INKS

Here's the inks to yesterday's pencils.









With the inks, again, i tried to keep the freshness of the original layout, while hopefully adding something to the image. I tried to add texture to the face, yet keep the rendering looking spontaneous. Practice with drybrush has helped with that, and i now try not to follow exactly where i spot my blacks in my pencils, therefore making the image less laboured-looking....

I hope......

This is one of my favourite panels so far. Mainly because of the different texturing effects you got with the ink. The drybrush on the head and smooth puckering of the scars.

Ah, thanks Thompson, appreciate it. Yeah, i think i really nailed this panel, the page as well in fact. Every now and then i'll do a page that i remain quite happy with, rather than decide that i hate it 5 days down the line.
I like to think i'm achieveing something of my own in my inks, otherwise, what's the point of me inking it?

'Drybrush on the head'?! 'Smooth puckering of the lines'...?
