I was working on a lion design for the Spider-man cartoon and had spent all day learning to draw lions( I love my job ) and I just turned one of the sketches into a classic old manticore. All I had to do was add some bat wings and a scorpion tail. It was easy!

This is an old Quest page inked by yours truly. I inked it myself because of time and financial constraints but it's easy to see that my inking was functional at best. My huge ego would normally keep me from showing off my weaknesses but I think it's important that skilled inkers, like Dan Panosian, Scott Kolins, and anyone who can actually use a brush, get the credit they are due.
Dwindling budgets and near-sighted editors are killing this wonderful art form and we should all lament it's passing. Photoshop is an amazing tool but I miss hand lettering and real finished inking.
This is a Drink and Draw sketch, pencilled by me and inked with, sadly enough, a ball point pen. My friend and all around bad-ass, Dan Panosian colored it with markers and added the inevitable white-out. So far, this might be my new DND favorite!
