THE ROCKETEER by Patrick Stiles

This one is going to have to remain pretty sketchy. There's no time to finish it in grand fashion, this week, but I'll ink and re-post it later. The entire piece included a burning German fighter in the background, but my scanner decided it didn't like it. I think I have a picture of the preliminary pencils on Twitpic.

I don't have a whole lot of time here, so I just want to note that everyone's Rocketeers have been fantastic. If I get a chance to jump on the individual posts and say so, then I'll I do it, but time is at a premium right now.

Nice work, Patrick! I like your take on the helmet, and the spot blacks are well done.

Cool sketch, man. Dig the King of the Rocket Men-style helmet - and those are some wicked-ass boots.

Lookin' Good, Patrick! The spot blacks and the whites are totally going to pop when you add some ink, well done!

Looks great! I'd love to see some inks on this . Heck, maybe I'll print it out and try my hand at it.

Inks are only valid if entered this week ;)
Really cool angle, Patrick, and I dug the airplane on that twitpic you posted.

Cheers,
Francesco
