View Full Version : Andy Kubert - Batman, Son Of The Demon cover/sketch.
This is a quick thing I did over the image that was released with the DC solicitations for August. Just a little sumthin'-sumthin' to let you people know I'm still alive and inking (Getting a few things published soon-ish. I'll let you know, so you can order multiple copies ;).
Andy Kubert's pencils:
and my inks:
Done in about 30 minutes, then I spent an additional 30 minutes tinkering with it.
Any and all critques and comments are welcome.

Good to see your still throwing the black around Boy...
This here kinda took me off guard when I first saw it, It`s soo Stark and strong, which are both good things, The only section that kinda dosen`t sit right with me is the whole section of his neck and the side of his head, I can see what you`ve done, but I think it may need some liberties to clarify what`s going on there, and maybe a touch of hatching on his cheek to soften that up some....Just my opinion though....
All in, I likes your work.

Looks really digital.
My only complaint is that you should have fixed the arm. It's a bit too wide.

Nicely done! I feel his hand is a little washy though around the thumb and forefinger.

TOO digital. Raz,,,pick up a brush and quill sometime man. I totally appreciate all the crits you have given me, but this thing completely lacks "life" which is common with digi inks.

I like it. Has a sort of David Mazzuchelli (I KNOW I just butchered the man's name, sorry.) / Frank Miller feel 2 it.
If I could comment on something, perhaps a bit of delicate feathering to add to the rendering a bit?
Taking a cue from mecha, a bit more details on the gloves/fingers would add more to it. U've got the basic sense of it, though.
All in support, my friend. :)
Rotin: I totally agree with that neck thing. I thought about doing some hatching/feathering there, but I really wanted to keep it stark/bold/plain ol' black and white only.
J'amal: Right after the hooks, right? I gotta fix that. And is the "looks really digital" a bad thing...?
Mecha: Totally agree. Not sure how to fix it without losing the Sin City like look (I think) Kubert were going for, though.
If I had the cash for it, belive me, I'd try the brush. But as is, I'm too poor.
Lebeau: I think you spelt it right, actually. Yeah, I was going for sort of a Sin City look with it. Same reason I didn't do any feathering or anything on it. Straight up black and white. I might just fix that hand/arm...
I really appreciate all these critques & comments, anyone else?

For me, the digital look distracts from the art itself.

i like the pencils a lot...a lot of power here which get lost in the ink / imo/..i think the inks needs some more shadows/hatches, i know you wanted it in this way / just my thought.
