Based inking style on Alex Toth’s Darby O’Gill and the Little People. Drew with a pen, erased, then used big brush strokes. Judo technique researched/completely stolen from golden age comics feature “Black Cat Shows You How To Do Judo Tricks” by Lee Elias. Agent K’s boots are an accidental mashup of Irving Klaw fetish heels with modern knee-high leather boots.
