Pencils by Kirby, inks, colours & lettering by Robson

 Thirteen years ago, The JACK KIRBY COLLECTOR printed
a stat of a pencil drawing of ORION - and asked readers to send in
their inked version of the pic.  I never got around to it at the time, but
later - and for my own amusement - I used a sheet of tracing paper to
ink the piece and then decided to have a go at colouring it as well.  I
only had some acrylic inks and felt-tipped pens, so that's what I
used.  So here it is (above) in all its glory.

For good measure, shown below is the black and white
inked version.  When I get a chance, I'll dig out the issue
of JKC and post the copy of the pencils.

Inked with Windsor & Newton #3 sable brush

Nice work! It must be daunting inking The King's pencils, but you've really caught his style.
