    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.

    Wow, great to read your explanations and I love your ink brushwork.

    Would it be selfish to ask you to do a whole comic book in oils?

    Wow! Nice variety of work here. I wish I had criticisms, but I can only think of nice things. The black and white inking stands out as my favorites.

    Here's another entire page from the Dead Rider that will not be in the final miniseries.

    The page was done early in the project's life, so there's all sorts of "meaningless" ink strokes flying around. By meaningless strokes, I mean those strokes that don't concisely describe the character of the object being depicted. These kinds of strokes are almost always either wasted effort or detrimental to the work.

    See that witch's head? That is the drawing to the right, which I created to replace what is under there which shall remain buried!

    I think you can see the big difference in the inking between the add on witch's face and the rest of the page.

    A trio of "Rubenesque" nudes from the model. 10 minutes on the first two, maybe five on the last one.

    This is a rare photograph of the "Salon Viking". He is just out from Kornak's Beauty Spa in Maldobia, just north of Cimmeria. His hair was treated with Conan #5 beauty oil treatment and he uses Cleopatra Brand teeth whitening paste with Nile Essence™ pearl cream. His horns are made from synthetic materials and his metal helmet was forged by Johnny's Manly Forge Factory in Chelsea, NY.

    Oil on canvas.
