Jim Lee: Wonder Woman with JLA by boysicat
Jim Lee: Wonder Woman with JLA
It's been awhile since I posted something here and it's been awhile since my last Jim Lee piece. Jim Lee's work is still a huge challenge and I honestly think it won't get any easier for me. Thanks for checking out my inks!

Philip Tan: Annihilus by boysicat
Philip Tan: Annihilus
Here's another Philip Tan's work. I like inking his pencils because it's not too tight that I feel like I need to follow every line he made.

Diego Bernard: Unity #19 Cover
Since it's out already, I guess I can now post this cover. I enjoyed my days inking Diego Bernard's work at Valiant Comics, unfortunately my style didn't work with his and the quality of my work dwindled... and Valiant had to let me go. Oh well, lesson learned. Still thankful for the shot though. I hope Valiant fans will enjoy this piece!

Terry Dodson: Aquaman with Mermaids Inks by boysicat
Terry Dodson: Aquaman with Mermaids Inks
This is the first time I inked a Terry Dodson work. It seemed simple when I looked at it first but I find it quite challenging to ink his work. I started this one a couple of years ago, I think, with a brush and just finished it off with a quill a couple of days ago.

Batman/Superman Recreation: Jae Lee by boysicat
Batman/Superman Recreation: Jae Lee
Before I finish this pencils to inks, my question is... am I doing a recreation or just ripping of Jae Lee's work? I'm not really clear about the difference between the two. I've a seen a lot artists "recreate" an artwork by just copying the work in their own style, and sign the work with their name, then with the word "after" just before the artist's name whom they copied it from. Then there's Roy Lichtenstein's work which I thought were recreations, but now a lot of people are saying that he was just ripping off other artist's work? So how do I classify this "recreation" that I'm doing? I'm just asking because I don't want Jae Lee to crucify me because he saw that I sold this piece for $100. 

So what's your take? Please let me know so I could finish this if I'm not being a fucking douche bag. Thanks!

Yes, that's THE Scott Williams... if you don't know him I guess you don't care much about comic books. Or if you're into comic books and you still don't know him, then you don't care much for my profession either as an inker. This photo was taken at the NYCC '09, after my brother made him critique my work. I would say that that was the highlight of my life... so far.

I've been a Scott Williams fan since the day I picked up X-Men #1. Growing up as an aspiring inker, he's the man to be! I've always thought I'm not good enough since my work is not compatible with certain pencilers. But talking to him gave me a renewed perspective that an inker is the best tool a penciler can ever have... only if the penciler is compatible with your style of inking. (Actually, Sandra Hope said a similar statement to me.)

That's it. A little something about myself. Hope you enjoy my gallery! :-)

Scott Williams is on the left. <Just Kidding!> I'm the skinny, hairless Filipino--yes, the guy on the left with the boyish good looks.

The basics would be to draw everyday and draw various things. Start improving how you draw anatomy and I'm not talking about just muscular and super sexy type of anatomy. Draw a more realistic type for starters, that would be easier too anyway. Don't concentrate on your line quality because that will come naturally once you start to improve. Take art classes, sometime colleges have an open class where even kids who don't go there can come to learn. Like I said that's the very basic. Good luck and thanks for the kind words.
