My inks over a Gene Colan sketch of Dracula



Gabriel Hardman and Kevin Mellon have recently taken a crack at inking the above pencil sketch of Dracula by the great Gene Colan. After seeing their takes on inking his impressionistic pencils I just couldn't help but try my hand at inking it too. :D

My inks didn't turn out quite like I had expected but it was an interesting exercise just the same.

Just awesome, Chris!

Yeah, brilliant job. It's you, but with the right approach within your style to suit Colan's unique pencils

Great work. Enhancing Gene's work without overpowering it like many inkers do.

Great job, Chris! Colan's a tough one to ink, eh? What tools did you use with this?
