When I was pencilling those Roy Jones drawings the other night, I was trying to capture as much information as quickly as possible and give things a more raw look.
Looking at the drawing again today, I decided to ink it up but go about things a little differently than usual.
As I tend to pencil a little more roughly, inking tends to be about finessing my lines and adding clarity to things. For the two drawings you see above, I threw caution to the wind and inked with reckless abandon.
These both have their moments, I think I lost the likeness a bit, but careless inking is actually a LOT of fun and I'll probably try to work this kind of technique into my comics at some point.
Trying to triple post today... Be sure to check back!!!

I cracked open my copy of Jack Hamm's "Drawing the Head & Figure" (an EXCELLENT book) tonight as I hadn't brushed up on my anatomy in awhile.
Like the drawings of Roy Jones I did last night, I tried to keep things pretty spontaneous here, referencing the drawings in the book for split seconds at a time and then trying to work out the spatial relationships on the page as independently as possible.
I really enjoyed doing these so look for a few more posts like this before the week's out!!!
Before you read any further, just take a look at this.
Now, who's the GREATEST OF ALL TIME?!?!!
Honestly, I don't even know why people get in the ring with this dude, it's embarrassing. He's so quick and so powerful that you're pretty much guaranteed a rotten week if you square up with him.
I hadn't done any really RAW pencilling like this in awhile and it was a lot of fun. I'm going to make a more regular habit of it.
Might be posting up some exciting news later on and I'll definitely have one more post later today so be sure to check back!!!

The fact that I've been unable to post most of this week because I've been doing work that I can't share has been bothering me. As this is so, today I'm going to make up for it!!!
I'm going to devote a post to each step of my process for this gift that I'm working on for Mother's Day/my Dad's birthday.
Be sure to check back!
