Superman-Batman by quahkm Superman-Batman by quahkm
On the 18 December, 2004, Mr Jim Lee on his forum Gelatometti, wanted all to try inking over his pencils of a Batman-Superman page. I found out about this challenge rather late... only have a day before the deadline. But since i'm such a great fan of his work, i wouldn't wanna miss out on this opportunity in the hope of getting some critique from the Man himself. So with very little time but a lot of enthusiasm i've got it done in time.

Guess what, out of tons of submissions from wannabe artists, mine was chosen to be commented...


"Alan Quah sent in this file of his inks over my pencils. Alan reports it took him about 10 hours. That sounds about right. Click on the link to see the file closer up.

Overall I think he did a damn good job...."

Here's my rendition of Jim's pencils for DC's Superman/Batman - page 12 / Issue 208...

I'm familiar with Mr.Leesí pencil and just to get this out I honestly donít have anything but respect for him, but he doesnít make me water.

On you doing something of his, I find it very striking. Its strong in Leesí style and very remincinet of the DC comic style. I assume that you surely want to be a comic artist/penciler or inker and I think that you have a strong skill in doing so. It has the flow and the lines are very stylistic for DC comics to the point that to critique it would be odd because I usually donít look at DC comics and say ďOMG, thatís horrible!!Ē

Though its your representation, the lines speak too much of Jim Lee but in the sense of your ability to draw, you got it and I donít see why you arenít trying out for a penciler or inker at a company.

Go for a portfolio and get out there, you deserve it.

hey there... i saw your inks at mr lee's blog you are one lucky and talented artist... i tired to do the page to maybe you could critique mine if you have the time? could i just ask what tools you used in this piece?

hey ubod-ng,

Thanks for the compliments... saw yours too. Not too bad my friend.

I basically use pigment ink balliners of diff. point sizes and very little brushes. I like to slowly compose my shadow areas with broader tip artlines. I start my drawing at the finer details first, contrary to the style of pro inker Mr. Riggs. I think Mr Jim Lee does the same with his inks too.

I think you Philipinos are a very talented bunch. Seen a lot of stuff churned out by your countrymen.
Great stuff.

Again my compliments to your work too!

quahkm Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2004  Professional Traditional Artist
Actually there's no fix way for the use my blacks. Sometimes i used brush.. but most of the time i use permanent markers. For this piece my brush is only on my white touch-ups.

Hey Alan!
Congrats on this inking job! really amazing !
And congrats also for Jim's comments....
I'm very happy for you! ;)

It took me approximately 10 hours to do mine too, and I didn't realize before how much a crazy job it was to ink such a detailed page !

Keep it up!

JMB
