This was the other entry for the OHOTMU that I was hired to ink. To contrast my textural grim&gritty inks over Sal’s grim&gritty pencils on Deathlok, I inked Patrick’s piece with brush as slickly as I could to reflect consistently with Bud Larosa’s clean inks on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN where this character was appearing.
UPDATE 3/17/06: This art will now be used as an entry in the upcoming MARVEL LEGACY: THE 1990s HANDBOOK with full credit- although it did take me 2 hours to ‘clean up’ the image for print use…I only had an 8-year old, clunky copier. Perhaps there’s still hope that ‘Deathlok’ and ‘Champion’ will find a home one day. Thanks to Jeff Christiansen and Jeff Youngquist.
