        That is very tight, it has a J. Scott Campbell feel to it.

          That's what I get out of Web-Head's style too, a very Campbell/Turner (RIP) inspiration. Guys I really like.

            Super tight pencils... maybe not bothering to ink type pencils. I hope you post a finished colored version.

              Very nice pencils and detail. I would like to have seen a more dynamic pose since she looks kind of stiff, but is is a great drawing. Good stuff.

                Cheers for the comments guys! Yea, Turner and campbell have been big influeces among others. I'm a big fan of Silvestri, Ebas, Finch and the general 'Top Cow' style.

                I hear what you're saying a bout the pose, Scott blocker I kinda saw this as more of a character study as i intend to do a full pinup with background for AIX at some time in the future... this is good practice tho for now tho

                Thanks again... any other comments/ crits are welcome!

                  Updated this thread by uploading the inks to the first post. There’s also details about how to get a hi-res version of the file and the colouring comp I’m holding for this on my Deviantart Page so be sure to check that out.

                  Comment crits (particularly on the inking) would be appreciated. I’m finding that I’m getting quite a lot of ‘bleed’ with the pens and Bristol board I’m using so advice on better equipment would be great!

                  It’s difficult to find supplies in the UK but this is what I’m using at the mo.....
                  Windsor & Newton Bristol Board 115lBS/ 250gsm (like this http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/productd...talogue=242562 )
                  Rotring Xonox Graphic Pens 0.1, 0.2 & 0.3 (like this http://www.cultpens.com/acatalog/rotring_Xonox.html )
                  I could really also do with some white paint/ ink eraser but have no idea what to use!!

                  Any advice appreciated.

                  Cheers

                    if you want to get that difference in line weight that a brush gives you...the only brush the pro inkers swear by is the Winsor Newton series 7 brushes. I use a #2

                    Expensive real hair sable brush but worth every penny. As long as you keep the tip from splitting you can lay down a line that is as thin as a strand of hair. After tons of use the hair tip will eventually split. Don't throw it out though, because it makes a great dry brush.

                    I swear by this art store online. Great selection and great prices: Art Supply Warehouse

                      For white paint to cover inking mistakes I use Pro White:

                      http://op3.triadinet.com/artsupply/nlcatalog.asp

                      You have to ad a tad of water and stir each time you use it, because it contains an awful lot of pigment...but it covers well

                        Awesome! thanks for the info guys.... I've tried brushes before tho and to be honest i was terrible with them. If anyone knows of a better set of pens than what I'm using that'd be really helpful!?

                          I swear by the Hunt 102 crow-quill pen for inking. When laying down ink you have to be carefull because the ink takes longer to dry because you control to amount of ink you are laying down by how much pressure you use. Takes a bit if time to get used to but once you learn how to control it you'll love it.

                            For inking brushes I would go with Winsor Newton Series 7 Red Sable Hair #3. They may be expensive but they are worth it.
