Client Jeff experimented with this assignment and he asked artist Scott “Shade” Jones to create a 5-part sequential story done all in splashes (full page images). Commissions #25-29 from Jeff to me, I was hired to ink these 11X17 pieces on various-ply boards. My guess is that She-Hulk is putting the seductive moves on Namor and in the end she pops her top. Jeff giggled via email saying “I guess that’s up to a point of view”. These images were fairly straght-forward and I inked them with brush, markers & Pitt brush marker. And I slightly reshaped Jennifer’s brow section of her skull in 2 shots. Part one was completed on 4//11/2006 and the rest on 5/10/2006.
