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.

Nice job, Gabe. You really did justice to the pencils. Gene Colan is not the easiest person to try and ink and you kept the peice lively.
