I managed to ink this page in about one hour. When I created the sketch yesterday I figured it would take about 6 hours. But it turns out that I’m a swift inker.
Visual perspective is the challenge in this drawing. The action in the front scenes have to standout from the middle ground action, and the middle ground needs to appear to be in front of the background scene, the guys on their bikes. I can create some of that effect by manipulating Buddy’s wings and having them overlap the background scenes.
Those poor, unforutnate wings. I never draw them the same. One day they’re somewhat realistic, and the next they look like shrunken vestigial limbs that are about to fall off. Lucky for me, in the land of fantasy everything is possible.
