Superman Unchained 2 cover, out tomorrow by INKIST Superman Unchained 2 cover, out tomorrow by INKIST
Pencils by Jim Lee, inks by me. Almost all crowquill pen work, except for the rocks in the foreground which is brush. The tank treads took some time.

The drawing and inks are spectacular. Not to mention TWO LENGEND working on the page. It looks dramatic just like a comic book page should look like.

Are you back at using the Hunt 102's or are these the Gillott crowquills? BTW, the ones you used back in the X-Men days, were they the blue ones?
Reply
:iconinkist:
INKIST Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013
Meant to say that this was inked with the 102's.  The Gillotts I referenced were from the Xmen days.

:iconinkist:
INKIST Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013
Yeah, I used the Gillott 850's the blue ones.  They were great, when I could get them.  I don't think the new ones are as good.

BerolEagle Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013
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.

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!
