Here's the Abe Sapien piece I did for Multiversity Comics' "31 Days of Abe" to promote their Evolution of Abe Sapien contest! Good luck to everyone who entered!

Also, I uploaded the hi-res of this piece for any colorists who want to take a crack at it. Color away!

Thanks so much! I'm very glad you like my work.

As for inking, I hate to sound cliche, but learning to make consistent lines really is a matter of practice, time, and experience. The more you draw, the better you'll get! Sometimes I find it helpful to simply practice drawing lines on a page. Don't worry about drawing anything specific, literally just draw lines. Practice the repetitive motion of laying down lines, curving them, straightening them, crossing them. See how thin you can make them, how thick, how many times you can place them in a row, etc. It will build muscle memory and understanding. Hopefully that helps some!

It looks amazing! I think I might die of excitement if you drew a Mignola story for Hellboy.

Suzie, Suzanne, whichever, whatever! I don't mind.
