Dragon Lady Inks 2.0 by devgear Dragon Lady Inks 2.0 by devgear
As most may know, I absolutely love Kenneth Rocafort's art...he probably was the biggest influence in shaping my inking.

I have learned a lot since I started down this road...so am interested in revisiting previous work I have done. I always have enjoyed this one. It is available on his blog...
I had inked this a year ago with a crowquill here:

The first time it was a 30min ink, this time around it was about 45min. with a .3 Staedtler pen and brush for weight.
This was the last of my good pens, but it was still pretty mashed up, so the thinner lines I was hoping to create still ended up a bit thick.
It was never up for hi-res, so this version is!
Download for 300dpi *Please read my terms of use* Thanks!
She is begging for someone to color her!;)

I can see a progression in your work. Your style was already distinctive and good and you are getting better all the time.

much better! especially in the face, when you calm down on the amount of lines used to construct the face, it makes people look younger and more symmetrical, especially women.

Nice, man. Rocafort builds up shapes in such an offbeat way. You seem to be getting pretty fluid with the style.

Thanks bro! Ya he does, I think that's why I need to keep his work as part of my inking diet;)

I think her eyes (and eye brows) came out better this time around, though I like the dragon candle of the previous version.

I was thinking the exact same thing. My pen this time was to mashed from use to give me the clean smaller line I was looking for on the details.
