ADAM HUGHES Tomb Raider/Magdalena recreation by SKY-BOY ADAM HUGHES Tomb Raider/Magdalena recreation by SKY-BOY
This recreation of an Adam Hughes piece required me to imitate the most delicate cross-hatching and feathering I've ever done!
Brush and india ink on 11x17 bristol.

I have not seen the original, but I admire Adam Hughes art and your inking here is superb, such fine line hatching. I am still just as impressed by the copying though - that cannot be easy either.

Thanks! None of the process is easy. But mimicking the ink lines is always a challenge!

I remember doing one a long time ago - a friend wanted an MOKF cover by Gulacy, for his home gym, I did a BIG careful copy, then inked it and coloured it, he was happy with it. I do enjoy drawing my own stuff but it is a different pleasure to copy art you admire, and sometimes more relaxing.

Just curious, what do you mean by recreation? Adam didn't really draw this or just partially or something else? Thanks!

I'm just really amazed by your work.

Thanks! A recreation is a copy of another original piece (in this case, Adan Hughes) duplicating line for line.

I'm curious though--not sure if I've asked this before--but why do you do, or why are you being commissioned to do so many recreations? Sorry if this is a bad question to ask, but with your skill I'd definitely commission you to do an original!

My clients are original art collectors who don't want to pay five figures for the high end originals I recreate, so they commission me to do a close reproduction at a fraction of the cost. I guess it's the next best thing to owning the original. :)

I've seen Adam say that no one really can ink his stuff like he himself does.But, then, there's you out there...No quills on the hatching?
