Nice job on both Rude AND King Kirby! You did a really nice job keeping Kirby's particular energy, something a lot of inkers can't do with his stuff.

It isn't the inkers job to improve the pencils, The inker should be invisible as much as possible. Just interpret the pencilers line and be true to the original pencils.

Thanks for the kind words -- and thanks to those with criticisms as well. All appreciated. Now if I could just get some paying work...

Here is an Alex Toth page:

eh...I don't know if that's 100% true 100% of the time. your POINT is correct, that they need to stay true to the pencils, but some guys pencil SO rough, it demands that the inker clarify and add appropriate detail and such.

Greg Capullo is a very rough penciler and his inker has to interpret a lot.

but the inks shown here, over Toth and Kirby and Rude, I think DO fall under the umbrella of "stay invisible" like you mention. tho Toths stuff looks like it needs SOME interpretation.

either way, to the INKER of these pages posted... you seem to do fantastic work.
forgive me if you said this somewhere..do you do digital or traditional?
it kinda looks like both in some places.

Entirely traditional (ink on paper). I wouldn't begin to know how to draw with a computer. I have a small (4x6"?) Wacom tablet which I occasionally use for cleaning up the white areas outside of panels, but that's it.

You're my kinda inker, Blip! Old school traditional! When I do get the opportunity to do a little ink work (which isn't often these days), I still use my crowquills, technical pens, brushes and good old India ink, usually on translucent vellum. Inking by hand, IMHO, puts more YOU into the work than digital inking, kinda like the difference between CDs and LPs or the difference between a car with a clutch or an automatic. Give me traditional anytime!

also, have you ever tried inking over Chris Sprouse pencils? he has a nice clean slick beautiful style that would seem to fit with your stuff very well..

Yes, from my Deviant page:









These are maybe a year old... if I inked them now I'd try a more organic approach.

Those are super nice inks over Sprouse, Blip. Maintains all the integrity of the pencils, but adds a nuance of your own, as well. Rob's got a great idea; I'd love to see you ink some of the folks who post on these very boards....!
