Marc Silvestri

I just wrapped up penciling, inking and lettering a ten page short for a Las Vegas anthology, so to celebrate, I decided to treat myself to just inking a fun page. Something for me.

In comes the Marc Silvestri  page you see to your left. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I spent about 4 hours on it. I could feel it going faster than most pages I attempt to ink. I think it is because Silvestri pencils are so kinetic and full of life and movement that I was unable to be my super controlled, stiff self. I was really able to loosen up. Getting the fur of the tiger right was I think, the most consious effort I put into this one. The rest just kind of felt natural.

All in all, this was tons of fun and it loosened me up. I'm ready to get back to my assignments tomorrow and really get down on it!
