Some leg

A bit rough and very ham-handed.  I really liked the pose but did not have any success with it.  Oh, well.

Cast shadows

I could've worked on this one for an hour, maybe more.  I was so intrigued with the strong highlight on her back and arm and the intense cast shadow that I just wanted to keep pushing the contrast further and further.  This was the most fun for me out of the session.

Final sketch of the night

I was having fun with the cast shadows for a lot of the night.  This was a blast to work on.  A little more time to get the face in and her right hand would've been nice, however.

Arm study

The angle and perspective of the figure was really fun for this one.

RIP Bernie Wrightson

Another member of the mythical "Studio" has left us.  He was very ill at the end of his life and I can't help but feel relief that his suffering has ended.  He left us with some of the most glorious inked images ever done.  Of course, Frankenstein was his masterpiece but there was no shortage of his brilliant work, mostly in the comic book realm.  Along with his vast amount of horror output he also did some humorous work as well as inking my favorite tale of The Shadow, "The Kingdom of The Cobra".  Along with Al Williamson and Jeff Jones, Bernie influenced my inking to probably the greatest degree.  Goodbye, Bernie.  Say hi to Jeff for all of us.

A little study

I like the simple shape and shading of the belly on this one.
