shaunbutler86 asked: How much preparation do you have to do, before you get to inking the final copy for a comic book page?
not much. inking is the stage I need to think the least. and I usually do it at the end of the day when my head is getting tired. and why I prefer to do pencils and layouts at he beginning of the day.
for inks, I just pick the brush or pen and start somewhere. put some music. drink coke zero. a few hours later the page is inked :)
boxingmarco asked: What ink and brushes do you use?
from my site’s FAQ:
Q. What kind of tools do you use to draw?
A. It changes every now and then. Lately, I’ve been using a regular mech pencil with 0.5 HB lead.
Kneded eraser to clean my lines. Whatever hard eraser to really erase when needed.
For the inks I use mostly a Winsor&Newton (series 7, size 000) brush, the rechargeable Kuretake brush pen for thicker (and awesome) lines and whatever old brush for cool textures.
I’m still trying to find the perfect white ink/acrylic.
And I use Micron pens for straight lines.
And whatever black ink. Right now, Dr. Ph. Martin’s Black Star.

this has been my wallpaper for more than a year now. JM’s work is amazing.

Nadia: This is an original character by my requester and I was told to do my own spin on her original costuming and such. I tried to keep her very contemporary, so there’s a lot of XO Yonce up in there. Too much? Never enough? You tell me. Hopefully, my requester is happy with the changes.
Doctor Strange: Mr. Steven here is decked out in his original costume as well, with small tweaks here and there. I don’t know if any of you have picked up, but I definitely favor a side parted cape opposed to the more traditional middle part. I think it’s a subtle way to switch up the cape game - there, I said it. I originally wanted to go more epic with the background, but then I realized there just wasn’t the time. Everyone keeps asking why he looks so worried or sad. And my answer is…why not?
Wonder Woman & The Mad Hatter: This was a really fun request and other than wanting WW and Hatter, there were no parameters. Oh, well, she wanted traditional looking WW. The concept was basically that this would be a piece to bridge two collections/interests between the requester and her better half. I decided it would be cute to have them sipping tea together. Spilling the T, if you will. I tried to make WW look more tanned and Grecian and I should have gone more olive in her complexion. But I’m really happy with her hair, which I think reads more wild, Amazonian goddess. Oh, and her gold came out nicely and I don’t know how that happened. For the Hatter, I had difficulty staying away from the Depp version so I did all I could do avoid his color schemes and such. I kinda like his Asian-ish face.
