As you have already saved my rendition of Grant Moon's piece in your favorites along with Grant Moon's original piece as well you will know that I originally didn't do the pencil work on it. I have to say thank you for the comment and the compliment. With all the pieces I work on I try to stay as close to the original but still had a slight touch of my own on them.
Yes, I only saw the original pencil after my comment and I liked them both - especially because of what you said: thopugh it is close to the original yet you added yopur own inking style with different way of inking. I liked the original because as well this one and even though usually I only like to fav one version of the same thing I liked very well both of them So yes, I really like and find it interesting how you can add your own style. I wouldn't be able, especially I don't really have my own style, or at least I have kind of more styles and would be slip to more like just.."trace down" the original piece with my inking. All in all, really cool and after seeing the original I like it even more. ^^
I have been inking for almost 15 years but haven't developed my own style until the last 6 months. I have heard that it takes some artists a long time to develop their own unique style so it is not surprising that it took me some time too. Thanks for the comment
Yeah I learned to ink by watching my father work on some of the blue prints for pipes in the refinery that he worked at and also watched him do blue prints and floor plans for houses that he designed as an architect. From there I observed things around me and then picked up some books and I was able to ink a lot better. Although when I started this year on doing comic book covers my inking took a different route and it looks cleaner and sharper than what I was doing before.
