I like that you bothered to ink this, as inking DOES add to the final drawing, despite what some may say.  The lovely ink feathering could have been done with dry brush, given the final coloring.  But even if the coloring does cover over the inking somewhat, the effort was not wasted because one can still tell the piece has been inked versus colors over pencils.  The final image is much richer, much more lush than a comparable image with no inking.

HAHA! Miracole didn't model for this. In fact, I didn't use a model for either character for this cover.

that sounds like a WILD methodology for the creation. It obviously worked, but how do you feel it would have been different without inking?

I wouldn't have had the crisp lines for the final colored piece. Nor would I have an original to sell and selling original art is a big part of my yearly income.
