It’s been a while since I did one of these intense ink pieces. (My “Breaking In My Pens” pieces.) These really test my patience and the steadiness of my drawing hand. But once the lines are drawn just right, the eyes blend the black and white lines into dazzling gray tones.
(Hell, if my comic book gig ever dries up, I guess I have a second career as an engraver.)
This is a study for a cover that I’m doing for Marvel. I’m still working out the ink line tonal efffects but I’m happy with the overall composition. I’ll post the finished art once Marvel releases the cover image officially.
