Graveyard Street Race Inks by Huwman Graveyard Street Race Inks by Huwman
I FINALLY got this commission inked. It must have taken me about 25 hours just for the inking! Am I unbelievably slow or is that normal? I'd love to hear from people who do similar stuff. The original is 17" x 14" if that makes a difference.

Scan of te pencils can be found here, if anyone is interested:

This was inked with a Raphael 8408 #3 brush and Speedball Super Black ink. I used a bit of archival marker for the lines in the hotrod grill and on the windshield but it's about 98% brush and ink.

The person who commissioned this is Mark Maia and, in addition to being an all-around cool guy and having great taste in art (obviously!), he is also a top-notch photographer. You can check out his stuff here: [link]

Just remember kids, don't street race - especially near the graveyard during a full moon!

Thanks for looking at my stuff. I really appreciate it!

Nevermind my question about vectorizing.
Nice ink.

Great work! And I'm way slower then you, inking is meditation for me :meditate:

I bought me a PentelArts Brush Pen last week, it's like a normal brush just without any hair problems. It's very good for precise inking, in fact all the stuff I've done without it looks now very amateurish to me.

Thanks! I've trued a few of the brush/marker/pens and some of 'em are pretty good for "quick and dirty" jobs but for absolute precision I always go back to the real sable brushes. Thanks for the fave, by the way!

A pleasure! Of course you know them, I must have forgotten to whom I talking to :) I just discovered them and they feel way more handy to me compared to the regular brushes. I would love to see you working, the longer I'm drawing I became aware that I missed several basics that people learnt in art-school or get taught by a mentor, it fasten up things a lot.

I had to teach myself everything too! I tried to take art in university but back then they all thought throwing paint at the canvas or painting coloured stripes was the way to go. ;)

Nice work, Huw! You ever see that Simpsons episode where they move to a new town because of Homer's work and Bart ends up in slow class? When he's asking around about how everyone ended up in there, he meets this kid who says "I'm from Canada, and they think I'm slow!" So, yeah, you're slow, but obviously it's not your fault.

We have to be slow - it's too icy to move fast! Thanks for the comments and faves.
