrick,

Wow, thanks for the super-nice comments about me and my work, and also for sending folks my way. I really appreciate it!

As for the work, from what I can see, it looks like you're doing a pretty good job with that brush so far! Keep it up!

As for the questions you left for me on my blog, I'll email you privately.

This is very nice, Patrick. You're able to get a cool, different look out of the brush than we're used to seeing. Very distinctive! I like it. Oh, and thanks for the link.
