Another page I went back and worked on. I had to fix a few things that bugged me the first time. Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only one who can see the differences but at least it puts my mind at ease!

Very nice Paul.  You make me wish I were a better inker!

Another one I decided to go back, clean up and make changes. I sure get a kick out of Byrne's sci-fi characters. Seems so effortless

Drifting thru to add a small note of caution. Some of you, inking the Thing, are rounding off his skin plates, bringing in a cobblestone effect. Many inkers do this, but the look I go for is the sharp edges of a dry riverbed.

...taking JB's priceless tips to heart and re-visiting one of my Thing pages.
(great way to reference description so I can grasp the idea!). 
I tried to sharpen and flatten those plates as much as I could but still a little cobblestone-y. If I were to start from scratch, I think I could implement the technique a bit better. I might have to try again on a new page. I did get a chance to revise some other things though. for me, one of the best ways to learn to improve is revisiting previous work with fresh eyes to see what i could have been done better.

A great Wolverine intrigue page with lots of different textures - a great way for an inker to learn his craft!
I think I'm finally getting some of the subtle nuances of inking (after more studying of the greats).
Also, whoever claims John Byrne doesn't draw backgrounds - let alone highly detailed backgrounds - is out of their F'n mind!
