Thanks Mark, you are very kind. This is all digital. I Created an "Austin-like" brush in Photoshop & Wanted to test it out. Learned some valuable lessons here.

Man Byrne and Austin have such an iconic look!

Their styles, individually seem quite far apart but it just worked! Two fabulous artists.

I wanted to see something akin to Austin inking some of these beautiful pages that John has produced. My clumsy impersonation was the best I could do.

edit. 'akin' not 'skin'

**

I could tell- and I think it's a good estimation if I understand you correctly.

To my eye, the Byrne/Austin team already started to shift out of the look they had together on X-Men by the time they teamed up again on a Fantastic Four back-up story. I think that was within a year or so. I found, by that time, I preferred John Byrne's inks.

Even though I've escaped that debbil nostalgia enough to see how much JB's drawing has improved, there's *something* special in those Byrne/Austin X-Men pages that I respond to. You seem to be finding it here -- without (imho) the kind of "Austin-isms" that come from forcing it.

I agree with your observations about inking between the Xmen and FF. I too preferred John's own hand for the inks.

wow, this is excellent! I had not been to the forum in a while since Stan passed away. This is like a re-birth. Exceptional work everyone!

And I finished another page today. Panel three is a HUGE challenge for a novice inker.

Eric,

Congratulations for your Modok's page, as good as the previous ones.

For page 2, panels 1 and 3 : challenge successful !!
Maybe a small issue with Lillandra's nose in panel 4 : sphinx syndrome ?

Sebastien, when reducing the images from 400 dpi to 72 and compressing the image to be no wider than 600 pixels there tends to be a bit of distortion, but my that is definitely my mistake on Lilandra's nose. Thanks for the kind words!
