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 you're bound to find some solid gold! He's well noted for his renditions of Conan, which is maybe 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 quite 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.
