About Me

Tim Vigil

Here is another attempt to do some justice to ever great and powerful Tim Vigil. Now the pencils were not meant to be inked so I had make some decisions on how to interpret them. Hope I made the right choices. I feel pretty good about this one. I inked this with a 102 crowquill and a brush just to fill in blacks.

Jim Cheung

Here is another piece I did for the submission packet. I figured a double page spread would impressive and a double page spread by Jim Cheung would be twice as impressive. I got a few "wow that looks cool!" but no serious feeback. Still, I'm really happy with the way this turned out and it was tons of fun to ink.

David Finch

Here is a David Finch page I did for my portfolio a little while back. I was fortunate enought to get som feedback on this page from Norm Rapmund and alot of what he said I have to take with a grain of salt. For the most part everything looks crisp and clean and well done but...I did not convaey the intended feeling of the page. See, this pages is about loss and war and dirt and rubble and everything being broken. I cleaned it up and made pretty lines. He said war is not pretty. He wasn't telling me to be a "gritty" inker, just saying it's ok for thing to be not so peerfect all time. Do what's right for the page.

This was all very good feedback and it was something I had never really put any thought into. Wow. I think Ijust grew as an artist. How about that?
