Right before MoCCA Art Fest 2011, comicbook artist and inker Peter Palmiotti (he’s worked for Marvel, DC, and many other publishing companies; both major as well as small press) sent me a message on Facebook. Think it was Facebook, or an email, can’t remember which. Anyhow, he had an idea for a quickie collaboration. Peter kindly asked if I could do a pencil sketch, in which he would then ink in. I agreed.
If you’ve read some of my earlier blog posts a few weeks back, (https://witchesbrewpress.wordpress.com/2011/04/11/mocca-art-fest-2011/) I did the pencil sketch right after I had spent 24-28 putting together a Psycho Bunny mini-issue. Despite major sleep deprivation, I was on a drawing roll. To quote myself, I was a mean, not-so-lean sketching machine. A few hours later, Peter drops by my table. We’ve been internet buddies for quite some time now. It was on his birthday that we finally met, even if it was only for a few minutes.
Here’s the pencil sketch before inking. Photo taken with my iPhone:
Here’s the sketch after inking:
Looks amazing, doesn’t it? You can also check this out on DeviantArt here:
