While I am insanely busy with finishing both the 12th issue of "The Wellkeeper" and drawing "Carpe Noctem" for Hashtag Studios, every now and again, I need to put the pages aside and relax.
What's weird, of course, is that for ME I relax by drawing some MORE. In this case, just inking. I LOVE the process of inking. It's the closest I can get to meditation and it clears my head a lot. So tonight I decided to just unplug my brain and pull out one of the blue line pencils from Gary Martin's excellent "Art of Comic Book Inking". In this case, a particularly organic and loose Conan page from the master, John Buscema!
I'm not inking this for anything other than practice and relaxation and had a lot of fun just trying to interpret his forms and add my own touch to the page. I don't know if I'll ever bother finishing this, but figured it would be fun to share.
For the inkers out there wondering, this is 95% inked with a Pentel Stylo drawing pen. (I LOVE the wonderful, crowquill like line I can get with it.) The woman's hair is with a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen. Love those things.
