Arkham City Catwoman by Chuckdee Arkham City Catwoman by Chuckdee
This was the first time I got to draw Catwoman on the Arkham City series, and my fist time EVER drawing her in a comic book.... I don't think I've ever drawn her more than 5 or six times in my entire career.... well, at least up to this point... drawing character with 'shiny black' outfits is pretty fun, BUT a pain in the butt to fill in all the little black areas ... that just becomes an exercise in patience! :)

anyway, I was pretty happy with the way this page came out, so here ya' go!

The characters are obviously amazing, but I also love the attention to detail in the vehicle, and it's interior.

I would love to see these panels only in pencildrawing, however you inked them perfectly with a very good taste.

What do you use when you ink?

I never do tight pencils... I just do a rough and start inking from that! ... otherwise inking becomes too boring for me! :)

First: it's great that you answered so soon!

However, I understand...infact, if the inker is the same person that does the pencil drawing, it make sense!

Just another question, feel free to answer when you want (obviously..)
I'm studying principally concept art stuff, but I'm also thinking about comics, so: do you suggest to learn how to ink? I mean, can it make the difference for an editor (maybe he could probably think: "here's a person who can do two works in one, less time spent, less people to pay" ahah)

I don't know if inking would make a big difference, comics are changing quite a bit recently... the MAIN thing I really like about a nice outline on figures is that it really helps with the flow of the storytelling... I've usually found 'fully painted' books to REALLY lack that flow of story-telling.... You don't have to do 'fancy inking, it can be simple stuff like what CHEEKS does, OR if you look at some of the GREAT European comic-masters, they keep the line art simple, and they render in color.... I just find that you REALLY need some 'holding lines' to have better flow from panel to panel.... otherwise, every panel becomes an illustration, and the 'eye' stops too much, and you totally screw up your composition flow that way :)

hope my answer helps! :)

oooh, and money-wise, if you pencil and ink your stuff, you get paid for both jobs! :)

Again thank you for the fast answering!

I strongly agree with what you say about storytelling!

I think I'm really goin' to learn some inking process, yeah yeah

don't worry about doing anything 'fancy' unless you feel like it.... specially if you're more comfortable rendering in color: all you gotta do is just render your 'main shapes' with a micron marker and Voila! :)

You mean: doing all in colors and then make the main shapes pop out with a linework with a marker?

Yeah, also, this is a good suggestion

But, you know, speaking about comics, I'm searching "my way", in the sense that I'm slowly finding how I want (and I "feel" let's say) things to appear. I'm working on my pencil style right now, because I love drawing with pencils and I really want them to stand up nicely

By the way, no kidding, you and the master Jim Lee (I'm studying his "Hush" in the unwrapped edition, only pencils), are my big inspiration right now, this is the reason why I'm posting these questions to you
