    Here's yet another panel that isn't going to make the final. This was drawn in pencil, inked, scanned and then painted in Painter.

    I like the desolate spirit to it. The way I was going to correct the horse anatomy was by putting a dialogue balloon over it.

    Here's an entire page from The Dead Rider that isn't going to make the cut, even though I like the mood of it very much. It isn't finished, but its close. I just couldn't fit it into the story. Sigh. I did this to myself a lot on this mini series.

    So here it is, without dialogue...

    P.S. I reserve the right to change my mind and use this page in the final.

    Jim, tough to find a great book on inking. Although I hear the one from Dark Horse was pretty good. But besides looking at the masters (Frazetta, Wrightson, Joseph Clement Coll, Franklin Booth, Sienkiewicz, Mignola, etc.) I would also copy over George Bridgman's anatomy books into your notebooks (Frazetta did this, Norman Rockwell studied with Bridgman personally) and take some oil painting classes and paint from the model. Learning how to paint is the best way to learn how to ink because you need to see beyond the ink lines to what's really happening with the form. Ink strokes are just a decorative way of rendering form. Form is the foundation.

    --------

    Another quick oil painting. A skull in a cardboard box. Don't ask me why.

    I happened to snap the pencils for this incomplete pen, brush and ink drawing from the Dead Rider. I'm going to work on it a little more and see if I can pull the ink job out of the tailspin it's in.

    It's at points like this in a drawing that you begin to wonder whether continuing the drawing is worth it. The Dead Rider looks kind of goofy, knock-kneed and weak-chinned, and what was nice about the pencils have been obliterated by my heavy handed ink silhouetting of leaves that don't look like leaves, and that branch in front of him looks like Dr. Seuss drew it!

    RULE NUMBER ONE: If you go to the ink stage with incomplete pencils, you should be sure your inking brush is ready to pick up the baton and run with it!

    Thinking about stategy: One of the major things I'm noticing is that the shadow areas don't link up. Also, the blacks sit near the bottom too much, weighing down the design, the eyes have no highlights, the branch needs a quick peek at some reference. some of the leaves need to be made to look like something other than brushed ink strokes, etc, etc... I could go on....

    Anyway, here it is... I'll get back to work on it soon and post the results.
