I remember the first time I saw Bernie Wrightson's ink renderings for Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, it made me want to draw with ink in that style. However as a young boy, with an attention span of a gnat, my pursuit of the Bernie look quickly disappeared when I heard my mom call us for dinner. But his illustrations remain with me to this day and whenever I use pen and ink, he's the bar that I'm reaching for.
This ink drawing, from the ones I've uploaded so far, approaches his technique the closest (however, I'm not even near his level) and now that I'm drawing seriously, I hope to continue my pursuit of the "Bernie technique".
