Blast from the Past: Ghost Rider Pencils
Here are a few pages from one of the issues of Ghost Rider that I worked on back in the 90's. It doesn't seem that long ago, but it's pushing 20 years now. The stories were kinda' fluff but he was a fun character to draw. I inked this issue myself but I did the pencils pretty tight anyway---and I still like some of this work, though I have changed and grown as an artist and would approach some of this work differently these days. I did this after leaving work on Batman, which was really not that much fun to work on with the whole Knightfall storyline and that horrible costume Azreal wore. But that was the way it was back then and financially it was a great time to do the book.
