devgear's Profile Picture
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

I posted this on my FB yesterday...just thought I would share it here as well.
I had some cover art I was inking for Zenescope last night....quite a lot of black in the background. I lined in the details and gave my daughter (she is 10) the job of filling in the blacks. She was extremely nervous, because she knew this was going to be a published piece....but I put my trust in her and let her work on it for awhile. She did great :D
It's great seeing your children wanting to be involved and being inspired from what you do.

MARCIOABREU7  Marcio made the killer lineart of this one.
I've been following Marcio for many years here on DA and loved this one as soon as I saw it! Very cool art :D
Used a .1 micron throughout this....found a very broken  one to help throw the nib like lines. Brush pen for fills.

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!
