Want to feel humble? Practice inking over old Alan Davis pencils. I guarantee, you'll see just how far you have to go in your art!
Still, it's a good kick in the butt. I went to his website and downloaded a few of his unpublished pencil drawings, and inked this in MangaStudio, colors in PhotoShop.
Davis is one of my art heroes, and he draws some of the most beautiful females in the world. Since I usually ink my own work, I take certain liberties with my pencils. Here, I worked to be as true to his pencils as possible, not veering off his model at all if I could help it. It's good practice for me to really study details of what he sees as important and to keep things clean and fluid, like his favorite inker Paul Neary does so expertly.
