Peter sent along his inks over my pencils from earlier in the week and they're pretty great.
Peter made some nice changes in the background that I wish I would have had the foresight to include in my original pencils.
Also, his lines are a lot thicker than mine which is interesting to see as I tend to use thinner, more whispy lines when inking.
I found out this morning that I'm one of ten people picked to participate in Frank Santoro's wonderful Correspondence Course. I might be slacking a little bit on this blog as I can't be showing any of the work I'm doing for the course whilst it's going on, but hopefully I'll still be able to keep up these collaborations.
I've got a LONGGGGGGGGG night ahead of me here at work, but I should have my inks over Peter's pencils up in addition to my finished colors over his inks sometimes tomorrow.
Peter will be turning in inks over my pencils later in the week and I feel a little guilty inking my own pencils before his. However, some part of me REALLY wanted to just tear into this earlier this evening, so I did.
After my witch drawing from the other day, I've been trying to dial back my dry brush use a bit and spot solid blacks better.
I read an interview with Gary Panter earlier this evening and he spoke on blackspotting to some degree citing manga as a good example to look to.
I thought that a bit strange at first but I recalled a trade of Dragon Ball Z that I was looking at the other day and the more I thought about the pages I looked through, the more I realized what he was talking about.
This is of course going to be colored so that must also be taken into account, but I think it stands fairly well on it's own as a piece of black and white art.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for color and hopefully some in-progress inks over Peter's pencils!!!
I threw some color on my witch illustration from the other day. I wasn't too keen on the finished product at first, but it's grown on me and I'm just as happy with the original now as I am with the colored version.
Check back later for an in-progress look at my inks over Peter's pencils from earlier in the week!
