I am a 34 year old father of 5 who has always thought about breaking into comics. Well now I am GOING to break into comics. I am primarily an inker but will pencil the occasional short story or pin-up. Creating comics and drumming are my true passions in life.
I've been sitting on this one for a while. I was pretty intimidated by the pencil because they are not really "inker freindly" pencils. Lots of grey tones and half shading without defined lines. I finaly felt I am in a place in my developement where I can find the intended solid line in the grey. Leinil has a great sense of balance between superhero and everyday qualities in his characters. I had to fight to keep that feel while hardening the lines, which was a challenge but I feel it came together nicely.
This is another one of those pages I worked on when I couldn't sleep. Although, I only spent about a week on this one. This page gave me a chance to work on some slick, sleek line work. The page was a lot of fun. I'd like find some more of Paticks pencils to practice on in the future.
I worked on this one off and on when I could not sleep. Something nice and relaxing. I'm pretty happy with the results overall. I do my best when I lose myself in a page and find my groove but I only spent ten minutes here and fifteen minutes there, which I think made the page feel a little disjointed in spots.
