Hi, Tim. Greetings from Finland.
I'm just curious, have you ever checked how long it takes for you to ink something like this (breaks excluded)? For that matter, have you become any faster over these 18 years? Cause you know the only thing that comforts me right now is the thought that maybe it takes at least a couple of hours or so; that maybe it's NOT a magic trick or an act of god; that maybe I just need to take my time and keep on practising and one day my stuff'll be even remotely as sharp as yours.

I do about a page ( or cover) a day. I typically work about 8 or 9 hours a day, sometimes more, sometimes less. I'd be considered about average in terms of speed. My style and approach doesn't lend itself to speed. I don't know anyone who could ink something like this with any sort of quality in a couple of hours. This stuff takes time. Keep your expectations realistic and focus on quality. You'll speed up over time. And thanks for the kind words!

Love it! It's got to be a nightmare making heads or tails of what's going on in Chris's pages sometimes, no? Impressive that you can help it to read so much clearer.

It can get a bit dicey at times but I actually really enjoy it. I get to do a lot of drawing while working with Chris. He's always given me carte' blanche' to do whatever I wanted. Its a big reason why Ive been able to work with him for 12 years and counting and still have fun with it. Thanks!!!

I love how this crossover is looking to turn into EmmaFrost-badass time :) Teaming her and Spidey up of all things makes for a fun story. I love how unique each lizard design is, rather than just repeating the classic lizard design. Awesome inks as always.

Its funny you say that. I tend to agree but Ive found that people usually either feel the way do or the exact opposite, stating that his stuff is really hard to follow. There isnt much middle ground on the subject.

I COULD have agreed as regards his Steampunk series which first seemed to be hard to get into, but the art was so amazingly full of details that it was eventually far from being a drawback

the lizard people must have been a joy and pain to ink but the texturing you give them here is magnificent, Tim!

Amazing as always. You guys have a great thing worked out on how to handle scales.

Thanks! Chris actually does a lot of line work on top of them in the pencils. I disregard it since I use the white in to black transitions to do the talking. Layering line work on top of it just makes it confusing and redundant. Keeping it simple seemed to be the way to go. Glad you like!
