You have no idea how much I would love to see Wolfman and Colan doing a new Tomb of Dracula book, but alas, it seems Marvel would rather make Dracula into another dime-a-dozen evil dictator type, as if Dr. Doom and Red Skull weren't enough. I'm sorry, but that think parading around Marvel's pages right now isn't Dracula. He looks like a cheap Mortal Kombat character.

Now, THIS? THIS is Dracula.

Out of the four different artists that I've seen ink this, I like your's the best. You've kept a lot of detail in his face, which really draws you in.

Nice. You did a great job on this. I love that you tightened it up in certain parts but retained much of the looseness of Colan's original sketch.

What size did you ink this on? I printed mine on 8 1/2" x 11" paper and I think mine would've turned out better if I did it at a larger size.

Thanks Ron. I printed mine out at 11x17. I imagine the original was drawn smaller but I just went for at at full size.

Thanks Guys. This is the first time I tried to ink anyone else's work.

Colan is one of my heroes. Inking him is a great learning experience. I wish I had time to ink other artists just for practice. It's a good way to challenge myself, not just fall back on my usual tricks.
