I started this one as an experiment in Inking after a conversation with my buddy Egg Embry, the idea was to blue line a photo and then ink it without having to worry about 'fixing' my pencils so that way I could just focus on line widths and values and all. It was a neat little exercise and I figured this being the last post of 2010 I would let the good Capatin wave me out. I wish you all a very happy, safe and prosperous New Year! Cheers!

Man, the possibilities...

And because you are already a superb draftsman, I would not have even known this was over a photo.

What would be interesting is one of your drawn figures over a blue-lined reference photo.

I think you're on to something, Fred. 2011 is going to be the next level for you.

Happy New Year, sir!


Thanks Brutha!

Sean Phillips does some of that which is where I first got the idea to try something like that, he has a real interesting process. Definitely worth checking out.
