Can't sleep so I Inked

I'm starting to put some serious effort into learning how to use nib pens and brushes. All the line work in this was done with a nib pen and I filled in blacks with a brush. It was on tracing paper over a photocopy of this pencil drawing by Walt Simonson. Yep. I'm learnin'.

I also used white out for the first time ever on anything because I smudged a lot of wet ink around with the palm of my hand and fingers on accident. And holy crap white out is a vile substance. It's really chunky and super sticky. Since it was so thick I thought I'd mix it with water but the stuff is like the anti-water and it wouldn't mix. and when I tried to clean out the dish I was mixing them in it got all over my hands and it's super sticky and clung to my body like Venom's symbiote. I'm getting me some white ink ASAP.

Baked Potatos and Mountain Dew is a bad mixture

Here's a color of this Phil Noto drawing of The Mighty Thor. I spent too much time on it, so I decided to be done with it. I think I need to learn to paint traditionally and apply that knowledge to Photoshop. Dunno what else to say about it.

Also, I'd like to share this Meatloaf comic book ad for the Special Olympics.
