Cover for Ray Harryhausen's Jason and The Argonauts: The Kingdom of Hades #1
I ink for this penciller a lot, but I'm trying to refine my lines a bit more so that I don't have to use super-heavy weights to get depth when I do. I still have to work on that...
Pencils by Dawid F. Strauss
There is a slightly larger version with the pencils and inks side by side posted here in my DeviantArt gallery (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/49698319/).

Your inks never cease to amaze. Seem as though Strauss has a thing for Joe Mad. That foreshortening is....wild. The light spattering over the ship added quite a bit for the seaspray and the tiny litle extra hathings inside his sleeve give better deapth to the area. Well done.

Watch out for your lightsources. The penciller has put some funky lineweights all over the place, and you've done well to mostly ignore them- especially since you've worked with him before.
In addition to thickening lineweights simply to indicate depth, however, make sure you vary them according to lightsources. I'm looking in particular at the big head on the left- according to the shadow under the chin/jaw, there's light coming from the upper left, yet this is where you've got the thickest lines on his head. I would've thinned that out and thickened up the right side (facing us- it's actually his left), including the ear, under the ear, and his neck, which gets lost in the sail in the background.
That upper-left lightsource actually applies to the entire image, it seems, and again- watch your thicks and thins. The bow of the ship, the mast, Jason's (or whoever the central figure is) head- your lineweights are playing against the lightsource almost across the board.
You've got nice strokes and the such...it's just time to fine-tune things a bit to really put your work over the top. :)
