DOCTOR STRANGE Commission by LostonWallace DOCTOR STRANGE Commission by LostonWallace
It's been a little while since I've posted, but I'm back to adding more work to my DA gallery!  This one is a recent DOCTOR STRANGE commission that I completed for a client.  It features Doctor Strange, Clea, the Defenders, and a host of other characters from the comics.  Can you name them all?  I bet all the True Believers can!  Anyway this was drawn on 11x17 bristol board using superblack india ink, a Raphael Kolinsky Red Sable inking brush, a couple of artist's pens, and a piece of old tube sock dipped in ink added textures to the background.  I then did some traditional stippling (Virgil Finlay style!) to create a more mystic and atmospheric feel to the overall piece.  I hope you enjoy this commission featuring the Master of the Mystic Arts!  Faves and Comments are greatly appreciated!!  If you like this piece, be sure to let others know about it. :)

Loston, have you ever submitted any work to ImagineFX magazine? They do a few comics related issues every year and lately they've also had a traditional art section in the magazine.
It seems to me that traditional comic inking is increasingly becoming an obscure art--inking texturing techniques even more so. I think a breakdown/article/tutorial/something about the process would be of interest to a lot of people.

I certainly have a classic approach to drawing when I do my normal thing. This is a prime example of that.

By the Hairy Hosts of Hogwash, Jim Steranko would be proud!  I can see Dormamu (?), the Wise One, Submariner, the Silver Surfer, the Watcher, Wong, the Hulk (Incredible or Inedible) Valkyrie, and I can't remember the rest as it has been so long since I've read the original comic series.

Nice! That is some real classic looking 1960's-70's style Marvel inking right there.

anyone using Virgil Finlay's techniques gets mega points in my book. I see a lot of younger artists come through the comic shop where I work, and I'm always telling them to check out the work of the old masters. not just those italian guys that everyone is familiar with, but fellas like Noel Sickles, Milton Caniff, Hal Foster, Wally Wood, Bernie Wrightson, Alex Toth etc.. I always get the sense from your work that you've pulled from the best of the best. Thanks for sharing Loston!

Logan, I'm a fan of all of those comic artists.  I'm from the Alex Raymond and Hal Foster school of drawing, but I have studied Franklin Booth, Frank R. Paul, Virgil Finlay, Joseph Clement Cole, and many, many others.  Honest drawing. Time and effort in the work. Always working to do better with each piece or page.  That's just who I try to be.
