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.
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.
