Shane--sorry, man, it's there from a couple years ago, when you generously shared your own discoveries about inking--and your own brush work is a major inspiration for me, by the way--right after explaining you wear a Bob Cratchit style glove with the fingers cut off so as not to get oil from the heel of your hand on the work you asserted rotating the page to maintain control was ultimately "confining", I distinctly recall your use of that word, and while you may not have said "professional", the implication was really accomplished inkers didn't need to do that.
But I"m working from memory here, and no one's happier than I to hear rotating the page is acceptable practice.
Oh, hang on...I'm suddenly remembering a conversation from a while ago with a friend of mine who as a kid grew up living next door to Harry Lucey. This friend told me later in life Lucey would would wear a glove as described above while inking because he'd developed an allergy to the ink, it irritated his skin.
Well, as a stay at home dad with the care of a three year old boy all day, and his three month old brother half the day, I don't have the time to go searching CARTOON PARADISE for the thread in question, so if I've totally mixed up what you wrote with what he said, I'm sorry, Shane, but I'm still so sure...
Anyway, about head-shots; a while ago there was an ebay offering that was a Black Canary portrait by Bruce, and the rhythms of the lines describing the hair were just gorgeous! Thought I'd saved the image, but it's not in my files, I was wondering if anyone else might've grabbed it, and could post it?
