Here's a glimpse into my process for those who like that sort of thing.

5 minutes in: Finished really rough pencils. Thought it was cool enough to go ahead and ink.

10 minutes in: Finished all the outlines and little details with a marker. Absolutely hated it and nearly threw it out since it looked really bland and kind of like a coloring book.

15 minutes in: Decided to add a little more black... and dragged my hand through the wet ink>:(

16 minutes in: Started adding MORE black.

35 minutes in: Ended up looking better than it started. That's really all I can hope for.

And after I let the last of the ink dry (so as not to smear again) I touched up a couple of spots...and we're done! Clocking in at maybe 40 minutes, I think. The next one'll be a lot quicker but I just couldn't NOT draw all of Nightwing's costume. For my money his is one of the best costumes to come out of the '80s.
