Am I the only one who's getting a Gustave Dore feel from this? It has a lot of the same mood and feel of his religious art (to say nothing of the KING KONG matte paintings based on said art).

The only way this could ever be any better than this is if Bernie did it himself. Simply amazing!

Holy crap.
BRUSH???? Damn, I would've thought nibs would be the way to approach this. Absolutely astounding. This really captures Wrightson's mood and lines.

Thanks! I never really got the nib thing under control. Thus the brush.

I have a love/hate relationship with nibs, it's such a battle to find the one to do what I want- but they can have nice texture. I'm meeting Bernie this weekend, and I certainly aim to pick his brain.

What type of brush are you using? And for that matter, what ink? I've been using a mix of Dr martin's High Carb and Matte, but I'm not 100% on it

My brush is the Raphael 8408 #3, and Blick Black Cat india ink.

I'm a Raphael man myself, #4! Nothing seems as high a quality to me.

I'll have to give the Black Cat ink a shot!

This reminds of an engraving, with such controlled greys. The one on the right is..a combo of pencil & ink or all ink?
