Sequentially inking Jim Lee

Sequentially inking Jim Lee

I wanted to ink test Jim Lee, but on his sequentials. This is one page of his Superman Unchained comic.

I am not totally fond of this piece however it confirms that inking Jim Lee is not easy. Not because of the spectacularity of his pencils, but the depth and wide range of lines. It seems that he pencils fast, but that way of pencilling is translated into inks in a very complex way. Jim Lee turns a outer line with a wide range of thickness that it’s an intrigue to translate into a clear printable line.

Done using mostly quills. Hunt 102, I love you

You can check this piece out on my Deviantart portfolio.
