I’ve never been a huge Jack Kirby fan, but lately I’ve been growing more and more fond of his work. I found this sketch online:
And then “finished” it in Adobe Illustrator and tweaked in Photoshop.
Special bonus post!

Sweet, very strong line work over the Kirby pencils. You capture Kirby’s essence IMO
This is so cool! I’m unfamiliar with the original artist but I’d definitely love to check out more of his stuff. Does he have any published work or just this one sketch?
Unfortunately he died a relative unknown about a decade ago. Very little actual work published.
Ha Ha Ha
Quick question Eric, how do you go about inking sketches you find on the net? Do you print them out and ink over them with trace paper? or is there another method?
Oh wait, you ‘inked’ in in Illustrator.
I’m a dummy who can’t read.
You must have a nice tablet.
Nope, don’t own a tablet. Would like one. I just used a mouse.
As for the traditional inking manner, I would (and have) print out the sketch and lightbox it, inking on a different sheet of paper, though before I owned a lightbox, I would use tracing paper.
