Hawkman Crypt Battle - Inking by JMan-3H Hawkman Crypt Battle - Inking by JMan-3H
This piece shows how I go about inking my work. I'll make a copy of the original pencils using non-photo blueline color selected on the copier, onto 2 or 3-ply bristol depending on what the machine can handle. The ink is a mixture of 2/3 Higgins Black Magic and 1/3 Koh-i-nor rapidograph india ink. The Higgins is real fluid, while the Koh-i-nor has a real sharp sheen and blackness I like. A Hunts #2 crowquill is all that is used. I'll go through 3-5 nibs per inking usually. Joe Weems, BATT, Danny Miki, and Scott Williams are my main inking influences.

The Hawkman costume design is my own, pulling from egyptian/roman/fantasy elements.

I noticed the note about being made with KIN products, which is awesome because I love this piece. If you'd be interested in sharing other work with us we'd love to see it, we have a Facebook page, www.facebook.com/kohinoorusa and we always enjoy artists posting their work!

Higgins also has a page (very cool that you used both by the way!) www.facebook.com/higginsinks

It's so good to see good inking technique. Been a long time, just got myself a set of speedball nibs to do inking again.

Seriously, wow!! If you did the art for Hawkman, I would definitely be interested. Just wondering, but do u work at DC comics? If not u should definitely submit some of your work. :D

Zoikes! Not really a Hawkman fan, but this just looks *bleeping* amazing! If DC had a Hawkman series with you on pencils (and inks), I would most certainly be on board.
