Koba inks by JosephLSilver
Koba inks
Another movie villain, this time Koba from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The inks here are a bit of an experiment if I'm being honest. I've sort of worked in the framework of a central theme deriving from my biggest inking influences (John Totleben, Berni Wrightson, Franklin Booth, Joseph Clement Coll, Gustave Dore and the like) but I fell like i should have tried a more steady approach. Fortunately I have my pencils in hi res to try it again. I just feel the technique didn't do the pencils the service I wanted to. I often find myself of 2 different minds when I'm doing both.

I have a couple other ideas, but I may move away from the villain theme at least for now to explore other interests. 

Inked entirely with a W+N series 7 #2 brush and Holbein ink.

The process video is below.…

My observation on a major current trend in comics:…
Short version: Bills need to be paid, work is coming in VERY slowly and Patreon is not really doing much at this point. So to that end I have a down and dirty deal on commissions:

Pencil: $40

Ink: $45

Wash: $55

I still have originals of many of the pics I've demoed if people are interested. Feel free to respond here or note me.

And here's the next villain on the docket: Koba from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Both a fine film and an even better cautionary tale about apes with guns.

I'll be working on the ink videos soon.
