I just got a great ink sketch of FUSIONMAN, a character from my ATTACK OF THE SUPERMONSTERS comic, by MARK RUDOLPH. This guy is the REAL DEAL! His comics are what comics should be. Superbly crafted, well written works of art that communicate with the reader. I really dig his comics and they're worth reading and definitely worth buying! I know, 'cause I did! I just can't get over how good this guy is!

Here's the rough pencils to a comic page as well as final pencils to another page. The "Roughs" are intended to be loose to capture the elusive "gesture" of a page while the "Finals" are intended to provide just enough info for the inker(Me) to Finish the page, BUT not so much info that my inks lose Their gesture. I've heard rumblings in the comics industry about how some people feel that inkers are not an essential part of comics construction(JUst adjust levels of pencils and use them instead of finished inks... What the freakin'/??). I don't buy it, or rather I don't Sell it.
Anyways, for what it's worth...
