More Ink than you’d Think

Lately, I’ve had a couple of folks inquire about how I work. What do I do digitally, what do I do analog, what am I smoking… you get my drift. The simple answer is “Analog until Color…(but not always). I’ve recently posted  a quick video of how I typically work in pencil but the video got cut off just as I was laying down the ink. So…with a new commission in my hands with instructions to “Have fun and be Irreverent” I figured it’d be a good time to show myself inking in more detail than you’d see in THIS post. I set up the iPad to record and captured the following. Enjoy! (To get a good look, go full-screen and turn the resolution up to 1080)

If you’re REALLY a glutton for punishment, I have the thing captured in real-time. The whole thing took about a half an hour. Here’s that one:
