|BATMAN: BLACK & WHITE #5, PAGE 2. 2013.|
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board, 11 × 17″.
I'm back! And my inker/father has returned home safely as well. We had the most wonderful time at La Mole, from all the fabulous fans and record-breaking lines to the infamous Lucha Libre wrestlers. There were too many awesome things to recount here, so I'll leave it to a special post. In the meantime, thank you to all our Mexican fans (and the ever-helpful staff) for making it such a memorable week.
|I had only recently moved into my new apartment.|
As for this week's Wacky Reference, I thought I'd show the extra step I did on some of the Batman pages. I often have to edit things digitally if I'm not happy with the result. My Dad is ever-faithful to my pencils, but my tastes can change after I approach something with fresh eyes. I can't always "see" the final composition until ink is on the page, and so I'll go back to make minor adjustments where needed.
