Here’s another artist that I’d never inked before and another thrill! The board was ‘Al Rio’ art board and, unfortunately, like some other boards I’ve worked on, it wasn’t 100% receptive to marker (which obviously rules out quill usage which, thankfully, I didn’t need to use) so I was careful so as to not cause bleeding from the paper fibers. I approached the image with my usual palette of brush and marker and added in some black fingerprints into the bellowing smoke & fire. This 11X17 image was completed on 10/28/03.
