This was definitely a fun page to ink. Paulo Siquera is a fantastic artist, and is not at all ambiguous about his lines and their weights. There was very little opportunity for interpretation on my part; just a chance to show good draftsmanship. I tried to tighten the feathering on the hair to give it a more desirable look and add a few loose strands to break up WW’s hair mass.
The cross hatching…was a challenge, to put it lightly. I admittedly hate doing cross hatching, because I can’t make it look like pros like Wade von Grawbadger, Jay Leisten, or others. It’s pretty frustrating. I decided on doing Paulo’s pages to challenge myself to do better, since he does a lot of cross hatching for atmospheric effects. I’ve got to do it until I like it.
Either way, this was a VERY fun page to work on. On to the next one!
