    Default Hellboy/Batman by Gaslight - now full colored!

    Hi guys,

    our dear friend Rick kindly invited me to post these inks I threw
    yesterday on Mike's beutiful pencils of the Batman/Hellboy by Gaslight
    (something we started over at the DB). It took me a total of a couple of
    hours, divided among 4/5 breaks during my work on the pages for Black Coat
    book 4 (which I hope you guys are picking up: book 2 will be on the shelf this
    next 24th :))
    Anyhow, I am a bit nervous to post it in here because I know how much you
    guys love the man (and I do too), but again Rick asked for it, so here it goes :)
    I tried to keep it in my style (I didn't want to make a copy of Mike's style)
    and hopefully I didn't ruined his pencils.

    Thanks
    Francesco

    I really like your inking on that piece! I'm trying to place the influence, but I'm coming up with mostly European and or Spanish artists rather than American. Any particular inker you've created an homage to here, or is this pretty much your own thing?

    Thanks for posting it!

    Kelly, Hellcow, bitplayer: thank you, guys :-)
    hellboyone: again, I am glad you approve this, Rick ;-) Thanks! and
    yes, you sould try some inking youself on that piece.
    PsychoFyre: thank you, David, glad to hear I kept my personality while
    doing it ;-)
    Stygian: thank you :-) I can't really do names either: this is actually
    my style (see Black Coat pages, where I added some inkwashes to this style
    of inks) but it is prbably influenced by 20 years of world wide comicbook
    artists ;-)

    Thanks,
    Francesco

    What was the experience like inking it?

    Anything that proved tricky?

    What did you enjoy about it?

    What did you use to do it?

    It's been quite a while since I posted something around these parts.

    Anyway, Francesco asked me to drop some colours on his inked version of Mr Mignola's Hellboy/Batman pic, and here they are:

    gdeo: thank you very much :-D I get the Wrightson name quite few times
    and I am always flattered when I read my name in the same line with Bernie's,
    Kubert, and Raymond :)
    hellboyone: will do it, Rick, and very soon too ;-)
    Hellcow: with all the due respect for the Man, it was like inking
    someone else work, which I do from time to time just for fun, so it was that,
    just lot of fun ;-)
    em...: here I am drooling again: you did such a freking amazing job, brother :-D

    Please, can anyone here show the final colored piece to Mike? I have his
    email since WW Philly but I never emailed him: I didn't want to bother him ;)

    Thanks,
    Francesco

    What Rick said!

    I love the inks and I really love the coloured version. The RHOD is a beautiful focal point. Great stuff!
