Another good page, Paul.

One little thing I'd point out is in the fourth panel, you've inked in a number of feint construction lines on the AIM stooge's drapery which don't really work (upper arm and knee).

Thanks Peter - I'm not afraid to try some things to see what works and what doesn't

Really nice work on Modok's craggy face.

I love your linework. And the result remains unmistakably JB.
Well done.

Thanks Peter- I was really trying to find a good balance of dark and light with that side of his face.
Thanks Athanasios!

Elsewhen p. 23
For a page that I thought would be one of the easiest to ink, this one was a bit of a challenge.

With this page I just thought, screw it- I'm going to play around with some textures and experiment and just have some fun.

I love it Paul.  I would suggest for the flora in the bottom panel to create some interesting shadow shapes to separate foreground, middle and background.

Here's an example in B&W by Al Williamson:

Thanks, Steven! That's the one area I was hung up on. I would darken foreground lines but still couldn't get that separation. I needed some shadows!
Also thanks for the perfect reference image. I have to go back and give it another attempt. I'll post when done.

Here 'tis. Last panel re-touched. I'm happier with it. Thanks again for that feedback!
