Been practicing inking forever and still can't get past my shaky hand, so want to be able to draw this good! *sighs*

Nevertheless outstanding level of artwork AlexGarner, don't think been more blown away by a cover since that Powergirl vs Supergirl issue!

At a loss of words here but amazing level of inking for Batgirl especially, love how the lighting varies so well the black to give her that awesome body, whoa! o0o

You two made a hell of a team, man! I always admired your inks and how well they matched Campbell's style. I was a HUGE fan of the Danger Girl series, and still am. There was a lot of great humor to the lines and the looseness of it. I felt a big difference when his stuff wasn't inked by you. Big fan here! Cheers.

so you were an inker first and then became the artist you are today after a career of that side of the pond? That's very interesting.....

What an odd cover request. Two female bodies minus the faces. How do they figure that would sell copies? They couldn't pick one of the female characters that don't wear a mask? Very odd.

regardless, great job! Your inking inspired many including myself!!!!

It's the Girls man. Bat Girl and Spider-Girl. I agree though, kind of a weird cover concept with no faces. You can't connect to it.

I was never that into Wizard (buing it anyway) but I always made shure to check out the covers. If I liked the cover, I would buy. I happened to be broke when this ish hit the stands or I probably would still have 10 copies of it :D

I noticed someone earlier posted that they were gonna snag for coloring. I was wondering what the rules were on that? I'm a lousy colorist but I try and this is a very different inking style than what I'm used to practicing on so I was wondering if it's ok for me to color?

I always felt that you were the best inker to be paired with J Scott, but I've been really liking the way you've developed towards your current digital work.

A nice contrast to the Gen-13/Batman cover you posted. Not nearly as much line bounce, and a lot more subdued style with the ink. Still the wonderful organic shapes, beautiful grads and confident lines.

Great stuff, Mr. Garner. I really appreciate your posting your inks.

Thanks so much! Honestly, I actually prefer these inks more as I see some amateurish aspects to the Batman one. Just my personal feelings :)

ashigaru Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2010  Professional General Artist
I see your point. The Gen-13/Batman has a certain frenetic energy to the inks; depending on what you're trying to accomplish, that can actually work in your favor, or against you, depending on the action in the image.

Still, they're both great, and certainly carry a lot of your signature inking style.
