I started creating this piece for a silent auction being held at the Bubonicon Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention. Here are the finished inks. I decided not to enter it, but continued to finish it. The original drawing was on a 24″x19″ 2 ply Bristol board paper. The next step was inking it. I’ve seen a lot of great comic artists use a grey wash in their inkings, so I wanted to try that. I also added some movement lines in the background of the main panel. I used a 102 nib pen and a brush to ink it. In the past I’ve focused on digital inking, but lately I’ve been enjoying inking by hand. Once I finished inking this piece titled: Renegade. I framed it and hung it on my wall. I’m proud that this piece and I had a lot of fun working on it.
