And so, in no small measure, to celebrate my 4000th post I wanted to do some art that was not related to my day-to-day work. As such I started a Demon drawing but was not enjoying the direction the inks took. What I get for inking it on shoddy paper. Anyway, now that I've finished being a bad workman and blaming my tools, here's what I did:

Thanks guys, I've been lucky enough to be inspired by a wonderfu thread. So thanks to Teod for starting it up. Seeing all the great artwork here and that our host has been posting has pushed me on.

 

As far as the 4000 posts, most of it's drivel;-)

Hey Darren -- I know nothing about true "art" and I notice your blue pencil lines on the Demon -- then you inked over your blue lines - then the blue lines are completely gone...????   How do you do that?  Is it a computer trick OR is it as simple as an eraser ?   I have to scan and print my (grey) pencils to ink them 'cause I'm too afraid of screwing up the pencils.

Any pointers?

Thanks


Here's the final version of my Batman inked (but inked on 8x11 size not full 11x17 size)  PLEASE -- I am not only NOT a penciller, I am definitely NOT an inker -- I will take any critiques offered. 

THANKS

Wow, I like a lot the Demon, Darren, and congratulations for the 4000 posts!
One day I will try to draw superheroes, it's VERY hard!

John Peter, I like The Thing and Ultron (¿?I don't know if Ultron is his English name)
"That building at the back of the horse reminds me of flash gordon"... Anything that passed for my head in that moment, the post-its are very small so I can not draw much detail.

Anthony Castrillo, I like that awesome Spiderman with his foes and friends.


another three post-its more...
