So, my buddy J-Skipper
did a little journal detailing his "DA Story", and I've seen a few others around DA do the same, so I figured I'd follow suit, like a lemur to the cliffs edge!
Anyone who knows me, knows I'm a giant comic book nerd. At one point, I was one of those guys that you could ask "which issue was Thor entombed in ice by the Destroyer" and I'd be able to answer; I had a plethora of useless comic book trivia in my brain. That translated into a love of art, which I followed all through grade school, high school, and into college.
Originally, I wanted to pencil comics, but laziness took over, and in the resultant free time, I found inking. I began watching, studying, drooling over what Inkers were doing with the penciled pages. I had some free time at work, and needed to fill it with something constructive, so I picked up a pen and began my attempt at inking.
Needing a place to gather feedback on what I was doing, I found DA; I started a gallery, began watching some pros & amateurs alike, and thus here I am. I continue to learn the inking trade on a daily basis, and continually attempt at becoming better with my tools. I believe it's the uphill battle, where one will never achieve the peak of greatness, that continually drives me to WANT to ink, LEARN to ink, and even help out others with the little I know; I just want to be a good/solid artist, and with help from the DA community, I think I may be on my way.
My FIRST EVER inks:
I've come along way, with a long way to go, but I'm getting there!
