The Walking Dead 100 cover inks by RyanOttley The Walking Dead 100 cover inks by RyanOttley
Here's my variant cover I did for the Walking Dead issue 100. I inked the bg on a separate paper with big brushes. The rest I inked with a Kuretake sable hair brush pen.
Also, crazy that this issue sold 350,000 copies. No one has touched those kind of numbers in years. Pretty awesome. Also cool this was one of the covers that sold out. So thanks for those who ordered it!

Ryan

This is absolutely amazing! The speed feel of the background really makes the foreground pop! One of the most impressive
pieces I've seen from you, sir.

Very Nice.
How did you manage to get a nice broad stroke.
I almost thought it was added in digitally.

Everything is great, But what keeps my attention the most is the
brush stroke in the background.

having your own tv show that doesn't involve people in tights obviously has helped the numbers! I gotta say, when I started picking up this book with issue 1 (yes, I've been around for a while) I gotta say I didn't expect it to do this well! Can't imagine what Kirkman and crew are thinking...

great image by the way
