Just saw this Paul. Excellent improvement!

A Joe Kubert tip I saw on a YouTube video is that shadows link objects together in space.  

I think our eyes love shadows in art.

Now that comment about shadows will forever be embedded in my brain (:

Agreed! Nice job!

That Al Williamson page is so detailed, I wonder how it looked on newsprint back in the day?

Thanks guys! I have engrained that shadows trait into my brain henceforth!
That Al Williamson page is incredible - and got me to seek out more of his work which is stellar! I wasn't much into his work in the past as a nave kid - a regret.
Funny how so many artists back then put in full effort with detail knowing it wasn't going to be reproduced on the best paper format.

There's an interesting linage of artists that flows from the very first days of newspaper comic, and in particular Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon, through the a second generation cohort at EC comics that included Wally Wood, Frank Frazetta, Roy Krenkel, and Al Williamson---and eventually a third through the Madison Avenue ad world (which included Neal Adams).

An interest think I never appreciated is how famous, influential, and wealthy those early newspaper artists (Hal Foster, Raymond & Milt Caniff) were and how that rippled down through the decades.

As a younger man, I never really appreciated the talent on display in the newspaper comics, and looked down my nose at it from the loft perspective of superhero mags (i.e. Marvel/DC).

Going back now and looking at for example, Frazetta's Tarzan ink-drawings, I now view them as close to the pinnacle of black & white fantasy art.  Insanely good brush work!  Those tapered ends & atmospheric perspective fades!

It's been fun tracing the genealogy of the genre.

Looking at Darren's inked page makes me think (far from the first time): boy does JB draw a great Iron Man!

Loved JB and JR Jr's short run on Iron Man, but wish we'd had a year or two of JB on script and art as well.
