Beneath The Inks

As promised, here are the pencils to the recent MARVELMAN and MARVELWOMAN commission.

    Are the stars in the ink version gauche on top of ink? And for the figures, do you use a nib or brush? Also, this will be my last question, did you use any references for the figures? It’s awesome to see inks and pencils back to back.

    Stars are Pro-White, which is a sort of bottled gauche, I think. Figures mostly done in #3 brush. Facial features and a few details done with a croquille.

    I based MIRACLEWOMAN’s pose on a photo in “The Figure In Motion” from Watson-Guptill. MIRACLEMAN’s chest and arm came from a photo in a dance book. The rest I came up with.

    And the energy crackle around the figures was done with a Speedball B5 1/2.

    Thanks for the info. Awesome stuff as always.
