Thank you for clearing that up! I've always wondered how you did the inking back then because it looked quite different from anything else I've seen, the lines are very tight but have an organic quality to them that's hard to describe.
I also use the Gillott 850, 2788 and the 170 (all blue ones), it's a shame to hear that the quality dropped, I like them but they're so fragile, even inserting on the pen holder if I twist the nib the tines will never align again. Looking at what you do now, it would be a nightmare for you to use these nibs again, the tines on most nibs don't form a point, are slightly rectangular and bend too easily hence why it was always a mystery to me how you inked those X-Men comics with these nibs.
Jim is one the artist, but it is you Sco- oh my sorry INKIST who brings the magic to life by many resond (Don't get me wrong jim is an amazing artist but when INKIST Put the ink on the pencil and the (Detils i mean come on) it makes me feel like that you to are Superman)
3 things. 1: you're by far the best inkist I've ever seen and I am a huge fan of your work! 2: this is an awesome cover and you did an outstanding job on it (and I'm not just saying that... I really mean it)! 3: I'm 99% sure you're going to say no (But it's worth a shot anyway), is there any possablity I could get a high res of this for color practice?
Thanks Mark. Still got the brush going, but some days I'm feeling the pen, some days it's the brush. I'm just trying to keep my head in the game and variety is helping keep things lively. Hope I see you at SDCC this week!
