ART ADAMS Slave Leia recreation by SKY-BOY ART ADAMS Slave Leia recreation by SKY-BOY
The more I study Art’s work, the more I appreciate how sophisticated his cross-hatching is, and how much he uses Franklin Booth techniques. Art is in a league by himself!

I recreated this piece with brush and india ink on 11x17 bristol.

You should be the only inker allowed to touch Art Adam's work. EVER. I've never seen his stuff look this good!

Im enjoying this Art Adams ecreation pieces alot!.
It's always interesting.....to hear other inkers observations.  I was thinking Joseph clement Cole.
You are right...Art is on a league all his own.  You did an amazing accurate approximation...w/out your name on it...it would have been hard..to see it!

This is without a doubt the best looking Art Adams inking job I have ever seen. I mean, as great as Art is, I think you really accomplished the goal of a great inker here. The piece is so Art Adams but pushed to the max. Absolutely beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing this with the community.

You brought so much to this. Inked by your hand, the (emotional) tone of the drawing has changed for me.

Thanks! Art's inking technique is hard to mimic. So my tendencies kick in a bit.

Not gonna argue with you on Adams's crosshatching, but I don't see a lot of Booth in there. One thing I always admired about Booth was that he used patches of lines as if they were brushstrokes, defining shape, value, and contour all at the same time. I love Adams's work tremendously, but I don't see him doing that sort of thing.

There's not a lot of Booth, but if you look close, it's there.
