In honor of Superman/Batman #37 going on sale today (that's right kiddies...go out and buy lots and lots), here's a quick lil drawing I put together today inbetween the workload.

Superman versus Darkseid.

Blue pencil sketch and Pitt brush pen inked.

The bold brush lines you use really convey a great sense of movement. Great work!

Wow that's great like others have said has that Bruce Timm feel, reminds me of the first or was it second episode of Justice League season two.

Thanks man. Brush is one of those things I'll probably never get a comfortable handle on...even brush pen like this. More of a nib guy, but fun to keep trying.

Thanks. Yeah I love all those animator/comic artists that came out of that show. So many greats...Timm, Del Carmen, Cooke, Murakami, Glines, and so many more I'm forgetting. And of course there's Mignola and Caldwell and many others I enjoy. The ability to convey power and emotion through the limitation of fewer lines, rather than too much overhatching...the animation style....just love it.

Same here... I'm an animation guy, but I'm putting out my second comic next month at Comic-Con. I'm trying to capture the same type of thing with the inking of my pages, although my characters are much more cartoony. Any suggestions as to how to ink the very 2D style but with a sense of depth? Also, if you're going to be at Comic-Con, check us out at small press S11. I'll also be speaking on a panel for CAG on that Saturday at 12:30 (don't know the room # yet). Hope to see ya there.

I've never actually felt very comfortable inking an "animation style" even though I draw in one. I think it's because most animation (2D anyways, as well as when that style is in comics) tends to have a very simple holding line for the art...non variation. In other words: coloring book style....either super thin or constantly thick. Being able to have some variation of thick-to-thin will definitely help push and pull the art out to the viewer. Don't know what I can recommend other than see what artists are doing it right out there, and then think to yourself...how are they making it work, and apply it to your own art.

Cool, thanks! I know what you mean about the "coloring book" lines. That's how I had done it in the past, but it just doesn't pop. Thanks again.

Aside from having his hand in creating practically all the major comics characters from the big 2...he just had a visual style that just jumped off the page. I just love that way of making his 2D art appear 3D as it reached out at ya. As well as all his lil stylizations and great inkers that worked over him.

Yep, he along with all the other animated artists that grew out of that era, were and are such a huge influence on me. I remember when the Batman Animated Series first debuted my senior year in high school. Had a huge affect on me.

definitely, the influence of that show was huge.... probably the first north american cartoon with more mature themes and a retro style that flew in the face of the popular hyper-detail comic artists of the time

i just have trouble ripping off timm... and it just looks so simple;)
