I've inked the whole issue over Leandro Oliveira's pencils. Here's a picture of what happens to the comp copies when there's too much time on my hands.
This issue focuses on Lois Lane. Here's a splash page with her.
Lots of hair to ink especially with Lois Lane.
A habit I have while inking hair is to hold my breath. Thinking that it'll steady my body and hands to give it a much smoother/slicker line. It's not really necessary to hold my breath. Just a habit I developed. With this issue, there was a LOT of hair! So much, I decided to create a collage of all the hair to illustrate how much. By the time I finished this issue, I think I can hold my breath for minutes on end. Become a deep sea diver or preform under water escape tricks.
Lots of hair, yes? On top of that, a huge amount of tapered inking techniques.
There's even more hair in this issue that I didn't include in the collage. Like the pages below with Superman and Lois Lane.
Below you'll see a black backround next to black hair. To avoid both blacks meshing together, I added a white line in between. This separates the two blacks and pop the figures away from the background.
Superman's so smooth! He definitely knows how to sweep a girl off her feet. *Swoosh*
Superman 704 is in stores now.
