Hey apologies.
I have been going through some tough personal family issues, but that really doesn't have anything to do with my account deactivation.
I've been struggling with small things related to my craft and I was having a really bad night....I did something I now regret...I deactivated my account. It wasn't hacked. It was me. I regret my decision and am so Happy that DA actually gives you the option to reactivate even tho at the time it says the action cannot be undone. Whew! I have way too much history here and am so sorry I let my small slip of judgement almost throw that all away.
Everything is please don't be too concerned for me. Although, I might not be very active here. I just feel that I need to step back a bit...I have found that I really am putting too much pressure on myself and I need to relax a bit.
So, I will be here...lurking about. I'll post things when I can. I thank everyone for their continuing support. I truly appreciate it.
I'm feeling a bit silly now, but you know, we all have to deal with our issues in our own way. I didn't handle it properly. Lesson learned. All I can say is I won't do it again. I'm just really happy I could restore my account.
I hope the resource of inks will be useful and help further each colorists ability and potential career. Feel free to color as always. Just credit and post links.

As for my family issues, my Uncle was murdered in the Philippines last week. What a huge shock and it is an overwhelming event that I never expected. It's something that we will have to deal with one day at a time. It's part of the reason that I will be taking a bit of a break.

So, again, I apologise. Keep well everyone, and I will see you soon.

devgear's Profile Picture
Hi there! Haven't updated this bio since I joined, lol!
My name is James Goodwin and am a self taught inker. I've been at it since 2008.
Currently am inking cover art for Zenescope Entertainment.
My love for the craft and almost daily practice has brought me to the level that I am at now...still learning everyday.
Check out my older inks in my gallery to see how bad I was, lol ;) But, as I mentioned, a desire to better myself and practice definitely helped!
Through my growing process, I have always made hi-res inks available for colorists to practice on. If you find my inking something you wish to use for color practice, please do :D Just be sure to see my Terms of Use below. Crediting the artist involved is very important.

Current Residence: Canada
Favourite genre of music: Bhangra beats
Favourite photographer: me....
Favourite style of art: Comic
Operating System: A quad4
MP3 player of choice: i-pod touch
Wallpaper of choice: my creations! U must see them;P


Domino Inks
Mike Henderson is coming to the Comic Expo here next week. Thought I would experiment on his art a bit.
The original was an ink wash pin-up...Had lots o fun doing this.
Colourists can download foe hi res to colour here on DA only.
High Res Wolverine
It's been awhile! I have at least 20 pages kicking scanner is out of commission. 
I used my iPhone to take a pic of this one and adjusted in PS. I didn't realize I had exported it as such a big file, lol. 
Anyways, saw this linked on SeanE 's Facebook page. Very cool Original pencils by rogercruz 
Inked pretty under 2 hours while watching, "A walk among the tombstones" I love Liam Neeson. Also was working on a six pack of beer at the same am surprised it came out not too bad ;) Not close to perfect, but was fun. Enjoy
Download for a big file.
Wonder Woman Inks
Hey guys....Yeah...I inked a page and am working on more ;)
I have my scanner packed not sure how soon I will start scanning pages.
One step at a time.
Slowly trying to find time to ink, and Caio's beautiful lines were great inspiration.
CaioMarcus-ART made the great WW pencil art of this one.
Medium format
Shooting on film is pretty much like inking traditionally... In the end you have a physical copy in your hands that you can safely file away and pull out 10 years later.
I love going back thru my inking portfolio and seeing the raw inks finished by my hand...flaws and all. 
Having negatives saved is a similar feeling for me. I've been shooting medium format film for about 14+ years. (as a hobby, as is my inking)
Anyways...just wanted to share my sentiments on the two mediums.

Hiya. I found some inks from you on some of my work. They all looks really nice. Specially the baby doll drawing!

Hi. I recently colorized Guiseppe-Cafaro's Steam using your inks of her. I put links to both your inks, you and the original artist and his pencil work. I also kept it as Fan Art. I hope you like it. Cafaro's Steam
