GO! Baby,GO!

Here are more samples I promised to show you all. These are on the more cartoony side of my inking samples. These are from Todd Naucks run on Teen Titans Go! Like I had stated before, I wanted a range of ink samples to show my flexability. Believe it or not these almost caused more stress than the more complexed comic pages. To properly and cleanly ink cartoon work it really takes a strong concentrated effort. The lines have to add more to the characters in the absence of value and heavy blacks. I will probably continue to try and ink a wider range of samples to excercise my abilities. And when I do I will be sure to post up what I have here. But I do have even more samples that I will post up soon. Those will be more in the line of covers. Plus I have a couple of sketches waiting in the wings to post as well. Until then hope you all enoy!

SDCC ink samples '08

Here are a couple of ink samples from this years portfolio. This first set is from Amazing Spiderman penciled by Mike Deodato. The other sets will follow in progression through the next couple of weeks. I tried to choose a range of pencil samples to ink for this year. I figured with a nice array of samples I could appeal to a larger list of companies, and there for might get a better response. Well I don't think it worked. But I am not too worried about it. I do have a number of projects waiting in the wings for me after I finish up this second book for Viper. So here are the first set. Hope you all like them. If there is any critiques, I would love to hear from you all.
Thanks again.

Sketch cards

In the last post I showed pics of Matt and I doing sketch cards for people at SDCC. Well here is a small sampling of some of the cards. It was a lot of fun to work on these together. Although Matt could hammer out two for every one I did, it made for some great quick inking practice. Most of theses images are characters from Wonderdog inc. But the one in the bottom row is clearly the top of the Human Torch's head. Matt had a great time doing some extreme close ups of some of his favorite Marvel characters. We did have requests for a couple of DC characters, but they tended to be full head shots. Unfortunately we didn't get pics of any of those. These turned out to be a great way to promote the book and get our names out a little more. Plus the chance to meet and talk with comic book fans was incredible. I wanna make sure to say thanks to Scott for putting them together for us and getting them printed. They made our signing times alot more entertaining.
