I went nuts with the inking today, inspired by a bunch of blogs I was looking at ranging from Scott C to J Bone by way of Graham Annable. You'll notice I was inking on top of blue colerase pencil, which I've been loving. To the extent that I think I'm going to need to start doing that always, as it would probably improve my comic work no end. ANYWAY, to the sketches:
Up first is Ben Grimm once more, saying 'shorts', although it looks like it should be 'shirts'. Ah well. Also his chest is brought to you today by P Mondrian.
Eric Powell's The Goon, so surprised in the second half of the drawing that his hat has disappeared! Oh my! And since I felt I was developing something of a theme:
Some tuff guise! You'll notice an uninked Hellboy in the middle there, which is because it's rubbish and I didn't want to. I am, however, very proud of the right-hand Hulk. He's class.
Here we go. Ever seen This Island Earth? Well, there's your man with the big head and that, accompanied by arbitrary Stan Lee quotation. And because I thought things were going a bit dude-centric all of a sudden:
Lauren Bacall, ladies and gentlemen, with a lame joke stuck on as an excuse for drawing a fit woman out of the 40s and getting all fancy with the hair there.
Some satirical whatsit about the post-Iggy-Pop ideal male form. You see these sods, stalking about on their freaky stilt legs and you think 'what the hell is holding them up'? Eat parody, you emo junkies.
