Hi there! Haven't updated this bio since I joined, lol!
My name is James Goodwin and am a self taught inker. I've been at it since 2008.
Currently am inking cover art for Zenescope Entertainment.
My love for the craft and almost daily practice has brought me to the level that I am at now...still learning everyday.
Check out my older inks in my gallery to see how bad I was, lol ;) But, as I mentioned, a desire to better myself and practice definitely helped!
Through my growing process, I have always made hi-res inks available for colorists to practice on. If you find my inking something you wish to use for color practice, please do :D Just be sure to see my Terms of Use below. Crediting the artist involved is very important.

Current Residence: Canada
Favourite genre of music: Bhangra beats
Favourite photographer: me....
Favourite style of art: Comic
Operating System: A quad4
MP3 player of choice: i-pod touch
Wallpaper of choice: my creations! U must see them;P

Sandoval-Art  Gerardo made the killer Venom lines of this one! I really am a huge fan of Venom and really digged the lineart, so thru myself into it!
I went to the wrong art store today, so didn't get my white ink I needed...had to leave a few things I wanted to fix :doh:
Anyways, hope you guys like it and as for 300dpi *Please read and follow my terms of use* Thanks!

Hello friends! Well, as the title states....heading to Vegas in a few hours and should be there after the weekend :) My first time....I've seen too many am kinda nervous and excited, lol. I'll be gone till next weekend and will hopefully arrive home safely. My wife and kids will be with me, so shouldn't get into too much trouble ;) If I have any watchers that live in the area....let me know and we can meet up for drinks and slots! I'm pretty sure a friend of mine here on DA since I've joined, JamesLeeStone  lives there....not sure of anyone else.
Wish me luck as I hit sin city for all it's worth!

Since I wont be on here and uploading stuff I will leave you this.....

Astounding use of inking in your art, I'm self-learning inking aswell and you are certainly an inker to learn from, especially the forms!

Subscribed and eager to see more and GL!
