I really enjoyed inking the strange creature (this came out of JB's mind?)

Some nice work here. "It's a good life if you don't weaken." My hands are pretty much shot, I have trouble just typing sometimes when they're really bad. Good luck with your surgery and recovery Marc, and nice coloring!

Nice job, Mark! Very clean lines. How are you posting without losing some of the clarity? When I reduce resolution to post mine here, I lose some of the sharpness of the original and it looks slightly blurry (That could be because I'm using old-school pen on vellum overlay instead of computer inking).

I took a month off of inking, but finally got back to the table today because of the snow. Finished this page up. Going down to 600 pixels wide takes out a lot of detail, but you get the idea I think of the finished  image.

Eric - that is super-nice! Coming in out of the snow to ink a thunderstorm page - you must be craving some warmth.

Paul, I am losing tons of detail on these when I reduce! It's been a process to get used to, for sure.

Mine are all inked on an iPad Pro with Procreate. It really affords a lot of opportunity to "get things right" when I mess up a line. But that means it takes a while, too.

My process would certainly not be aligned with JB's story of Kirby being told he wasn't paid to erase! Even worse, it's with inks!

Oliver, love it! Love the bold lines, and the definition you gave the background.

It is really interesting seeing multiple hands inking these pages.

Hair can be tricky. If evey strand is the same line weight you need to be very precise with what strands are grouped when inking. See Art Adams for great examples. When you vary line weights in hair they need to flow together and in the same direction. Strands that are next to each other, but following slightly different directions spoil the illusion you are trying to achieve.

After a few hours of working, I was able to complete the inks and colors on Thing, was really fun! Feedback and advice is much appreciated.

One thing I would say in terms of criticism, Dan, is that JB's pencils had more detail in the Thing's eye. As far as I can see at this resolution, the eyeball has been lost in the inking.

Thanks for the feedback Peter, I see where youre coming from. Its hard to see because of the poor resolution, but there was some detail in the eye, less on the inked version. It was a bit challenging though, as I wanted Thing to be looking up, so I drew his pupil very small. After lowering the resolution, his eyes just look blank.

Dan is right, the Thing needs some color!

I suspected it might just be a resolution thing, Dan. With all my comments, bear in mind I am far from an expert or even a reliable authority, but I would say first it's worth bearing in mind that the art is designed to be reduced for print, so ink accordingly. Second, in terms of interpreting what the penciller has done, there is of course plenty of areas for interpretation (and I say this with direct reference to your comment about wanting him to look up ), but I would try and follow as closely as possible whatever the penciller has done when it comes to the eyes. I don't think that is an area with much (if any) scope for interpretation. That's my two-penneth, but I am not a pro...

Overall, I like both what you and Oliver have done inking the Thing. Some interesting contrast in your styles.
