My Comic Book: Issue 3 page 18 inks

Page 18 is done!

A little legibility issue on the bottom 3 panels.
There's a lot of detail and reverse color fills of the black lines going on in the last set of 3 panels, that some readability is being compromised. I think I can solve it by lightening up the black in the background, some simple color work and maybe even coloring the fill of the blacks in the background. In any case, I'm moving on from this page and onto the next one.

There's a few bits throughout this issue that I need to address with another pass, but I want to maintain my output, so I'm sacrificing the finishes for now. When I go back for the color and the lettering pass that's when I start going back into the problem areas.

My Comic Book: Issue 3 Pages 16 and 17

I got the double page spread inked up finally. I have quite a few things going on in these pages (as usual), so I'm probably going to rely on coloring to help me bring focus back to this page (yet again). I'm hoping the middle of the spread doesn't get too smooshed together when it appears in printed form. It was a little tricky trying to space out the words so they don't get gobbled up by the binding. I'm still not sure if it'll work.

Return O. da M.A.C.!

I loved O.M.A.C. when I was a kid. It was just so fantastical and out there, with some totally impossible sci-fi concepts that blew my mind. It still is one of my favorite works by Kirby to this day. I also loved the new 52 reboot version of it by Dan Didio and Keith Giffen. Anyhow, Happy Friday everyone!

The fastest man Alive!

I'm still working on an inking style I like and my control over it, which line widths to go with and how fine a feathering line I want. I'm having a lot of fun doing this quick sketches and loosening up the way I ink.

Green Lantern's light!

More quick sketching. I actually lost the first sketch I did of this, since my computer crashed. But doing it the second time went by really fast! I want to get looser with my inking process, so it was actually nice to have lost that initial sketch. It really forced me to be quicker the second time around.

P.S. I just got the Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern on Blu ray recently. And while a lot of geeks will look at me funny, I have to say, it wasn't as bad as people were making it out to be. If anything, it's quite true to the comics! It was fun and even though I initially was turned off by the costume, it's actually quite cool looking!
