It is an amazing piece. I want to look at it close up, so i can see all the pencil and brush strokes. how many mistakes did you have, With the amount of separation i would expect a few slip ups.

Thanks. The original looks exactly as you see it here. I dont recall any slip ups on this one.

So glad I'm not the guy who has to color Bachalo's stuff. You're inks are phenominal Tim. I love to ink, too. You really make people respect the art.

Ahh...sorry I misunderstood. This is the real cover, both pencils and inks. I ink everything (with the exception of random commissions every now and then) on the original pencils. And your English is great! :)

Thanks, Jonathan. Much appreciated! And dude, I truly LOVE what youre doing with Tony on Batman. You really turned it up a few notches. Youre aces in my book, man!

Thanks man.

I'm no longer on Batman, since issue 674 I think. But I do think I did a pretty decent job over Tony. He's being inked by Sandu Florea now.

Right now I'm on Final Crisis: Revelations (pencils philip Tan) Cyborg (Ken Lashley/Carlos Magno) and Batgirl.

Ah, Tim, you're so damn good it makes me wonder why I bother inking sometimes. Either that or you inspire me to be a better inker...one of the two :-)

Seriously though, don't know if you remember me (Ian Sharman), but thanks for the time you spent all those many years ago helping me with my inking. I'm working full time in comics now, mostly colouring (which I hate...but it's work an it's comics, so I can't complain too much) but I have done some inking work for Slave Labor, and I also ink for my own comic studio, Orang Utan Comics - one of our books has just been nominated for Favourite Black and White Comicbook: British in the Eagle Awards!

Hey Ian. You know, I think I do remember you. What was your e-mail address? Thats how I tend to remember people....sad as that is. :) Thanks very much for the kind words.Im inspired by so many people, it does my heart good to know that I can pass some of that on to others. Congrats' on your Eagle nomination! I think I got one as well now that I think about it. Glad to hear youre still at it. Dont drop that brush, man. Keep at it! Best of luck!!

Hi Tim, my email address back then was psharman@aol.com, it must have been about ten years ago now, back in the heady days of the Comics and Anime forum on AOL. Ironically I've recently dropped the brush for a Wacom tablet...I know...I know...sacrilege! I miss my #2 Series 7 Windsor & Newton! Still, I recently inked a 100 page graphic novel for SLG with a brush, so haven't completely turned to the dark side. Finally broke into the industry late '05/early '06 and I'm pretty well established on the UK indie scene now. My goal now is to get on the radar at one of the big publishers (preferably Marvel...I've always been a Marvel Zombie)...weather that be for inking, colouring, lettering or writing...I'm not fussy (but inking and writing are what I'm most passionate about). Good to catch up with you again! (Oh, and if you'd like to take a look at Eleventh Hour, I'll happily email you a PDF...or send you a hard copy when they arrive, just let me know your email address and/or snail mail address).

'Tis done, Sir! I'd be interested to hear what you think, if you get the time to look at it. Sadly, missed out on the Eagle Award this year...still, there's always next year... The rest of the convention (The Bristol International Comic Expo, during which the Eagle Awards are held) went well, with both 2000AD and Panini (Marvel UK) interested in my inking. Wasted my time waiting in line for an age for the DC portfolio review panel just to have a certain editor (who shall remain nameless) just trot out what was clearly his standard advice to inkers about varying his line weights. He actually pointed to one line, and then another, and said "See, they're the same"...when...uh...they really weren't... I'd heard that a lot of editors don't know anything about inking but I think part of me didn't really believe it and kind of thought, you know...that's surely it's their job to know...and if they don't know, then they'd take the time to find out...as...well...that's their job... Naive of me I suppose. Still, I guess it's this attitude that leads to people thinking that colouring over pencils rather than inks makes no difference (and, speaking as a colourist as well, it probably more than doubles the work that you have to do).

Thanks, Tim. Really appreciate it. I use the same brand of brush (Windsor-Newton) but the smaller tip.
