Dear Franklin Booth by outsidelogic Dear Franklin Booth by outsidelogic
Dear Franklin Booth,
I'm sorry for so blatantly imitating your style, but I am constantly amazed and inspired by your illustrations.  Sure I study Dore' and Durer, but when it comes to pure ink work, you are the master.  I swear someday I will develop my own style, but until then, I'll just imitate you, ok?
With the utmost respect,
Glenn

This one is primarily markers (.01 and .03), with some dip pen work thrown in.  Original is 11 x14.

Thank you...that's quite a compliment. Hey I notice you're a Dave Stevens fan.  I've been looking to buy one of his books...any suggestions?

There are quite a few really good D. Stevens books out there.    Brush with passion is one of his best, and last books published.    Also
His books, "covers and Stories", and "complete sketches and studies" b IDW are great.

Thanks.  A lot of the parkland around my house is abandoned ranchland, so these posts with barbed wire are actually pretty common.

I don't really keep track, but I would say 15-20 hours on this one.  I'm very much still learning.  As I get more comfortable with the techniques...how to draw grass, how to draw tree bark...I think these drawings will take less time.

What he could do with a pen and brush is really astounding.  I'm going to do a post on him soon, so others can get to know him.

Impressive! I like the composition, with the sky and grass being dark and the cloud making a background for the bird. The drawing is very detailed.

Thanks!  I'm starting to get the value of composition when all you've got are black lines to work with...
