I was looking for some Alan Davis pencils for inking practice and stumbled upon a nice Paul Pelletier commission in Fred Chamberland's CAF gallery.

Inking still scares the s#it outta me.  Ive never ever been comfortable doing it either by pen/brush and ink or digitally.

There is an inherent danger knowing whatever line you lay down is basically permanent. Usually, as I get close to finishing a page the anxiety turns way up. The fear of dragging my hand through wet ink goes up to 11.

HA!  Thats all well and good....and understandable with conventional inking.  I still afraid to do it DIGITALLY! 😂 

Its some kind of mental block I need to overcome.  And just practice, practice, practice.  I recently inked one of JBs Elsewhen pages and it turned out pretty good.  But I agonized over every line in a way I dont do when Im just drawing.  

My admiration for good inkers has gone way up in the past few years.

Had a ton of fun redesigning the All-New/All-Different X-Men team.  The only rules were to keep the original costume color schemes...and to channel Mr. Byrne for the designs as best I could....
