This may be my favorite commission to date. I like the drawing but it was the ink washes that made this so much fun to do. I’ve had a friend who has been encouraging me to experiment with washes but I’ve always been afraid that I’d ruin whatever work I applied them to. I thought a Goon piece would be the perfect venue for that as it keeps with the style of Eric Powell’s work. I had never done washes before and I was really hestitant to do it on a piece someone had payed me for. I was sitting there staring at the finished black and white drawing and knowing that it was a finished piece that I could have no shame in mailing off. Yet…I felt that the work was begging for the ink washes. I sucked it up, prepared to redo the whole piece if I screwed up, and proceeded to splash my watery ink all over the work. It was so much fun to do and I think the final drawing turned out pretty good. What do you think?
