The inks are great on this pic- they remind me of a lot of the indie comics from the 90s, and the shading style they used. The boots, for example, are really well rendered, and the "glow" on the blade is well applied.
Thanks! Guess it's childhood influences that compel me to do art this way from time to time. As much as I like to color in more cleaner approaches, when I go traditional, I can't help but do heavy inks and lots of hatching/shading the way it used to be done. It's hard to settle on one style.
Nice sword! I really like it!
Thanks! Sort of inspired by the great swords of Monster Hunter games.
Heh. Such an amusingly oversized sword... Nice ink-texturing.
Nice work on the inking here.
Looking good with those inks!
