Hulk Ink Studies - Mr. Fixit by Challenger2008
Hulk Ink Studies - Mr. Fixit
Haven't posted in a long time, mostly crap coming off the drawing board.  Decided to get away from realistic drawing for this little project, so I could actually start & finish something in one day.  I also wanted to get back to what got me drawing in the first place; comics.  Some of the most beautiful art I've ever laid eyes on is comic art.

I've always been a very weak inker, and decided it was time to do something about it.  " Big " John Buscema is one of my favorite comic artists of all time, quite likely in my top 3. I always enjoy John's art the best when he inked himself, which he didn't do often. 

I've always found I've gravitated to artists with his drawing and inking style ( like Joe Kubert & Al Williamson ).  All 3 artists have such a solid grasp of fundamentals, and in my mind, are 3 of the best guys out there to get inspiration from.  So, I decided what better way to bone up on my inking than to learn from a master.  I used images from Wolverine 7 & 8 from 1988 to do these pics.  I did NOT trace anything.  I picked some images, I drew them, then did my level best to ape John's inking style, learning a lot in the process.( like taking my time, which is the most important thing I've learned with ink )

And for a change, I actually had a good time drawing.  No swearing, no drama, no blood or tears.  Dr. Ph. Martins ink and a #2 brush. 

No Photoshop or any other computer enhanced BS.  Pencil & ink on a page, nice & simple.

Great work , I really like the twist you add to your WWE pieces like the Brock Lesnar one.   We're looking to showcase WWE art on our site, would you be interested?

Hi! I saw your epic Godzilla art and was wondering if you take requests?

What did you have in mind?  I'm a little swamped with a project right now, but I always love hearing great new ideas.

I was hoping you could do a drawing of an original kaiju called Mitsukuyari, link below

That's a pretty cool design!  It's something I'd like to try, no promises on a completion date.  I've saved the pic and it will give me something to chip away at when I have some free time.
