Page four and the perils of vague pencils.

This is page four from the in the works third issue of Wrestler Zero.  As with the previous post's page I lightboxed this one but made the mistake of not fully realizing the pencils in the layout stage. If I had more experience and knowledge perhaps this wouldn't be a problem but at my current skill level it led me to struggle with several areas in this page.  Overall, I think it tells the story and that's job number one in sequential art but I want the artwork/compositions to be the best I can make them without calling attention to them at the expense of the story's needs.  On to the next one.

Hello everyone. This is page three from the in the works third issue of Wrestler Zero.  This is the first page I've produced using my lightbox to trace my layout. The immediate benefit is a much cleaner original board and one that is easier to ink. The backgrounds were drawn on the board. I inked this with a Pentel brush, Micron Pigma markers in the .002 and .02 size and a large Pitt brush pen.
