Been a while since I've posted here but I'm really happy with the way this one turned out. Randy Green did the pencils for this cover and I had to try it out.

I used a Hunt 102 nib and an XS Pitt pen for some stuff.

well as far as i can see...your inks look pretty damn killer.

the only thing thats distracting to me, and its not your fault(im guessing) is the added detail on her girl bits there. like..is that really needed? dont get me wrong, i love the sexy art stuff and do it all the time, but this just doesnt make sense. and again, not you, so...why am i going on and on about it.


so i do have a question for you...you say you use traditional tool to ink with. this image looks really slick and nice.
if you have half a second, can you explain(in newby terms since im so new to photoshop) how you clean up and save your files like this? cause this looks so slick.


either way...very nice work sir

Hahahahahahaha you mean the cameltoe she has goin on there? XD

Thank you very much! It's really simple actually. In reality I try to keep my page as clean as possible while I'm inking so that when I DO scan it in all I have to worry about is the blue lines. Instead of typing out the entire process I will direct you to my YouTube video where I demonstrate how I do it. :D

Thanks for the tutorial on YouTube... I usually use a blue pencil method from Jonathan Glapion and clean it up in Photoshop.
