A buddy of mine asked me the other day, if I did inks on any of my drawings. The answer was a definite no. The lines have to be too perfect and I don't have a super steady hand. Besides that, I never had any ambitions of being an inker for comics. Funny enough, I think you can learn an aweful lot by inking(or cleaning up) another artists work. That said, I don't do it and so I end up being a slow learner. I chose The Thing to try my first digital ink job. I figured that his texture allows for a more forgiving line and therefore it was less intimidating to take a shot at. Let me know what you folks think.

This is becoming a regular thing. This is my relax time so it's been cool to just sit and enjoy drawing for myself. Had a great 65th birthday party for my Mom this afternoon with the whole clan. It's always great to get together with the family and have a few laughs. A truly wonderful group of people that I'm glad to have as my family.

Because he's cool, that's why. So there I am, late on a Saturday night trying to do a sketch and thinking that I'm kinda likin' it. Then I step back from it for a second and realize...crap. I've pinched most of the pose from someone else's drawing. Earlier in the day I had been looking at a Ken Lashley drawing from his blog. So, I gotta give the credit to the big guy for this one. He's a phenomenal talent whose work I have the greatest admiration for. Check out his blog link if you're reading this. I still like this Wolverine though. Hope anyone else that looks at it likes it too.

I haven't posted for over a month and I was politely reminded of that fact yesterday. So here's a new post and I'll try to do a bit more in the coming weeks. I'm back to life drawing again and have a few drawings that I can put up. Nothing to scream about as I don't think that I'm hitting any of these out of the park.
