So, I've been digitally inking this Kirby piece... It's going very slowly (the inking you see so far has taken me at least four hours of work). Anyway, I clicked some button by mistake and got this weird halo effect. It's kind of cool, so I thought I'd post it, especially since, given how slowly it's going, I may never actually finish inking the whole piece:
In case you're wondering, I'm inking it digitally a) to get used to my new Wacom tablet, and b) because I adore Kirby, but whenever I've tried to ink some of his work before with real ink on paper (from scans, on a lightbox), I've ended throwing up my hands in disgust. Every line has to be just perfect--I have no idea how Mike Royer did it. This way I can erase each stroke 10 times before I get it anywhere near right--and that's why it's been taking so long.
It has a bit of a "Large Glass" effect about it, don't you think?
P.S. Here it is without Kirby's pencils:
