HANK PORTER Disney recreation by SKY-BOY HANK PORTER Disney recreation by SKY-BOY
This is a commissioned recreation of the great Disney artist, Hank Porter, originally done in 1938.  

Needless to say, this one pushed me to my artistic limits. One of the reasons why I love doing these, is the appreciation I gain of the original artist, because of the intense recreation process. Hank Porter was amazing! He produced ink lines on this piece that I simply wasn’t able to figure out. I did the best I could, but Hank was in a league of his own! 

Brush and india ink on 16x20 bristol.

wow amazing! I think you got a lot more contrast and depth in your version which makes it look much better. I agree that Hank had some amazing lines but yours make for better textures. Your inking is absolutely amazing.

Okay, you do outstanding work, no doubt, but the original blew me away. Never saw art by him before, have to check it out.

Whoa! This is incredible! This is mind blowing. I see what you mean now about "not meant for color" - with so much crosshatching and ink shading there really is no need for color. This piece is perfect just the way it is (and you know if a colorist says it looks perfect as a black and white, she means it! heheh). Amazing work, Gary!

It's too good not to stare.  Even the backgrounds took me away.  The 'halos' on the tree branch to create snow on top the the perfectly basketing background. Then the rendering on the trees that create dept and form.  And lets not forget the light and shadows casted from the lanterns and candles.  Simply and truly amazing work, my friend.
