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. 

Pencils by: Terry Dodson
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!

Batman: Greg Capullo by boysicat
Batman: Greg Capullo
This is the first time I inked Greg Capullo's work. There are some spots that I didn't translate well with my inks. I'll get better when ink his work some more. The original file didn't have his signature... so I put the "After Greg Capullo" signage as well (not sure if I used that signage properly).
Top Cow: Artist Jam by boysicat
Top Cow: Artist Jam
Here's my take on some of the Top Cow artists' work. It's a jam piece I believe and I got this file from Sean Elery's :iconseane: inking competition. I find it very hard to ink Top Cow artist, with the exception of David Finch and that's mainly because (maybe) I use brush instead of quill. 
Loading...… Just plugging the book I worked on with Lee Garbett. They put, Art by: Lee Garbett and Walden Wong, but if you guys check the cover and credit page, you'll see my name... so, I actually did ink half of the book. Check it out let me know what you guys think. 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.
