Silver Surfer Galactus commission by WaldenWong
Silver Surfer Galactus commission
Silver Surfer and Galactus was pencilled by Clayton Henry. I added the two planets and the black with stars in the background. The lower planet towards Galactus' right shoulder was strategically placed to save the penciller's original signature, so I don't cover it up with BWS. Vertical double page spread.

Scarlet Spider #19 re-INK-eration
Another commission "re-INK-eration" over original pencils, of Blue Line inks for Scarlet Spider #19 that I did for Marvel over a year ago. Meaning this is my second time inking the same page.

Wolverine and Scarlet Spider side by side by WaldenWong
Wolverine and Scarlet Spider side by side
Here are the double page spread of Wolverine and Scarlet Spider that I've inked twice for comparison. Some of you guys wanted to see both side by side. The top image (where I placed a small cover of the printed comic on the top left) was inked over blue lines. Carlo Barberi scans the pencils, e-mailed it to me, and I printed them out on blue line to ink over. Which was done towards the end of 2013. The bottom image (with my name logo on top left) was inked recently over a year later. An art collector, purchased the original pencils from Carlo, sent me the original, and commission me to ink directly on top of that. So basically, I've inked the same image twice.

With the top image, since I was inking it for Marvel Comics at the time, I'll usually ink over the bleed area. I've indicated that with a blue box. Pencillers will usually draw all the way to the CROP area and end it with a panel box/line. I'll usually keep working going outside of the crop area, Sometimes drawing what I think would have been there and inking off the page sometimes. That extra work I do, will never get printed. The reason I would ink outside the crop area is because I like to have more art than not enough during the scanning process. In the past, there were a few times I've inked exactly to the crop area and after scanning/prepping for production, there's just a small strip of area that didn't have enough art to cover the printed page. Then I find myself going back in with Photoshop and redrawing/inking that page digitally. In this case, more art is better.

On the bottom page, since it was a commission piece, I'll ink all the way to the crop area and ink in that crop line panel boarder that was penciled there originally. Just looks nicer as a commission piece and the art collector will get exactly what they asked for. No surprises there with adding extra art with the extended crop areas. In this case, less is better.

So there you have it, the same page inked separately over a year apart from each other. There are some things I've done exactly the same, and there are also areas that are inked differently. Can you spot the difference between the two? See any different textures and inking techniques? I see a few differences, but I wanted to see what you guys see.

sure.  I understand.  I was just going off on a tangent betting into computer tech.

Oh no, I meant I have so many scans of art work I've done, it would take days for me to post them all with commentary.  I haven't posted anything on my blog since April.  And looking at my folder of published work, there's 35 different projects since.

Gosh.  What kind of computer - PC or Mac?  Discrete graphics card(s)?  What size? 

I'm into the specs because I'm just discovering what it takes to do graphics editing.  It's not just about the processor and the RAM.  A discrete graphics card is important because it does the heavy lifting.  Of course, won't mean anything until I get the software to lift with, haha.  May take a while to get PS CS6 and Illustrator.  So for now that card is just idle.

I agree.  Monthly updates would be best. I have so many files saved up that if I did them all at once, it'll be a few days of work uploading them. Posting stuff monthly will reduce that backlog.

You're way overdue.  You need to do it on schedule, i.e. put up something every month.
Facebook!  Facebook is for suckers. (hehe.  Kidding.  But I have been putting off opening an account.  Digital life is starting to replace real life, and I don't like it.  So I keep the focus here at DA, though I know I'm cutting down opportunity by limiting my accessibility.  Got to draw the line somewhere, right?  And can't search Facebook without a membership, so . . .)
