About Me

Arthur Adams

Here is another Art Adams page. I love working on his stuff not only because he is my hero and a god among men in the comic book world but I learn something about drawing with every page of his that I ink. Texture, form, composition and pacing are a few of the thing touched on in the lesson from this page.

Ivan Reis

Here are couple of amazing pages from Ivan Reis. I purposely picked these pages to round out the portfolio I am putting together to be reviewed at the Wonder Con coming up. It's been about fifteen years since I've had a portfolio review in person. So this is gonna be a sort of new experience. I'm hoping my work will speak for itself so that I will not have to speak much. I think these pages shout out for themselves.

I tried out a thinner line when attacking these pages. I figured it would help me capture the subtle nuances that Ivan put into the faces. Capture the facial gestures in "quiet" pages like these can make or break the page. I love the way it turned out. I also swithced from Micron Pigma markers to the Copic Multiliners and there was a huge difference in line quality. I think I found my new weapon of choice.
