About Me

My photo
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 was working on a project with a tight deadline and lots personal changes happening in my life. It felt like every line I was laying down on anything was forced. I needed to get back on track.

I came across this Rogue pic while searching for inspiration and was instantly transported to a time in my youth when my heroes were the characters in the comics I was reading and not the creators. This felt good.

So I took a few hours to  break from my tight deadlines and go back in time. While I was inking this I was on total auto pilot and I don't think I made a single concious decision on it. Before I knew it, 3 hours had passed and I was staring at a fully inked page.

I know I am no Scott Williams but I am pretty happy with the way this turned out. I managed to keep Rogue in that statuesqe, iconic, larger than life kind of light. The Dinosaur kind falls into the waterfall and cliff. I'm not sure how to fix that but it presents a new challenge for me to overcome another day.
