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.

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...
