Old Joe Quesada Wolverine...
Joe Quesada is one of my favorite comic book artists of all time. I've inked quite a few of his stuff and running out! I found this online and thought to myself "I'll never find pencils for this so why should that stop me from inking it anyway?" So what I did was blow that sucker up (with decent quality) and lightboxed the whole thing in pencil (without depth, just thin lines) and added my own style to it. To be honest I don't like it that much but I haven't inked in some time. I found some old Wizard magazine covers that Quesada did and I thought those would look really great in black and white. SO I'll be doing those soon enough. I've been inking for about 13 years and have been drawing all my life so I got some experince with it but any C&C is welcomed. I'll post some other stuff up on another thread.

That's a really interesting approach(and very good thinking in terms of working around not having pencils).
I think you have some really good line variation but Wolvie's hands seem to blend into his body (not sure if I'm phrasing this correctly - they don't stand out as if they're closer to the reader, due to the thin line around them).
Thanks for the kind words. I figured since it's hard to get copies of original pencils of the pieces I WANT to ink, they are damn near impossible to get. I just use that technique. It takes long but its worth the work.

It's a confusing piece but not the artist. I can read Graffitti so this is a piece of cake.
Thanks for the comments. I'll try to work on that when I do it again. Since Todd McFarlane is one of my favorite inker's, I think I might incorporate his style into the next one. We'll see. It's all for fun anyway.
