Met Mike Lilly at NYCC in Artist's Alley. Really nice guy. Didn't get a chance to show him my stuff, but I did say I would ink something of his and post it, so here it is.

Wonderfull inkwork, i'd love to see the original too, to see how it changed...

Apologies for not responding sooner, working on pages. When I can find the original pencils I can do a side by side or something.

Very kind of you. It was a different style to adapt to, so it was fun to just dive in.

Never heard of a Mike Lily before, but this dude's art is fierce! Does he have a dA page? I love how your inks are "sharper" and "scratchier" for lack of better words on these lines. :)

Here's Mike's DA page:

And I made different decisions with these inks including a bit of dry brushing and playing it a little looser in the finish to flow with the style. It's not something I do a lot, but an inker always needs more stuff to put in his arsenal and such...

Thanks for the link--he's really quite good.

Well, the new tricks are definitely work. Great work :clap:
