Ink Study


I decided to sharpen my inking techniques and what better way than to study from one of the masters: John Buscema. Probably the quintessential Marvel guy, he's responsible for loads of work in the early marvel days and has worked on all the major characters.. just look him up online and youre bound to find some solid gold! He's well noted for his renditions of Conan, maybe thats why i enjoy his stuff so much, i really dont know..
I used a brush pen called Pentel pocket brush on this piece and it seems to work quite well. It has its own ink cartridge so theres no need to keep dipping. I'm still tempted to give the sable brush a shot though.. theres nothing like the real thing.
Anyways I'm by no means trying to pass this off as my own, its merely a study and I'd like to give proper credit where its due. Hope you like it.

Cool Ztoical! Yeah my friend lent me one of his 8 ball comics.. it was super funny and weird. The inking was pretty solid now that i look back at it.

Yep simon, the brush work is tough, but a lot easier if you have something to copy! Cheers.

Roxy, Jay and Anikey, Thank you!

I can appreciate what you tried to do with this peice and Big John's inking isn't easy to duplicate.
Although you tried to mimic the actual inked drawing of John's you are lacking in the vitality that makes John's work John's!!!He inks every body part differently than the next and he starts with the outlines followed by the shading which is nicely enclosed by the line work...try and get some of his sketch prints and ink his pencil's...you will find that it makes a world of difference trying to communicate wht lines go where.
I personally use a sable hair for all of my work and cannot think of a better tool.
