Today's deviation is the line art to my CATWOMAN 64 cover. Pencil & ink on Strathmore 300 board, cold-press, probably about 12" X 18". I ink with a Scharff no. 4 watercolor brush, and do all the hatching and techinical stuff with a Rapidograph technical pen.

I'll post the color version next. I added thinsg like the snow in the coloring stage, and threw in a few bats because I thought it added some action to a static shot.

I was shooting for a sense of altitude and freezing cold in this one. Nothing special, just a pin-up.

This is my favorite cover of any comic period, it's just an all around great piece. It's really cool to see the line art for it.

The cool thing about your page here at Deviantart, is that you explain your method and tell us what you use to do it.

I reckon. The artist using them is what makes the difference

Great detail, great inks. I love the eyes, it's kind of catchy details you end loving.

Actually, I prefer this black and white version. It seems that a lot of this superb line work was lost in dark colors.

One of the subtle things that makes a big difference is how the lines for the clock stop short of impacting Catwoman's face. Little things like that are simple ways of cleaning up an image and making the figure pop. It's soooo nice to see the details of the hatching in there...

Thanks, Adam!
