just wanted to add...( yeah i know, this is Tims deviant art.....lol)

That in the comic at that time there were 2 Destros running around. Hence the reflection.

and AMEDYR, hmmm.......Scarlet has red hair, Gillian has red hair ( well Scully does) .... there's a conspiracy here.


or a certain penciler might just be a X-files fan. ( good eye ya got there...LOL)

A couple questions, if I may: first do you do the screentones yourself, judging whether to add them or not? And second, is there a cheat you can do for the cross-hatching in the backround?

TimTownsend Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2008  Professional General Artist
The zip-a-tone was added by me, my decision. As for the rest, there are no "cheats" in real inking. We do it all by hand, line by line.

Oh man! You guys don't get paid enough. I look forward to more! I love your inking. You've been my favorite inker since I started reading comics. You should teach the guys working for Udon a thing or two. I can't stand their inks...

AAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!

I grew up with Action Man, Action Force and stuck with it through all the changes (action joints for some vehicle crews, action joints for everyone, Kenner killing it in Europe to pus M.A.S.K., it's return as simple Action Force, the shift to [link] the Action Force and then plain [link] before it died off in Europe once more, and I could only get my fix annually with an expensive trip to Forbidden Planet in Dublin (nearly a day's travel away)), and now I'm looking at this going `That's thingy... Major Blood? And that's... um... who is that...?' Damn you, I'll have to take a trip to my parents' house and rummage the attic where my 200-odd figures are (complete with the backing cards for most of them)...

i'm not really a fan of mr. sharpe's work in comics but your inking made this peice good. you're a good compliment on his work.
one thing that bothers me is the reflection on destro on destro's mask. why is that so?
