I find it hard to see that anyone would care about this sort of thing...
is a section of the most recent work I did over George Perez - for
issue 6 of the Brave and The Bold. As an inker for George you stand on
the shoulder of a giant - so you think you're 500 feet tall, but
really, the view is just what George sees all the time.
Here's a half page of pencils-
here they are after I monkeyed around with them. I'm sure a little bit
of my own personality comes through in the inks, but I try and keep any
deviations of style and excentricities to a minimum.
very familair with George's work, having studied his art for over 3
decades, honestly closer than any other artist I've ever known (with
the exception of myself) - so I try and ink him like I've seen him ink
himself. My favorite work of his was when the Teen Titans shifted over
to the Baxter format and he inked himself on the first few issues and a
lightbulb went off in my head and I thought "Oh, THIS must be what he
wanted the whole time."
I liked how George had a different face,
hair shape and body shape for each of the Challengers of the Unknown
and I tried to keep that dynamic as clear as possible, evern when their
heads were turned away from the viewer.
I'm not very good at
describing what it is I do - I've been inking for over 30 years, 15 of
them professionally, so it's really just second nature to me now -and
as a result a complete mystery. A "just do it" sort of thing.
