Several weeks of inking…. final commission of Joker and Harley! The solid blacks in Harley really brought the inking to life on this piece!
Archive for Pen & Ink
I just wrapped up all 14 of these- lots of fun using a marker on a tight schedule with a huge variety of subjects, from “Call of Cthulhu” to “Full Metal Jacket”!
I used a lighter inking style 3 for Valkyries, Flying Horses, and Huginn and Muninn the Ravens of Odin. I wanted to keep this piece lighter and more ethereal with less blacks.
GUNSTAR ONE Taking on the Ko-Dan Armada as Commander Kril watches on! Final inks were complex on the machinery and ships as well as the alien Kril, but of the entire piece the explosions were the hardest part to pull off.
So here are the final inks for my “Brundlefly” commission/pinup.
I am continuing a stylistic experiment in my inking with more large areas of black to build out my detailed areas- this is another step in that process.
I am really happy with the blacks highlighting the telepod chamber and the creature’s lit anatomy. Overall, I think the final product turned out very well as a completed pen and ink.
I really went dark on this one and let my solid blacks build the forms to highlight the more detailed areas. I give you JUDGE DEATH!!
“THE CRIME IS LIFE, THE SENTENCE IS DEATH!!”
Judge Death, Mysterio and Black Canary filled my docket for Baltimore this year, and Judge Death is getting the full ink treatment for a client – Ill update that as a separate entry when done!
“There has been too much violence. Too much pain. But I have an honorable compromise. Just walk away. Give me your pump, the oil, the gasoline, and the whole compound, and I’ll spare your lives. Just walk away and we’ll give you a safe passageway in the wastelands. Just walk away and there will be an end to the horror.” – THE LORD HUMUNGUS
The final inks really brought out all the elements of this pinup, one major fix from the pencils was getting the anatomy on Humungus’s left arm fixed. So without further fanfare- MAD MAX 2…
This turned out exactly how I wanted it with minimal shading and bold lights in a field of darkness- the third eye sets off Bill Hicks face and gave it the otherworldly look It needed.
Prying open my third eye. x 10 with Bill Hicks indeed…
And a related bit of music from the Band TOOL about Bill Hicks entitled of course “THIRD EYE” … Listen here.
