A Comic Book Art Blog by Paolo Rivera
Hey Paolo,I was curious in knowing if you are using a cold pressed board with a bit of tooth in it, to get those nice gradients in the gas tank and that Fonzie leather jacket? Because the texture of ink with dry brush tends to be a bit different with hot press paper...
Ah, side cars. There is No way to look cool while riding in a side car.
That frame is a very cool illustration by itself.
Is there a chance that you and (as I heard) your friend R.K. Johnson do some sort of book with ink-drawings together at some point?? It's great to watch what you turn out here! Fantastic drawings. If I might say so!!
niiiiiice crowd. would of never thought to handle it like that.
Manny, I'm using the standard Marvel, art board, which has got some tooth to it. Otherwise, I usually opt for cold-pressed so I can achieve that effect. In addition, I like to let my ink "set" for just a bit, so it's thick by the time I use it.Kyle, I hope I can prove that statement wrong in the coming month. Wish me luck.Looka, as cool as that would be to collaborate on a book, I don't foresee that in the near future. You'd probably see us work together on a story before that happened.Thanks!Paolo
