from 'Half Dead' to 'Ricochet"

Hey guys, Thanks to Caanan for the invite to participate in this community. My name is Jimmy Bott. The graphic novel I pencilled and inked "Half Dead" hit shelves recently. Written by Barb Lien-Cooper and Park Cooper and published by DBPro/Marvel.

I've just started experimenting with Adobe Illustrator to "ink" my work. Still not getting it feeling quite right. But experimenting with a new medium is a lot of fun and its easy to manipulte lineweights etc.

This is a pinup for my new creator owned project "Ricochet" written by Screen Writer Will Wilson and News Producer Jason Stevens. It's a really fun book and I'm looking forward to getting it out.

Awesome line art! There's a lot going on but you don't get lost in the picture. Great Job and can't wait to see more!

Great stuff Jimmy! I'm not totally sure I like that superclean Illustrator style with your work though. It seems to take away some of the life of your drawings.
