I started to comment on some of your inking posted in another forum thread, first, that I came across earlier, this morning. But, since this is a more recent effort, perhaps this is a better place to start.

I will preface my comments about your inking by saying that I just adore the inking stage of comic book artwork. As a medium, in and of itself, it can often be the equivalent of eye candy meets visual impact on steroids. Truly great inked comic book art is just some really delicious stuff. No doubt about it.

That said, please understand that I have viewed relatively little of your inked handiwork, thus far. So, the opinion that I am forming of you as an inker is still in a state of relative infancy.

Some of your inked work is damned good. I won't hesitate to say that. But, while none of the inked artwork that you have rendered, and which I have seen, is terrible, there remains, nonetheless, a lot of inconsistency to your inking.

In the first image in this thread, the one with the abundance of panels in it, your inking loses the majority of the energy that the penciler has imbued the underlying artwork with.

That is not to say, however, that your finished inked image looks bad. It doesn't. You already possess a sufficient bare minimum level of inking skill to all but ensure that none of your inked pieces look bad.

When inked, the image should pop with a capital "P" - POP!!

The bottom image, the one with the character flying near a planet, in the close up of him, your inking greatly adds to the visual imagery of that character in that particular scene. The motion effect adds to the scene's overall value, to be sure, but it is the character, himself, who benefits the most. That's a very powerful image, and your inking imbued the character with more power than the penciler's attempt at the same. That character pops! He's just plain gorgeous. He looks menacing, somber, and exudes power.

The fourth image, the one where the two male characters are engaged in combat, for the page as a whole, your inking proved to be a mixed bag. On the characters, themselves, your inking proves to be a visual bane. Too much ink! Ack!! They don't look bad, but they are a far cry from that character in the bottom image.

Yet, in that very same fourth image, in the final panel of it, just take a look at all of those stunningly beautiful lines that collectively comprise the energy manifested from the wielding of super powers, where the victim is thrust backwards off into the distance. That effect, your inking of it, really caught my eye.

All too often, inkers let the ink get away from them, and go heavy more times than they should not. That's been my somewhat limited experience in viewing the craft, anyway.

To be an inker, you - and not the colorists of the world - are the dividing point between visual impact and blah. Colorists make things pretty, to be certain, and they are the icing on the cake. But, the inking is where the dynamic qualities of the overall piece take true form. If the inker fails, then the end result can ultimately only be just so good.

In all fairness, maybe that is true, to a certain degree, for all stages of comic book artwork. However, I believe that it is more true for inking than for any other single stage of the art process.
