The above drawing is the first of three collaborative pieces that will be posted up this week. This particular piece is a collaboration between myself and my roommate and fellow comic artist TJ Nasti.
TJ gave me what you see on the left and I proceeded to finish it in ink.
TJ has a really unique inking style and like myself, he really only uses one tool when embellishing his pencil lines. Where I choose to use a brush, TJ chooses to use a .005 pen and he gets some CRAZY lines/detail/and texture into his work.
When TJ handed me his pencils, I couldn't WAIT to put my unique spin on things and I think the results are pretty successful.
For those not in the know, this is Boba Fett in the belly of the Sarlacc that he falls into at the end of Return of the Jedi. In books that followed the movie, Boba Fett escapes the Sarlacc and lives to fight another day.
Some may bemoan the lack of hard black and there's a reason for that. I'm going to begin finishing this in color today and I'll have the final thing posted up tomorrow with any luck.
If not, I'll either have my drawing (as inked by Young Soap aka the Scrubbler aka Schuyler Huber) or Schuyler's drawing as inked by TJ posted up.
