Cintiq Attempt 2...

So it goes... here I attempt (once again) to practice with the Cintiq.... this time with the master of comic book art: Jack 'the King' Kirby. Kirby was largely responsible (with Stan Lee) for familiar icons such as Fantastic Four, X-Men, etc. More about him can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Kirby
I personally love Jack Kirby's work. I think he redefined comics, and presented the form in a dynamic and powerful way. His 'Kirby dots' were perfect for the Cintiq. In fact, as I worked on this piece, I kept thinking what Jack would do with this technology. His work is mind blowing (especially his cosmic stuff). If you watch the new 'Captain America' movie... check out the technology that is used in it. All of it is based on his amazing work... so here we have it:

First: the amazing pencils by Jack Kirby, and my attempt to dare come close to it's radiance with digital inking... next time: Gene Colan!
