Gary, beautiful work as always. That you can emulate the subtle brush work that made me fall in love with Dave's work makes me appreciate your talent even more. Can you provide a methodology for your recreations? What is your process? I would love to know!
Thanks, Pat! I make a high res copy of the original, and then lightbox it with pencil onto bristol board. Then comes the hard part: using the copy of the original as my guide, I mimic the ink lines with my brush (line for line) trying to emulate everything the original artist has done. No special tricks, just hard work!
Thanks, Gary! Good to know. Remember the wizard contest to ink a panel, to win...I forget what first place was. I still have my third place signed copy of your book. That and Essential X-men Volume 2 are always with in easy reach of my drawing table.
