Frank-Cho Hulk pencil ink

People ask me how tight I pencil before I ink my art. The answer is: My pencils are loose. Very loose. In many ways, it’s more of a breakdown than pencils.
That’s why I don’t use and can’t use inkers. I do half my drawing during the inking phase.

Here’s an example of my pencil art and the ink art from the upcoming Hulk #9.
Note the changes I made during the inking process.

Many of you don’t know that I do lot of commercial work on the side – namely movie storyboards, concept art, script writing, gallery painting and now toy art.

This year, I had the good fortune and pleasure of working for Hasbro, illustrating the package art for their upcoming Marvel toy line. It was a fascinating and delightful experience, which I could do more in the future.

Here are couple of Wolverine art that I screwed up on. They were rejected simply that it didn’t fit on their specially designed package box.
