Inking the Deal -08

I color copied a bunch of old pages so I could safely explore a variety of different Inking tools & techniques, without screwing up my new originals. One thing I discovered while working this week, your drawing style should accommodate your inking style; whatever that is.
As much as I poured over all the scrap pages I collected of my favorite inkers, finding my own intuitive inking style is taking quite a bit of exploring and experimentation.

I have decided to not post my final pages in this blog. I will however update the status on how the book is progressing.

Inking the Deal-07

While I'm working on the final inking of the 1st 23pgs, I thought I'd post a sample of the thumbnails for the next 12 pages. A few of these older thumbnail pgs will be revised. I'll be posting a few samples of my final inked pages next week.

Inking the Deal-06

Here's a sample of the last group of rough inked pages w/tone. These are not the final inked pages, they've been scaled down 65% to spot the blks and experiment with inking.

This is a work in progress, so there will be revisions on most of the 23 pgs before I do the final inking.
