This weeks theme on the Comic Twart blog is the Black Beetle; a character created by fello 'Twarter' Francesco Francavilla. You can see the coloured version over on there.

Dude! That is sweet. I know im not a member of the Twarts, but I was gonna do a piece anyway of BB. I had a design similar, time to scrap it, cuz yours makes mine look like crap! I love your buildings in the background! Talk about a pulpy feel!

Very nice Declan, love whole feel of this what did you do the greys with marker pens?

Declan Shalvey said...

Thanks a lot guys!

James, i do all my greys with an inkwash i mix up; indian ink diluted with water. Pretty basic, but i like how even a 'flat' grey will have a slight texture to it, rather than the sheen of marker pens. Suits the roughness of how i draw better, i think.

I think this is one of the first times you've posted up a colored version of your art that is right on par with the uncolored version. Improvement by leaps and bounds, Dec. They're both incredible!
