This will also likely end up as a comic cover in the near future as well!
As most of my followers/fans know, I don't often do digital color, but how I approach inking on artwork dictates how color will be done. Traditional comic book inking is India ink with brush or pen, and effect/corrections with white paint. Markers or paint can reactivate the ink and smear it, or have adverse reaction to the white paint, so digital is the simplest approach in this case. Check out some of my copic marker pieces for how I approach inking there.

Is all the inking done by brush ... ??, well, I have not done it like that for a long time, lately what I use is a Drawing Pen for that: the brush has the merit of the flexibility of the stroke ... but I am a lover of drawing with a pen .
AND WHAT DID SPIKE DO TO RARITY !?, that little one should know how dangerous a Raging Unicorn is.
More seriously, Bravissimo!
