Pencils by Kirby, inks & colours 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 completely with a Windsor & Newton #3 sable brush

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