Great inks!! I really like your style, gritty and confident. My only comment would be that you seem to always ink the same way, maybe even with the same tools, no matter what pencils look like. Personally, I would approach Yu and Frank very differently, for example. Frank is clean, fluid and may work better with brush lines while Yu is busier and may look better with quill, microns, etc.

I guess we all have our style but I personally think we have to find the right balance between our way of doing things and what may work best for the page and penciller we're working on. Anyway, just my two cents, I hope it helps!

Thank you... I do preffer to do the linework with a quill, and solid blacks and some thik lines with the brush... I like more than having a perfect defined, clean line, that the line has a certain expression if you will... anyways.. I am just starting, thanks for your coments.

Juan has a great point. The pencils and the original intent of the pencil mark should come first o matter who you are inking. So take a look at the page before you put a single mark on it and ask, "what kind of ink line is the penciller indicating with his pencil?" Then take it from there. Some pages need one tool. Somee need 3. Some just need you to sneeze on them. The point is, it is not our job to impose our will on the page and overpower the pencils but to complete at realize the pencilers intended vision. That's the way I go about it anyway.

You are well on your way though. Your lines are clean and you show confidence in how you throw them. Just keep it moving forward! Great job.

It's funny.. last month I went to a convention to show my pages, and got the complete oposite coment... some pros told me that my inks seemed very diffrent one from the other, someone told me that it even looked likey they were done by diffrent inkers...mmmh!... have to find a midle ground... what I have found is that indeed sometimes the hardest part is finding the intent of the penciler like you say... anyway--- thanks for the coment.. and let's go back to the drawing board... thanks

Yeah, I guess it's all a matter of opinion. At the end of the day you have to do what feels right to you and go with it. Personally, I think the Yu piece is the best of the bunch, it really fits his style and actually, I like it better than some of the published inks I've seen in Superior or some of his Marvel stuff, for instance. 100% pro.

Keep it up and shows us more of your stuff! :)

You know what... I found out that the first page you ink from a penciler is what Vic refers to getting the intent of the penciler, I never feel satisfied with the first aproach, I found that even though I analize, and try to understand what they are doing, I only get the idea, once I sit, and start to ink... sometimes I have to mess up... but I need to get into the page.... and by the time I ink a second page... I feel more comftable, and get the idea of what the penciller is doing, and wants with the lines... the page by Yu is indeed the last one I have inked, and is the second one I have done by Yu... and it went reaaally smoth... on the other hand...I just finished a page by Philip Tan as well... the first one... and oh boy... that one was difficult... because he has a very distinctive style, and uses so many blacks, and lines, and ... well... it's complicated... was difficult, took me a lot of time... and I didn't like the end result... but was a great exercise... now I want to do a second one.. to see how it goes... thank you very much for the kind words... and let's hope some editors like my work as well... I reeeallly need a job...jajaja.... thank you.:)
