INKING TO DEATH

So, as I've said in the previous post, I'm inking Spider Clan now and it is time consuming. Probably because i'm not the worlds greatest inker, and I'm moving into alien teritory with the spoted blacks. It's tough, because I see one thing in my head, but after an entire day of inking, it's so hard to know if I even came close. I spend so much time just inking lines, that when i step back, i'm not sure if it is what I wanted, or just what happened.

Oh well, it's done now, or at least a few pages are. So, here are the first few pages of the long awaited return of Spiderman: Legend of the Spider Clan.

enjoy

This is gonna be great! I love how these pages look inked! It's amazing! Those spot blacks really add dimension to your work. Now I need an original page for my collection!

It is everytime different what you have in your had - do it in pencil, and than in the ink station it looks different - harder - not so soft like pencils.personal i miss the deep in the inks stadion, but the colors will help a lot. Especial the last page looks "flat" for me. I know i will pick up this title :)

These look great Skottie! I can't wait to see it colored. I am sure the spotted blacks are fine, a lot better than mine (don't know how helpful that is, since I suck!).

Work looks excellent, i was a big fan of the original spider-clan book, and can't wait to see how this one turns out, the sandman redesign is one of the best i've seen, keep it up, and hopefully talk them into making this book into a few more mini's

Amazing work, Bro!! I love the new direction, It's like a cross between yours and Chris Bachalo's stuff. Can't wait to see the finished story! Keep up the incredible work!!

Goddamn, Skottie... I didn't think these could get any better. Your lines and inks are sick as hell.

I've said it before, but I love the Sandman and Jack'o'Lantern designs, and they're so much more prominant now.
