Yep...this is more like painted over instead of the usual coloring over Lee´s lines (leaving them untouched) but I like seeing some other "takes" on dLee´s (and other great artists') works, gives you a different perspective on them
totally, it is nice to see how other inkers etc approach him. I wonder if he ever flips out at people whose inks he doesn't like... " why don't you go work on spawn! they need their pencils screwed up more than mine!"
LOL! I guess he does, that´s why he plays it safe and (almost) always gets Williams to ink him. He pr'bly flipped many 'till he found the right one! I´m still laughing at that "Spawn" line of yours! LOL
I was just thinking that because I'm a big fan of Mike Turner and for like the first part of his career he worked with this inker who was just sick, but I guess he really didn't like him, which is why he started working with some other guy for all those covers he did...
I'd imagine if I was lee's inker I'd just go over his pencils with a black marker. Don't take no chances!
haha Yeah! Both Lee and Turner have an amazing style and it must not be easy for inkers to work on them or for them to find the right one. Even when Lee inks his own work, it doesn´t look as cool and polished as William´s inks.
I think that's usually the challenge when you're working over someone else's pencils - I think its actually the thing I find the most difficult. Painting is easy. Trying to paint something and make it look like what was underneath it is the hard part... Like I said, it looks awesome, and I love those old Jim stories, so just keep at it!!
And thanks for the kind words -- you're doing amazing stuff with zbrush!
