thank you very much, i think im gonna try that. somehow my scans dont look as crisp and sharp as yours although im using bristol paper too. hope a change of paper is going to improve that a little bit...maybe there is any other aspect to think of?
This looks great Joe. I love the fact u pencilled this too, cuz your inks are already amazing. What's nice about these "unused" pieces is that they're great portfolio pieces. KInda like a "portfolio" exclusive. You should definitely try to pencil more of your work cuz this looks awesome!
I personally didn't know you had such talent with lines from scratch, yeah you've always been amazing with the inks but this way of yours is something new to me and man, what a mind blowing piece is this... I should say "whish you'd do more pencils" but I feel like good inkers like you are about to extinct (correct me if I'm wrong) since the age is going more digital day by day, so I wouldn't also want to see the industry an inker less...
Of course the techniques are sweet--I'd expect that. But the drawing is also rock solid, which is really where you separate the men from the boys. I agree with your response regarding Dan Panosian, and I'm hoping you're another guy that kills it with both your ink and your graphite.
I blame Dan Panosian and his shear awesomeness for inspiring me to get back to the pencil! Seriously that guy just stepped up like no Inker I have ever seen before and is just crushing it with his Illustrations. Thank you so much for the kind words, hopefully I'll get the chance to do more of my own cover work in the future.
In all fairness this was labeled and billed as the cover for Darkness #101. However Jeremy Haun's contract has him producing his own covers for issues 100-112, so this may see the light of day after his run or maybe as an alternate cover. Hit up the powers that be at TC!
